    I understand. That's why I prefer movies based on actual/historical events.

    I can watch science fiction if it's cerebral not shoot em up.

    I love 2001 (A Space Odyssey), Clockwork (Orange), Apocalypse (Now.)
    Jacobs Ladder was pretty intense.
    A very underrated film which is amazing, Sucker Punch. (music is great)
    David Lynch films, very cool. Blue Velvet, awesome.

    Casino and Goodfellas, we all love.


    And comedy, I am a big laughter. LOl


    I think this is a complete list for 50 years.
    What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.

    I can watch both.

    Three great movies!

    Jacobs Ladder was pretty intense.
    You're right. The first time I watched it I found it VERY disturbing.

    A very underrated film which is amazing, Sucker Punch. (music is great)
    I've never seen it.

    David Lynch films, very cool. Blue Velvet, awesome.
    I have "Blue Velvet" and "Lost Highway". I found them both unsettling the first time I watched them.

    Casino and Goodfellas, we all love.
    They're good, but not actually my cup of tea. I find movies with amoral, unpredictable characters too hard to identify with. My adrenaline gets too pumped and the movies wear me out.

    And comedy, I am a big laughter. LOl
    Comedy is always good. I LOVE the screwball comedies of Howard Hawks, Preston Sturgess, and George Cukor. One of my favorites is "Operation Petticoat" with Cary Grant and Tony Curtis.....an absolutely brilliant movie! Bill Murray's "The Man Who Knew Too Little" is a more recent version of this screwball genre.

    I think this is a complete list for 50 years.
    My list would be larger. I think I own as many movies, DVD & blu-ray, as I own music CD's. Yes, storage is a nightmare. All of my cabinets are full and I have another bookcase filled as well. And like any serious movie nut, I have an entire section devoted to Criterion releases...which is dominated by mostly Japanese films.

    Bad beyond belief.

    Also starring a 13 or 14 year old Scarlett Johansson in a lead role....who did a great job.

    Just watched this tonight. Ok, a bit cliched... OK a lot cliched. But it entertained me. But nothing to write home about. The 7 Samurai was an outstanding movie though.

    Boring in one word.
    The costumes and setting keeps your attention and Aneurin Barnard saves the movie.
