Butter Flavoring On That?

A friend and I were having a quick chat on gmail last week about movies. Movies that we love. Movies that we quote. Movies that we never really tire of seeing but that we don’t watch with much frequency anymore.

It got me thinking. It’s time for a marathon movie day. An all day affair of movies, food, drink, naps and more movies.

Of course such a day must involve the holy trinity of movie-going treats: Sno-Caps, Goobers and Raisinets, as well as some of the newer kids on the block: Hot Tamales and Red Vines.

So, I need your help. We’ve got to make a list. I’ll start:
  • The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across The 8th Dimension
  • The Princess Bride
  • The Big Lebowski
  • Kingpin
  • Fletch! (but not Fletch! Lives)

Chime in, dear readers. We may even put you on the invite list.

I'd like to add the first two thirds of "Life Of Brian" and "Tron".

Treasure Island as well.

Thanks for the suggestions so far.

Looks like we'll need to do this over a few days...

Here are my picks:
-Goodfellas (awesome)

-Fallen (creepy but interesting)

-Napoleon Dynamite (Hilarious! talk about a flashback)

-The Italian Job (Just plain fun)

-30 Days of Night (Horror at its best)

-and of course the classics -- Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, 48 Hours, and The Fugitive.

Hope this helps!

Two underrated classics:

Shakes the Clown
Cabin Boy

Dave - Shakes The Clown would be awesome. Great suggestion.

Vanessa - Thanks for commenting. Excellent additions.

So who's bringing the milk duds?
