Favorite Movies

War Games
Okay, I know it's cheesy and a little out of date. But this was one of my favorite movies from my childhood and continues to appeal to me. I can recite every word. Starring Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy as two teenagers that get wrapped up in a global thermonuclear war computer simulation that could lead to World War 3 for real. The new enhanced DVD version is amazing!

Stripes
Bill Murray kills me. He, along with Harold Ramis and John Candy are just at their best in this movie about an aging adult (Murray) who ropes his best friend (Ramis) into joining the army.


Star Wars
The Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi
The Phantom Menace
I love these movies. Rarely does a sequel to a great movie outshine the original, but Empire is just the best. I think I saw it 14 times when it come out. I own something like 13 or 14 copies of the first trilogy now. The Phantom Menace was great, just bring on more!

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
IMHO, the best Star Trek movie to date. It had everything you could want: special f/x, story, action, drama, and comfortable characters.

Ghostbusters
I've already said it, but Bill Murray kills me. Teaming up again with Ramis and throwing Dan Akroyd into the mix was great. The sequel was typical: disappointing. This is now out on DVD and wow, you have to own it if you like this movie!

Ferris Beuller's Day Off
Ferris Bueller you're my hero! Great movie. 'Nuff said.

Raiders of the Lost Ark
Harrison Ford is great as Indiana Jones. This Lucas/Spielberg collaboration couldn't be better. Incredible story, great f/x, acting. First sequel, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was okay, but a little dark. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was better but didn't top the original.

Back to the Future
Great movie. I love the story idea, implementation and the attention to detail. The Huey Lewis cameo was also good! (I didn't notice it the first 20 times I watched it though!). Sequels were typical: good but not as good as the original.
