Some hollywood aviation movies I liked were Jetpilot with John Wayne (keep your tongue in your cheek), Executive Decision with Kurt Russell, 12 O'Clock High with Gregory Peck, Dr. Strangelove with Slim Pickens, Airplane! with Leslie Nielsen, Flightplan with Jodie Foster, Memphis Belle with Mathew Modine, Top Gun with Tom Cruise, The Right Stuff with Sam Shepard, and Aviator with Leonardo DeCaprio. Aviation is a great element to weave into movies; many of the great aviation scenes are found in non-aviation movies.

Fight club was definitely a great movie...

Die Hard 2 was a pretty good flight movie...can't wait to see the 4th....and I thought I was gonna hate the Die Hard movies...now they're up there with my favorites...

I love Star Wars too, so if u don't, then don't trust my opinions, but I was reluctant to try them because Star Trek was a little too boring for me and I was afraid Star Wars would be the same, but they are sooo different..

If you agree with me so far, though, here's some other great ones: The Great Escape, Most Alford Hitchcock movies, Indiana Jones, The Princess Bride...

So not all flight movies, but those are my favorites to watch

Has anyone seen Red Eye? I was wondering if that one's any good...

Red Eye is pretty good. Quite a few twists and turns to keep you interested. This summer is looking good. Bourne Ultimatum is one I'm looking forward to.

Cubdriver: Seriously, Executive Decision? I had a real problem with that one. The gear warning horn goes off for like 5 minutes before Kurt Russell realizes it. It annoyed me. That and the "Stealth" 117 that held the team.
