250GB? That's nothing... I've got two of those (plus my 120GB system drive), not to mention 1.5GB DDR RAM... course, I'm a video editor, so I need all that crap.



Anyway... here's a few.

Godfather 1 & 2
Vertigo
Scent of a Woman
The Usual Suspects
Superman 1 & 2
Citizen Kane
LOTR Trilogy
Johnny Carson Collection
Singin' in the Rain
Rear Window
Disney's Beauty and the Beast
Scarface
NFL Films' Superbowl 4

Foreign films...
Samurai 1, 2, & 3
Anything by Akira Kurosawa
Rules of the Game (thanks to Miles)
Cinema Paradiso
The 7th Seal

HUGE Pacino fan... own everything he's ever done... including his 2-minute scene in "Me, Natalie" and... yes... I admit... Gigli.

My best man at my wedding even made reference to my "unhealthy obsession with Al Pacino..." The man craps gold, if you ask me.

In related news, I think I'm going to make my wife go with me to The Tivoli tonight to see "The Merchant of Venice" (which has Pacino as Shylock).

Here's the list I've had luck with... not all of them are "chick flicks" but they qualify, because they're more romantic comedy. Now, my wife is easy... she gets horny when we play Madden together (something about the competition). I'm good at Madden... I didn't use to be.

I will have to heartily disagree with you. Ennio Morricone is good but John William's credentials are a mile long and for a period of about twenty years he consistently kicked ass. Seems lately he's been going downhill a bit, though. I suppose one only has so many compositions in oneself, though.

I will say this much...I'd rather listen to something scored by Howard Shore or David Arnold that anything done by Johnny in the last 10 years.

I haven't downloaded any... I collect the box art as well as the movie. It takes up most of a wall in a room -- although, it's quite neat to look at. You walk into my movie room (which is my edit bay/spare bedroom) and there's all this movie stuff, including autographs from Brando, Jimmy Stewart, Pacino, Connery, and others, movie posters, and a WALL of movies... it's pretty cool for a movie nerd.

Speaking of autographs, for Christmas last year, my wife bought me an 8x10 print of one of The Godfather posters, with the entire cast having signed it -- everybody. There's like 12 sigs on it, from Pacino, Brando, Duvall, Keaton, et al. It's friggin awesome and has a certificate of authenticity from a big autograph house in LA.

It was on a weekend, but I didn't work overnight that weekend -- I was helping out at my full-time job, where this happened. Good memory, just doesn't apply with this instance.

Seeing that you have Red Dragon on your list I'd suggest getting Manhunter,it was actually the first of the series with William Peterson (CSI) as Will Graham,Tom Noonan as The Tooth Fairy and Brian Cox as Hannibal.

It was directed by Michael Mann and although it doesn't follow Harris' novel as close as Red Dragon imo it's still the far better of the two.

Just a couple of highly quotable movies. . .

Oscar - with Sylvester Stallone (he should stay away from comedies)
Nepolean Dynamite - loved this flick

Several other quotable movies on your list, just two that I didn't see on there that came to mind.

I have both on DVD, and while they're both excellent, I like Red Dragon better - if for no other reason than the opening where it shows how Hannibal was captured.

Edward Norton cannot portray the fragile, broken Graham. He is too young and not nearly worn enough. As much as I like Hopkins, his Lector did not make up for Norton’s Graham.

Much preferred “Manhunter” to “Red Dragon.”

I thought they both did fine jobs.

If you like Petersen, you should check out To Live and Die in L.A., another 80's era movie. That's out on DVD now as well.

I want a list of great movies so I can fill my 250 gig external.

So give me movie recommendations now please.

I'd look in to some Kurosawa films if I were you. Seven Samurai, Ikuri, Ran, Yojimbo and Sanjuro, The Hidden Fortress.. etc..

Check him out:
Kurosawa @ IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000041/).

I thought Manhunter was up there with "The Thin Red Line" when it comes to crappy films.

But, I will say right out that "Red Dragon" wasn't nearly as good as it should have been with that cast and that story. Brett Ratner just isn't very good...

“To Live and Die in L.A.” is an underrated film. I saw it because Friedkin was the Director. It fell short of “The French Connection,” but was a good flick.

Noises Off,a most excellent comedy and Nicollette Sheridan's wardrobe....ayi yi yi.

Speaking of John Carpenter I found the original Assault On Precinct 13(1976) in the $5 bargain bin and snatched it up.Watched it again last night,a true cult classic.
