Got a couple, some probably already mentioned:

Pulp Fiction & Reservoir Dogs (Do Tarantino Movies even count as serious :-? ;-) )
Godfather Trilogy
Apocalypse Now
Goodfellas
Donnie Darko (Not really sure if it's considered serious but still a great movie)
Green Mile/Shawshank Redemption (mentioned quite a bit already)
Scarface

Due to the basketball scene I can't even count this as a serious movie.

My favorite serious movie is Day After Tomorrow. A chilling look at what the future holds if we don't do something about global warming.


"American History X" isn't a serious movie and "Day After Tomorrow" is? 8-o Maybe in Opposite World. :-b


You just don't understand science.


Just to dispute your theory :-)

When I was in the Air Force me and this white guy from Philly schooled two brothers from DC repeatedly.

They couldn't believe it. They kept trying to beat us but never did.

It may be rare but it can happen.

American History X is a great movie.

I will throw a vote for Shawshank Redemption as well. Great Movie.


It's not unbelievable because he's white, it's unbelievable because his jumper literally looks worse than my 5-year-old niece's, he's probably like 5'9", and his best "move" was bringing the ball behind his back while driving to the basket.

Almost forgot to mention another one of my favorite serious films:

I still think The French Connection was Friedkin's best "serious" film, but this is a classic 80's drama that rarely gets notice. Willem Dafoe is a tremendous villain and I've always liked William Petersen.

Yeah, To Live and Die in L.A. was good flick. ;-D

Man, when William Peterson bought it I was like... 8-o

If you like William Peterson, watch Manhunter if you haven't already. One of my all time favorites!

I was trying to find a picture of the kitten pie scene a while ago but I couldn't find it. If you ever run across it, let me know. ;-)
