Just remember what ol' Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big old storm right in the eye and says, "Give me your best shot. I can take it."

You can post your Top 50 if you want like elevation2u did, but only the first 25 will be counted

Here it is folks. At least as definitive as I'm going to make it within the next couple weeks. The first 9 are pretty much set in stone aside from the occassional small shifts in possitioning. The rest of the list was much much more difficult to order. It will probably change a little bit by tomorrow even. But it's good enough for now.

1. The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly
2. Terminator 2: Judgment Day
3. Pulp Fiction
4. The Shawshank Redemption
5. American Beauty
6. Blade Runner
7. Lawrence of Arabia
8. The Big Labowski
9. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
10. Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
11. 2001: A Space Odyssey
12. Aliens
13. Jaws
14. Once Upon A Time In America
15. V For Vendetta
16. Lost in Translation
17. Spiderman 2
18. The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
19. Casino
20. Fargo
21. Young Frankenstein
22. Little Miss Sunshine
23. Reservoir Dogs
24. Once Upon A Time in the West
25. Grindhouse

Nice list Beav. Curious to see The Two Towers so high though, without either of the other film anywhere on the list.

I used to like ROTK more, but there's something clautrophobic about the two towers I really like. I think ROTK is actually too big. It'd probably be # 30 or so. Fellowship kinda bores me.

That one just barely didn't make my list.

My friend was ready to kill me when we watched the "Jehova! Jehova!" scene, because I kept rewinding it. That might be one of the all-time funniest scenes

Wes would be proud.

Is a Criterion Collection DVD of the Tenenbaums for 20 bucks worth it? I'm not too sold on getting movies over 15 bucks, but I could've gotten:

The Royal Tenenbaums (Criterion)
Rushmore
and another one for about 35 bucks.

Well, the Criterion Tenenbaums is the only one that exists, to my knowledge. Thus, it's completely worth it.

If you can find the Criterion of Rushmore, I'd highly recommend picking it up in lieu of the bare bones version also offered.

And I do realize I'm a Wes Anderson fanboy. At least I make no qualms about it.

I'm a Wes fanboy, too, don't get me wrong.

As awesome as the The Criterion Rushmore sounds, it looks way too expensive for one movie though.

On half.com I can get:

Tenenbaums (Criterion)
Rushmore (Barebones )
Aliens (2 Disc Version)

for 27 bucks, not a bad deal, but not a great one either.
