Bash this list all you want, its not what I'm calling the best movies
ever, just my 26 most entertaining movies to me. Why am I doing 26
instead of 25? Cause I looked at the 26 and couldn't think of which one
to eliminate to get down to 25, so screw it.

In alphabetical order...

American Pie
Attack of the Clones
Austin Powers 1
Beavis & Butthead Do America
Blues Brothers
A Christmas Story
Dances With Wolves
the Empire Strikes Back
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Forrest Gump
Groundhog Day
the Incredibles
Independence Day
Narnia - LWW
National Lampoons Vacation
Pirates of the Carribean 1
Ratatouille
Return of the Jedi
Revenge of the Sith
the Shawshank Redemption
Shrek 1
Shrek 2
South Park
Spaceballs
Star Wars
UHF

> Ratatouille
> Return of the Jedi

That *just* missed the cut. I had 30 movies at first and that was one I
took out in an attempt to get to 25.

I'm a big Star Wars mark (hell, I put Attack of the Clones in my top 26)
and Spaceballs fucking rules, man. You've got to see it. You won't be
disappointed.

You are gay for this. I saw it in the theatre in 99, and regret it.

> Attack of the Clones

El Oh El. I was just wondering the other day who likes this movie.


> Austin Powers 1

2 might be better. 3 was definitely the worst though, by a pretty wide
margin.

> Beavis & Butthead Do America

Very disappointing. Not as bad as the last couple seasons, but not
nearly as good as the show in its prime.

> Blues Brothers

Overrated.

> A Christmas Story

I used to love it once, but saw it too many times. After the TNT 24
hour marathon I can't watch it anymore.

> Dances With Wolves

It's good, but I don't know about all the critical acclaim and it's
status as a classic now.

> the Empire Strikes Back

As a whole it's a better movie than episode 4 and 6, but there are
scenes from 4 and 6 that are much better than some of this movie.

> Ferris Bueller's Day Off

This one is in my top 5.

> Forrest Gump

This movie did more bad for American than good. Before it Tom Hanks
was the guy from that TV show, and Big. But afterwards, he only had to
star in "touching" movies.

> Groundhog Day

Remember when TBS used to show this 80 times a year? It was good the
first seven or eight times I saw it, but it's really just a romantic
comedy, with a gimmick.


> the Incredibles

I agree.

> Independence Day

El Oh El again.

> Narnia - LWW

Good movie, but it's two and a half stars compared to the book.

> National Lampoons Vacation

I prefer European Vacation.

> Pirates of the Carribean 1

It's ok, but the romanctic scenes were too cheesy.

> Ratatouille
> Return of the Jedi

Like I said above, the scene where Luke is dressed in black and acts
like a badass at the sarlaac pit is better than most scenes in TESB.

> Revenge of the Sith
> the Shawshank Redemption

Yeah, it's ok I guess. Too high lauded, and it used to be way too
overplayed on TV, but it's good.

> Shrek 1
> Shrek 2

No to both of these. You might as well list Beauty and the Beast.

> South Park

This was much better than the Beavis And Butthead movie.

> Spaceballs

I hate how Mel Brooks combined Luke and Han Solo into one character.

> Star Wars

Han shooting first is > than much of TESB.


> UHF

Can you believe there are people that have seen this movie, yet had
never seen the dire straits money for nothing video and didn't
understand the beverly hillbillies parody in this movie? I learned
that on youtube.

YES!

Just watched it two nights ago for the first time in almost twenty
years. A godawful movie, but in an entertaining way.

You aren't missing much. There's at least 5 movies by Mel Brooks
*MUCH* funnier than Spaceballs.
