The Last Temptation of Christ
Last Temptation of Christ is an awesome flick, and the score by Peter Gabriel is probably my all time favorite movie score.

The score is also a great background music choice for those über romantic evenings. Forget Barry White, go with Peter Gabriel.

Cheers,
Wrathwilde

Ok, a different take, while not necessarily my favorite of movies, although they are both pretty up there and haven't been mentioned yet (that I saw anyway).... And they both cross genres significantly, so I can't really classify either one accurately.

Big Trouble in Little China For me a cult classic. Kurt Russel being..well...Kurt Russel. Sure he's one dimensional, but I wouldn't have it any other way with his pseudo-John-Wayneisms throughout.

Memorable quote: "When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail."

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas The first movie where I really started to respect Johnny Depp's acting ability. I mean you would completely forget it was him throughout most of the movie.

Memorable quote: Who are these people? These faces? Where did they come from? They look like caricatures of used car dealers from Dallas, and sweet Jesus, there are a hell of a lot of them at 4:30 on a Sunday morning. Still humping the American dream

Don't want to give away the movie........8)

I bought a bottle of their 2005 Chardonnay. It got me thinking about barrel fermenting/aging and Malolactic Fermentation.
