    O Brother, where art thou?, Second hand lions, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, Blazing Saddles--that movie was so ahead of it's time! The 5th Element--I don't know why, but when it comes on I have to watch it.

    I'm not big into movies. probably my favorites would be old John Wayne westerns, Clint Eastwood westerns (The outlaw Josey Wales), And some of the old war movies (Longest day, tora, tora, tora, Midway, and newer ones Platoon, Heartbreak ridge, Full Metal jacket). The vacation movies were funny, just recorded the Christmas version to watch coming up soon. The old Cheech and Chong movies were hilarious. One I would like to see is American Sniper.

    It depends on the Genre... Comedy (fav) (1) Movie... "Raising Arizona" actor, Nickolas Cage. (2) A British zombie movie... "Shaun of the Dead".

    Both movies are absolutely retarded! Both are in the realm of the "3 Stooges"... except they are slapstick with an education... which is why I love both films.

    I have Dvd's of each, watch them occasionally.

    The Outlaw Josey Wales
    Glory
    The Blues Brothers
    We Were Soldiers
    Saving Private Ryan
    Creed
    Gran Torino
    And, a kid's movie, since that's mostly what I watch...
    Big Hero Six

    Monte Walsh and anything with Sam Elliot are great. Or I should say, anything with Tom Selleck.

    I like a lot of the great western movies, ironically many were based on novels by "Louis L'Amour". I have most of the novels he wrote, over 100. For instance, "Hondo" w/John Wayne, "The Sacketts" w/ Sam Elliot/Tom Selleck. "The Shadow Riders" w/Elliot and Selleck, "Shaugnessy". "Crossfire Trial" w/Selleck, these are movies almost verbatim from L'Amour novels.

    There are actually 17 novels written about the Sackett family. 4 more were movies, 2 starred Sam Elliot. Parts of 6 others were used in films.

    More than a dozen other great westerns were based on novels written by Louis L'Amour.

    Your comment reminded me of on that I read then saw the movie. By the way, no movie compares to the book if you can picture what you are reading. The movie was...

    Where the Red Fern Grows

    That was my favorite book growing up. The movie was not done bad but the book is way better.

    I remembered 3 more L'Amour western novels made into movies... "Catlow" Yul Brenner, "The Quick and the Dead" S. Elliot, "Conagher" S. Elliot. All are excellent movies.

    Your exactly right movies are never as good as a book.
