Jason,

Gee, I like how you turned the TOP 5 list to top 19 - way to edit your list down like everyone else. :T:

Maybe we should have done TOP 5 dramas, Top 5 Comedies, Top 5 Action films, etc...

I €™d say you could categorise "The Princess Bride" and "There's Something about Mary" as chick flicks, I anticipated that you would put "Pretty Women" Janna.

Hey--I gave my top 5 movies and tossed in some Hon. Mentions--- It is hard to break down the best movies without categories, like comedies, westerns, etc.... *nl

There are so many great movies it would be fun to break them down into categories like you suggested!!!

Why's that? Really didn't care for the film....bit too predictable. I'm also not a big Julia Roberts or Richard Gere fan.



Jason,

I know what you mean. When others come out with their list - it's like, oh yea, I forgot about that film. I picked mine from just the fact that I enjoy watching them over and over. My Cousin Vinny was one of the first videos we had at work and just about every patient picked it. We knew all the lines by heart. Even though we saw it everyday, we'd still laugh at the funny parts. That was years ago but whenever it's on TV, I still try to watch.

Janna, My Cousin Vinny is the GREATEST B movie of all time!!!!!! There is none better!!!!

Another cult favorite of mine is Real Genius starring a young Val Kilmer and Hackers staring a beautiful A. Jolie and her 1st hubby Jonny Lee Miller

Both excellent movies.

Sorry Janna--I just can't narrow down to 5 also.



No particular order:

-Godfather I and II

-Apocolypse Now

-The Deer Hunter

-The Pianist

-Jaws

-2001 Space Odyssey

-The Gladiator

-Forrest Gump

-Shawshank Redemption

-Casablanca

-One Flew Over the Coockoo's Nest



Comedies I love but just can't put them in list of "best" as they usually lack overall brialliance in all categories of rating a movie.

Best comedies:

-Animal House

-Caddie Shack

-Something About Mary

-Meet the Parents

-Life of Brian

-Strange Brew

-Slap Shot

-Fast Times At Ridgemont High

-Blazing Saddles

-Vacation

-My Cousin Vinny

-The Big Lebowski

-Ferris Buellers Day Off
