Not the 27 I'd come up with.JTD
Jurassic Park, Pulp Fiction, Mad Max Fury Road and Amelie are the only ones I would pick. A lot of bad movies on here:A Knights Tale, Princess Diaries,Forrest Gump, 10 Things,Ever After.Where's Shawshank, Good the Bad & the Ugly or The Big Lebowski, Casablanca?These lists are always subjective but this one is pretty lame and mostly post 2000.
I agree, and I hope Jeff Meyerson's head doesn't explode if he reads the list and sees Gump on it.
As usual, I find Steve's opinions almost diametrically opposed to mine. But we do agree (as Bill predicted) on Forrest Gump. I couldn't watch the new Mad Max movie once, and Amelie was way too cutesy for me. And naturally, Buzzfeed readers are way younger than me. 10 Things I Hate About You? Make me watch it, I dare you.Of this list, the ones we do rewatch (some regularly, some occasionally) are:When Harry Met Sally... (on New Year's Eve)The Princess BrideLove Actually (on or around Christmas)There are a few others I liked enough that I could sit through them again, but generally don't. Some others we do rewatch:CasablancaTwo for the RoadGroundhog DayIndependence Day (this and the next because they are favorites of Jackie's, not mine)The Day After TomorrowNational Lampoon's Animal House1776 (on July 4, duh)It's a GiftThere are others.
Any love for THE REPLACEMENTS? KUFFS?
By coincidence I happened to watch WHEN HARRY MET SALLY for the first timer in years a couple of days ago. Nah, it's OK but essentially it's just a dumbed down Woody Allen movie.I happen to really like 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU, at least most of it. It's downhill once the shrew is tamed, so to speak. "Oh that must be Nigel with the Brie" is a great line.My suggestions:The Ladykillers (1955 original, thank you very much). Or just about any classic Ealing comedy.Duck SoupThe Testament of Dr. MabuseDouble Indemnity
