Wilbur Smith - The Courtney series (A MASSIVE read, which I have yet to complete)..... I go with that. Used to read them when I was offshore. But still not the top of my list.

And this guy knocked out some spiffing books too,

Besides the Lord of the rings trilogy and M.A.S.H. I'm a complete sucker for Canonball run and Smokey and the Bandit (you can wake me up for those ;D).
Got more kamp up my sleeve, but on a more serious note Deliverance is my classic of choice. Favorite western: Once Upon A Time In The West and Pale Rider, though that last one has competition by High Plains Drifter :)
Anything Terence Hill suits me fine at any time (rollerskating in a church never looked so tempting).
Oh and of course there's all the martial arts movies from the seventies and eighties and death wish and and and and ...
