    I love the True Romance scene...he had balls of steel prior to his death. I also enjoy the fact that Tarantino didn`t jack up that scene with his own horrible acting

    ^^Titanic? Really? I don`t think so. Anyway, nice list. I agree with all of them. The bit about American Beauty made me sad, though. I really like that movie.

    Those weren`t that good. I can think of 5 much better off the top of my head: Spock, Wrath of Khan; Col. Nicolsen, Bridge over the River Kwai; Antoninus, Spartacus; Annakin Skywalker, Return of the Jedi; Mr. Orange, Resivoir Dogs "I`m dratin DYin here"

    Yeah, I just saw the words "Shawshank Redemption" and the tear ducts kicked in... I didn`t dare watch the video. I`d be bawling by the end of it.

    I really liked American Beauty. And I agree, the Titanic would have been a good one. It made me cry. Haha.

    True Romance: Dennis Hopper Teaches Genealogy;

    Totally efed up, racist POV... none the less, a brilliant acting performance. We`ll probably never, ever see a popular Hollywood movie scene like this again in todays molly codling, politically correct world.

    Seven/American Beauty & ESPECIALLY Blade Runner: Three of the greatest movies ever made. If only they still made movies as deep as those.

    "Unfortunately, American Beauty has not aged well; it currently shares a place on the DVD shelf with other forgotten Best Picture winners like The English Patient and Crash."

    You cant compare American Beauty with those two;
    American Beauty was a master piece... The English Patient And Crash (2004) were absolute, melodramatic, Hollywood assembly line, manufactured pieces of crap.

    Just my two cents...

    Well, one of my faves is Boromirs final speech to Aragorn. It`s short and sweet. Makes me cry everytime.
    This is a great list though.
