Movies I Have Seen 10 Or More Times

mrrranda were talking about movies we had seen 10 or more times. My list was pretty typical: Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Brazil, Better Off Dead, Ghostbusters, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Airplane!, Top Secret, Trading Places, Beverly Hills Cop, etc.

mrrranda's list was a little more unusual: Akira, El Topo, Holy Mountain, Ninja Scroll, Black Lizard....

- Wait a sec, what's Black Lizard?
- You mean you've never seen Black Lizard?
- No, I haven't.
- Let's go rent it NOW!

Billing itself as "Naughty Japanese Noir," it is a campy late-60s movie about a brilliant and sexy criminal lady called Black Lizard (played by a transvestite) and her nemesis, a brilliant and stoic detective. Black Lizard likes to collect, among other things, beautiful young people so that she can kill them, stuff them, and keep them on permanent display in her private museum.

Last night I dreamt that an antisocial Vietnam vet named Swackhammer broke in to a Vietnam War museum and set off a live chemical bomb that was on display. A huge orange cloud with a demon-face in it covered the entire city and was undoubtedly going to kill us all.
