They've been quieter today, but the few I've seen are still doing that Sekrit Code thing with their tails. I'm not letting my guard down yet.

List is the IMDb top 100. FYI. :)

We have rather similar taste, don't we?

*g* I'm rather ashamed that I have never seen Raiders of the Lost Ark. *hangs head*

I've seen 46 of 'em, including the top 7. Changes I'd make:

"Star Wars", number one. No question.

"LA Confidential" somewhere in the top ten. THE most brilliant noir film (better than "Double Indemnity? Yes!) with incredible performances by every actor in it.

"Patton" in the top twenty. (I don't think I saw it in the list at all - or did I miss it?)

Bump "The Manchurian Candidate" right outta there. I've tried to watch it 3 or 4 times and I can't get thru it. And while we're at it, let's get "Seven" out of there too.

"Gone With the Wind" not on the list??? Hello???

"Shawshank Redemption" number two? It was a great flick, but not number two of all time. Let's slide "LOTR, Return of the King" in there followed by "Dr. Strangelove".

"Raiders of the Lost Ark" in the top ten.

Movie on the list I'm most ashamed I haven't seen: (tie) "Lawrence of Arabia", "Blade Runner" and "Chinatown".

There are more, but that's enough. :) And Kel, get thee to a video store & rent "Raiders"! Shame on you!

I can borrow Raiders from a friend who owns it. It's not that I don't want to, I just never have. *sigh* Soon, devotchka, soon.
