    Impossible to answer.

    A few favorites though, Rosemary's Baby, original SW trilogy, Blade Runner, Withnail and I, Taxi Driver, Let the right one in, The Terminator, The Hunger, Sweet smell of success, Lawman, The Outlaw Josey Wales.

    There i named like ten off the top of my head. Ask me tomorrow half the list will probably be different. As it should be. Half of these at least i know almost every single quote. Especially Rosemary's baby and the SW films and Blade Runner. Ok and Terminator since it's on cable about every half hour and its hard to spend a week without accidentally coming across a scene of that film (same for Die hard, which i love but come on...does anyone in north america right now feel like they need to watch Die Hard again within the next five years?)

    See that was supposed to be one i name. How could i not. Like i said, any other day. HOW DID YOU FEEL ABOUT CITY OF ANGELS?!?!? Jesus effin wept....

    I just saw Moon yesterday and really liked it. And i don't like either Sam Rockwell or Kevin Spacey, so you know it means something. I wish David Bowie's son would keep on writing his films. He wrote it, that was good. He didnt write but directed Source Code, and that was a retardedly stupid movie.

    And Outland, wow, that's out of left field. Havent seen that in a long time. That's like a High Noon remake....in space.

    ... and my father. We lived in Southern Arizona, and my father was an aspiring actor. He always thought he was right on the edge of making it big. He had one or two lines in Josey Wales (depending on which cut you see) but it never turned into anything more.

    He plays the Union Sergeant who says "let's go" after Josey shoots the three soldiers on the boardwalk... which scene was filmed at Old Tucson.

    Tomorrow will be totally different. Well not totally. A few of these will never leave.
    Top 10 for every decade and every genre may make me feel better. As I didn't even touch animated movies. Yeah, I already want to change the list. Either way that's my answer for that particular moment in time.
