    A really good one that got by a lot of people was O Brother Where Art Thou? It's the Odyssey adapted to the depression-era South. Great writing.

    Has anyone watched Swordfish. I can't get any consistent word on it yet.

    Yorick - nice bones!!
    That IS a Palm III form-factor in my pocket, AND I'm happy to see you.

    • A Bronx Tale
    • Charade (and all other Audrey Hepburn movies)

    • The Fugitive

    A "favorite" to me is one that I can watch over and over and not be totally bored. There are a lot more, but I fear that if I listed more than what I already did, someone would reach through my PC and choke me to death. And how positive of a thread would it be then?

    2001 A Space Odyssey

    Isn't that enough? It's hard to believe that Kubrick did "Eyes Wide Shut" but without a doubt - 2001 was his best work, IMHO.
