    Well, I think we've had plenty of movies that stink, so let's try for some that are good and should on our movie rental list. I'll start them off. I really didn't put them in any kind of order....

    The Battle of Britian
    We were solders
    Glory
    Black HAWK DOWN
    Miracle

    Oh yeah, ladies, please don't put too much mushy films on here like Stella or anything, keep it simple please..we really don't want to vomit.

    war movies are good... I love Platoon - especially the part when William DeFoe bites it, classic scene

    My favorite movies of all time are:

    Halloween(Probably the reason I got interested in being a psych)
    Hair never saw the Broadway musical, but the movie makes me want to cry every time I watch it.
    Fried Green Tomatoes(I just had to put a "chick flick" on here)

    Bottle Rocket
    Shaun of the Dead
    Some Like it Hot

    and many more i just can't think of right now--

    I agree on Black Hawk Down, i don't know what it is about that film, but i can't help but watch it, i'm not normally into ridley scott, but everytime it comes on i have to watch it-- and then cry and cry at the end-- i'm such a sucker....

    thank you Cyndi! I had Some Like It Hot on the brain and then I blanked when it came to typing it...

    Only seen Black Hawk Down once, don't remember much but being aggrivated about the main guys pants which were way to loose for a real man in the military. Other then that I have good memories of it.

    Oh another GREAT movie: Enemy at the Gates
