Is Gettysburg any good? I watched the other one about Stonewall Jackson and wasn't very impressed, neither was my other half who has threatened to leave me if I subject her to four hours of another film like that. I must have read Killer Angels four or five times though, great book. You just have to wonder what a great commander like Lee was thinking, it's almost as if his moral revultion at 'invading' the north sub-consciously caused him to make bad decisions.

1. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
2. Master and Commander: the Far Side of the World
3. Cold Mountain.
4. Pulp Fiction.
5. The Big Country.
6. A Room with a View. (who'd've thought?)

Let's see:

Kelly's Heroes (I can watch this one over and over again...)
Rear Window
Saving Private Ryan
Indiana Jones trilogy
Pulp Fiction

Hmmm, in no particular order
<LI> Apocalypse now
<LI> Remainder of the days
<LI> 5th element
<LI> Dark blue world
<LI> Starship trooper (a good chips and beer film)

I don't have a top 5. Just a film called Police Story.

But theres allot of films I like apart from that one but not a top 5.

In no particular order:

The Good, The Bad & The Ugly.
das Boot.
Fargo (ya!)
Withnail and I ('which f****er said that?')
Donnie Darko
For a few dollar more (worth being in a top n just for the shot involving the spurs being started and stopped by the bandits gun)


04-01-2005, 02:18 PM
In no order....

The Godfather 1 & 2 (*I look at it as one great flick)
We Were Soldiers
Band of Brothers *
The Color Purple
The Iron Giant
Shaft (The score alone is SLAMMIN!!)
Saving Private Ryan
Raiders of the Lost Ark
The Maltese Falcon
Lonesome Dove * (Jones & Duval)

Lonesome Dove? I do respect your choice and I reckon that that's got to be the only worthwhile thing that young Costner's gone done since Dances with Wolves but if you're going to go for a long-gun shooter whose over his fixation with gunplay but is forced to return to a usin' his shootin' irons by land stealin' folk it's got to be Shane you is look in at.

The greatest ever western there ever was is still The Big Country and that's all...

Qutermass and the Pit ! or Five Million Years to Earth in the US. Saw that when I was a kid on a Saturday afternoon SciFi movie show - scared the HELL out of me. Still a great movie.

Here are some movies that blew me away:
Before Sunrise
Bicycle Thief
Tokyo Story
Citizen Kane
Strangers in Good Company

And though I don't rank it among my favs, a good movie for those interested in WWII is "The Best Years of Our Lives" - no combat. The aftermath.

- Der Untergang (Eng.: The Downfall)

- Gladiator
- Battle of Britain
- A Bridge too far
- Steiner, Das Eiserne Kreuz (Eng: Cross of Iron)
- Dark Blue World

04-01-2005, 06:29 PM
Reservoir Dogs
Band of Brothers
Best in Show

Not necessarily in that order. Though Goodfellas is always on the top.
