Favorite movies besides any Star Wars movie — Page 3


Casablanca might very well deserve it’s acclaim. It has incredible performances, an incredible script, great cinematography by Arthur Edeson, and some of the best scenes in all of film. And on Friday, I’ll be seeing it in a real theater.


The Spy Who Loved Me, Last Action Hero, Halloween II ('81), Aliens. I could go on.

I’m not really that much of a movie purist. I really should’ve thought my name out a bit more.


Okay, no particular order but here we go:
Jurassic Park (1993)
2001: A Space Odyssey
Indiana Jones (All four of them)
Galaxy Quest

Of course there are lots of other movies I’ve seen that I thought were absolutely fantastic but not things that I would return to often for casual enjoyment.
Mr. Smith goes to Washington
Twelve Angry Men

Then there are the films that I thought were pretty darn fun and/or entertaining but again, wouldn’t watch as much as those first ones.
Blade I and II
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
John Carpenter’s The Thing
They Live

Move along, move along.


The Back to the Future trilogy. I’d watch those 24/7/365

All his life has he looked away… to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was. Hmm? What he was doing. Hmph!


When i was a kid i very much liked The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. But i haven’t seen them in decades so i don’t know if i would still enjoy them the same.

I also liked Flash Gordon 1980 and the Timothy Dalton James Bond run, along with The Rocketeer.
