#1 - Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
20 Tied for #2
Wow, a lot of movies off the top of my head - not necessarily in this order but-
The Green Mile
Dances with Wolves
Last of the Dogmen
What Lies Beneath
Sorry that was 11 movies, couldn't keep it to 10. LOL.
My favorite COMEDY movies I put in a different top 10 as I can't compare them with drama or action movies - for me they have their own category - my favorite comedies not necessarily in this order are :
2. Blazing Saddles
3. The Cable Guy
4. Dumb & Dumber
5. Life of Brian
6. The Princess Bride
7. What About Bob
8. Young Frankenstein
9. Meet the Parents
10. High Fidelity
So that's a close synopsis of my list give or take. LOL. Peace out, Mr. Flipper
Lone Wolf and Child (the series)
Zatoichi (the whole series)
From here to Eternity
To Kill a Mokingbird
Gone with the Wind
The Wild Geese
The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, The Return of the King
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Desolation of Smaug (I'm excluding the Battle of the Five Armies)
Spider-man 1 & 2 (not 3!)
Batman Begins, the Dark Knight, the Dark Knight Rises
The Winter Soldier
Star Trek: First Contact
Thanks Flipper and everyone else! Lots of great movies.
Yes, I think Jaws was a fantastic movie, too!
There's obviously no right or wrong answer here.
If you like a movie, say it (and maybe why you think it's great).
Sorry that was 11 movies, couldn't keep it to 10. LOL - well, that's still pretty good going.
I find I can do a good top ten of something (fav films, fav horror movies, fav comedies) but anything more is too much. The other day, I tried to work out my fav top 30 horror films, and I had great difficulty. I love the horror genre but it was difficult. Some of the films I was naming would fit into a top 100 (although I don't think I know 100 horror films, let alone have seen them!). In the end, I had to settle for my fav top 15 horror films.
As far as comedies go, I like Red Dwarf, The Office and Extras (last two by Ricky Gervais). Not feature films but pretty darn good.
Keep em coming, guys, all replies welcome!
Best: Sixth Sense; Pride and Prejudice; Sense and Sensibility
Worst: Lady in the Water; The Village; Signs
I loved Sixth Sense. But then I loved Signs. I thought the Village wasn't bad.
But Lady in the Water is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Shylaman lost me after that.
butch cassidy and the sundance kid
the magnificent 7.
Best western ever made, Shane (Alan Ladd).. "Come back Shane".
