    This has been probably been done before, but let's try it at least one more time. Give a short list of your favorite movies. Recommend one or save someone the time from watching something horrible. I get Blockbuster in the mail and am constantly looking for something new and exciting.

    +1 to Fight Club & Office Space.

    2001 A Space Oddysea is great if you have the patience

    A couple of less know movies (over here at least) that I found enjoyable:
    -100 Women (Also has a pre/sequel 100 Girls)
    -Empire Records

    Kevin Smith movies are great. He does anything from ridiculous stoner comedy to serious drama.

    Just watched 2001 A Space Odyssey a few weeks ago. Got it for Christmas. A great movie stoned. Recently watched Saving Grace again - every time those lights go on, I just about wet my pants.

    Other favorites
    Local Hero

    Peculiarities of the National Fishing - laugh out loud movie in Russian w/ English subtitles. Not a great stoned movie due to the need to read but worth seeing.

    The Zero Effect

    The 2nd Kill Bill movie - best of the 3, imo

    No list of mine is complete without The Red Green Show. Got all 10 seasons on 51 DVDs for Christmas.
