Like all of us, I do of course have my favorite movies.....what I am hoping to explore is the intensity that folks assign to movies and why.....

I like Mel Gibson.....wonderful actor.....(OK, maybe not the macho thing to admit I like his acting), ever since the drive-in release (OK, goes back aways) of Mad Max.....Braveheart was intense, Patriot was much more intense.....We Were Soldiers took intensity to (in my opinion) a whole new level.....

Most of you know I am a Star Trek fanatic.....but ST/SW (Star Trek/Star Wars) has nothing to match this.....

Thoughts? opinions?

I want this to go across movie lines too, so don't be shy.....

Hershal,
I can agree with We Were Once Soldiers, I fully enjoyed that movie. I can't say I paid much attention to Mels acting in the MM movies, but I did like him in the LW movies with Danny Glover.
As for the intensity of a movie I don't think you can beat the opening of D-Day in Private Ryan.
If I have to pick a favorite actor, I guess it would be Bruce Willis. I thought he did an excellent job in Tears of the Sun, which was an intense movie IMO.
Speaking of intensity across genre, how about the reading of the instructions for using the Holy Handgrenade in the Search for the Holy Grail? Three is the number that thou shalt count and the number thou shalt count is three. Thou shalt not count two unless proceeding to three.

My top ten in the "intense" category, in no particular order.
The Godfather
The Godfather Part 2
Jaws
The Exorcist
Raging Bull
Pulp Fiction
The Conversation
Philadelphia
Schindler's List
Psycho

Of course, if the category were "in tents" I would vote for Lawrence of Arabia and Dances with Wolves.:lol:
