Classic Movies I recommend:

Apocalypse Now
Animal House
Fight Club
Saving Private Ryan

Man In The Iron Mask

I have a list too huge but those are a start lol

One of the best movies ever... Once Upon a Time in America with Robert DeNiro. In fact, I just ordered in today on Amazon. No store in Vegas carries it. If you like good surround sound movies, Top Gun.

Some classic car movies I highly recommend:

Grand Prix (1966) - the first (and probably, only) epic car movie
Vanishing Point - a big car chase kinda like the original Italian Job, but better, IMO

Vanishing Point is awesome....I had never heard of it but they mentioned it in R&T magazine in an article about the new Challenger, so I went on Ebay and bought it. Cool flick!

If some of you are into animation, you might enjoy downloading/renting/buying Hot Wheels - Acceleracers. It's a 4-part series of CGI car adventure that I think some of you ought to enjoy. I mean, c'mon were there any of us car guys here that didn't love their Hot Wheels? (heck, I've got 4 on my desk here at work right now!) ^_~
