Michael’s Lists

It’s only fair that I reply to Tony’s last post with my own lists of best movies ever, and my favorite movies. So, here goes….

Best Movies Ever
10. On The Waterfront: Brando at his best, classic in every since of the word.
9.Saving Private Ryan
8.High Noon: Perfect tension, perfect real time drama, perfect casting. I love Grace Kelly

6.Citizen Kane
5.The Lord of the Rings trilogy
4.The Godfather parts 1 and 2.
3.The Searchers: Greatest Western of all time.
2.Modern Times: Charlie Chaplin at his absolute best.

  2. I'm a little embarrased to say that I haven't seen many of the movies on your "best" list. Next up for me from your list: Casablanca. It's on my dvr, I just haven't gotten around to it.
    I want to see you guys make lists of what I call "train wreck movies" They're movies that no matter how terrible they may be, you have to stop and watch them any time you might flip past them on tv. I have several 🙂

  3. I have to admit that I am a movie Buff in my past but have been extrememly slack the last 6 years with 2 kids (5 & 6) so I am playing catch up on some of these! I have "dropped everything" to watch the Trois Colours. This is right up my alley with my recently found interest in international and indepepndent films the last couple of years!!! 🙂 Great depth. Next will be Modern Times.. I love Charlie!!! 🙂
    HA! I thought i was the only one who liked Gilbert Grape.

    Mean Girls, eehh?

    A few of mine…. French Kiss, A Walk In The Clouds, Fiddler on the Roof, The Trouble With Harry, Life, IQ, and many on everyone else's lists.. i really could go on and on….

  4. so just why are my posts showing up 3 hours off the actual time? Funny. But not haha funny. I mean really! I'm not up at 4:23 am, at least not by choice. I'm too lazy for that! 🙂
