Top Movie List

Apparently, there was a poll done among bloggers of their list of the top 15 movies made. And WE weren't invited to participate! Shocking. I had never heard of this blog site (maybe no surprise there), but I have a hunch Stuey (David's Dad) would love it. Anyway, for what it's worth, here are mine (hastily put together and subject to further reflection and revision!; also, the order is not that relevant ... the difference between 2 and 15 is negligible):
1. Citizen Kane
2. The Deer Hunter
3. The Bicycle Thief
4. The Godfather
5. The Searchers
6. Paths to Glory
7. The Grand Illusion
8. Casablanca
9. To Kill a Mockingbird
10. The Third Man
11. The Magnificent Ambersons
12. Rear Window
13. The Four Hundred Blows
14. It's A Wonderful Life/Arsenic and Old Lace
15. Saving Private Ryan/Schindler's List

Yes... I am cheating with 14 and 15. And there are so many other good ones. But check out the list compiled from the bloggers. Me thinks some of them have been sitting in front of the computer too long (like their entire lives?). Star Wars #1??! Lord of the Rings? Braveheart?? They are all great, but come on. Although Raiders of the Lost Ark is amazing... I will concede and I should consider that one!

David... your turn.
