Last time I listed my ten favorite movies, but I felt that I could not fit all of my favorite movies in just ten movies. So here is some more of my favorite movies in no particular order.
Better Off Dead – This movie from the 80’s has way too many one liners to list here as the movie is that damn good. The funniest of which is probably, “Gee Ricky I am sorry your mom blew up.” If you have not seen this movie before, you should check it out. It is HILARIOUS.
Moving Violations – This is another movie from the 80’s which is funny. The best line in the whole movie was the little old lady sitting in the men’s room on a urinal and saying, “Why is my back all wet?” Another classic movie which you should see.
The Empire Strikes Back – This was the first movie I ever saw on opening day and I was like maybe 6 or 7. I walked out of the theater and was stunned for weeks as it was revealed that Darth Vader was Luke’s dad. How could the evil bastard be the hero’s dad?
The Usual Suspects – This is a great suspenseful crime movie. The whole movie you are trying to figure out who the hell Keyser Sozie is and at the end you feel dumb when you figure it out.
The Princess Bride – Oh my I love this movie. So many good scenes in this one to write about, but I would say the scene with the hero and the fool exchanging the poisonous drink is my favorite. This is a great movie to see with kids.
Old School – Another great classic movie, although the second half of the movie is not as good as the first half, but it is still worthy of mentioning here. The best scene is the cussing in front of the kid scene in the kitchen.
Back To School – This was Rodney Dangerfield’s best movie he was ever in. The jokes in this movie are some of the best I have seen in movies. The scene with Sam Kinison is the best ever. SAY IT, SAY IT.
Alive – A true story of plane crash survivors in the Andes Mountains. I wrote a whole blog about this movie, if you have not seen it I highly suggest the movie as it will change your outlook on life.
The Trailer Park Boys – This movie is based upon the popular tv show from Canada by the same name. If you ever feel down and out about where you are in life, watch this movie and you will suddenly feel better about anything wrong with your life. Although I have to admit after seeing it I want to drink a mixed drink out of the bottom of a 2-liter bottle.
Groundhog Day - This movie is the best movie that Bill Murray has ever done. It is not only a comedy but has a deeper "be a better person" meaning behind it. This is one of the movies that I like to watch over and over with my kids. And my kids love the movie as well and can randomly quote lines from it.
Well I hope you enjoyed this little list, now go and get these movies from the Redbox or Netflix and watch them. Let me know how you liked them.
