I still quote the delivery of "the dishes are done, man." to this day, heh. -Double Impact: One of the JCVD movies I have seen at some point, but, like Delierious, dont recall specifics beyond the two-JCVD premise. However, it will definitely be in a JCVD marathon that Expendables 2 has inspired me to have at some point in the near future. -Dutch: Also saw this one a few times when I was younger. Curious to see it again. -Ernest Scared Stupid: The last Ernest film after Goes to Camp, Saves Christmas & Goes to Jail that people actually remember (though not the last released theatrically, apparently). I recall this being a fun Halloween kids flick- and it has some appropriately creepy moments at times as well. However, liking Ernest is a prerequisite, obviously. -Father of the Bride: Pretty funny Steve Martin flick. Seen it a few times, but not for awhile. Movies I (probably) Want See -Dead Again -Defending Your Life -Dogfight -Drop Dead Fred (I understand it's bad) -Dutch (rewatch) -Final Approach -The Fisher King -Flight of the Intruder -Flirting -Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare -Godzilla vs King Ghidorah -Guilty By Suspicion Overall Trends: Christina Applegate moving beyond Married With Children (at least somewhat- the show would still be on the air for 7 more seasons). The first attempt to end the Freddy Krueger franchise with a "final" movie. The rebooted Godzilla series carries forward. Father of the Bride would spawn a sequel as well..
