Will- Did you catch that Meg Ryan's three roles are (in order) a maiden, a crone and a mother? If not, you haven't scratched the surface of my long-winded explanation of the genius that is JVtV

Ps. Big Fish is good, though I prefer some of Tim Burton's other work. I saw the Corpse Bride three times in the theater.

Why do I have a hard time believing that your list is limited to nine films.

The Happy Feminist

You know, there are lots of movies I like but I actually couldn't think of a 10th that I would want to watch over and over and over. I almost included Gladiator, and I can see myself watching it again, but not again and again.

TangoMan

How about 2001: A Space Odyssey? I can watch that countless times.

I'd have to say Two for the Road, Run Lola Run, Disney's Alice in Wonderland, Heavenly Creatures, Mulholland Drive and Dog Day Afternoon.

Also, any "tough guys/gals" movie scene where someone uses 2 guns at the same time.... what's cooler?

The Sting is at the top of my list. I *love* heist movies and I can quote most of the Sting without much trouble. (My sister and I are prone to yell "Who do you think you're talking to errand boy? Nobody sets me up!" periodically.) I also appreciate it for some reason because Robert Shaw plays such an evil slimeball and yet never swears or shoots anyone. Somehow "Take him back to the baggage room and put one in his ear!" is just better than "Shoot the bastard." But I digress...

I've also seen Radioland Murders more times than I care to count. Pirates of the Caribbean, Secretary, Ocean's 11, and Casablanca round out the list.

No lawyer can really publicly admit to enjoying Secretary.

But Spader was fabulous.

I have another year before I actually become a lawyer, so I think I can still admit it!

I think Maggie Gyllenhaal is a fantastic actress and Spader's really suited to his role. He has that vaguely creepy pervert look down pat.

- "The Color Purple" (probably my #1; Speilberg robbed of an Oscar)
- "Being There" (Jerzy Kosinski's book by same title is amazing)
- "A Beautiful Mind" (Crowe was robbed of his Oscar)
- "Leaving Las Vegas"
- "My Dinner with Andre" (offbeat, but very good)
- "A Bronx Tale"
- "Unforgiven"
- "Shawshank Redemption"
- for comedy, "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles"
