Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, though he's pretty damn good in Tombstone.

I haven't seen Heat. :Oops:

I went with Heat but Tombstone was close because of the "I'll be your huckleberry" line.

I think he great in all of them (except Batman). Tombstone though was by far my favorite, he was brilliant in that role.

"I'll be your Huckleberry" is still my favorite movie line ever.

Is the question "What's the best movie Kilmer's ever been in?" or "What movie's had Kilmer's best performance?"

'Cause Heat's my favorite of those movies, but while he's quite good in it, he doesn't really get to shine. Tombstone's probably his most memorable performance.

No reason to overthink it. Go with your gut. :)

In that case I'm going with Willow. It's a pretty derivative flick, but Madmartigan was da man. In a better movie, he could've been a definitive Han Solo for the fantasy set.

Tombstone by a million billion miles. "I'm your huckleberry." "You're a daisy if you do." "Wyatt, I am rolling." And plenty of other great lines and baddassery.

Love Madmartigan. So many pieces of that movie were great, it's such a shame.

Johnny Ringo: My fight's not with you, Holliday.
Doc Holliday: I beg to differ, sir. We started a game we never got to finish. "Play for Blood," remember?
Johnny Ringo: Oh that. I was just foolin' about.
Doc Holliday: I wasn't.

"Was it a dream where you see yourself standing in sort of sun-god robes on a pyramid with a thousand naked women screaming and throwing little pickles at you?"

This is one of my all time favorite movie quotes. Most people just look at me strangely and try to avoid direct eye contact when I say it.. which is often.

Also "Can you hammer a six-inch spike through a board with your penis?"

I agree with this 100%, but there's a big difference between a very good movie, and "my favorite Val Kilmer" movie. ;)

Tombstone is his best movie. However Madmardigan is probably his best character. Top secret is pretty funny too. I love the perception gags.

I went with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang over Heat because he was really just a bit player in Heat. Wasn't technically a "Val Kilmer" movie.

I have had a serious crush on the man since seeing Willow as a child. So I will need to go with Willow.

All of his movies are fantastic. He should be Hank Pym, dammit.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, with Tombstone as a very close second.

Kind of surprised 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang' is so popular. It was a great movie but it flopped in the box office. It only made 4 million domestic.

Did it have a big DVD showing or is it just popular in nerd circles?

I went Top Gun, but probably should have done Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Love Tombstone and Heat too, and his Batman used to be my favourite of the movies.

This was a little tough but in the end "Tombstone" is my favorite western of all time and I to this day recite Kilmer's lines as Doc Holliday. Fantastic film, incredible performance, and great quotes.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was a close second though.

Yeah I think that's his best overall movie.

But I believe he gave his best performance in The Doors.

Kilmer had transformed in every way into Jim Morrison.

Even the surviving Doors members have said that they thought Kilmer was dead-on perfect.

Tombstone, easy - even though I haven't seen a few of those (including Kiss Kiss Bang Bang). Tombstone was the one in which it became clear to me how thoroughly great Kilmer could be.

Top Secret would be close, though.

Nerd circles.

I remember a year or two back it started getting a good deal of buzz on this board, and I've seen it percolating ever since.
