    Blue Velvet... :D ...filmed right here in ol' Wilmington NC. B)

    Pretty low key high tension movie. ;)

    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    The end of Seven where he asks what’s in the box.

    Almost any 5 mins. from Pulp Fiction.

    The diner scene from Reservoir Dogs. Brilliant writing.

    This is definitely not the best, but still one of my favorites. (Incredibles 2)

    I couldn't find one that didn't have a bunch of watermarks.

    One of the funniest scenes in all of cinema. How Spade got through this straight faced is beyond me

    I refuse to argue with idiots, because people can't tell the DIFFERENCE!
  • +1 for the Robert Shaw scene from Jaws and John Adams scene. John Adams is a great mini-series and highly recommended.

    One of my favorites.....

    Quentin Tarantino wrote it. If you like him, you'll love it.

    It was kinda weird because the title made it sound like it was a chick flick but it was the furthest thing from a chick flick with an all star cast.

    A few of my favorites:

    The Watch scene from PF:


    Caddy shack - the only time Bill Murray and Chevy Chase were in the same scene...:


    The dinner scene from Goodfellas:

    What's even more cool is that scene from Goodfellas was largely unscripted. When Joe Pesci goes on his rant, none of it was scripted, catching Ray Liotta flat-footed for his own dialog. The look of confusion and shock on his face was both genuine and perfect for the scene.

    Yes, I was aware the moonwalk is a video and not a Hollywood movie.

    Just thought it was significant, (a slight derail).

    The Abraham Zapruder film is another example of filmed history. What was hidden behind that road sign? We'll probably never know.

    Because its judgement that defeats us.

    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; LAT International speaker cables, ZU Mission IC's and power cables all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    Other; M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All vintage Polk have had crossover rebuilds and tweeter upgrades.

    There are three things that give a man a false sense of courage, a keyboard, alcohol and a firearm.
