Based on the greatest book of all time.

Some say it has changed their life.

It takes place on a planet named Arakis...

also known as Dune.


Not sure about THE best book...but certainly ONE OF the best books of all time.

But you better not be talking about the David Lynch version. That was crap compared to the book.

If you're talking about the more recent miniseries, then I might be slightly more inclined to agree.

My pick for movie you should see: Tequila Sunrise.

I'm suprised no one has brought these up yet:

Sin City
Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail (some don't get british humor, it's alright)
13th Warrior- Great movie that works on legends and reallity
Highlander (the original)
Seven (what a movie to screw with your mind)
Support your closest military member, they work hard for peanuts, and your gratitude has more of an impact than you think.

dude that is like the most emotionally draining movie of all time


dude.......... /embarresed - i cried at the end :(


When I finished watching that my only thought was "god I want my day back."

Let's see hmmm

Princess Bride
Secondhand Lions
Groundhog Day
Spanglish
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Star Wars IV: A New Hope (the NON-edited version)
The Matrix (as someone else said only the first one need apply)
The Fifth Element (12 monkeys made me too sad at the end for it to go on my list)

The Dark Knight

I'm sure I've left out a lot of the movies that should be on my list but I can't think of any more right now. Also I like a lot of other movies but it really has to be more than just good (well good in my opinion =P) to get on my must see list.

I was only refering to Aliens, not Alien or Alien 3 or any of the other garbage afterwards.

I also like Ladyhawke.

I will assume that you mean "with RiffTrax" because I have no idea how you could sit through that movie without it.

Sorry man, that movie was just so good, and I was really skimming through some of the traffic... guess I missed it when you said it. :(

This,
Going thru five pages of comments, and no PALADIN brings this up earlier?



What is your favorite colour?

Since we're all playing a game so heavily spun off of J. R. R. Tolkien's creations, I'm going to throw the Lord of the Rings trilogy in here. I'm surprised at how many people tell me they haven't watched even 1 of the films.
