Tombstone. The perfect redemptive, schlocky vehicle for over-motivated cyclists. Val Kilmer is the perfect leadout guy.

Great choice. If re-watchability (is that a word?) is a criteria, Memento places high on the list.

Nor have I. In all honesty I question if watching it "forwards" would really shed any light.

guilty pleasures are many "fast times at ridgemont high"
"the princess bride"
"it's a mad,mad,mad,mad,mad world"
"this is spinal tap"

If you get a chance to watch Ben Hur, you won't regret it. Makes most movies look like the complete pile of poo they are.

Talk about over-sensitivity, falsity and hypocricy and worrying about all the crapola that normal people throughout the universe couldn't care less about. And what horrible coffee!

The retro-black-and-white style and the shot framing made an otherwise mundane exchange a commentary on mass cultural neurosis.
