I'd feel remiss if I didn't include a clip from Cool Hand Luke.  A movie with a bunch of great lines, including, Sometimes nothing is a real cool hand.

 

And a phrase my kids were all to familiar with growing up, Spend the night in the box.

 

 

Shakin' the bush boss, shakin' the bush

And, what we have here is a failure to communicate.  One 'Cool' movie.  And who that's seen it can forget the looks on those guys faces  when the lady was washing the car.

I thought it would be fun to post your all time favorite cinematic moments.  For me, it’s impossible to choose between two, both ending scenes from two of my favorite films.  Both give me the goosebumps each and every time I watch.  Both are about three and a half minutes long.  And together they make up the best 7 minutes of film I’ve encountered.  They are offered below for your viewing pleasure:

Me too, I had to put the kids to bed, but I enjoyed it.

So is in the book is there more to the story between the brothers and the one brothers girlfriend?

Me personally I see a lot of our present day society in the movie star  brother and his family in the way people act today. Not a lot of personal responsibility, self-centered, materialistic, no real family love.

I though it was sorta clutch what the father said in his last sermon about the younger brother and his death.

Funny how old people's minds work.  Sometimes you'll try to think of something, can't, then weeks later, Shazam.  Well pilgrim, this thread wouldn't be complete without this scene.

Since Dumb and Dumber was the movie we would watch every Thursday in (actually it was wensday but I keep mispelling that day) while in college( remember , I went to school on an athletic scholarship) my Junior year. This would be the second best movie scene in the history of cinema.

Me too.  I loved the brothers aspect of the story but that sermon really hit home with me.  We have all been there with a loved one and felt helpless to do anything but love them.   “But we can still love them.  We can love completely, without complete understanding.”  Those words have stayed with me since the first time I saw this movie in college.  

The line from his father in the narration right before was pretty great as well.

Ok, one more.....

 

 

I remember watching this movie on an old reel to reel with my pops.  He loves this movie.  I am dating myself but I take solace in the fact that Reb is old enough to be my father.

I cant find the scene with the saluting toilets where Griffith was asked if he was being punished after telling the Colonel that it took him all night to get the latrine looking that way and that he was the PLO.....permanent latrine orderly.

Loaned this movie on VHS to a younger  man who had never seen or heard of it. He brought it back and said it had to be the funniest movie he had ever seen.

Lmbo, your Dad did a great job.  Only improvement I would've made on you, you'd be a lot more conservative :)

It wasn’t from a lack of trying ;)
