not only the best clint eastwood movie but possibly the best movie period of all time
the quiet man (john wayne color version)
the last samurai (i know tom cruise is a cult leader but the movie was still very good)
the patriot (even though mel gibson may well be the anti semetic anti christ)
There's too many movies I enjoy for different reasons. The even numbered Star Trek films, for example. The Back To The Future series are a fantastic insight into time travel. The Terminator movies, likewise, plus killer robots. One Night At McCools is so ridiculously bad it's good (plus, you know, Liv Tyler as a redhead). Who Framed Roger Rabbit is an example of a good script and groundbreaking special effects, so I enjoy it from a technical point of view as well as an aesthetic one. Plus, you know, Jessica Rabbit. Redhead. Clue is a movie I've seen dozens of times, and I laugh each time - but I'm not always in the mood to laugh. The Childs' Play movies (the first two, at least) work as wonderful thriller/slasher movies. Plus, you know, Chucky. Redhead.
However, my all-time favourite movie, hands down, without doubt, is Dead Man's Curve. Very few people I know have ever heard of it, which is a huge pity. It's funny, it's dark, it's amazingly well written and directed, especially by a first time writer/director (made worse by the fact it was made in 1998, and his second movie is only just in post-production now), and it's the one movie I only ever recommend to people. (I don't do recommendations)
Ditto. If I have time to watch a movie, and do not have a new movie that I want to watch, this is what I watch.
I actually code really well with a movie that I've seen before on -- I learned the dialog from all three Star Wars movies in college having it on in the background while I was working. When I worked from home, I absorbed Lebowski.
Now I work in an office. I have not broached the subject, but I don't think they would let me watch TV.
