In Reply to: RE: Variety top 100 movies of all time, you'll never guess what's no. 1 posted by geoffkait on December 21, 2022 at 06:13:48
I know to each his own, but the following are movies I never tire of:
In no order:
1) The Verdict....Paul Newman as the alcoholic attorney...great acting. James Mason...superb.
2) The Sandpebbles...Steve McQueen's finest. The ending of this still saddens me.
3) Moby Dick (The Peck version)....how in hell is this not a top 100 movie?
4) Seven Days in May.....Fine storyline and very well acted.
5) On the Beach....One of the most depressing movies ever made, with a great cast.
6) Platoon.....the defining movie about Vietnam.
7) Patton....WTF....was George C. Scott not really Patton reincarnated?
8) Wait Until Dark......tense, tense, tense....tell me you didn't yell out.
9) Master and Commander.....Supetb period piece! Breathtaking nautical scenes.
10) Last of the Mohicans....Huh? This was magnificent! Wes Studi as Mowgua...fantastic casting!
I could go on, but those are the first 10 that come to mind.
As for Psycho at No. 1........I saw it at 9 years old on the big screen. Scared the shit out of me....for a long time....now THAT'S a great movie.
