Holy hell, that's actually a good movie!

Okay guys, what's with The Matrix trilogy around here? It's an awesome set of movies if you just want action during some more casual viewing, but not if you want something deeper than that. Its message, which I have learned after watching V For Vendetta, another lovely production (action-wise) courtesy of the Wachowski Bros., is extremely pro-anarchy; in fact, I would go so far as to use the basic plot of V For Vendetta as a metaphor for The Matrix, especially to help explain the concept of the Matrix to the ignorant and/or dim-witted.

...Whoooeeeyyy!!! Anyways, without further ado, here are five assorted movies which I tend to enjoy:

Back to the Future
Zoolander
Big Fish
Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
(has the best battle scenes)
And, to top off the list, Little Miss Sunshine is probably the best new movie I've seen in a long time.

I just saw an Ave Ventura movie. The last time I saw it was in middle school. It still made me laugh this time watching it.

The Austin Powers movies, specifically the first and second, were hilarious. It helps to already have seen the James Bond movies to get the parodies. There's alot of immature humor, but it can be entertaining if you're in the mood for watching it.

A funny movie that I saw yesterday was Mel Gibson's Robin Hood: Men In Tights. It was made in 1993 and turned out to be funnier than I expected.

Oy vey... Mel Gibson...

Mel Brooks did some really good movies: Young Frankenstein, The Producers, Silent Movie, Blazing Saddles, Space Balls, ... I really like his kind of slapstick.

I could not make it past the first 30 mins of the Producers. All the others were great and will stand the test of time.

Hmmm... No comment on most of this... (A lot of good ones, and some I don't know...

I think "C'est arrivé près de chez vous" was called "Man Bites Dog" in the UK and probably in the US...

Here in no particular order are some of my favourites that have had little to no mention so far...

Wings of Desire
Jean de Florette & Manon Des Sources
Citizen Kane
My life as a dog
Cyrano de Bergerac
Roxanne (Steve Martin take on the story of Cyrano De Bergerac)
French Kiss
Nikita
Knight's tale
Much ado about nothing

And I could go on for a lot longer... :-)

As for "Manos: The hands of Fate" I think I may have seen it, but then a friend and I watched a lot of crap movies... "Vampire Knights" wasn't bad... but some of them made no sense whatsoever... and we watched them all the way through.

Default just my current top 5

I am too mercurial with my tastes to have a true top 5...or 10...or 20...

so here is my top 5 based on the movies I have seen lately (not in any particular order):
Spaceballs
Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2
Scent of a Woman
Seven Samurai
Versus
