What a consummate bit of acting that was. Right up to the line without crossing over into the realm of farce.

I may have missed it but Tootsie should be on here and
only one mention for Chinatown is not enough, so this makes two.
I will add The Graduate
Adaptation
The Great Dictator
Shop Around the Corner
Bicycle Thieves (Sometimes translated The Bicycle Thief)
Godfather I and Ii
Umbrellas of Cherbourg

Ok, I'll add my current* list (in no particular order)...
  • RED (Retired: Extremely Dangerous) (a little surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet.)
  • The Princess Bride/The Big Lebowski (Most quoted/quotable)
  • All but 4 Coen Bros movies
  • His Girl Friday/You Can't Take It With You/Ball of Fire (and most screwball comedies of the '30s/'40s)
  • The Terminator/The Matrix/Alien franchises
  • Forbidden Planet/The Thing From Another World (1951)
  • Marx Bros./Laurel & Hardy/Harold Lloyd
  • The Maltese Falcon/To Have and Have Not/The Big Sleep
  • Open Range/Wyatt Earp/Tombstone/Silverado
  • Paul
and a lot directed and/or produced by Howard Hawks
*Ask me in 5 minutes and it'll likely change.

Just got back from an afternoon of watching Raiders of the Lost Arc, that was digitally remastered and showing at the IMAX. Kind of cool going to the theatre to watch a movie you saw in the theatre 30 years ago. We all sure get old over time. Harrison Ford looks so young in that movie.
