    Recovering from a procedure, we are ?

    A special place for us.
    Perspiration and chaos and sulfurous air
    Wait for us
    Somewhere."

    Another vote for "My Cousin Vinnie".
    Killer Elite
    The Dead Pool (great spoof of car chase using an RC car as the chase vehicle - hilarious)
    Blue Velvet
    Straw Dogs (Sam Peckinpah was f'ing brutal)
    and yes, I really liked Caddyshack (oh my, that Lacy Underalls!)

    One of the best films featuring animals was "Eight Below", showing survival skills in the Antarctic wilderness. Based on a true story.

    Others:

    Old Yeller (did you cry?)

    Sounder

    Roar (The most dangerous film ever made)

    I finally saw Valkyrie a couple days back. I was impressed by all the German generals. Guys I had never seen, giving the performance of a lifetime in a movie starring Tom Cruise. they all had to be theater actors, to have the experience to pull off a German general in a serious movie, with no prior movie history.

    then I looked them up in IMDB. One of them was Gilderoy Lockhart, so, wait, that's two roles of a lifetime. One of them has 181 credits in IMDB, and I did not remember him from any movie.

    the thing about character actors is, I hear the name a thousand times and can't put a face to it. I see these faces and no idea what the name is. When they die you find out they were in 127 movies and you saw half of them."Oh, him!" I don't want to know anything about them while they are alive. I don't want to think I'm jinxing them.

    I'm surprised there's been no mention of the Pink Panther films.
