Annie Hall by Woody Allen.

"He called me a Jew at the dinner table."
"No. What he said was, 'Do you want the salt, D'YOU"
"No, I'm sure he said Jew"

Sideways
Two men discussing wine, "Quaffable, but far from trancendent".

And I should also mention Dune. Ah, the Spice

Toss up between The Good, The Bad & The Ugly (the DVD is awesome, loads of extras) and Blade Runner....

Honourable mentions go to The Lost Boys, Apocalypse Now, Get Carter, and Easy Rider.

Hard to pick a favourite as my opinion changes all of the time. It would have to be the masterpiece The Shaw shank redemption if any.

Thats an obscure list. I've never seen any of them.
What's 'Balde Runner' ?
Is it about a folically challenged athlete?
Or a hairdresser on the run maybe?
Or a documentary about Brazilian bikini lines?
