The hitmans bodyguard. 

Fired up. 

Pitch perfect

 

they make me laugh, and most movies nowadays seem to make me cry, I don't know if it's my age, or tiredness, or stage in life, but I will cry at a fucking dog food commercial. 

 

Not really but close.

A Man of Flowers  (New Zealand Film)

LeMans (needs large screen)

Grand Prix (needs large screen)

Wind (even though it is not that good a film)

"Those fuckers are mean."

One of the best bits in any movie ever - I laughed until I cried.

I still use that line any chance I get.

Das Boot

Star Wars ( I mean the original, 1977 theatrical release, before George Lucas started revising it)

Oh yes.....definitely first 4 and I did enjoy Dr Strangelove....not sure if its a "watch again" one but you're sure right it was a really good movie. The Kill Bills..............meh.

So many I liked but wouldn't watch again...that's a pretty high threshold. I'm gonna add maybe................2001 AND Catch 22...........oh and The Last Detail...........absolutely The Last Detail. " I AM THE MOTHER F*&%ING SHORE PATROL MOTHERF*&^ER!!!!!" Frigging awesome.

And the Great Santini.............for personal reasons..........even though it wasn't all that remarkable a piece of cinema.

There is a very ”Graphic Novel” quality to the Kill Bill movies, from framing the shots, to action sequences and narration.  

I would think most people who enjoyed the Kill Bill movies are also into graphic novels.
