I like the ones that have John Wayne in them...


But wait...


That's not all...


I also like the ones with Tom Selleck, Sam Elliott, Ben Johnson, Gene Autry, Randolph Scott, Roy Rogers...

In case you haven't figured it out yet, I like westerns. Preferably the older ones that aren't polluted with foul language that adds nothing to the movie.

Some of my favorites are The Alamo, Red River, Quigley Down Under, McClintock, Kansas Pacific, The Undefeated, The Searchers, The Train Robbers, Big Jake, Chisum, Monte Walsh, El Dorado, Stagecoach, Crossfire Trail, The Sacketts...

I also like some of the good war movies, several of which have John Wayne in them, too: Midway, Saving Private Ryan, The Sea Chase, Sands of Iwo Jima, Flying Tigers...

Then there are the good action movies: McQ, The Hunt for Red October, Indiana Jones (all three), Patriot Games, The Fugitive, Air Force One, The High and the Mighty, Island in the Sky, Hellfighters...

For a good drama, there are: Castaway, Forrest Gump, Ben Hur, The Ten Commandments, Seabiscuit, Radio, Back to the Future, Pay it Forward...

Then there are the comedies: Airplane, Grumpy Old Men, Vacation, Planes Trains and Automobiles, The Quiet Man, O' Brother Where Art Thou, Raising Arizona...

WOW, I can't believe you have even heard of The Russians Are Coming and Its a Mad Mad Mad World, I loved them both...
I can't remember the name but it was recently remade with Michael Douglas, the original had the guy who played a detective with the white bird, he dragged his daughters future Father in law who was a milk toast dentist into all kinds of foreign intrigue, I was in pain from laughing once that movie was over...

Default Mobsters

I absolutely loved The Godfather 1 11 and 111.....Casino
Goodfellas know the words to each scene. Anything to do with mobsters
there was another one with James Wood, In America, or America, America
something like that.

I like some comedies too, Chevy Chase movies, Home Alone, Big Momma

Movies from the 40's........real stories, very little curse words, sex, violence

I know it is cliche to say, but The Godfather really is the best movie ever made.

Young Frankenstein is the funniest movie ever made, and I'll fight anyone who says different. A Fish Called Wanda is the second-funniest movie ever made. Don't call me stupid.

STAR WARS. Awesome. I never get tired of watching it. I'm a crotchety, grumpy, get-off-my-lawn know-it-all, and that scene where Luke goes out to watch the suns set still makes me cry.

Terminator 1 & 2 are great science fiction. Let us all now join in chant: "Terminator 3 did not happen. Terminator 3 did not happen."

ALIEN and ALIENS...great flicks. After that, the series nose-dived.

THE ABYSS. Also great sci-fi.

Bladerunner may be the best science-fiction film ever made. Best way to watch it: On a cold snowy night, house lights off, Christmas lights on.

The Man With No Name films -- A Fistful of Dollars, For A Few Dollars More, and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. The latter is the best Western ever made. Honorable mention to The Outlaw Josey Wales, Tombstone, Pale Rider, High Plains Drifter, and The Magnificent Seven.

Best adventure flicks: Raiders of the Lost Ark. Hands down winner. No contest. Other great adventure flicks KING KONG, Die Hard, Die Hard 3, JAWS, and The Fugitive.

Best animated films: The Incredibles, THE IRON GIANT, Finding Nemo, TOY STORY 1 & 2, and oh heck while we're at it, pretty much anything Brad Bird has ever done. The man is a genius.
