A Few Good Men.

That ending scene between Jack Nicholason and Tom Cruise...
Jack was, as usual, BRILLIANT!!!

"You want the truth... you can't handle the truth!" SPOT ON!

Twelve Angry Men! Good ol' black and white movie

I've never seen A Few Good Men, but I hear it's also awesome.

I went with "A Few Good Men" also. That movie is just nails. The last half hour or so is excellent. So well written. How Cruise's character set's up Nicholson and gets him to break is fantastic. One of the best movie endings ever.

-HECK!

ok well the only movie I've seen all the way through is To Kill A Mockingbird. I have to say that that was an awesome movie. I did see a little bit of a Few Good Men. I hope to see the whole movie sometime.

To Kill A Mockingbird. The rest are mostly not bad. A Time To Kill comes a close second. A Few Good Men ain't all that bad, but after a little over 10 years it's already feeling dated, to me.

Runaway Jury is great.

I liked Philadelphia too, but that has considerable scenes outside the court.

If it were courtroom comedies, My Cousin Vinny would win it.

Actually, there is this new movie with Vin Diesel called 'Find Me Guilty' which was funny.

Sorkin man, he wrote it.

Tripped out when I heard it was a play first. Still, a dope flick.

It had some amazing court room drama. That movie, in general, was incredible.
