List your top 10 movies


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I was talking with some friends and somehow the topic of favorite movies came up.  I wonder what your top 10 movies are in the following categories:  Westerns,  Action/Adventure, War/Historical based, Drama, Comedies, SciFi.

 

You can list your top 10 in any or all categories, or just talk about one specific movie.

 

Maybe we can all agree on the greatest movie ever.  And it is not Caddy Shack.  Although that is a good one.

 

If you think we need another category by all means help yourself.  Let's see where this thread goes.

I can't watch tin cup anymore because the day after I watched it, I was in a tournament, and I was even going into 18, and then I hit one out of bounds with my driver, and then I hit my driver again in the wrong fairway, and made an 8 on a par 4.

First, foremost and most significantly who says its not Caddyshack?  That's for the voters to decide. :)

 

In order - that's really tough but I'll try based on the ones I'll always watch if I see them come up (and yes my age will show with this list):

 

1.  Casablanca

 

2.  The Godfather (part I)

 

3.  Animal Crackers (I'm a huge Marx brother fan so could almost put theirs first and move on)

 

4.  On the Waterfront

 

5.  Field of Dreams (In a former life I was a baseball fan and I love my Dad)

 

6.  Saving Private Ryan

 

7.  We were Soldiers

 

8.  Schindler's List

 

9.  Play it again Sam (Had to have something by Woody Allen in the mix)

 

10. Caddyshack

 

 

 

Honorable mentions

 

Mr. Majestic (love Charles Bronson so this is representative)

The Great Escape

Fail Safe

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (I prefer the book is the only reason why it didn't make my top 10)

Hoosiers

Goodfellas

Scarface

Any of the Pink Panther movies

The Odd Couple

He Got Game (Had to get a Spike Lee in there too)

Animal House (come on plus I have a girl whom I went to High School with who was in it and caddyshack)

 

 

There were several others that I saw mentioned that I love but had to limit it to these.  My favorite Vacation movie is Vegas Vacation BTW - its the sleeper of the bunch IMO. 

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

Ah, I forgot Schindler's List, such a great film!

 

 

There were several movies that others mentioned that could have made my list but I already have 21 - for example I do enjoy Reservoir Dogs very much - another one that is in its gendre is Get Shorty.  I know that they don't have universal appeal but I love kids movies particularly the ones that can hit both kids and adults.
