I was thinking a few minutes ago about how I love to see a new friend's favorite films as part of the process of getting to know him or her. (Also, I'll take any excuse to rent a good movie.) So if you would, please list a few of your favorite films, in order or not, and we can all learn a little bit more about each other. Some of us might even get some good rentals out of it.

My favorites, in approximate order: Chinatown, Casablanca, Do the Right Thing, Platoon, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Heat, Natural Born Killers, and the original Drunken Master.

Well I'm not as good with lists as the rest of you.Sophie's Choice. Being John Malkovich. I'm sure a bunch of better things i should have remembered but didn't.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off. War Games. Memento. The last Indiana Jones movie. While we're on the subject of Harrison Ford, Regarding Henry. Alien Trilogy. Happy Gilmore/Billy Madison (Com'on, they're the same movie). Ace Venture Pet Detective cracked me up in the day. Liar Liar is sappy, but worth it. Night at the Roxbury (best SNL spin off movie ever). The first Jurassic Park, before all became even more ridiculous. Fight Club (although it began a run of "mind-fuck" movies). That's all I got right now. Mind blank.

Oh. I never cared for the blues brothers.

Scott Hardie | June 28, 2003
Me too, maybe because all of Chicagoland tried to drill love for it into me, like with Ferris Bueller's Day Off. I'm gonna go with Office Space as the best SNL spin-off. (I sense a poll coming on...)

Anna Gregoline | June 28, 2003
Dammit, Scott, I forgot about Office Space, which I even own. D'oh. I forgot it was on SNL first too.

It started as Mike Judge's cartoons on SNL.

For some reason I feel compelled to clarify, Scott, that my love for Ferris Bueller's Day Off has nothing to do with it's setting in Chicago.

People that didn't know me then, say the same thing. My reputation must have followed me.

Sorry Lori; I didn't see your question before. I like the unpredictabilty of the jokes: Many hit you from out of left field. Its spoof of a movie-style gangland execution literally had me down on the floor laughing. And thankfully it's not especially quotable, so it won't suffer cultural burnout like Monty Python. Rent it sometime and see what the fuss is about; I bet Ray would like it too.
