just about anything with John Wayne could easily end up in my top five movies!

in no certain order!

The Shootist, because it was John Wayne's last movie and chronicled his movie career and was fitting movie for his last one before he passed away. an many of the supporting actors did an excellent job as well in this movie.

Bullitt, with Steve McQueen! set the standard for car chase scenes in movies to this day. and of course the green 1967 Ford GT Mustang!

The Magnificent Seven, just one of those classic stories based on the Japanese movie The Seven Samurai. great acting by all and he music score is legendary.

Smokey and the Bandit, just because it's one of those classic car chase movies that became a cult classic, and was done on an extremely low budget and the black Trans Am, need i say more! totally fun movie and really not a bad movie either.

Monte Walsh. very good movie with an excellent story and some amazing scenery. Tom Selleck is perfect as Monte Walsh. i very much enjoyed this movie an the supporting actors were superb as well. showed how the cowboy wa becoming a dying breed. kind of sad in some ways.

runner-ups in no certain order either.

any of the Lonesome Dove series of movies. just great mini-series that were very well done.

LeMans with Steve McQueen. not a huge amount of dialogue, but a great movie if you enjoy racing and realistic action.

Big Jake with John Wayne! another great Duke movie!

The Green Berets with John Wayne again! saw this movie at the drive-in when i was vey young.

The Longest Day, which had a huge cast of top stars at the time. such a great movie about D-Day and it required three director to film it!

some honorable mentions!

Mad Max
The Expendables.

1. Rocky.
2. The Wild Bunch.
3. Braveheart.
4. Gran Torino.
5. Monty Python - Holy Grail.

The Shootist was good but had a mushy ending. It coulda bin a contender.

Fight Club
Boondock Saints
Lord Of The Rings

5. Strategic Air Command. Cheesy story, but great flight scenes.
4. Casablanca. We've all had an Ilsa Lund in our life.
3. The Odd Couple. Felix trying to clear his ears in the diner is still a hoot.
2. Dr. Strangelove. How many movies have a guy riding a nuke?
1. The Godfather. No explanation needed.

Ok since it's really hard to narrow down our movies I'll raise it to 10. My other 5 would be O Brother Where Art Thou?, Black Hawk Down, Band of Brothers, The Pacific, and Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

In no particular order. It is tough limiting it to 5:

A Bridge Too Far
Bridge on the River Kwai
Outlaw Josey Wales
True Grit - both are great

" It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World ", is one of my favorite comedies,
" Tom Horn " with Steve McQueen, for a western, there are far too many good films to be objective, if it's entertaining to me, it's a good film, even though it may not get critical acclaim. A few more,,

" Treasure of the Sierra Madre "
" Shane "
" Harvey "
" King Kong " the original because it scared the crap out of me when I was a little kid, the first time I saw it. I just wish the price of a movie didn't put such a dent in your wallet, especially the concession stand.
