Carlito's Way; Al Pacino's delivery of the line "Dave is... a-friend. GAAALE. I owe him. It's... who I am!"
For the latest on the fifth installment in Don Coscarelli's Phantasm saga.

I really enjoy Rounders (1998) especially the performances from Matt Damon and Edward Norton. Unfortunately the usually great John Malkovich puts on a ridiculous OTT russian accent and generally overplays his role. Considering his scenes begin and the end the film it slightly mars my enjoyment but overall I would definitely say it's a very enjoyable movie.

PULP FICTION - all time top 10 fav movie, but the scene with Bruce Willis and his annoying Asian girlfriend in their room goes on waaay too long

I thought she was French?   Anyway, I sort of agree; the Butch storyline was the weakest part of PF (although it does feature The Gimp, so I guess it's gotta stay TeddyR).

A lot of people may disagree but I always thought the "bookend" scenes with the aged Ryan in SAVING PRIVATE RYAN  were really unnecessary.

Eli Roth's "performance" in INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS.  He's almost tolerable until he starts talking, railroads an otherwise perfect movie for me.

To me, those "bookend" scenes in SAVING PRIVATE RYAN were what MADE the movie.  To this day, I can't watch the elderly Ryan turn to his wife and say "Tell me I have been a good man" without just choking up.  It is an incredibly powerful moment.

Roger that one, Indy  Cheers
Spielberg was showing that Private Ryan tried to spend the rest of his life honoring the sacrifice that was made for him.  He was also clashing with a LOT of guilt over the fact that a group of men gave up their own lives for the sole purpose of his salvation from the horrors of war. It was an integral part of the movie as it showed the psychological impact, even decades later.

Anyhow, one of my favorite "bad part" movie moment?

Frankenstein Conquers The World 1965:

When Baragon was wrecking his way thru a farmhouse, there was a TERRIBLE scene with a horse in a corral. That horse was so fake looking it was unreal as it was trying to escape the pen. It ruined an otherwise very surreal scene in what was a cool movie.

Ten Tigers From Kwangtung (1980's)

The Shaw Brothers were corny sometimes, but when one of the main bad guys dies at film's end, you see his head flying off of his body. Nothing new for an uncut Shaw movie.  BUT, when you hear the fake sound accompanying the blow, AND see that the neck is way too long for a human neck,  well let's just say it's beyond hysterical!

I think Eli Roth was casted in Tarantino's 'Basterds' cause Adam Sandler backed out. I recall interviews Tarantino did leading up to it, and he mentioned Sandler being up for it. But by the time shooting came, Sandler was busy with another project and Roth was free.

     Two things from BATMAN BEGINS....
First, I think Bruce would've found another way to clear the mansion rather than shaming his father's name.

Second, "I'm not going to kill you....but I don't have to save you."
That's so NOT Batman.
They turned the character into a thug.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.
