I have a lot of dated guilty pleasures from high school and shortly after (mid 90s to early 2000s) that I'll admit are stereotypical for that time and age group (*cough*Natural Born Killers, The Crow, etc*cough*)...but I will say that 12 Monkeys holds up really well. I'm going to be re-watching it *again* next week after showing the trailer to a friend of mine who had never seen it and they are excited.

Then, there's Spaceballs...which is probably my favorite comedy...which that fact is extra hilarious because to this day, I still haven't seen any of the original movies. Don't get me wrong, I've seen clips of tons of them, and I get all of the references in pop culture, in the Robot Chicken, South Park and Family Guy spoofs, etc.

Airplane, The Dark Crystal, Four Rooms, and Dark City are all favorites.

The main ones are probably the original Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies and the Lord of the Rings movies. Everyone says those but they definitely are some great and fun movies to watch.

For comedy movies I like UHF, although I never watched it until I got out of college. I like silly movies. Kung Pow: Enter the Fist is another favorite of mine.

The Goonies is another good one.

I'm not a fan of the last Indiana Jones movie, and The Force Awakens wasn't as good as I had hoped, but Rogue One is great. The Hobbit movies also didn't click with me like the original LotR movies did.

I don't go to the movies all that often. I may see one a year, if that. I saw Rogue One, and I saw The Jungle Book last year as well, which was not bad, but it felt kind of pointless being a live action remake.

Alien and Aliens. The sequels after that were disappointing and full of a lot of holes.

I was on the waiting list to work at the same cemetery that Mark used to work at. I saw Mike at a Best Buy, and explained the differences between CD-R and CD-RW as he was looking confused. :)

No, that's it. While I grew up in SE Wisconsin, those are my only two that relate to that movie. My brother saw Mark at the Menard's my brother worked at, and got his autograph (I have it in my DVD case). Apparently he was looking at something in the plumbing supply section, in case you were curious.

Although, you were supposed to ask about the waiting list for the cemetery, so that I can re-tell my favorite joke response when people usually inquire about that purposefully-leading line:

"Yes, they actually had a waiting list because it was a sweet gig. People were...*ahem* dying to work there."

Just watched 1408 again recently. I forgot how much I liked this relatively simple movie. Based on a Stephen King story, John Cusack and Samuel L Jackson. I appreciated that the end was...what it was. It didn't take easy ways out. I can't say much more than that without spoiling it. Some cool twists and turns and some interesting effects.
