  1. BTTF is my vote for best movie. Goonies by far my favorite.
  2. Music is what really does it for me during a dramatic scene that gets the eyes leaking. Stupid youtube took it down, but one of the most powerful scenes I've seen in a long time was in Lady In The Water. Giamatti has a short monologue, apologizing to his dead wife and children for not being there for them, while James Newton Howard's "The Healing" is playing in the background. That **** makes me snotty-nose cry every time. Giamatti is one of the best character actors of this generation, along with DD-L and PS-H, rip. Also, there's a scene in This is England where a young boy is being brainwashed by an English Skinhead (Stephen Graham), and this "beautifully sad" music (Fuori Dal Mondo by Ludovico Einaudi) plays as we watch a young innocent boy learn to hate. Instantly dusty in the room. Clint Mansell's The Fountain soundtrack is amazing, the whole damn thing. And then there's the The Tree of Life, one of the most misunderstood films of the 20th century. With original tracks by Alexandre Desplat and John Tavener, The Tree of Life is basically a two hour music video about the beauty of life and love. Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain are just there to sprinkle in monologues. The powerful music in this film, along with Malick capturing the innocence of children and simplicity of nature, made me cry several times when I first saw it.
  3. Outside of sad ending dramas, the action movie that moved me most was The Last of the Mohicans. The final scene tugs on the heartstrings pretty good. You go through a whole range of emotions. And during the entire scene, one of the most iconic and emotional soundtracks ever is blaring in the background. Hard brass chords, heavy strings, and battle drums. War music. I've seen the final scene of LotM probably 100 times (literally), and I still get goosebumps and occasionally tear up. They just don't make movies like this anymore. If I had a nickel for every time I stood in the mirror, trying to impersonate Magua in this gif. I had a hammer in one hand, steak knife, blade down, in the other. Even though he ends up catching that work, the way Magua sways back and forth as he draws his knife with that "I will eat the hearts of your children" look on his face is so badass!!!.
  4. Look at that sweaty man-back glisten....
  5. "Watch your head!!!"
  6. Top Gun 2 is gonna crash and burn, just like Goose. Too soon?
  7. Any answer other than Terminator is wrong.
  8. Preach, brother. I had the exact same experience leaving the theater after Dark Knight as well. It's the reason we go to the movies. The magic.
  9. Dead Man Walking was the first movie that ever made me cry. Sarandon and Penn were magical on screen together, the best film of both of their careers. That final scene, man. Powerful stuff. Jesus. The Boy In The Striped Pajamas was tough on the feelbox as well. Far as animated (well, clay animation), if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend Mary & Max. Amazing movie and very emotional. Toni Collette and Phillip Seymour Hoffman. If there were a "top 25 movies since 2000 that many people haven't heard of," Mary and Max is top 5.
  10. Nice, didn't read far enough into the article to see he had a criminal history. Barry Brownell-Conway, aka BBC, who is doing 50 years, will take care of that d-bag.
  11. I just can't understand why somebody would do that to another human being. What a POS. I doubt he does any jail time, but I hope he gets jumped in his neighborhood and stomped out.
  12. A sensitive (beige) man needs a tiny, soft, sensitive (beige) pup that understands him. Maybe I should've named him Drake.
  13. Yeah. He's half Shih Tzu/half Maltese. Total chick magnet. And we've definitely gotta roll a fatty sometime. How far are you from KC? Thinking about meeting my dad out there for that game.
  14. He doesn't normally do good with things on his face, either. Trust me, wife has tried to put the poor lad into all kinds of little costumes. He hates it. If you dress him in anything, he'll just sit there and shiver LOL. But yeah, he's pretty much the cutest dog west of the Mississippi. At 11 pounds, people think he's a puppy. He just turned 6 last week LOL
  15. Gizmo loves looking out the window while on car rides, but the air bothers his eyes. Wife got 'em some fighter pilot goggles. So now we've got this
