LOL. That movie is filled with classic quotes.

Marty: "Eight's the one, I'd stake my life on it."

Trotter: "They've got a $2 minimum bet."

“THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY”

Funniest movie ever!

“Take him the the helicopter!”

“Aiii yaiii, yaiii, yaiii, yaiii,!”

“I don’t want to talk about it!”

My son & nephew watched that time after time one summer and memorized most of the dialog.

“How did the Land Rover get in the tree?”

“I don’t want to talk about it!”

“Did you know that she has flowers on her panties?”

“So THAT”S how the Land Rover got in the tree!”

[not exactly what you are thinking]

“That’s a wait-a-minute bush! You must not mess with a wait-a-minute bush!”

That could be, I didn't have that service so I either saw it on tv or rented it, think the latter.

I was always scouring the rental places for period films, foreign films, and anything that piqued my interest. For some reason, Oriental never appealed to me, but I liked the Bridge over the River Kwai.

When I saw this thread, I thought of “A Man Called Peter.” My all-time favorite western is “The Ballad of Cable Hogue.”
Eclectic choices.

“The Gods Must be Crazy”

Mpudi: [looking at Steyn in a suit] And why are you so beautiful?
Steyn: I’m going to the school to give her these.
Mpudi: You gonna look like that?
Steyn: Like what?
Mpudi: Like it’s a funeral. You’ve gotta smile and tell her she looks good.
Steyn: How are you an expert on women?
Mpudi: I got seven wives. How many you got?
Steyn: Why aren’t you at home with them?
Mpudi: I know how to marry them. Nobody knows how to live with them.
Steyn: So, what did you marry them for?
Mpudi: Someday I have to tell you the facts of life...

“Yessir that’s my baby”

Great movie. Classic Robards.

I’ll add “The Great Santini”. Duvall chews up the scenery, but it’s still a classic.

My Aunt and Uncle knew him fairly well. When my Aunt joined her husband and Price for dinner, she chatted and was distracted. Eventually she smiled her delightful smile and asked “Well, Mr Price what do you do for work.” Price was gracious and depreciating and after about ten minutes it came to Auntie that this was Vincent Price. She blushed and stammered sweetly and it was all fine.

I agree, was fairly factual too. The Russian defenders at Brest threw a monkey wrench in Hitler’s easy victory for that segment of the front.

In the initial invasion (Operation Barbarossa) of Russia, most all other defenses quickly collapsed and troops surrendered by the hundreds of thousands. But not at Brest, they literally fought to the last man.

And that line is the key to the entire movie. I love it.

The sad thing is many people think the worst thing that can happen to them is their physical death.

a small bit of darkness when crossing from light to Light."

I’ve always read that he was one of the nicest actors in Hollywood. Actually, pretty much all horror directors and actors alike have a reputation for being very nice, gracious people. Maybe they get to work off a lot of repressed hostility!

Hi, Revolting cat and company:

I caught Payday at the base theater at Howard AFB in the Canal Zone ages ago. A great little no budget/road trip gem where Rip Torn excels as the very sleazy, debauched Maury Dan.

Two favorites of mine are Who'll Stop The Rain. With a young Nick Nolte, Tuesday Weld, Michael Moriarty and a couple keys of Laotian Heroin against a Who's Who of memorable bad guys led by Anthony Zerbe, Richard Masur and Ray Sharkey along the Post Vietnam Left Coast from San Francisco, to LA then south to Mexico. Faithfully based on Robert Stone's Dog Soldier. The flip side of Forrest Gump.

The other is Straight Time with Dustin Hoffman in a very non-Hoffman role as a paroled convict trying to go straight in contemporary LA, but hampered and screwed with at every turn.

With a great supporting cast of then up and coming talent. Including M.Emmet Walsh, Kathy Bates, Gary Busey, Harry Dean Stanton and Theresa Russell. Again faithfully based on the novel No Beast So Fierce by convict, Edward Bunker ('Reservoir Dogs' Mr. Blue).

Great catches on 'The Hill', 'Sometimes A Great Notion', 'Sweet Smell Of Success', King Rat' and 'Master And Commander'.


Jack.

Luther - Joseph Fiennes, Peter Ustinov, and Bruno Ganz

Good, but I prefer the 1953 b/w film, "Martin Luther," with Niall MacGinnis as Luther. I went to Lutheran grade school, and we saw it every year at Reformation time. Now I am a Lutheran pastor, and I still think it's great.

One good rule for what makes a rare movie is if you look at your week's or month's movie listings and aren't likely to see it there. If it frequently shows up on a major channel then it shouldn't be on this list.

Here's mine;

Norwood ( 1970 )
Honky Tonk Freeway ( 1981 )
O.C. and Stiggs ( 1985 )
Erik the Viking (1989)

None of these could be considered great cinema by any stretch of the imagination but are offbeat, likable, and not done to death, before or after their release.

I saw “A Man Called Peter” a month or so back on DVD. At the end it included one of Peter Marshall’s sermons only in audio.

Hearing that sermon with him speaking in his Scottish lilt was spellbinding.

I like - I Am David too
also like Run Lola Run
No Way Out - Kevin Kostner
Next - Nicholas Cage
Das Boot
basicaly I like movies with a real twist you don't see coming or ones that really make you think. I like Das Boot vecause of the unique way it was filmed, in a cramped space really simulating how cramped it is on a sub.
Another good Movie is The Ultimate Gift - James Garner I guess I do have a pretty long list.

I saw The Hill a couple of years ago and found it riveting. I think Sean Connery was trying to get away from his James Bond typecasting. Hard to forget James, but the movie was swell.

“Rolling Thunder” - William Devane and a very young Tommy Lee Jones kick some border slime azz.

The Steel Helmet - Gene Evans and Korea

New movie: Javier Bardem is outstanding in “Bitiful”

Robert Duvall is out of character in “Assassination Tango” but handles it well.

Breaking Away. A classic coming of age movie for local teens in a college town. Centers around bicycle racing. Nominated for 5 Oscars, and won for screenwriting. Rarely seen anymore.

Big Fish. Tall tales told by a father are an embarrassment to his adult son, but the stories turn out to be based on truth and the son understands their meaning as his father passes away.

I am glad you mentioned the 1953 “Martin Luther.” I haven’t seen it in years. I need to watch it again.

I am thankful for the Joseph Fiennes version of Luther because it helped stoke my daughter’s interest in Christian history and theology.
