And yet not one John Hughes nod?... @ffemt8978 I expected more from you.
Patience, young grasshopper. (Bonus points to those who know where that came from)

Actually, these 3 films are about all I have time for today. John Hughes marathon was going to be tomorrow (The Breakfast Club, Dutch, Vacation, and European Vacation) since those are the only ones I have ripped.

There's so much to choose from with The Dude, Lebowski, Blown Away, True Grit to name a few
How can you leave off some of the original sci-fi classics Tron (and Tron Legacy) and Starman? While RIPD sucked as an overall movie, he played the role really well there too.

JB is good in everything. TBH not a big Tron or Starman fan. I actually enjoyed RIPD
I'm not a huge fan of him in True Grit...to me Rooster Cogburn will always be associated with the Duke.

During high school, I worked as an usher in a movie theater where True Grit was playing. After a month or so, I knew almost all the lines. Talk about useless information. Anyway, I thought of John Wayne as Rooster Cogburn until The Shootist came out.

I finished the night off with The Last Samurai. Our oldest enjoyed it with me; made my day.

Haha, those were two of my favorites. They were also lesser known.

This did inspire me to show the girls the “Mexican American” song from their Next Movie. They got a kick out of it for sure.

And FWIW, we’re both Mexican and American, with some Salvadoran sprinkled in from mama. Boy how (sadly) some things have changed.

It's even sadder that you have to explain your ancestry in order to enjoy some truly classic humor. I grew up watching Speedy Gonzalez on the Bugs Bunny Roadrunner Show and never once thought it represented Mexicans accurately. I just thought it was funny.

It is indeed, unfortunate. And I believe it’s his cousin Slow Poke Rodriguez who portrayed “us” much better😆

Which did you think was better? The original Ocean's 11 or the remake?
