I went back all the way to the 20th page and didn't see anyone who started a thread about movies. If there is one, just let this thread sink away into the abyss of thread history, but if not, this is something we can talk about. We've got one for every sport, music, and TV shows. So I figured might as well.

By the way Al Pacino isn't too shabby of an actor guys. Might want to check out his stuff.

Godfather I/II
Heat
Carlito's Way
Donnie Brasco
Scent of a Woman
Scarface

Surely forgetting one or a few ;)

I only watch The Shawshank Redemption and Forrest Gump. I alternate between the two but never deviate. My daily interactions with other real life humans pretty much just consists of me quoting these movies. Then in December it's okay to watch A Christmas Story.

Add Dog Day Afternoon to the Pacino list. Damn, that's a good movie. Good call on Donnie Brasco, Nomad. That movie is extremely underrated.

I had Dig Day Afternoon and You Don't Know Jack on the list but I liked the others significantly more. It seems Deniro's line of work is far more.extensive than Pacino's.

Taxi Driver
Goodfellas
Casino
Untouchables
Bronx Tale
Heat
Godfathe II
Once Upon a time in America
Raging Bull
The Deer Hunter

Are all movies by Deniro I regard highly.  Oh, I did forget Glengarry Glenn Ross for Pacino's list, was a great movie.

I just watched Glengarry Glenn Ross about 4 or 5 months ago for the first time. It is offensive in so many great ways. Alec Baldwin crushed his one scene. Shelley was my favorite character though, such a believable portrayal of that old school sleazy salesman we've all met at least once. 

Forget it, I know you guys aren't closers because you're just a bunch of losers so I will post the scene for

If you guys like musical movies such as Walk the Line with Joaquin Phoenix or Ray with Jamie.Foxx.I have a few.suggestions for you that are way better than those already good Hollywood flicks.

1. The.Temptations, it's a TV movie but has a higher rating than Walk the Line...it's amazing,.couldn't believe it was  TV movie when I found out. Albeit sinful for me to say this, the movie performances rival if not best the original Temptations work in my opinion and the movie and acting are superb.

2. Once, I'm a big fan of Folk music and the fact that the actors aren't actually actors is baffling as the movie is.done in such a way that you'd think they'd make acting careers out of their performances...amazing musicians, story, acting and rawness....quite the love story.

Easily my favourite horror film would be The Thing (1982), I don't know what it is about non-CGI special effects in horror films, but I absolutely love it!

Did anyone donate to the Blue Mountain State: The Movie kickstarter campaign? I donated $115; pretty good deal too, I get a tee, signed poster, pint, shot glass, doorknob sign, copy of the movie, personal vine and knowing that I contributed to what surely will be a hilarious movie.

I got sad when they remade The Thing. I haven't seen the remake and you're gonna have to Alex Delarge me to a chair to make me watch that thing.

Speaking of which, I need to watch A Clockwork Orange again soon.
