So many choices, though I watched Heat (DeNiro/Pacino, not Bullock/McCarthy) and think it could be.

Princess Bride. Thread over.

You took the words right out of my mouth! The film is a classiic.

#2 – Shawshank Redemption. Salvation lies within.

Inconceivable!

Oh give me a break. You keep saying that word, but I don’t think it means what you think it means, I must say.

BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES. The perfect movie with the perfect cast.

Oh give me a break. Is that movie not the best? Because it has sadness and mirth, don’t you know. Stars were stars back then, and films were movies.

Can’t think of how that movie could’ve been better cast. Even the minor roles with Hoagy Carmichael, and Steve Cochran were brilliantly chosen, and Harold Russell was really unforgettable. Frederick March was the perfect family patriarch, though in all honesty I would’ve given James Stewart the Oscar that year for IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE, not because he was better than March, but only because he was the glue that held the entire film together, while BYOOL was a brilliant team effort.

Was Robert Deniro the most over rated actor ever? With Scorcese holding his hand, and walking through a picture he’s brilliant. Without Scorcese, it’s “classics” like RONIN, and WAG THE DOG,

Oh give me a break. As if the original 1967 production of “Bedazzled,” helmed by the legendary Mr. Stanley Donen with stellar performances by Peter Cook and “others,” to quote the mobile version of IMDB, has any real competition for this honor. Who doesn’t love a good Faustian retelling, I must say, especially one with pop idols, Raquel Welch, and gratuitous references to Julie Andrews?

I actually like the remake of Bedazzled with Hurley and Fraser. It’s stupid and cheesy, but I like cheese.

Chinatown. Not just the apotheosis of the film noir genre–it was the most elegantly crafted screenplay ever.

Not sure if it’s the best, but…. I’ve watched Goodfellas 20 times and could probably do another 20.   Ditto with Shawshank Redemption.

EASY RIDER and THE GRADUATE used to be my 2 favorites, but GOODFELLA’S (Light years better than THE GODFATHER) and BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES get the nod now.

Joe Versus the Volcano is a fantastic film as well. Definitely a top five candidate!

Possibly my all-time favorite movie line: “My father says that almost the whole world is asleep. Everybody you know. Everybody you see. Everybody you talk to. He says that only a few people are awake and they live in a state of constant total amazement.”

I am awake and she’s right.
