Local Hero

The Princess Bride

Woody Allen’s Manhattan

The Sting

Hallelujah Trail

Dead Man (with Johnny Depp, before he became a gay pirate)

And of course Die Hard 1-3 Big Smile

Local Hero and Manhattan are two of my favorites, too. A couple of others: The Dish, and Le Mans.

The Dish is great too! And Steve McQueen rocks. My favorites are Bullitt and The Thomas Crown Affair.

“This is a hybrid. This is a cross, ah, of Bluegrass, Kentucky Bluegrass, Featherbed Bent, and Northern California Sensemilia. The amazing stuff about this is, that you can play 36 holes on it in the afternoon, take it home and just get stoned to the bejeezus belt that night on this stuff.”

Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (1958) Had such a thing for the leading lady, Allison Hayes.
The Amazing Colossal Man (1957) and sequel, War of the Colossal Beast (1958)
The Thing (1951)
Earth Vs. The Flying Saucers (1956)
The Mummy’s Hand, Curse, Ghost (1944)
THEM (1954)
IT- The Terror From Beyond Space (1958)

That’s really fantastic Glenn. You must have been as happy as I was being able to eventually get them all on DVD. I think they were all some of the best movies ever made. As entertaining now as when I first saw them as a kid.

The ones I don't have such as The Attack Of the 50 foot Woman and The Amazing Colossal Man, I'm downloading right now. I haven't seen those in ages.

Ever see Caltiki, The Immortal Monster (1959)?  It's kind of like The Blob, but instead of consuming the whole body, it leaves the skeleton behind. It scared the crap out of me when I was a kid. lol!

 

Edit: Just added The Attack Of the 50 foot Woman and The Amazing Colossal Man to my iTunes movie collection. Tonight I watch them Smile

These movies are all awesome, but I’m saddened at the lack of martial arts flicks in here.
In no particular order:
Enter the Dragon, Drunken Master, Ip Man, Hero, Fists of Fury, House of Flying Daggers, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

TODO List:

Acquire more parts.

Devise cheap way to make TIRs.

Rub some bacon on it.

Finish something that I

I always loved the part in the 50 foot woman when you see the giant grab the sheriff’s car and toss it.

Somehow I’ve never heard of Caltiki. I’m watching it on YouTube right now and I’ll let you know what I think. Thanks.

I loved Cheech and Chong a lot more when I used to smoke pot. They were funny as hell. Dave's not here!! 

Green Mile was an amazing movie. I have that on DVD

Yeah, I hear ya.
I was going to list some movies from the Shaw Bros. I like, as well as a couple of ninja movies.
But I thought that not many member’s out there heard of them. Anyway, here’s some.

The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin, Heroes Of The East, The 5 Venoms, Challenge Of The Masters, Invincible Shaolin,
The Boxer From Shantung, Crippled Avengers, The 5 Shaolin Masters, Shinobi, Ninja In The Dragon’s Den.

When I was a kid, I spent many a weekend riding my bike down to Chinatown watching these.
They don’t make um like this anymore, although I absolutely loved Ip Man 1 thru 3
Did you know that Donnie Yen has agreed to make another Ip Man ?
The story is supposed to focus more on his elder years when he’s training Bruce Lee.

This is one of my favorite movie scenes, especially the part after 1:40. No wonder Gleason was called “The Great One.”
