The one that was on Batman Forever with Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me? That was the first U2 song I owned. Due to that soundtrack.

"Kiss from a Rose" is a great song, but way too overplayed. I remember putting it on DI1.

"Prayer for the Dying" and "Crazy" are crackin' tracks, too. I can only take his stuff in doses though, it can get a little repetitive.

Oh, honestly, I don't feel I could really tell you. Partly because I essentially haven't watched many movies at all the last couple of years (you lot are starting to make me think of taking a walk down to Video Ezy, though), and partly because I just don't think I know movies well enough to really state a top five that's worth a damn or that I'd stand behind.

But my very favourite movie, not just in this category but full stop, is The Great Escape. Great story, great characters, great acting, and some great action too, like the famous motorbike chase.

The Beatles copied U2, you know. I mean, The Beatles did record with that Chris Thomas guy, right?

I like some of it a lot. Parts of it really suck, though. But I can't complain--it introduced me to U2 and Sunny Day Real Estate.

Temple of Doom is all over the place, but it's good fun. It's got better action set pieces than Raiders, but it's not a great overall movie.

Alien over Aliens, or was that a typo?

Begins is one of my favorite films, but I think the action scenes left something to be desired. Hopefully they're better in The Dark Knight.

That's alright.

I've been meaning to see The Great Escape for quite some time, and glowing opinions from both you and El-Mel is pretty awesome to see.

Have you finished the first half of the list yet?

I've always liked Temple of Doom the best. Ever since I was very small. I just watched all three of them recently and enjoyed it the best again. And yes, Alien over Aliens for me.
