    "Steal Magnolia's" :smile:

    The Hit 1985
    This is an early movie by Stephen Frears starring Terrence Stamp and John Hurt. The ice veined hitman (Hurt) is sent to Spain to fetch a stool pigeon (Stamp) who has been in hiding for years, and must bring him back to the big boss for punishment and execution. Of course there's a sly twist. A black comedy, scenic road picture with wonderful acting.

    A flick to double bill nicely with Sexy Beast.

    And if you like the hitman genre, see an old B classic, Charles Bronson's The Mechanic, 1972. Jan Michael Vincent is apprenticed to the old master.

    Beetlejuice, The Thomas Crown Affair (newer version), Boondock Saints, Matrix Triology, Bond Movies, Gone in 60 Seconds, Lord of the Rings, Spaceballs, Dodgeball, Anchorman, The Producers, Rent, Pirates of the Caribbean, Finding Nemo, and yes I'm a sci-fi geek at times....so the entire set of Star Trek Movies, and technically the sextet of Star Wars despite the fact that the original 3 totally owned the latter 3.

    Yes!! "Shawshank..." and definitely "Thomas Crown Affair" - sweet! "Matrix" among the greats (hey, shouldn't I be underlining the title of movies?) but at times too full of "wordy mishmash" (Still trying to figure out that bit in the white room full of TV screens with "The Architect" - wtf?)

    Oh...porn? There's been some great amateur vids by Homegrown Video(featuring a cutie named Deanie i think). A few rare old classics: "Fullfillment" - starring J. Holmes. Something called "The Analyst" (self explanatory) "The Devil Inside of Her" (don't recall who was in that one - been too long). Also "Deep Inside Annie Sprinkles" (and sprinkles she does).

    Marty with Ernest Borgnine

    Blazing Saddles from Mel Brooks and with Mel Brooks (and Harvey Korman who can do no wrong in comedy)


    Slow Dancing In The Big City with Paul Sorvino (I was in lust with Sorvino at the time and walked through part of their shoot in New York down by The Riviera near 4th street--it's the Riviera now, don't know if that's what it was then). A rather drab movie but I'd watch it again--I still have a thing for Paul Sorvino.

    First time I sobered up I saw Full Metal Jacket and have seen it a dozen times more since.

    Pittsburgh--a lesser known John Wayne film with Marlene Dietrich


    absolutely love Bus Stop with Marilyn Monroe and Don Murray.



    I Am The Cheese...a not so widely known film also with Don Murray.


    Pocketful of Miracles with Glen Ford and Bette Davis, which of course leads me to What Ever Happened to Baby Jane and also The Whales of August.

    Also quite moved (yes to the point of occasional tears) by Tell Me That You Love Me Junie Moon.

    Then for some weirdness, there is the Margot Kidder/Charles Durning Sisters--strange film dealing with conjoined twins and--well you'll have to see it to find out what can go wrong when you win carving knives on a game show. This was a Brian DePalma film which leads me over to Obsession, another DePalma film which had Cliff Robertson and Genevieve Bujold. Cliff Robertson therefore leads me to Charley, based on the novel Flowers For Algernon by author Daniel Keyes.

    Quite a few other movies I liked and loved, far too many to list here.
