    Even Bruce Campbell said that he cant watch it without rolling his eyes. You ever seen the extended version of Army of Darkness? That one kicks utter ass.

    Well this isnt a classic yet but my vote is for "The Big Lebowski". The John Goodman character in that movie IS my father. No question. Here some quotes....

    As for classics no one beats......

    Not one John Wayne movie in there. For shame. :shadedshu

    Cool, as a big movie buff it is nice to have a thread that I can see recommendations for other good movies.

    Oh and 2001: A Space Odyssey is absolutely phenomenal in 1080p HD. It is amazing to watch considering how old the movie is.

    Finally someone mentioned the shawshank redemption. Man that had to be Tim Robbin's best movie he ever did.

    Patton is definately on my list. I plan to on tuesday to post all my pics for the 70's era, only ones I'm skipping is the mad max series and Rocky, and star wars, just because I've seen those so many times.

    it's interesting to note that Germany had a huge cinema boom during the 70's, strangely enough this is after the previous decades French New wave by France. Same with Australia who had a huge boom in the 70's
