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.

If you could only take one of the trilogy, which would it be? I'd take I.

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!
