When my kids were younger I told them about the drills we had when I was in grade school. The nukes are inbound, get under your desk.


We were told to kneel down and face the wall in the hallway of the school and cover ourselves with our coats, I don't recall ever being told exactly what we were hiding from, except that it was an "enemy attack" of some sort. I guess the teachers didn't want to tell us that we could be vaporized by a nuclear bomb. Someone might have figured out that our coats wouldn't help much. :o

Favorite line from "Dr. Strangelove":
"Gentleman, you can't fight in here!! This is the War Room!!"

Just watched The Dark Knight and it far surpassed the hype and jumped onto my all time favorites list. Heath Ledger was incredible. Damn shame.
Braveheart
No Country for Old Men
The Indiana Jones series - except for the second one with the annoying kid and more annoying woman who whimpered and screamed through the whole thing.
The Bourne series
Apocalypto - I thought that this one would suck, but once I started it, I couldn't stop.
Amadeus
The Saw series (if you want to cringe the entire way through a movie, any one of them will do)
American History X
Sweeney Todd
Schindler's List
The Corruptor
The Departed
3:10 to Yuma
Many of the Bond movies.

That's the short list.

That, is actually one of my least favorite ones as well. Although, it does have some good lines in it. Specifically, "We. Are. Going. To. Die." But that is actually the "prequel" of the series and falls before "Raiders of the Lost Ark".

Here's my list:

Star Wars (entire series)
Indiana Jones (entire series)
Batman (1966)
Batman (1990)
The Dark Knight
Batman Returns
Full Metal Jacket
When Trumpets Fade
Saving Private Ryan
The Book of Eli
Tron
Tron: Legacy
Superman (entire series)
Half Baked
Office Space


Anyway, I've got more to list so I'll stop there.
