    Tremendous cast, and vastly MORE coherent than I remembered.

    I loved that book and liked the movie but it seemed a bit too frantic maybe at the time.

    Still watch it whenever it's on, which isn't often.

    I think Ferris Bueller has aged extremely well.

    Book turns 50 today, btw. One of my favorite of all time.

    "The Blues Brothers," "Stripes" and "Blazing Saddles." Still hilarious, one and all - and the music in "The Blues Brothers" still kicks ass.

    I hadn't seen Treasure of the Sierra Madre since I was quite young, so it's probably been about 20 years. I watched it last weekend. It's better than I remembered, and I remembered it fondly. Perhaps that's pretty obvious for an Oscar-winning film with Bogey in it. But many times with films from the 1940s I have to filter the movie sympathetically through modern eyes. With 'Treasure' I was engrossed in the storytelling and got lost in it.

    Fast Times at Ridgemont High makes me laugh every time...
  7. The Fourth Protocol with Michael Caine and Pierce Brosnan is both a very under-rated flick and one that still holds up very well.

    Agree. Just love the big concert scene in Blues Brothers.

  11. Second the nomination for Treasure of Sierra Madre and Blazing Saddles.

    IMO, you can include many of the Bogart classics here: Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, Key Largo. Timeless art.

    The Great Race... you can't go wrong with a piefight or a 20-something Natalie Wood
