A couple of days ago I rewatched Con Air (1997) for the first time since it originally came out. I only remembered the basic plot as well as the wailing guitar soundtrack, but man, what a goofy movie. They sure don't make them like that anymore. Nic Cage's Southern accent is something to behold. Hilarious premise, lots of great gags (Colm Meaney's fancy car getting dragged into the air, John Malkovich's Looney Tunes-ass demise), unbelievably stacked cast, loads of stupid fun.
Man I need to rewatch Face/Off. Another one I saw in 35mm upon release, but haven't ever revisited ever since. I'm sure I'll appreciate it even more. Need to catch up on John Woo in general!Con Air is a classic! Love me some dumb 90s Cage, like that, Face/Off, the Rock etc
Might I ask why? I've noticed on imdb that these two films are in the top 25 or so (I think Shawshank is #1?) and while I haven't seen The Green Mile, I have seen Shawshank and, well... it wasn't THAT interesting. It was a good watch once, I never feel like watching it again. To me that knocks a film far down the list; if it ain't rewatchable, what's the point? It's a linear plot with an uncomplicated ending... so what's there to revisit?Greenmile is prolly my all time favorite....close tie would be Shawshank Redemption
