In order to serve my best interests, and increase revenue through the amazon associates program, this blog is a simple list of fun movies. Sometimes you just need to fire up the entertainment system and get lost for a few hours. Here are a few great blu-ray discs that won’t break your bank or destroy your debit card. For the same price as five to ten visits to a Redbox, you can own a blu-ray movie that you can watch over and over again. The best part is that these movies are very quotable.
Do movies get any better than The Princess Bride? Fencing. Fighting. Torture. Poison. True Love. Hate. Revenge. Giants. Hunters. Bad men. Good men. Beautifulest Ladies. Snakes. Spiders… Pain. Death. Brave men. Cowardly men. Strongest men. Chases. Escapes. Lies. Truths. Passion. Miracles.
“You killed my father…prepare to die!”
The Goonies. This is the movie of my childhood. Mikey, Mouth, Sloth, Chunk, Data and The Fratellis…oh yeah, and one-eyed Willie.
“Goonies never say die!”
Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly and Sasha Baron Cohen doing NASCAR.
“I like to picture Jesus in a tuxedo T-Shirt because it says I want to be formal, but I’m here to party.”
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. The second Will Ferrell movie on this cheap movie list, not to mention one of the greatest cameo fight scenes ever.
“I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly…”
Super Troopers. This movie has a cult following and it does not disappoint. I can’t say that for the rest of the Broken Lizard’s movies.
“It stinks like sex in here.”
Austin Powers trilogy. Three movies for the price of one! Mike Meyers playing two memorable characters and Elizabeth Hurley looking very shagadelic.
“That really hurt! I’m gonna have a lump there, you idiot! Who throws a shoe? Honestly! You fight like a woman!”
Napoleon Dynamite. I never understood the draw of this movie until I watched it a second time. It is still growing on me.
“I see you’re drinking 1%. Is that ’cause you think you’re fat? ‘Cause you’re not. You could be drinking whole if you wanted to.”
Office Space. People tend to forget that Jennifer Aniston stars in one of the funniest work office comedies ever made. Mike Judge hit it out of the ballpark with this 1999 gem.
“I’ll be honest with you, I love his music. I do. I’m a Michael Bolton fan. For my money, I don’t know if it gets any better than when he sings “When a Man Loves a Woman”.”
Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The oldest movie on the list, this movie has been quoted and misquoted for forty years.
“I don’t want to talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal food trough wiper! I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!”
Ghostbusters I & II. Technically, the cost is over ten dollars, but unfortunately they do not package these movies separately. The original Ghostbusters was Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis at their best. The special effects still hold up well even though they are thirty years old.
“Gozer the Gozerian, good evening. As a duly designated representative of the city, county, and state of New York, I order you to cease any and all supernatural activity and return forthwith to your place of origin or to the nearest convenient parallel dimension.”
