I'm Sure You'll All Agree

Well, all of you except Jeff Meyerson, who's going to disagree about #11.

Actually there are a few films I watch once a year whether I need to or not: HI-LIFE at Christmas, REPEAT PERFORMANCE and CHIMES AT MIDNIGHT for New Year's, RIDE LONESOME and HAMLET......

Jeffrey Meyerson said...

You got that right. Also, I've never seen either of the #19 choices, so can't comment. And there are others where one viewing was more than enough - PRETTY WOMAN, for example. I'd have CASABLANCA at #1, and would include a number of other titles not even on this list:

ANIMAL HOUSE
GROUNDHOG DAY (obviously)
WHEN HARRY MET SALLY
TWO FOR THE ROAD
CHARADE
THE MALTESE FALCON (1941)
STAGECOACH (1939)
RIO BRAVO
THE SONS OF KATIE ELDER
SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SHERIFF
BLAZING SADDLES


You get the idea.

Any list that has RIO BRAVO on it is a good list.

Deb said...

Jaws, Animal House, Close Encounters, Moonstruck, Soapdish. When I encounter any of these movies while channel-surfing, I watch it till the end.

My husband has watched all the Clint Eastwood spaghetti western multiple times.

Jeffrey Meyerson said...

Jackie will watch INDEPENDENCE DAY repeatedly, and has.

The Adventures of Robin Hood - 1938. I'm still angry that it wasn't on the AFI list of 100 greatest movies of all-time.

Also, Jeff is right about Forrest Gump. I blame that movie for the rise of Donald Trump. It honors stupidity.

THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD is one of my all-time favorites. So Gump = Trump?

Yep. Except Gump is a better person

Jerry House said...

Not my list by any stretch of the imagination. Not only is CASABLANCA not anywhere near the the top of the list, but it's behind the terrible PRETTY WOMAN. THE NOTEBOOK? Give me a break! And I assume THE AVENGERS refers to the "We have a Hulk" movie and not the Steed and Peel mess.

Jeff's list is closer to the mark. RIO BRAVO, certainly. What about THE AFRICAN QUEEN, BRINGING UP BABY, BAD DAY AT BLACKROCK, or Tod Browning's DRACULA?

Personally, I never pass up a chance to watch PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK, BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, A NIGHT AT THE OPERA, or the original KING KONG.

Jeffrey Meyerson said...

ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD is on my list too.

Don Coffin said...

That's an OK list, I suppose, but only 2 (Star Wars and Casablanca) of them would be on mine. Without trying too hard...

They Might Be Giants
The Big Sleep
Miracle on 34th Street (the original, not the remake)
The Philadelphia Story
The Graduate
Five Easy Pieces
Animal Crackers
The Adventures of Robin Hood
The Return of the Seacaucus Seven (my substitute for The Big Chill)
The Big Fix
Three Days of the Condor

I'd have to start thinking hard (and looking at our DVDs) to go on from here.

I would not have included Sound of Music, Grease, Pretty Woman, Grease, Forrest Gump, Star Trek, The Avengers or Dirty Dancing.

Would have included The Big Lebowski, The Wild Bunch, African Queen, The 400 Blows, Casino, The Good the Bad & The Ugly, The Seven Samurai, Bladerunner for sure.

Guess I'm the only person on the planet that doesn't like Rio Bravo. Ricky Nelson can't act and Dean Martin looks out of place in a Western.

Bill Crider said...

You are not alone, Steve. Brian Garfield hates RIO BRAVO.

Cap'n Bob said...

She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, Stagecoach, The Quiet Man, Sands of Iwo Jima, and The Shootist--and those are just the John Wayne movies. I'd add Dirty Harry, Shane, The Searchers, and a number of the ones already suggested.

I prefer Cap'n Bob's list by far.
