I'm a big comedy guy. A couple movies that were way better then expected for me were:
1. Idiocracy - guy wakes up 500 years in future and sees that society has dumbed down so much that he is the smartest person alive.

2. Accepted - kid doesn't get into any colleges, so he starts his own

Ive heard 'Step Brothers' is fantastic, but I'm waiting for it to come to netflix... movie theaters are expensive. As for action, the most recent ones I liked were
1. 21 - 6 MIT students learn to count cards and take Vegas for millions

2. Next - A vegas magician can see into the future, and FBI needs his abilities to stop a nuclear attack.

NEXT was a pleasant surprise for me. I didn't expect much, but really enjoyed the idea behind it and the way they portrayed the possibilities.

@rosborne979,
There are a few movies that if I start watching, I can't stop, even though I have seen them many times. Among them are:
--The Right Stuff
--Around the World in 80 Days (1956 version)
--2001 A Space Odyssey
--The General (Buster Keaton silent)
--The Longest Day
--Lawrence of Arabia
and, oddly
--Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines

Fight Club is by far my favorite movie. Completly changed my outlook on life when I watched it.

Made me understand that a life spent gathering possessions and craving new 'toys' was/is a life wasted. Made me realize that hitting rock bottom doesn't have to be all bad. That I need to let go. That life is short. That sometimes destruction is the best option. That the rest of the world can **** off.

@OmSigDAVID,
I forgot to mention "Zulu" (Michael Caine's first movie). True story about South Africa's Alamo. It's another movie that I can't stop watching once it starts. Great panoramic battle scenes, although hand-to-hand combat is fakey.

@Equus,
We do seem to almost always agree about movies, OSD. I just enjoyed "Zulu" in a new 35mm print on the HD Net Movie channel maybe a month ago -- the color was no longer washed out in a blur. The combat scenes are authentic looking and I always get a rush every time the movie arrives at the "rooftop" scene. It makes a great bookend (double feature) with "The Man Who Would Be King."

@djjd62,
From our private collection, our favorite revenge/avenge film is "Open Range". Hubby, who will seriously watch only a very few movies more than once on purpose, will stop whatever he is doing and sit down and watch that one when it is on.

I don 't recognize that title, but from that genre
Death Wish is pretty good.

I 'll be on the lookout for Open Range. Thank u.
