It's been forever since I've seen Excalibur. I remember wishing it had been better. I like the King Arthur story, so I sort of viewed that as a missed opportunity. Maybe my perception of it would be different now. But yeah, I wonder if Bryan Singer is still thinking about doing a remake.

I would say CatBrat broke the 5 barrier since he went plural on Harry Potter and Star Wars.

I’m puzzled by why I like Excalibur so much. Might have been the altered state I was in the first time I saw it but for some reason the movie just works for me.

I have quite a lot of favorite movies. It's hard to get down to just a few. I'll just mention five that I like a lot and try not to think too much about it, since I could easily keep shuffling other selections in and out of this list.

Sense and Sensibility
Bottle Rocket
Kill Bill: Volume 2
Happy Gilmore
Shaolin Soccer

I only have two that stand out, just because of re-watchability factor.

Gladiator
Top Gun

Second teir could go on forever, but I'll pick the top four.

Tombstone
Scarface
300
Schindler's List

And of course, comedies like Happy Gilmore, Wedding Crashers, Austin Powers etc are great for brainless rainy afternoons.

::Doug Mackenzie:: My brain hurts, this is too hard ::/Doug Mackenzie::

The Princess Bride, just to much quotable content from this one.

As a Bill Murray fan I love Stripes and Caddy Shack

Star Wars, captured my imiagination as an 11 yr old.

LOTR, captured my imagination as an adult

Almost to a man, we chose as if the first 60 years of cinema never happened and like the term "foreign film" were an oxymoron. Ah, Potemkin, we are American!

just don't appreciate the bad acting from the first 60 years and the 'lost in translation' of foreign films.
