Totally with that top ten. 1,2,4,6 would be in my top 20-30 I think.

Someone mentioned movies people can't pass when they see them on... Ghostbusters, Caddy Shack, Road House, Top Gun... they on and I notice I stop and watch.

Ha, Road House or Top Gun on? I'm in.

I think I've watched Road House 100 times. It isn't a cinematic great work of art. Nor is it really artistic or supposedly worthwhile, but, I flip the channel to Road House it probably won't move again.

And to be dead honest, when The Godfather is on.., I'd rather watch Road House.

That is what is known as a "guilty pleasure." It doesn't matter if you catch 5 minutes or 45 minutes of it, it is worth the time.

The Pope of Greenwich Village is one of my favorites.

Eric Roberts was awesome in that.

Network is a favorite of mine, still a timely subject ( and provides the motto for PA off topic in I'm as Mad as Hell and will post it). Chayevsky also did the iconic film Marty- Ernie MFin Borgnine in a great against type role.

I saw LA a while ago and know I liked it, have to see it again though as I barely remember. Memento was great. Never saw your 4 and 5s.

The good bad and ugly is fantastic and maybe my favorite western but it is technically Italian. Recently saw Leone's pocketfull of dynamite aka duck you suckers and it is a joy as well.

Winchester 73 was a real good American western. John Ford could have a half a dozen in a top 15 best American westerns.
