UGH. Elf got boring because of the 24 hour long marathon on USA.
But I do agree with the Wedding Singer

The Spongebob Squarepants Movie (It's so stupid it's stupid!)
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (enjoyed this unlike most)
The Dark Knight
Needful Things (here we go with the King movies…)
Pet Sematary
The Stand (or at least parts 1-4…or whatever the second to last part is numbered cause I still have to finish it. decent King movie)
The Nightmare Before Christmas (thanks for reminding me PP)


and more…

Yeah, but the Spongebob Squarepants Movie has the Hoff and You've Got Mail only has the Hanks. Just sayin'. (And just playin'.)

Product Placement
I'd give everything for the experience of being inside a cinema during the premier of The Empire Strikes back just to see the reaction of the people when Darth Vader makes his dramatic revealing.
I was there, but I was only 5, so I don't recall the audience's reaction. I do remember when Jedi was coming out all the speculation about whether Vader really was Luke's father and reading some articles that said that Boba Fett was really Luke's father. (And I cried when Vader died. C'mon, I was only 8 when I saw Jedi!)

You know, movies like Hot Rod, Step Brothers, Talladega Nights, I could watch over and over again because I forget all of the jokes. I remember the movie being funny, but all of my friends can quote them and I can just never remember the jokes. But that is partially good because I can watch these movies over and over.

I was there. Just old enough to remember a few scenes in the film, and to remember that I was there.

I don't think it even registered with me that Vader being Luke's father is supposed to be a huge twist. I was still overwhelmed with the fact that HE CUT OFF HIS HAND. HOLY S-T BLACK BARON CUT OFF HIS HAND. BUT HE'S THE HERO. AND YOUNG. AND HE LOST HIS HAND.

I think that's the first time I saw anyone's hand get chopped off onscreen, so graphically. OMG!

Anyways, about TPM… I can watch it over and over, primarily for Qui-Gonn & Obi-Wan. And ofc DARTH MAUL. Everything else in the movie I pretty much tune out.

Oh if Nat Portman in that movie was the age she was when she was in The Professional, that would've rocked. Cuz I can't get over how she's a cradle-robber LOL (she's like 10 yrs older than Anakin LMAO). Naboo women must have elven lifespans.

Oh right… I hadn't thought of the possibility that people might still be recovering from the fact that the hero had just lost the fight, big time. That really was a great movie.

I think she was supposed to be 14, compared with 9 year old Anakin.

But yeah, hard not to think about pedophilia in that movie. But hell, it was OK, right? The girl was the older person. It's only wrong when the guy is older.
Those were my two cents.

Isukun makes a few GREAT points there. The WOW-effect tends to get lost on me - the more so, the more spectacular they are. The Phantom Menace and Matrix Reloaded bored me to death when I saw them at the movies because I knew all the best sequences almost by heart from the trailers. I FELL ASLEEP during the big fight in the city in Transformers. I'm much more likely to remember something that made me smile or laugh, or empathize with the characters.

Here's my list:

Forrest Gump
Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind
The Mask
The Cube
Dark City
Spirited Away
Bedazzled (the modern version)
Fight Club
Lost in Translation
X-Men 2
Befote Sunrise
Terminator 2

There's something about those movies that never fail to keep me on the edge of my seat - even though I know exactly what will happen. I laugh with the characters or feel for them. I watched all of these at least three times. Lost count on The Cube and Bedazzled, at least six times each. Yeah, that movie with Brendan Fraser. It's pure genius. Fraser made a name for himself playing all sorts of goofy, over-the-top characters, like cavemen, apemen, residents of nuclear shelters forced to go back to the society, etc. And Bedazzled lets him play not just one, but several such characters - a Latino drug lord, an over-emotional whiner, a HUGE basketball player with a LITTLE problem, etc. The sad thing is, they edited out the BEST sequence - of him being a rock star. You'll find it on youtube easily, though. BEST… THING… EVER… Anyway… It seems that what does it for me is quirky characters. Forrest Gump. The Mask. Tyler Durden. It doesn't need to be a positive character, either. T-1000 stole the show on Terminator 2. You hated him, but you couldn't stop watching. Same with, say, Wolverine. Asshole? Yes. But a confused asshole who will do anything to protect his friends. Or Mystique… Evil? Yes. But that chick's got a point. Of all LOTR characters, the only two I gave a damn about were Gollum and Merry. And if there was anything keeping me watching Prison Break, it was T-Bag. Creepy allll the way, while all the others turned to the good side at some point. It's those people that you're not sure how you feel about… Love or hate? Pity or awe? I love movies that mess with my head a little :) But not TOO much. I am to this day traumatized by Natural Born Killers. I like stories that force me to empathize with someone I would normally disdain - but that movie was too much.

All of the Harryhausen movies are on DVD uncut, widescreen in all their original glory. I picked up First Men in the Moon in the bargin bin and it was a great piece of pie; you know that thick cherry pie from Delicious Orchards.

Another flash from my childhood I can watch again and again:

Well I ‘ve finally bought Conan the Barbarian on DVD.Finally!
As well as Conan the Destroyer and Red Sonja, but those two weren’t quite as great.

With its wonderful soundtrack by the late Basil Pouledouris (better than anything Waters ever did), scenes beautifully inspired by the late Frank Frazetta, and story inspired by plup master Robert E Howard, it's a lovely film.
One of the best things about it is that for a “fantasy” film it doesn't rely to heavily on the props of the fantasy world, it's very “real”, human, gritty, oily, without the need for too much elaborate special effects or big, expansive acting. It was the perfect film for Schwarzenegger at the time, he played it very naturally and I doubt anyone else would have done as well.

Another thing I noticed was that in the brutal, exciting battle scenes, they're shot very subtlety. You DON'T see gruesome hacked off body part, stumps, blood and guts spurting and flying all over the place. Swords and battlehammers rise,strike down, and then the impact it just off screen as the camera shifts to more fighting action. It's down so well that you don't feel they're pulling back at all, and so it doesn't overwhelm with adolescent obvious gore as in something like Braveheart.

And this line:

Conan! What is best in life?
To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.

Maybe Genghis Khan said it first, but Conan gave it life.
