The stunt man film 'Hooper' just popped in my head and feel I should watch it again.
what i really like on a day like this is to get out the biscuits and tea and watch all my auld favourite films, starting with the three above and then maybe fistful of dollars or barry lyndon
I also recall that Cannonball Run was good but The Gumball Rally less so?
Somewhat spoiled by Harvey Keitel's accent ?
Full Metal Jacket, Apocalypse Now, Breakfast Club, Trainspotting, Robocop, Friday, Blade, that kind of thing usually. Predictable and obvious, I know, but still good.
not for me.
ferris bueller's day off?
i'll see your live and die in la and raise you dirty harry
Full Metal Jacket popped in my head a couple of weeks ago. To be honest I could watch a lot of Kubrick on a loop. Don't watch war films much/often but has been a long while since I have seen it.
It isn't really old, or they aren't but I like to watch the Bourne films again and again.
Plenty of great films mentioned so far, but the ones I'll (almost) always watch if they are on would be:
Full Metal Jacket
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
I'd add to the list:
The Great Escape
The 39 Steps (Hitchcock version)
North By Northwest
His Girl Friday
Shaun Of The Dead
The Man Who Would Be King
Raiders Of The Lost Ark
Then there's films I rewatch probably far more than they really deserve:
Zero Dark Thirty
Black Hawk Down
I've seen some films so many times it's silly.
T2 being top of the list, but also to name a few
LOTR trilogy ( OK not old)
Enemy of the state
That too. Saw it again a couple of weeks ago
My two favourite films
Do you know what it says on Jack Lemmon's gravestone ?
This always cheers me up too...
Ellen Barkin has a tremendous Irish accent in this to be sure to be sure.
Well made films with great music !!
Most of these with the addition of The Blues Brothers and Blade Runner
Utter shite, all mouth and no pants but Luc Besson is always a pleasure
