Fargo - I already knew that a TV series based on one of my most and best favorite films of Coen brothers will be delightful but this is masterpiece. I've just watched two episodes of that and I'm saying this. God blessed the intelligence of the American script writers.

5 Reasons the Fargo TV Show Is Just as Good as the Movie
Seven Brides (1954) - Corny and aged somewhat sexist script, but some really wonderful dancing. Please watch it in wide screen or you miss lots of the action.

Argo (2012) Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman Acting under the cover of a Hollywood producer scouting a location for a science fiction film, a CIA agent launches a dangerous operation to rescue six Americans in Tehran during the U.S. hostage crisis in Iran in 1980.
Argo, director Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin, great movie. Even knowing how it ends it keeps you on the edge of your seat. Best Picture Oscar winner for 2012's films. Rated R, not for everyone, strong language and intense scenes. More humor put in than I thought there would be and it's overall an amazingly well done film.
7/10 Ben Affleck directs and stars in this, It is filled with actors such as Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Victor Garber, and Bryan Cranston who each contribute to this incredibly moving film, which is based on a declassified true story.

Super movie poster for the Academy-Award Winning Best Film "Amadeus".. (1984)
For this film adaptation of Peter Shaffer's Broadway hit, director Milos Forman returned to the city of Prague that he'd left behind during the Czech political crises of 1968, bringing along his usual cinematographer and fellow Czech expatriate, Miroslav Ondrícek. Amadeus is an expansion of a Viennese "urban legend" concerning the death of 18th century musical genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. From the vantage point of an insane asylum, aging royal composer Salieri (F. Murray Abraham) recalls the events of three decades earlier, when the young Mozart (Tom Hulce) first gained favor in the court of Austrian emperor Joseph II (Jeffrey Jones). Salieri was incensed that God would bless so vulgar and obnoxious a young snipe as Mozart with divine genius. Why was Salieri -- so disciplined, so devoted to his art, and so willing to toady to his superiors -- not touched by God? Unable to match Mozart's talent, Salieri uses his influence in court to sabotage the young upstart's career. Disguising himself as a mysterious benefactor, Salieri commissions the backbreaking Requiem, which eventually costs Mozart his health, wealth, and life. Among the film's many pearls of dialogue, the best line goes to the emperor, who rejects a Mozart composition on the grounds that it has "too many notes." Amadeus won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Actor for F. Murray Abraham. In 2002, the film received a theatrical re-release as "Amadeus: The Director's Cut," a version that includes 20 minutes of additional footage. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Harvey (1950) Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, "In this world, Elwood, you must be" - she always called me Elwood - "In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant." Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me. -- Jimmy Stewart as Elwood P. Dowd
Harvey -- If you haven't seen it, you should.

North by Northwest - I couldn't get past the "damsel in distress" theme - she's a CIA spy, for crying out loud, she's not a weakling!

Cary, his accent alone is a reason to watch this great Hitchcock classic: North by Northwest. The scene at Mt. Rushmore is also wonderful.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail movie video box art. My favorite movie.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail ~ Classic
Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Seriously funny. " Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of elderberries." " I fart in your general direction." "SHRUBBERY!" " Tis but a flesh wound." All with a British accent:)
Monty Python and the Holy Grail King Arthur and his knights embark on a low-budget search for the Grail, encountering many very silly obstacles. I watch this (well I listen) to this when I paint sometimes. I've seen it so many time I don't even need to look and I know the words almost by heart. Yes, I'm a dork. Love it.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail- Best F-ing Movie Ever in the History of Film!! The Monty Python comedy troupe get Medieval on your ass with a hilarious re-telling of the King Arthur legend. The costuming is (freakishly) accurate and, whenever possible, actual Medieval castles were used during filming. Everything else is just silly rubbish. It's the low-budget absurdity that Python fans expect and love. True fans can quote the whole thing from beginning to end.
