Shawshank Redemption was on and I had to watch it. Which is odd cause I have it on dvd as well. One of those movies that I'll watch every year or so.

Watched Fire With Fire and Man on a Ledge.
Both good action flicks, with Man on a Ledge offering a few laughs along with the action and more feel-good at the end. Fire With Fire is more drama, and I actually cringed at one point.

Jack Reacher - I have no desire to see it. If anyone has read the books by Lee Child, you know there is no way Tom Cruise could ever be Jack Reacher!

You folks sure have me reminiscing !
Watched another oldie the other night for about the 4th time, and it got me to thinking about which movies made the biggest impressions on me as being well acted, a pleasure to watch, and are truly etched in my mind:
My #1 all time favorite has got to be....
- A Few Good Men -
- with the best 'classic' lines, imo, near the tail end -
Cruise to Nicholson:
"I'm not your son - I'm a lawyer and an officer in the United States Navy - and you're under arrest, you son of a bitch!"
Some of the other oldies which made a strong impression on me as being really good movies, all of which I've watched at least twice:
- The Dirty Dozen
- The Silence of the Lambs
- The Magnificent Seven
- The Sting
- In the Heat of the Night
- First Blood
- The Thomas Crown Affair
- As good as it Gets
- Love Story
Ah, I could go on & on - hopefully others will care to chime in.

Holy smokes just spent like the last 30 minutes with a lump in my throat. "Hachi - A Dogs Tale".
Very nice (and based on a true) story but have a box kleenex handy...
