    Since we have some time to kill until football arrives and our lives again have meaning, I thought we could debate the greatest movie of all time. Name the movie and your argument for why it’s the greatest.

      Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, obviously. Theatrical masterpiece.

            Remember when Conan O Brien made a big fuss getting Dirty Dancing back into the theaters for their 20th anniversary? He put up a big campaign and was pumped when it came back. So next show after seeing it and walks out and says sorry I remembered how crappy that movie is.

                I’m just not hearing any arguing. I was really just here for arguing.

                  Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It’s endlessly quotable and only gets funnier every time I see it.

                    I need to read up on my Shakespeare before seeing this movie, to appreciate it to its fullest.

                      Greatest movie all time for me is The Wizard of Oz! Introduced the power of movie magic and was something that from my grandparents to my children have enjoyed and their children will enjoy. Timeless. My second would be Spaceballs introduced me to the world of Mel Brooks and spoof comedies! Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, Robin Hood men in tights.

                        I don’t like movies that think they're smarter than me.
