"Nuff said."

There is just something about Danny Ocean and his gang being in Vegas that makes it soooo good.



#39     The Patriot

"God save King George!"

I saw this in the theater the summer it came out in 2000.  Listening to John Williams' score from the movie can really get the patriotic blood in me flowing.



#38     Batman

"This town needs an enema!"

This is my favorite of the Batman movies.  There is just something about it.  Wanna know what the fellas at the Grizzly Bear Egg Cafe have to say about it?  Listen here.



#37     Star Trek

"Green-blooded hobgoblin..."

 I was not sure of what to expect.  My Trekkie friend Ian had his doubts too, but it was really good.  Abrams did a terrific job and the cast was well-selected.  I am looking forward to the sequel.



#36     The Fugitive

"If they can dye the river green today, why can't they dye it blue the other 364 days of the year"

 I. love. Chicago.  Every time I see this movie, it always makes me want to go to Chicago.  When I finally got to go in the summer of 2005, the Chicago Hilton was one of the first places I wanted to see.



Stay tuned for the next installment of my favorite films to watch...35-31.
