Top 5 movies

For poops and giggles, I thought I would list my favorite five movies of all time, not necessarily in any order:

Star Wars - the original
The Sound of Music
Field of Dreams
A Bridge too Far

Are these conservative movies?

My least favorite popular movies of recent memory are:

Lost in Translation

1. The Sound of Music,
2. Doctor Zhivago,
3. Casablanca,
4. Mr Smith Goes To Washington,
5. Manchurian Candidate (original),
6. It's a Wonderful Life,
7. The Fountainhead (much better as a book), and
most of the older Bond movies.

And, the most recent movie I attended, The Incredibles! A conservative movie about the triumph of good over evil.

I just saw "Thank You for Smoking." Excellent and hilarious. Rent it.

In No Particular Order..

Star Wars - The original Trilogy

Nat'l Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Aspen Extreme

Major League (I and II)

Top Gun - when Tom Cruise was still an actor and not in need of high doses of psychotropic medications to control his behavior.

The Charlie Brown Classics (Easter Beagle, Great Pumpkin, and A Charlie Brown Christmas)

This is from someone who vastly prefers music, literature, and well-written television series over contemporary movies, who didn't grow up watching classic movies, and can only rate them on personal entertainment value:
2)Star Wars (the original)
3)The Blues Brothers
4)Monty Python and the Holy Grail
5)Major League 1
6)Tin Men
7)The Survivors
9)The Late Shift
10)The Delta Force

Notice that there are no movies from the past couple years on this list, because none of these movies are appropriate for infants or toddlers, and I don't value movies enough to squander babysitting hours on them (as opposed to JAS functions, of course).
