"Veiners" looks like how a stereotypical German person would say weiner. And that makes me giggle.

Movies:

1. Return of the Jedi (Empire was the better film but my first dip into Star Wars was with this movie)

2. The Dark Knight

3. Texas Chainsaw Massacre

4. Let the Right One In (since everyone else is putting a goofy foreign flick)

Directors: (Because a shitty actor can be awesome in any roll as long as the director doesn't suck)

1. Rob Zombie. Don't judge me. This guy has style the likes of which has never been seen. He single handedly brought back the classic 1960s slasher flick

2. Quentin Tarantino. Name one movie he's done that has been terrible. I dare you.

3. David Fincher: Alien 3? SeVen? Fight Club? The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo remake? Yep...amazeballs.

4. Christopher Nolan. Not only did he give me back my Batman movies (I hope you burn in hell Joel Schumaker for Batman & Robin) but Memento was nothing short than a cinematic masterpiece.

Referring to it also as the Holy Trilogy counts as calling it one film.

I love Highlander, mainly because of the music by Queen, but also having Sean Connery playing a Spaniard was entertaining!

Now if only I could transmog some gear to look like the Kurgan

I recal watching highlander in French, because I was in france, and well it was highlander, so totally better than leaving the hotel.

After much consideration

1) The Animal Room (something about Mathew Lillard in that film, he just does total mentalist really really well)

2) Into the wild (also awesome soundtrack)

3) Cronicles of Riddick (I don't care that everyone else hates it I love it. Teacup. Word.)

4) Watchmen (although I think the director when a bit ott with 'look how much I love the comic honest guys')

5) Starship troopers (first 15 I saw at the cinema, true story. Does Neil Patric Harris actually age?)

Probably totally forgotton about something but without actually looking at my movie collection that should cover it.

Actor wise I love mathew lillard, I think hes magic. He has been in more films than you realise and does have a tendancy to pop up right left and centre.

While the Holy Trilogy of SW and the swashbuckling sexiness of the Pirates of the Carribean movies are also at the top of my all time lists, and my recent WOWZWEERS that was KICKIN at the recent Avengers movie will also be top too, here are a few loooong time stand outs for me. Since we do not have cable or satelite Television (i know, CRAZY, right?) movies are important to me.

Actors/Directors-since many are crossover nowadays
