I think most people would agree that John Williams should be given his own large private land mass from which to rule all would-be composers so that they do not stray from the true path of writing kick-ass film scores.

Either that or he should be givin his own holiday both in America and in Britain (since his favorite orchestra to record with is the London Symphomy Orchestra).

Animal.... House! [squeaky high pitched adlib] Where the fun never ends!...

In seriousness I don't know too many good ones. Defintely Glory, Gladiator, the Original Star Wars Trilogy and Saving Private Ryan. But there are more I could add.

1. STAR WARS! (Original Trilogy) "Fast ship? You've never heard of the Millennium Falcon? It made the Kessel run in less that twelve parsecs"
2. Star Trek Movies (1,2,4,8) "KHAAAANNN!!!!!"
3. Boondock Saints "We must always fear the wicked. But there is another kind of evil that we must fear the most, and that is the indifference of good men."
4. Fight Club "The first rule of fight club is..."
5. Ghost in the Shell "If we all reacted the same way, we'd be predictable, and there's always more than one way to view a situation. What's true for the group is also true for the individual. It's simple: Overspecialize, and you breed in weakness. It's slow death."


All very good movies.
