    Remaking They Live would be like remaking the Mona Lisa.

    the best part about that fight is the reason they are fighting
    "put on the glasses!"
    "NO!!"
    "put on the glasses!"
    "FUCK YOU!!!"

    I wouldn't classify it as greatest ever, though. It's one of the most fun movies ever. But greatest in my book goes to Citizen Kane and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? at this time of my life. Ben Hur and Cleopatra, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof....all of those are right up there, too. There are so many definitions to great.

    Oh man The Hustler is great, too. And Hud, and Cool Hand Luke. The Hustler is one of those movies that I watched when I was deep in depression, and I enjoyed pretending to be Sarah Packard.

    I actually really like 10, too. I think it's underrated. And I don't think Some Like it Hot is the funniest movie of all time by a long shot.

    The Hustler was a great movie. Did you like the sequel, The Color of Money that Martin Scorsese did?

    My favorite Billy Wilder movie is The Apartment

    And Whatever Happened to Baby Jane is equal parts terror and really really REALLY dark humor. I also love All About Eve.
