    Yep, those were gooooooood!
    But I still think THE ROCK one was more exciting.



    Love De Niro. Once Upon a Time in America is one of my all time favorite gangster films. Fantastic in The God Father. Sublime in Raging Bull. Hysterical in Midnight Run. But I still hated Goodfellas.
    Midnight Run was great!

    I love Les Miserables the one with liam neeson

    "Around the country, progressive bullies have attacked Christians for daring to put their faith ahead of the pet causes of those who feign compassion while destroying life-giving liberties. What we are seeing is a scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners approach as the wildfire burns across our land. It is not enough that Christians be quiet. Christians must be silenced and punished. Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson
    Proverbs 3:5-8

    Yeah, Bullitt is the best car chase.

    But this is possibly the most memorable movie car chase for me... Here's the sped-up version:

    Blues Brothers car chase


    "It's 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses."

    "Our Lady of Blessed Acceleration, don't fail us now."

    A shame the Nazi "I've always loved you" part isn't audible.

    Grodin at his best and their chemistry was first rate. But you have to watch the blue language version. I normally don't care for that, but it works as a character exposition and it's one of my if not possibly my favorite road trip comedy.

    I still like that Texas Western:

    No Country for Old Men (2007)
    Anton Chigurh: What's the most you ever lost on a coin toss.
    Gas Station Proprietor: Sir?
    Anton Chigurh: The most. You ever lost. On a coin toss.
    Gas Station Proprietor: I don't know. I couldn't say.
    [Chigurh flips a quarter from the change on the counter and covers it with his hand]
    Anton Chigurh: Call it.
    Gas Station Proprietor: Call it?
    Anton Chigurh: Yes.
    Gas Station Proprietor: For what?
    Anton Chigurh: Just call it.
    Gas Station Proprietor: Well, we need to know what we're calling it for here.
    Anton Chigurh: You need to call it. I can't call it for you. It wouldn't be fair.
    Gas Station Proprietor: I didn't put nothin' up.
    Anton Chigurh: Yes, you did. You've been putting it up your whole life you just didn't know it. You know what date is on this coin?
    Gas Station Proprietor: No.
    Anton Chigurh: 1958. It's been traveling twenty-two years to get here. And now it's here. And it's either heads or tails. And you have to say. Call it.
    Gas Station Proprietor: Look, I need to know what I stand to win.
    Anton Chigurh: Everything.
    Gas Station Proprietor: How's that?
    Anton Chigurh: You stand to win everything. Call it.
    Gas Station Proprietor: Alright. Heads then.
    [Chigurh removes his hand, revealing the coin is indeed heads]
    Anton Chigurh: Well done.
    [the gas station proprietor nervously takes the quarter with the small pile of change he's apparently won while Chigurh starts out]
    Anton Chigurh: Don't put it in your pocket, sir. Don't put it in your pocket. It's your lucky quarter.
    Gas Station Proprietor: Where do you want me to put it?
    Anton Chigurh: Anywhere not in your pocket. Where it'll get mixed in with the others and become just a coin........ Which it is.

    Man...I hated that one too.

    I'm more of a The Searchers...or more recently, Open Range sort of western fan.

    I thought No Country had a sorrowful soul. It was like some of the Texas landscape you can ride across on those seemingly endless interstate stretches. Bleak.
