#the movie may get on the list because of the book...I read the book in one night and turned back to page one and started it again....read thru till dawn.
I wonder of Dreamworks (or another of the SiFi-F/Xers)has gotten good enough to do "Stranger in a Strange Land'

And the problem is??

After seeing this movie about 100 times I didn't even notice the profanity. Then I watched it one time with my mother. THEN I recognized just how much profanity is in that flick.

Still love it though. Each scene is a classic unto itself. If I had to pick one, it is the scene where Vince gives ODing Mia a shot of adrenalin. This just barely beats out the scene where Jules and Vince hide their car with the dead body at Jimmy’s and then have to clean it up. Oh, and the scene were Captain Koons explains the meaning of the watch to a young Butch – priceless.


PLUS, it features "Miserlou" by the great DD!!!

Now see, there is another reason that Pulp Fiction was such a good flick - it gave Miserlou to a whole generation who were not around in 1963, or in my case, had musical tastes in 1963 that ran towards 'Mary Had a Little Lamb'.

Writing about PF yesterday got me ready for another go around. Watched from beginning to end tonight (at this point a rarity - I usually just kill time picking up one or two scenes at a time). Still the best . . .

I quite liked this bit of PF

Jules Winnfield: Ezekiel 25:17. 'The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyrannies of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepards the weak through the valley of darkness. For he is truly his brothers' keeper and finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.' Now I've been saying that s*** for years, and if you've ever heard it, it meant your ass. I never gave much thought to what it meant, I just thought it was a cold blooded thing to say to a mother f***er before I popped a cap in his ass. But I saw some s*** this morning that made me think twice. Now I'm thinking it could mean you're the evil man, and I'm the righteous man. And Mr. 9mm here is the shepherd, protecting my righteous ass. Or maybe it means that you're the righteous man, and I'm the shepherd, and it's the world that's evil and selfish. Now I'd like that, but you see that s*** ain't the truth. The truth is, YOU'RE the weak, and I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm trying, Ringo. I'm trying real hard to be the shepherd.

So we watched "Leon" last night.

Jon forgot to mention one small thing- it is very violent!!!! :twisted: :twisted:

I hate violent movies....
One exception is "A Simple Plan"- that just cracked me up.

When my dementia really sets in full time, I will always remember

"Used Cars" with Jack Warden as the Fuchs brothers and Kurt Russell as the used car salesman. Laughed sooo hard I had to watch it again to catch the stuff I missed while in uncontrollable laughter.

"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" Another gut wrenching funny movie.

Lots of other good flicks but extensive senior moments have put them on hold. The joy of dementia is that you get to watch them all over again as a new "First run movie". :lol:

I'm changing my vote. The Movies the Spouse Hates thread reminded me that I screwed up and forgot my third favorite movie. It now goes like this:

Pulp Fiction (easily my favorite movie)
A Hard Day's Night (easily my second favorite movie)
Dirty Harry (easily my third favorite movie, even if I forgot it)
Godfather I & II (others lumped these two together, so I will too)
Patton

I went in already set to make it #2 for the year behind 'Batman Begins' (I am such a super-hero dweeb), but despite some great action scenes, the plot was SO stupid, I only gave it a B+ (first Banderas 'Zorro' was A+!). CZ-J is still SMOKINHOT, and AB is a charming rogue, but the Confederate Army did NOT exist in 1850, and that (and a few other plot abysses) just really bugged me. You'll enjoy it, but not as much as the first one. I see that 'Saw II' beat 'Zorro' at the Box Office last weekend - is America REALLY that blood-thirsty?! You couldn't pay me to see that movie!
