50 of My Favorite Films to Watch...15-11

     Here is round 8 of my favorite films list.

#15   Star Trek: First Contact

"Assimilate this!"

Of the STNG movies, this is the by far the best.

#14   Better Off Dead

"Two brothers... One speaks no English, the other learned English from watching "The Wide World of Sports." So you tell me... Which is better, speaking no English at all, or speaking Howard Cosell?"

Classic 80s comedy.  Need I say more?

#13   The Princess Bride

"And YOU: friendless, brainless, helpless, hopeless! Do you want me to send you back to where you were? Unemployed, in Greenland?"

This movie along with #35 are the ones that everyone needs to watch.

#12   A Few Good Men

"Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to."

Even though I own the movie, this is one of those that I have to watch when it is on TV.

#11   Terminator 2: Judgment Day

"The more contact I have with humans, the more I learn."

Great movie theme.  Great movie.  A must see.

Finally.  We are coming up on my top 10 favorite movies to watch.
