    Dances with Wolves. Reason why, the era of time. I've always had interests in the homestead lifestyle.

    Fargo.
    For me, the world's most perfect film, thus far. The casting, the acting, the story, the script, the editing (know only a little about this), the music, the cinematography. There's humor, suspense, love and devotion, vulnerability, total evil, resolution.
    Have watched it several times and never bored.

    I cancelled my cable television right after the NBA finals wrapped up in the early summer, been surviving off Netflix solely. So there's definitely a few I've watched multiple times.

    Hunt for Red October - sooo damn good. I wish all the Jack Ryan movies were this good. Saw this twice in theatre as a kid and have watched it probably 100 times
    Forrest Gump - still gets to me everytime
    Hoffa (no longer on Netflix Canada, Nicholson's best imho)
    Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (LeCarre novel, so well done, Oldman is incredible)
    Fargo (as triumph said above)
    Inside Llewyn Davis (another Coen bros.)
    Sleepy Hollow
    Secret Window (another Johnny Depp based on Stephen King short)
    Untouchables
    Catch Me if You Can (Christopher Walken's "2 little mice" kills me)

    honourable mention: Croupier - Clive Owen is fantastic

    not a movie but strong contender: Hinterland (Y Gwyll) - a Welsh series; movie-length episodes, Richard Harrington so fucking amazing

    I could watch Hitman over and over. Olga Kurylenko and lots of guns? Yes please.

    I can also recite The Princess Bride in its entirety, scene for scene.

    The Day of the Jackal.

    One favorite movie is The Day of the Jackal written by Frederick Forsyth. The book and movie are verbatim.

    The Day of the Jackal trailer:



    Next would be Atonement written by Ian McEwan. The movie ending is different from the book's ending.

    Atonement trailer:



    The Bourne series I like watching but if you like Jason Bourne you'll like Peter Devereaux also known as The November Man based on the Bill Granger's 13 book series of Peter Devereaux.

    The November Man trailer:



    I also like the new BBC series of John Le Carre' novel The Night Manager.




    If you like Jason Bourne movies you'll probably like the new series on EPIX called Berlin Station. David Bowie is singing the theme song, "I'm Afraid of Americans."

    Berlin Station, episode 1 "Station to Station



    Berlin Station, episode 2 "Light Don't Run on Loyality



    I'm not that much in to James Bond 007 movies but when Pierce Brosnan played Bond he had couple of good movies. Then Pierce Brosnan got replaced with Daniel Craig. The early Daniel Craig Bond movies I didn't even watch until Skyfall. Now Skyfall is good with a lot of action.

    Skyfall trailer:



    Then the global criminal organization comes out, SPECTRE. SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion. Now this is a good movie with action and good lines especially during the interview with Dr. Madeleine Swann.

    I don't drink but in the movie Bond is asked by Dr. Madeleine Swann, "How much do you drink?"

    Bond replies, "Too much!"

    I was asked that question at my physical this year and I wanted to say, "Too much!"

    The occupation answer is great!

    SPECTRE trailer:



    I read more spy and espionage books than I watch.
