I love the movie Amelie, great flick. The first time my wife and I watched in on dvd, her water broke a few minutes after the movie was over. I actually thought about naming my daughter Amelie.
Im madly in love with Audrey Tautou

THE BIG LEBOWSKI- "Thats a bummer man"

UNFORGIVEN- "The Duck I says"

CADDY SHACK- "I like you Betty"
"Its Danny Sir"

Star Wars ep IV V VI- "DA deflectalllrrr SHIELD..............IS TOO STRONG"

Kill Bill Vol 1&2- "You can get a good view of my foot from there"

RESEVOIRE DOGS- "How would you feel, if every time you had to take a piss, you had to do a hand stand?"

HEAT- No quotes, just the best bank robbery scene in any movie ever made, which has been the gold standard of gun battles in hollywood films ever since. actually I lied. Al Pacino goes " WHAT DO WE GOT!?" a lot in that one, lol.

And consolation prize goes to Man on Fire. Denzel gets all kinds of homicidal and it suprises with violence almost everytime i watch it

Ditto to that.

As I'm looking at everyone else's lists, I 'm seeing more movies that I didn't think of. There are some real great "guy" flicks listed here.

Oh, and then there's Amelie.

Damn it i can't believe I forgot PREDATOR- "Stick around"

Who ever posted the predator musical, genius :rotf2:

p.s. the new Predators aint the worste action movie i ever seen.(watching it right now) Decent actors you'll recognize. better than pred 2 3 and whatever the hell predator/alien movies they came out with. AND one of the scenes actually references predator 1, but alas, doesnt hold a candle to the o.g. pred
