Sermon on the mount scene from The Life of Brian (Monty Python) Maybe it's British humor, but gets me laughing my socks off every time.

Oh...a little ashamed to admit this one.. but.. the final scene in Karate Kid when he does the crane move. Gives me goose bumps. haha. (Don't mention that to anyone though)

Viola Davis managed to get an Oscar nomination despite being in the movie under ten minutes. Devastating performance. How to hold your own against Meryl and claim your son is better off with a paedophile? - UNBELIEVABLY GOOD.

Branagh's "Much Ado about Nothing" has to be the best Shakespeare adaptation I have ever seen.

Katie - the crazed yak.



The writer has said that he based Katie on a crazed next-door neighbour he had.

Utter nonsense.



You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

Okay - you almost got me there. The Polanski and Taymor adaptations are awesome. Loved them (and love whatever they do). But "Much Ado" is still splendid. It's more difficult to do a great Shakespearian comedic adaptation - comedy doesn't translate as well over the years. Tragedy is kinda universal. "Much Ado" go it right. It was the first time I thought "Shakespeare can be funny." Have you seen it?

The only gay film I've seen is "Terminator 2". Oh, and "Strictly Ballroom".

Good Will Hunting is one of my favorite movies of all-time. I just love the scene at the end of this clip where Will delivers the famous "how do ya like them apples?!..." line. The whole scene where it starts back in the univ bar is classic though.
