  1. Tenacious D

    Tenacious D The law is of supreme importance, or no importance

    This is a more appropriate title, IMO.

    You’re going to whip my ass, whenever I next see you.

    Tommy Boy isn’t a great movie, by any cinematic standard, but you’re the first person who I’ve ever heard say that they didn’t like it.

    And Chris Farley? You don’t dig Chris Farley - I’m not sure how that’s possible to do.

    Any not popular ones? Boondock Saints is one I'll rewatch.
    Equalizer too.

    Last Action Hero is criminally underrated and is one I will watch anytime, anywhere.

    True Lies is another of Schwarzenegger's movies that is underrated. Great movie and I laugh my ass off at it.

    NOTE: Great in the sense that I love it, it is not a 'great' movie as in ground breaking or having any deep meaning of the time it was made.

    I've probably seen Christmas Vacation more than any other movie.

    The concept for the movie is actually better than the final product. It is a great movie though. I just don't think people at the time knew how to take it.

    How about movies that were good but should have or could have been great? I’ll nominate V for Vendetta and The Adjustment Bureau.

    RIPD. Best movie ever made.

    Thirteen Days is really good, if you can ignore Costner’s attempt at a Boston accent.

    Had to google that puppy.

    chavisut Dan Mullen Fan Club President

    I watched the one scene a lot as a young man.
  19. A-Smith

    A-Smith Wes Rucker Fan Club President and Chief Fellator

    The original 3 Indiana Jones's will get DVR-ed in the Smith house every time (and watched if I can get to them before the woman deletes them).

    Old movies I like: True Grit, Big Jake, The Man who Shot Liberty Valance, North By Northwest, Dial M for Murder, Ben Hur

    Some more recent ones for me:
    Zero Dark Thirty (Yeah I know it's not super accurate, which has ruined it a little for me because when I originally watched I thought it was the greatest thing ever.)
    Fellowship of the Ring
    The Prestige
    The Big Short

    and of course the goat, Happy Gilmore.

    The Cowboys (John Wayne movie) is a fantastic movie as well.

    I like Rio Bravo better than El Dorado.

    And I will also watch The Quiet Man anywhere, anytime.
