    I'm in my late 30's and consider myself a movie buff. I like movies of any genera.
    Wolf of Walstreet was ok. The scene where they take the old ludes and they kick in later when he's in the Lambo,
    then later the cops show up at his house and he doesn't remember getting it home was classic!

    Off the top of my head some of my favorites are:
    Forrest Gump
    Man on Fire
    Jaws
    Crash
    Shawshank Redemption
    O Brother Where Art Thou
    Me, Myself, and Irene!
    Anything Clint Eastwood
    Grumpy Old Men
    300
    Lawless
    Blood Diamond
    Smokey and the Bandit (the original)

    Yes I have, or had as I was around when the first one came out. Charles Bronson wasn't it? Seemed like a different movie, isn't that where one of the leads gets blown up in the car at the end?
    I like the acotrs in the newer one, the family tie thing, etc. And, I liked then getting fired up to go out and boost cars by listening to
    that ZZTop song! There were both good movies though.

    I can't watch any movie with Nicholas Cage in it except Raising Arizona.

    Cage has done some bombs but Raising Arizona is one of my favorites.

    just watched Saving Mr. Banks - wow what a surprisingly great movie! That's usually not my genre at all - another movie that was like for me was the The King's Speech, people kept talking about it being good and the subject matter sounded boring but such a great movie.

    Oh well, just thought I'd share - another wild and crazy night for me lol

    I liked Kings Speech very much. Been on the fence about Mr.Banks so I guess I will give it a go.

    H.B. Halicki is the director, writer, main character, and stunt driver.

    I'll give you that the acting is better in the remake.
