Maybe this would've been a harder vote if not for the fact that I only saw Airplane! for the first time a few months back. Still liked it, mind you, but Billy Dee is just sooooo smoooooth.

this is harder than i thought.
two great movies from 1980.

i suppose i'll go with Empire because it's the only one with a muppet in it.

A muppet that could lift a sinking x wing at that.
Sorry airplane I love you but you're going down.
It's like BJ Galore over here!


I use records for that and don't have to justify it to my friends.

All of you have forgotten the two most important reasons why Airplane is better than Empire...

Oh! That! No, no, no, you're not ready to step into The Court of the Crimson King. At this stage in your training an album like that could turn you into an evil scientist.

I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Not even a question.
A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, there was a movie that didn't suck. That movie was not Airplane.
If we could see these many waves that flow through clouds and sunken caves...

They're both great films that made my list but, at the end of the day, I had to vote for what I've actually watched the most.  Airplane!

My sentiments exactly
We are all and we are all we are
Far flung bits of Sun and bits of Stars
From the  ocean from the land from the
beginning to end
Backwards forwards back toward
we belong
