    was driven by the director's massive ego

    So I guess you'll dislike Episode I-III... ;)

    OMG Drew you made me realize one good movie I totally forgot!!

    OFFICE SPACE!!!!

    Shame on me for forgetting that! That movie rocks!!!

    There's just so many memorable lines from that movie...favorite dude out of them all has got to be the squirrely guy, Milton Waddams. Here's a funny excerpt I took off the net from him talking in the movie about his stapler lol...hes always complaining about his stapler.

    Milton Waddams: [talking on the phone] And I said, I don't care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I'm, I'm quitting, I'm going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were merry, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire.

    Skye I'm glad you like Spirited Away. I can rewatch it again and again and still enjoy it.

    And, I'm not sure why, but watching that movie dredged up the same feelings that I experience when I play exceedingly excellent role playing games, such as Final Fantasy III/VI on my SNES way back in the day: those of exploration, adventure, and fun.

    Yes I agree.

    Mary, I love the soundtrack also of both it and "Princess Mononoke" and wish I could find more by the composer Joe Hisaishi. I told everyone I like unusual music! ;)
    Rebo, you mentioned "The Day the Earth Stood Still." Now that's a name I haven't heard in a long time. That movie scared me as a child. OK, I was an impressionable kid!

    I liked "13th Warrior"...although I've heard the book is better.

    I try not to have all recent/current movies on my top 10 lists...although many are going to be considered "classics" IMO (Saving Private Ryan)

    The Blues Brothers...best car chase of ALL TIME!

    JediKnightPasJoDacle Why would she be kidding about liking The Emperors New Groove. Is there something wrong with it? Maybe it has some special meaning to her.

    The Emperor's New Groove is an awesome movie. Never fails to make me laugh, I love David Spade.

    I like so many movies but don't have time to make a list to post here. In general I'm easily entertained.

    Hello Ben...welcome to the boards!

    I don't think anyone is trying to speak badly about "The Emperor's New Groove"...personally, i was never really interested in that one (not a David Spade fan at all) But I think Mulan and Hercules were 2 of Disney's better movies from that era.

    The LOTR series is excellent and Spiderman is the best superhero movie. I also like Clint's man with no name series...but I think other than those would be Resevoir Dogs. There are too many great lines in that movie. Another movie with great lines is Heartbreak Ridge, although it lacks greatly in realism for the subject matter of force recon.

    HAHA, HEARTBREAK RIDGE IS AWESOME!

    The best is when Mario Van Peebles and the rest of his squad find out what shirt Gunny is going to be wearing the next day and they all show up wearing the right shirt.

    My personal favorite part is when he punches the Swede out and says in that gruff voice..."Negative JoHanson."
