I love all the serious mentions so far... I'd also like to add that I'm really warming up to will smith the action star, I really do think that however inferior an actor you may think he is, he's this generations hank fonda, good guy, lovable, comedy guy, but with the right director could make one hell of a rough and tumble bad guy/anti-hero... did you see him towards the end of I-robot, the guy can do tough, I'm excited to see the Omega Man/Last man on earth/I am legend remake that he's starring in... i'm not saying it would have necessarily worked, but he's my future hope for an older respectable box office type badass not so pretty actor, maybe my last hope.

as of now i think bruce willis is the only leone-type leading man around, a guy that ain't pretty and can act with the best of them, a real tough guy.

I listed those that I own currently, I did sell Navajo Joe to the g_c I think it was (correct me if I'm wrong) and gave away Aces High to Kermit/Cisco.  :)

I've seen Sabata, Deaf Smith & Johnny Ears,

not to sound ungrateful(because i'm lucky to have it) but I had been wondering lately where the hell i got navajo joe, that was me you sold it to... I'd just forgotten where i'd gotten it.

poor locations, and bad cinematography... hard to swallow coming from corbucci, can't wait to see it for myself... I almost bought foreign dvds numerous times, now i guess i won't have to.

just so you know, 1984, siddhartha, and heart of darkness are all free online and in full on that website I linked, personally I'm interested in reading any 4 of the nominated books. I have about an equal knowledge of all them but have never fully read any of them. 2 I've seen movies based on, and 2 I've semi-skimmed for school.

i am aware of that, but i'm also aware that most of the stuff i find brilliant in apoc is due to john milius' brilliance, but regardless of the movie and how great it is, the book still looks very interesting to me... i've always tried to seperate the two.

the last three movies I saw, specially because it's been such a rollercoaster...

Rocky Balboa... 4(almost a 5), putting the heart and soul back into rocky, I love it, and can't get enough. If you've ever liked any rocky film even for a moment it's a must see.

Poolhall junkies... 1, being such a huge fan of the hustler and the color of money and after hearing all the praise this one gets I'm absolutely floored, deflated, kaput, how could it be so horrible, not only is the main character/director give one of the worst performances of all time(clint's daughter gives him a run for his money as his love interest) but the story is completely void of any interest. The story basically consists of a conflict which is solved because of circumstances that deem the conflict resolved before they even try to resolve it. If uncle mike has so much money he can throw it away on a million to one shot without any worries why do they need to win the money so badly, it makes no sense, it all makes no sense, save yourself the money and buy a still of christopher walken to look at, it's a lot more interesting.

The Proposition... 4, i couldn't love nick cave any more, the guy is a genius and this film has one of the best endings Ive ever seen, specially considering it's basically a western and there is no real shootout. It just all fits so well, and it helps that good people screw themselves over by doing things they thought were right, always a tough angle to put across but always worth it.

i hate to sound like an english teacher, but i would nominate heart of darkness by joseph conrad, it's the most accessible of the books i've wanted to read for some time but haven't... and it's even online for free

I believe the only difference would be that instead of paying 250 to rent gbu for the evening is that you pay a flat fee or a certain percentage of the money made from selling tickets, whichever is higher, thats the way it works for first run films...

i think the best way to do it would be for everyone to nominate a book and then take a roll of which ones everyone can get a copy of, then go from there.

love the hitcher... horribly underrated, rutger hauer is so badass in that movie, and i'm basically in love with all of jennifer jason lee's characters pre-kansas city.
