You guys had some pretty good lists in this episode. I definitely agree with Matrix and Golden Eye.

The Matrix is one of my all time favorite movies. I remember when we went to see it in the theater we really had no idea what it was about. I hadn't even seen the trailer for it, but a friend said it looked cool. I walked out of there with my mind blown and I've loved that movie ever since.

For Golden Eye, I have to agree with James. I really like that particular Bond movie and it's one of the best Bond movies ever. However, all of Pierce Brosnan's later Bond movies were not very good at all. I personally tend to enjoy the Sean Connery and Roger Moore era films more.

There are two other films that I was a little surprised didn't even get mentioned. The first is Top Gun. Lot's of great dog fighting scenes, Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer; what more could you ask for? But seriously, that was one of my favorite movies growing up.

The second film wasn't quite as big or popular but I still enjoyed it, and that was Enemy of the State, starring Will Smith. It was a good combination of action, spy agencies, rouge government agents, and cool technology. I haven't watched it in years, so I don't know if it holds up anymore, but I would still suggest watching it if you haven't already.
