I was actually thinking about starting a thread about your favorite movie trilogies or franchises, but this seems to fit better anyways.  However, I might cheat a little and put the trilogies together, otherwise my top ten would fill up too quickly :P.

1. Star Wars Original Trilogy (If broken down it would be Empire, Jedi, New Hope)
2. Star Wars Prequel Trilogy (Not a big fan of PM, but really enjoyed AOTC and looking forward to Episode 3 as well)
3. X2: X-Men United (Always a big X-men Fan, like both of these movies a lot)
4. LOTR trilogy (Haven't seen the third one obviously, but if its anything like the first two at all, it ranks up here if not higher)
5. Indiana Jones trilogy (one more to come, but all three are great.  Last Crusade might be my favorite of the three)
6. Christmas Vacation (My wife and I watch this every year, never gets old either)
7. Mallrats (this has always been a favorite of ours as well)
8. Tommy Boy (having it on TV so much has kept my from watching it as often, but one of the all time classics at our house)
9. Dumb and Dumber (another comedy classic)
10. Life as a House (and its not because of the "anakin connection", it is just a movie that my wife and I really enjoy)

There are several other movies that are great, and my top ten probably changes a lot...I'm sure I'm forgetting several.  My wife and I really enjoy movies, so its tough to narrow it down.  Others I can think of off hand are Ferris Bueller, A Time to Kill, Drowning Mona, Shrek, E.T., Goonies, etc.)  Nice topic, by the way :).

cory----once were warriors is awwwwwwwesome--great call. have you seen broken english as well? it's about a croatian family in aukland and the cultural clash when the croatian and maori fall in love, etc. your man temuera is in it also.  I don't like it as much as once were wariors but it's pretty good.

I watched OWW today. I got the DVD a few months back, and love it. I haven't seen Broken English yet, though. I've seen all the other "American" flicks which he was in, i.e. Barb Wire, Six Days/Seven Nights, Dr. Moreau, etc.

Theres a new one that may see limited released called "Beautiful Country" which he's in.

I've always recommended OWW to my friends, because it's an extremely moving movie, and really shows Tem's range, even if it is almost 10 years old now.  :o

yah, I agree. I think temuera morrison is a very underestimated actor.  if I were a director, I think he'd be in every movie I made in some role or other. he scared the crap out of me in once were warriors. just an amazing role and performance.  I'll have to keep a look out for beautiful country if it pops up here.
