Y'know, since The Big Lebowski was brought up, I think I'll bring up two of my favorite films;
The Fifth Element
....is made of amazing. A fantastic soundtrack, and Bruce Willis is really entertaining.
....made cry last night. Seriously, it was the scene when Anderton is about to kill Crow, and Crow is saying "I was gentle". Eeeugh. Sad. But it ends well! Though not necessarily happy.
