    "The Oracle's" last comment on my Shawshank thread inspired this. So what is your ALL TIME TOP TEN. For ease, if you like a whole series (Like Godfather 1-3), count them as one

    1. Tombstone - Val Kilmer as Doc Holiday and Kurt Russel as Wyatt Earp - CLASSIC!!! The best lines and most quotable plus a great story.
    2. The Godfather (series) I have learned more about business and family from this movie than many could realize
    3. The Boondock Saints "You guys should be in EVERY major city"
    4. The Good, The Bad and The Ugly - "When you have to shoot - shoot! Don't talk."
    5. History of the World Pt 1 - "It's Good to be the King"
    6. The Count of Monte Cristo (The modern one) - I loved the book, but the movie is awesome
    7. Vegas Vacation -"Welcome back Mr Popageorgio"
    8. Payback - "Hubba hubba hubba"
    9. Back to the Future (series) - Marty McFly gave us some fine entertainment for the 80's and into the 90's
    10. Snatch - When Bricktop is telling the clumsy criminals how to dispose of a body and then leads them into the plastic lined room, classic.


    • anything with The Duke (John Wayne)
    • Legends of The Fall (I have felt like Tristian for so many years)
    • Any Will Ferrel, Steve Carrel movie and the comedy Adam Sandler ones

    Keyser Soze, True Romance was a great movie - good call. BTW, I loved Deadwood and the Al Swearengen avatar is cool. My favorite Al quote (and personal outlook) is here

    Casper - Far and Away is a GREAT movie. I love it too.
