Constantine is a lot of fun ; Nightcrawler is great.

Great movie picks. I always thought Bogus Journey was the superior B&T film, and that dialogue in Ronin is amazing.

roujin commented that this was a weird ass list on twitter. My movie watching was rather paltry and for about the first six months I was still recuperating from some medical stuff, so I mostly watched films that didn't require a lot of thought. Not all of these movies are ones I would claim are great, but I thoroughly enjoyed all of them.

Movies
Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
Constantine
Nightcrawler
The Outlaw Josey Wales
Ronin
Tremors
Wayans Brothers Comedies

Damn Sam! I didn't realize you were having the most awesome year! Ronin, Tremors, Scary Movie, Austin Powers! Excellent discoveries! Ronin especially. Doesn't it have such a neat atmosphere! Maybe it's just because it's set in not-America. I agree about the dialogue. Love it. The movie has so much unique flavour to offer, the car chases are the cherry on top.

Just 1 and 2. I found that after the Waynes Brothers stopped being involved there was a huge drop off. #3 was unremarkable, and then I don't think I bothered seeing any more after that. Have you seen any of them?

@Sam Any list with both Tremors and Pather Panchali in it is automatically great.  8)

Looking back, I realize I included Into the Inferno which is a 2016 film. Doh!
