  2. Jake this is a ridiculous post because there is just no way that you can pick the best movie ever. I agree that The Matrix is a great one and definitely ranks in the top 10 but there are so many other great movies. And your two poll lists are crap too! The Lake House? What in the hell? And Mean Girls is actually a good movie and definitely does not deserve to go on the "worst" list.

    If I have to actually pick a best movie I think I am going with Tombstone right now.

    Worst movie - The Postman, no doubt about it. I actually contemplated suicide after watching that piece of garbage because I felt completely empty and utterly disgusted with myself for getting through the whole movie. I can't believe that isn't on your list.

    And Casey, why have you seen Shaving Ryan's Privates? Were you looking for new grooming techniques? Or did you pre-screen it before giving to Cody as a present?

  3. Best Movie Ever: Ghostbusters
    Worst Movie Ever: The Postman

    Best Movie Quote

    Dan Akroyd: "Everything was fine until dickless over here turned off the power grid."

    Mayor: "Is this true?"

    Bill Murray: "Yes it's true, this man has no dick...(small scuffle)...well that's what I heard."

  4. You need to calm down sir. I can only post 4 poll answers at a time, so once we have a winner in this bracket then it will move onto the next poll with 3 additional options. So just help narrow down the results for now and I will use your movies from your blog comments as future options. And calm down sir. The Lake House is Eric's favorite movie and the only thing that would make it better for him is if it starred Will Smith. And did you just defend Mean Girls? And of course it's not easy to pick the best movie ever, but if you had a gun to your head and had to I'm sure that everyone could narrow best/worst down to one movie each. I was just opening it up for conversation. Please calm down sir.

  5. And please note that the 4th poll option for worst movie ever is the actual title of the movie. I was referring to the 3rd movie in the 'I know what you did last summer' series, it went straight to DVD. And yes, they are still considering making more of them, possibly a prequel.

  6. Jake is right...you need to calm down. But that doesn't mean you are wrong. Excellent points. Mean Girls, while not fantastic, is not even close to being the worst movie ever. And the postman is the biggest piece of garbage I have ever seen. It's so bad I actually tell people to watch it.

  7. I personally think best movies should be voted on by category. Action - 300, Scifi/superhero - Transformers, Chick flick - Notebook, Comedy - tie between 40 yrs. old virgin & Superbad, Drama - Green Mile. Worst movie ever....Lord of the Rings (all of them). It should never take three 3 hour movies to get to your destination.

    ReplyDelete
  8. That's enough! Everyone needs to calm down. Vote on the damn poll and I'll update it with better options once there is a clear winner.

    And how can Postman be the worst movie ever if it has Tom Petty in it? Would you still consider Postman the worst movie ever if instead of Kevin Costner, it starred Will Smith?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Considering Kevin Costner wrote, directed and starred in the movie, that's not really an easy question to answer. And might I add that a little piece of me just died after eden82's most recent post.

  10. Moonbeam 3000 - Are you going stand for Eden 1984's comments? Aren't you a LoR fan?

    ReplyDelete
  11. BTW...Justin and I are not the only ones who think this movie is terrible. In 1998, it won the the razzie awards for worst director, worst picture, worst actor, worst screenplay, and worst original song. It was also nominated for worst picture of the decade.

    ReplyDelete
  12. He is off today in Galveston....and get it right its 1982. Where does Star Wars fit in?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hey don't get me wrong, I cannot stand that movie. I think we might have all watched it together. I think we bought it on one of ou late night shopping trips to Wally Martinez. It's definitely going on the next round of worst movie poll options.

    ReplyDelete
  14. 82 would be right if I was referencing your birth year, but I was referring to Orwell

    ReplyDelete
  15. Do you think that they will make a Lake House 2 staring Will Smith? Jake that is a great idea.

    Best Movie: Fight Club
    Worst Movie: To many to choose from....

    ReplyDelete
  16. Why do I always agree with everything Brett says? I can't believe I didn't think of Ghostbusters.

    Winston (black Ghostbuster): Ray, when someone asks you if you're a god you say "YES!!!"

    And I am sorry for making such a fuss earlier but this is a topic that is dear to me. And a little piece of me died too with Sarah's comments. I don't think I agree with a single statement she made. While I enjoyed all the movies she listed (with the exception of The Notebook) I in no way consider any of them in the "best" category.

    And The Postman is the worst A-list movie ever. I don't care what you say, Brett and I are right on this one!

  17. I thought it was a war movie sequel to Saving Private Ryan, but the only battle scene in this movie is between Gillette Mach 3 and a post pubescent Hungarian man's genitals.

    ReplyDelete
  18. This blog sucks. I refuse to vote on the latest poll because I don't agree with any of my choices. I mean, yes, I do suck but I would also have to be agreeing that Jake is doing a good job on the polls. My pride will not allow it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Best movie: (tie) Se7en / Groundhog Day
    Worst movie: (tie) Battlefield Earth / Final Destination 3

    ReplyDelete
  20. Excellent choices Keith...I like your style.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  23. alright I updated the polls so stop your whining

    ReplyDelete
  24. Best: Neverending Story
    Worst: 3 Ninjas

  25. I keep reading Brett's Ghostbusters quote and laughing like an idiot. Dan Akroyd and Bill Murray are just awesome. Akroyd plays such an awesome 80's-rich-douchebag as Roman Craig in The Great Outdoors. I highly recommend checking it out!

    [A bat flies around in Roman and Kate's room]
    Kate Craig: Ahh!
    [Kate and Roman run out of their bedroom]
    Roman: What?
    Kate Craig: It touched me!
    Roman: It's been touching you for 12 years, you never freak!
    Kate Craig: Not you!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I agree, Great Outdoors is awesome

  27. Dana Barrett: Are you the Keymaster?
    Dr. Peter Venkman: Not that I know of.
    [She slams the door in his face. Venkman knocks again]
    Dana Barrett: Are you the Keymaster?
    Dr. Peter Venkman: Yes. Actually I'm a friend of his, he asked me to meet him here.

  28. Greats that haven't been mentioned:

    Back to the Future
    The Burbs
    Dune (I can't wait for the remake in 2011)
    2001: A Space Odyssey

    My second favorite quote of all time (from The Burbs):

    Ricky Butler: "No tan lines today Mrs. Rumsfield...nice!"

    Mark Rumsfield: "That kid next door's a meatball."

  29. I can't wait for them to remake Logan's Run

    ReplyDelete
  30. I don't know if you are joking or not but they are remaking Logan's Run in 2010.

    Oh yeah....Blade Runner. That movie rocks!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Best Movie Ever: I have a new appreciate for Office Space.

    Worst Movie Ever: any Lifetime movie (and yet, I still watch them) or any of the following dorky trilogies: Star Wars (the first, second or third trilogy), Harry Potter, or Lord of the Rings.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Don't forget about Nothing But Trouble!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Call me a homo but you've got to put The Princess Bride into the best category too.

    Another worst for me is Clerks. I just hated that stupid movie. The dialogue seemed so forced and unnatural. The only saving grace was Jay and Silent Bob.

    And Kelly, I am sorry that you don't get Star Wars because it has one of the best storylines of all time! Plus seeing how Darth Vader was "made" puts an entire new spin on watching episodes IV, V, and VI. I love Star Wars!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Best Trilogies: Bourne, 2/3rd of the Godfather, Terminator

    Worst Trilogies: 2/3rds of The Matrix, Final Destination, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles...Suck it Master Splinter, you're just a dumb rat...

    ReplyDelete
  35. best - tie between Napolian Dynomite and Wedding Crasher

    ReplyDelete
  36. Brett was that a reference to the greatest Film Actors Guild members of all time...M-a-t-t D-a-m-o-n

    ReplyDelete
  37. Correction---three way tie for best. Add Old School

    ReplyDelete
  38. Don't forget Three Amigos and Trading Places

    ReplyDelete
  39. Action: Best- Saving Private Ryan
    Worst- You Got Served

    Comedy: Best- Groundhog Day (Rushmore as honorable mention with Pineapple Express and Forgetting Sarah Marshall close...time will tell)
    Worst- Anything with Ryan Reynolds

    Childrens: Best- Neverending Story
    Worst- The Cat In the Hat

    Drama: Best- Synecdoche NY
    Worst- Crash

  40. oh Justin, I think it's just that you have a secrect crush on Carrie Fisher.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ok, man...a lot of posts, and I am sure this will be missed. But as I was not in Friday here is my thoughts. Sarah, you have not even seen all the Lord of the Rings (so you can't vote on 2 and 3). Now with that said, those movies are not in the top or bottom.

    Best Movie (hard pick): "Princess Bride", but Old School would be a more modern updated one.

    Worst, well that is easy...there has only been one movie I wish that I could gouge my eyes out in "Tailor of Panama".

    Movies at the bottom are also "Eyes Wide Shut" and "No Country for Old Men"

    As for "Logan's Run"...that movie rocked when I was little and I will go see the remake.

    Movie that is also great that most likely none of you have seen "Monster Squad"

    ReplyDelete
  42. Unless anyone can propose viable contenders for the below poll winners, it appears that the public has spoken:

    Best Movie Ever: Groundhog Day
    Worst Movie Ever: The Postman

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hahaha, so Post Man was on the front page of Yahoo tonight as one of the 10 worst movies ever...guess we are right.

  44. I am not ready to end this! I can't belive The Big Lebowski didn't make the final list.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hahahahahahahaha - Kevin, you gained some cool points with me buddy! You are now only the third person outside of my family that has seen Monster Squad. Matt Kasper is the other.

    "Kick him in the nards!"
    "Wolfman doesn't have nards!"
    "Just do it"
    [Kicks Wolfman in the nards sending him howling]
    "Whoa...Wolfman's got nards!"

    Nancy, I'm not ready to end this either! The Big Lebowski should totally be on the list. Jake needs to keep his polls going so we can find an all-time great!

    ReplyDelete
  46. jb - I will post a new poll with big lebo, ground hog day. What else do you think should make the final round?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Nancy and JB, stop your whining. New poll is posted.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I like the new poll...go list of movies. Justin, I think you are the only one besides the people I have forced to watch that movie who has also seen it. That is also the best line.

    ReplyDelete
  49. lost boys, whitewater summer, and real genius are all great movies as well

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh, Heather votes for the best movies of all time are "Twilight" and "Princess Bride". Her worst is also "Tailor of Panama"

    Another great movie was "Brave Heart" and "The Last of the Mohicans" The Last of the Mohican's would be in my top five for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Dances with Wolves is also an awesome movie

    ReplyDelete
  52. Lost Boys for sure - an all-time personal favortie. I also agree 100% with The Princess Bride (I named it as well several posts ago) and Braveheart. Braveheart still dominates me regardless of being over 3 hours long.

    Dances with Wolves is tough for me but that is only because Kevin Costner completely ruined himself and any other movie of his with The Postman. But seeing that The Postman was much later in his career, I will be big about this one and say that yes, Dances with Wolves is an awesome movie.

    Some old ones from childhood I liked were Follow That Bird, The Brave Little Toaster, and Labyrinth. I own Labyrinth and I'm not ashamed! I even appreciate David Bowie's huge sock stuffed in his crotch.

    You remind of the babe.
    What babe?
    The babe with power.
    What power?
    The power of voodoo.
    Who do?
    You do!
    Do what?
    You remind me of the babe!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I hate it every time they kill his horse, that is just mean...plain mean

    ReplyDelete
  54. I have the Labyrinth too, another great movie...but not sure if its in the top...but very good. How does everyone feel about Castaway?

    ReplyDelete
  55. Monster Squad is how I learned that it takes a silver bullet to kill a werewolf.
