As a movie addict, I want to know which movies I havent seen are worth seeing and why.
Mind sharing some opinion?

without doubt, 2001: A Space Odyssey

unfortunately, most asians i know don't have the patience for it. you really need to watch it, rather than talk over it!

Agree with you Kuku but I prefered the "Time Bandits"

Because it's sick in a nice way...

Also "Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back, because I'm sick!

Good choice. Can't beat Kubrick vs Ligeti. Star Wars is just kids stuff compared to the awesome vision here. Just got Sunshine on DVD which seems very much a 2001 inspired flick.

My All-time top 5:

"I love the smell of Napalm in the morning [sniff, sniff].. It's smells like ... VICTORY!"


2. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

MacMurphy (Jack Nicholson):"You looney toons wanna watch the World Series??!!
Martini (Danny Devito):"I do Mac. I'll bet a dime."


3. Dog Day Afternoon

"ATTICA, ATTICA, ATTICA...!"

4. Pulp Fiction

"Bring out da Gimp..."


5. Taxi Driver

"..you lookin' at me?"

WOW CHEWWY!! I gained a greater measure of respect for you! Freebie and the Bean is my favorite comedy of all time and hardly anyone else has ever heard of it...

"Serpentine Shelly... Serpentine Shel..."
"So there's a lot of red tape in the bush? ... Ah, you wouldn't believe how much red tape there is in the bush."
"There're FLAMES on my car!"

AND NAGA:
Repo Man is indeed in my all-time top-20, Harry Dean Stanton is great. I just saw a so-so movie last night called "Alpha Dog" but Stanton had a good role in it. It's worth watching just for the scenes he's in...
