Sunset BLVD for me since I have access to it. And a request for anybody that loves Being There but not seen Bad Boy Bubby that they watch the later...

I do love Being There...

Nothing really jumps at me. I know what I definitely don't want to watch though, so that's a start.

Then be like oldkid

That sounds like terrible advice. I don't want to end up with fifteen people in my house plus two children. Also, I cannot grow a beard like that, you should know that. You're just making fun of me...

(Although I will take the sweet religious tax break I assume he enjoys.)

@DarkeningHumour
If you want a 'heavier' Bad Boy Bubby or The Holy Mountain.
If you want 'lighter' The Blues Brothers or The Castle (although the Australian style of humour may not work for you)
If you want the better side of people Goodbye Mr Chips or Mary and Max
If you want the nastier side of people Once Were Warriors
If you are lucky enough to be able to see it on the big screen Apocalypse Now or Sorcerer (actually any film if you are lucky enough)

@Bondo
I like your bolded choices, but an itch in my head suggests Twilight Samurai over A Shot in the Dark for you. I cannot name the source of the itch.

Main considerations for me (I'll probably only watch a couple though):

Tsubaki Sanjûrô (to go with the Kurosawa part of the marathon I'll be getting to in about a week)
El laberinto del fauno / Pan's Labyrinth (really should see this before The Shape of Water)
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (I was a big fan of the book(s) growing up, enjoyed the Burton one too)
Dead Man (interested in more Jarmusch)
Bom yeoreum gaeul gyeoul geurig bom / Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring (FEB-induced interest in ponderous Asian cinema)
Sorcerer (to patriotically criticize it as obviously inferior to the original  ::))
La cité des enfants perdus / THe City of Lost Children (I love Delicatessen, it really makes no sense to not have seen this)
Tasogare Seibei / Twilight Samurai (I don't know, I like the title)

Definitely staying away from Jodorowsky. I have wondered about The Blues Brothers and Mary and Max before. And I have been meaning to watch Apocalypse Now for a really long time. I don't know the others.

Sorcerer (to patriotically criticize it as obviously inferior to the original  ::))

This is an intriguing proposition.

Sanjuro is the second one, right? If so, it is not as good as Yojimbo.

Dave, it's going to be either Ring of Bright Water or Boxing Day. Between the two, Boxing Day looks more interesting to me.

So you haven't voted in the poll?  Hopefully, you can restore the world to the proper order.
