Wow, deja vu. :wink:

As already stated elsewhere, Logan's run *is* a good film. - Although I know for a fact that Egbert only likes it because of the one, brief, nude scene... :roll: :P

Mine would probably be:
The Matrix,
Lord of the Rings,
Indiana Jones,
Highlander,
I've also enjoyed the recent Marvel comics spinoffs, although I doubt they'll last. Some of the silly American movies (Ferris Beuller, Old School) are fun too.

All good movies but.....Logan's Run? Ok, I find it safe to add Slapshot to my list.

With Fredo here I can add a Swedish movie named Sällskapsresan.
First one here, last one to leave.

What about Deathproof? :twisted:

Not my favourite, but I really enjoyed it. While I thought Kill Bill was a rather poor movie, Deathproof once again showed Tarantino's talent for writing incredibly engaging stories (even though this one was much simpler than Pulp Fiction or Jackie Brown). And then there's the masterpiece dialogue! Some dialogue sequences are really long and unrelated to the plot but simply great to listen to :) And finally the way the movie's made, the camera, the editing at first made me think the plot is set in the 60s or sth, but then I saw the cell phones etc, and I realised it's a modern story with a retro feeling. Very interesting!

Anyone else seen it?

I just remembered one of my favorites that I forgot to list --- Total Recall.

Drat. How can I do such a list and forget Zulu and the little-known Gettysburg? And Casablanca. And ...
