One Hour Photo or Catch Me If You Can are both good rentals.

Some random suggestions of my favorites in no particular order:

007 Series - At least the Sean Connery ones.....although Pierce is pretty good too.

Gattica - Not for everybody, but if you like intellectual SciFi, it's great.

The Professional - Coolest shootout scenes ever.

12 Monkeys - More intellectual SciFi.....

The Ninth Gate - For some reason I liked it, Johnny Depp in a supernatural thriller.

Memento - Don't want to give anything away.....but if you haven't seen it, get it.

Blade Runner - SciFi classic.

In the Company of Men - Makes your skin crawl how evil normal people can be.....makes you hate men, even if you are one.

The Shawshank Redemption - One of the best movies ever, totally snubbed on Oscar night, but is on TNT like every week.....

LA Confidential - Already mentioned, but I'll mention it again.

Boiler Room - Low budget, but I liked it for some reason.

The Usual Suspects - Will convince you that Kevin Spacy is the best actor ever.

American History X - Chilling movie, opening scene is jaw dropping.

Glengarry Glen Ross - Great movie, if you've ever been a commisioned salesman you gotta see it. Alec Baldwin is awsome in this.

28 Days Later - Cool update of the classic zombie movie.

Reign of Fire - Low budget, but cool....

Probably a couple others that I'll think of later.

I love the ideas on here y'all...It works out that the thread has carried over to today, because I was planning on renting one last night, but a friend came over and we ended up playing madden all night and never made it to the movie store :*) ...I'll probably make it to the movie store sometime over the weekend, so this might very well come in handy. I'm gonna have to save this thread. I go through different phases w/ my movie tastes. I love Cohen Bros film, Tarantino, Guy Richie, etc. I also totally dig a good comedy (especially dark alah Rushmore), I go through phases where I want to rent some old school classics such as the previously mentioned Dr.Strangelove (or Annie Hall) etc., go through horror flick periods(28 days later was cool), love a good sports movie like slapshot or The Program (this came out when I played FB, and pumped my whole team up after going to see it..especially Latimer), love the :-° inspired movies (Dazed and Confused...another high school classic or The Big Lebowski /aslo great), love weird psychological movies (Pi,Memento,12 Monkeys) and most recently was in an independent film phase (most recently Crime 101). I'm suprised no one recomended Snatch or Clockwork Orange. Ok, about as broad as the horizon can get...if anyone has anymore, add em...Thanks again for all of the suggestions ;-D

Some Canacuna recommendations (some recent, some not so recent)...

(Added after writing to say that Buckychudd has awesome taste in movies. ;-) )

Adaptation
The Big Lebowski
Boiler Room (Note: Vin Diesel is only good in supporting roles)
Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
Gattaca (surprisingly good for a sci-fi)
Glengarry Glen Ross
Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy (only if you like the show)
L.A. Confidential
The Man Who Wasn't There (Coen Bros.)
Memento
The Million Dollar Hotel (I liked it, but everyone I know says it's too slow)
Office Space
Rounders (good poker movie)
Suicide Kings (Christopher Walken, Jay Mohr = goodness)
This is Spinal Tap (David Guest movie - "mockumentary")
True Romance (written by Tarantino - money used for Resevoir Dogs)
The Usual Suspects

In the first week of February, Lost in Translation and Ed Wood come out on DVD. ;-D

Pretty impressed with the choices here. Not what I would have expected from a bunch of fantasy geeks like us. Seems that, contrary to popular belief, fantasy football doesn't actually contribute to atrophy of the mind. On the contrary, I think these are some of the best movie choices I've seen from a semi-random and unaquainted group. ;-D

One more, Adaptation, the best screenplay of the past year. Not to everyone's taste, but hilarious for those with a slightly bent sense of humor.

Argh. Ed Wood has been "delayed indefinitely" at the last minute again. Some stores even have this movie... Maybe I can grab it off of eBay or something...
