    So many great "old" films"

    Taxi Driver
    Scarface
    The Godfather
    Deer Hunter
    Apocalypse Now
    Full Metal Jacket
    Videodrome (not everyone's taste but I think it's great!)
    Zulu (watch that in BluRay and you'd think it was made last week, awesome conversion)
    The Last Detail (classic early Nicholson, brilliant film)

    ive only seen the 1st 2 transformers films the 1st one was ok at best best part about the 2nd one is they destroy an astra (a car i lothe) other than that it was utter pap (Im sorry optimus prime wouldnt coldly kill someone who couldnt fight back its just wrong). Special effects when used for plot i have no problem with but do not a movie make)

    back on topic

    back to the future
    enjoyed watching brewsters millions
    star wars
    the italian job
    who framed roger rabbit (still manages to have better interaction between live and animated than modern stuff in a lot of cases)

    Seen Laurel and Hardy on the list but not the wonderful Marx brothers films - day at the races and night at the opera which are fall of the chair funny. Also some of the Abbott and Costello movies, saw one on TV recently and haven't laughed so much, in fact laughed till I cried, was so funny
