Best adventure - Raiders of the lost Ark - started whole new adventure style.

Best spy - For Your Eyes Only, 007 at his very best, great scenery, plot and music.

Best western - Hard to pick - but John Wayne in Red River, or Tom Selleck in ANY of his westerns!

Best oldie nostalgia - American Graffitti - right in Modesto California, on the same Saturday night streets and era where *I* grew up!

Best detective/car chase - Steve McQueen, Bullit.

Best Sci-Fi - Star Wars - started whole new genre and series.

Best love story - hard to pick, but Sleepless in Seattle is right up there.

I was stationed in Wurzburg, Germany in the 80's, home of the 3rd Infantry Division at the time. You had to watch "To Hell and Back" when you in-processed to the division!

Yup, those two were my initiation into Social Satire.

Now all I need to do is watch C-Span for a few minutes...............

My favorite quotes were: "Somebody's gotta go back and get a sh**load of dimes!" - Slim Pickens



Actually there were so many great lines in that movie they were all my favorites!

Ted.

Not for kid. Even if one of the main characters is a teddy bear. It's pretty much non-stop profanity and adult humor from start to finish. If profanity offends you don't watch this movie.

For a well acted enjoyable flick, my fave is "Giant" and overall favorite is "Citizen Kane".

Familiarity breeds contempt but Shawshank Redemption remains very high on my list.

Critics were mixed on The Usual Suspects but Keyser Sosez was one heck of a villain and Verbal Kint a great salesman.

As quirky movies go - Napoleon Dynamite had some pretty memorable lines. Vote for Pedro!

While not the best movie by a long shot, we really enjoyed The Big Year. It has motivated us to make birding a part of our full time adventure when the time comes. The obsessive behavior of the birders reminds me of the RVer obsession with travel and our way of life.

As noted above ... Das Boot" is an excellent movie worthy of the "best movie ever" title. As is an older movie called 7 Days in May - starring Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster. Many of the Hitchcock movies could be considered too. More recently, I would say The Departed.

A Fistfull of Yen

OK, it's not a real movie but a featurette within 'The Kentucky Fried Movie'. One of the best parodies of martial arts movies ever done.

Best line: Said with a Chinese accent and a lisp - 'You think dis is chawade?', 'Takes todal consentwation!'.

Sheesh! There's been so many great movies I would be hard pressed to define my top 100.

As much as I like Robin Williams 'RV' is not on my list. 'House of D' is up there, so is 'August Rush' and 'What Dreams May Come'. So is 'The Stand' even though it's a miniseries. Think of it as a 6 hour movie.

Another great "family" movie, great for grand kids is Secondhand Lions. Duvall and Caine are great.
