All Quiet on the Western Front (1930) - This film still moves me and to this day sends a powerful message on the idiocy of war.

Eight Men Out (1988) - I don't know why, but I love this flick about the Black Sox Scandal of 1919.

John Cusack is brilliant as Buck Weaver and should have received an Oscar nomination for his role.

Dirty Harry (1971) - Face it, you're not a red blooded male if you haven't dreamed of being Clint Eastwood and telling the bad guy "Do you feel lucky, punk?" "Well, do you?"

Funny, no one has picked "The Song Remains the Same"

Pray tell, does this mean our boys can't act? <_<

What a great movie - All Quiet on the Western Front - too bad Hollywood doesn't make these types of movies. :thanku:
