Thread is a bit too broad for my tastes, but I suppose it could be fun.

Some of my favorite films in no particular order:

SE7EN
There Will Be Blood
Punch Drunk Love
Magnolia
The Shawshank Redemption
Goodfellas
The Rules of Attraction
25th Hour
Jarhead
Boogie Nights
Fight Club
Into The Wild
12 Monkeys
A Few Good Men



Shit, I could go on for hours. I love movies.

a) I keep an approximate list of every feature length film I've seen (over 40 minutes as per the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences) and not counting shorts or episodic/mini-series, etc. (If I counted the shorts the list would be up to 2450 probably. Plus I don't see reviewers reviewing shorts.)

b) Discounting burned DVDs and TV series, I have about 370 unique titles.

c) What actor do you have the most DVDs of? (Or BluRay, of course.) For me it's a tie between Bruce Willis and Al Pacino, both at 20.

a) That's a great idea. I certainly could compile a list, it would just take an extreme amount of patience and commitment. Maybe one day.

b) I have 650+ DVDs (this is including television boxsets [1 season = "1" DVD of course]) and just purchased my 100th Blu-ray title last week I never got into burning DVDs.

c) Great question. I'm thinking Brad Pitt though.

Into The Wild was severely snubbed by the Academy. Brilliant film, and superb performances throughout. As for PDL... your results may definitely vary. I adore that film though. There is an incredible amount of tension laced through every minute of it that only PTA could accomplish. It's a strange tale, but I find it very rewarding. Sandler is fantastic in it.

Ooh, I see what you're saying. In that case, I actually do have two titles that are not yet released on DVD, but I didn't burn them myself:

The Wonder Years: the Complete Series and Rad

No matter how many times i watch it, Tom Hanks in Saving Private Ryan is one of my favorite movies of all time.

If I knew the first thing about all that DVD burning and ripping nonsense I would. Got them both off ebay for a pretty reasonable price though.

Just saw Ice Age 3. I did not see Ice Age 2. I did not know what was going on. That said, it was pretty funny.

Just saw Public Enemies. It was pretty disappointing to me. Not bad by any means, but it was wasted potential. I felt it dragged a little bit and felt somewhat just thrown together. Things were not developed w/ characters and stories as well as I had hoped. This was the least interesting role/performance I've seen from Christian Bale and Marion Cotilliard was sort of wasted as well. Depp was good and there were some good things about it, but it could've been much more imo.

This is the second "negative" review I've seen of this. I hope it's at least better than Collateral 'cause I know it can't beat Heat.
