Thanks for the reply.

I’ll borrow Cain Mutiny, Pulp Fiction and the Ten Commandments for my favorites list.

Heat of the Night and Cool Hand Luke for my least favorite list.

I can’t take phony Southern accents. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is the all time worst in that category.

Favorite: Boogie Nights
Unfavorite: The Ten Commandments

When I think of ‘favorite’ movies, I think of movies that I’d drop what I was doing and watch any time they’re on TV.
On that list:
Forrest Gump
Coming to America
The Best Years of Our Lives
Inglourious Basterds
Big Trouble in Little China
Field of Dreams
O Brother , Where Art Thou?
That Thing You Do (little known movie about a 60s local rock band written and directed by Tom Hanks)
and I’ll steal Grapes of Wrath from Scratch.

Really do not like Dirty Dancing, Ghost

I’ll steal Tombstone from you.

And I’ll steal Come Back Little Sheba from you. Heartbreaking, with great performances by Shirley Booth and Burt Lancaster. To think a generation only knew her as Hazel.

Speaking of Burt, I’m adding Field of Dreams to favorites.


It’s A Mad Mad Mad Mad World
Rear Window
Godfather Part 1 and 2
2001: A Space Odyssey
Forbidden Planet
Dr. Strangelove
The Apartment
The Treasure of the Sierra Madre
12 Monkeys
The Maltese Falcon

Least favorites:

Any/all of the On The Road movies with Hope and Crosby

Good list.

There are good westerns and good sci if movies. I disagreed with dismissing entire genres.

Lol, I’m sure there are. I just haven’t found them? I really can not think of a western that I like. Not even anything with Robert Redford, who makes almost anything watchable, for me.


The Big Lebowski (and every other Coen Brothers film, except The Ladykillers)
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Children of Men
Grosse Pointe Blank
The Night of the Hunter
Out of the Past
Touch of Evil
The Lady Vanishes
Double Indemnity
Before Sunrise
The Dark Knight

Least/Most Overrated:

Breaking the Waves (and every other Lars von Trier film)
The Hangover (and every other Todd Philips film)
Every Michael Bay film, except Bad Boys and Pain & Gain.

Jeremiah Johnson is a really good western, so is Shane and Stagecoach. Also, I would add the Shootist and Dances With Wolves to that list.

Vertigo is really good!

Oh I’m not saying they aren’t good movies. I just don’t like westerns or science fiction. Or movies about the mafia. Or anything that’s going to make me sad. :man_shrugging:

Fair enough.

When it comes to westerns I recommend The Terror of Tiny Town.

All this talk of westerns reminded me to add Logan to my list - it’s a comic book movie, but it feels like a western.

I like Double Indemnity, but it just cracks me up the way Fred MacMurray says “baby”.
