I wore out the Men in Black VHS tape. Yeah, tape. I'm not sure if video discs were even out then. CD's were, but not sure of DVD. MiB 2 sucked and 3 was great. Not really a movie person, but there were a few TV Series' that I liked.

I think The Sopranos was my favorite. Blacklist is good and NCIS is on the top of the list. NCIS LA isn't all that great. The characters don't flow with each other.

Apocalypse Now

oops--- did I leave out Casablanca? (I plan to cast Nora in the remake...Lora's cat is booked up...)

Yes, 'Das Boot' was great. It was a career boost for many German actors and the big break for some of them.

    U-boat life was certainly dangerous and miserable. This movie was seriously powerful, perfectly done, and quite historically accurate.

    When Germans make a great movie, they kick serious ass--two of my top five list movies are German, and one of them is considered the "big daddy" of science fiction.

    If you have not seen "The Lives of Others," regardless of your national location, I suggest you do so if you want to understand why some American and German citizens are now so deathly paranoid about surveillance.

    Hell, maybe I should have put THX1138 on my list. Luca's best movie. Originally billed as science-fiction, it's now pretty much how my government will be operating by 2016...
