This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I have Blockbuster online (it's like Netflix) and my queue of movies is bottoming out! If you mention a movie and I haven't seen it (and I don't find any moral objections against it), it will get added to my queue.
I will update this post with my queue's contents as I add your suggestions. Please help me reach 30 movies!
My list was removed... as 2 long lists were provided for me. Thanks! I've only seen a few of the films/series listed, so this is great.
*********************** PS - I could still use some more chick flick suggestions so my wife will have plenty of "not-scary" stuff to watch with me. I find the older of such films more palatable, so long as they aren't musicals. Any help there? *********************** [ July 26, 2006: Message edited by: Marc Peabody ]
Dude, up to 30? I periodically delete things I've listed in a futile attempt to get my queue under 100. You need to get into some good TV series - those will fill up your queue in no time. In no particular order (at least, not one that should matter to anyone else):
Firefly (+ Serenity) Doctor Who (particularly the new series, but older ones are fun too) Battlestar Galactica (only the new series, of course) Farscape Babylon 5 Ghost in the Shell Cowboy Bebop Buffy Angel the Vampire Slayer The Sopranos Six Feet Under Arrested Development
I could find some movies to recommend too, but if you just want to fill up an empty queue, this is the faster route. [ July 25, 2006: Message edited by: Jim Yingst ]

Kramer and The Nanny.
UHF is one of my favorite movies of all-time. It was one of only a few movies I owned on VHS and I very well may have seen it 100 times. I own it on DVD now but I haven't seen it in over a year. I think I'll put it on this weekend and see if I can still quote the entire thing word-for-word.
It is an advertisment of Usher since it is him, has all of his songs, etc. But my wife loves his body and it is a mob story and a love story. I would rate it as "Will not see again" but it was not bad.
I have a bunch of chick flicks up next in our queue, so I will suffer through them and tell you what are okay to suffer through!

These aren't exactly "chick flicks," but from my list above, Henry Fool and The Lords of Flatbush have a good chance of passing. Maybe even The Saddest Music in the World, which actually is a musical. (Kind of. Well, not really. Okay, maybe not.)
