I forgot all about Raiders of the Lost Ark when I made my list. Definitely one of my all time favorites. To fit it into my top 10 list which was in no particular order, Raider's of the Lost Ark would replace ''You Only Live Twice.'

Yeah, agreed.

My problem is that I have too many favorites in both categories.
