so we sold our house and are having one built - i will be officially be out mid week and have time to enjoy one more movie - except for the receiver the screen, speakers and pj are staying as part of the house - the new place will not be ready for 5 months and then i get to set up the new one so it will be a while before i have an ht to enjoy -

so any recs? the house is otherwise empty - there will be no kids, no one to bother , just me and a good movie :-)

I'd do either Jurassic Park or Fifth Element.

Was gonna suggest the Harryhausen classic, Jason & the Argonauts (because of the OP's nick smile.gif). But I'll go with Bogie and Bergman in another well-known classic, Casablanca.

 

May not give the HT much of a workout, but you can't beat the chiaroscuro in an old B&W picture like that.

Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House or The Money Pit seem like appropriate picks. smile.gif
