I can't let my favorite movie of all time go without an appreciation thread when its two sequels get one. I missed this in theaters by ten years when it was originally released but I have fond memories of mowing laws and doing other chores when I was five or six to save money for these beauties: I watched and watched those tapes until they gave up the ghost. I loved these movies. And while all three are my favorite movies of all time, if I could only choose one it would be the original. I don't mind the special editions, but the theatrical versions will always be my preferred versions. The characters, the locations, the music, just everything caught my imagination. One of the only times a movie has ever literally taken my breath away was the first time I saw the trench run. It was something very special to me and still is today. Lets hear some of your stories about this movie. When/where did you first see it? Who're your favorite characters? What's your favorite piece of music from it? Etc.
