Picture Shows

I read somewhere that people seem to like blog posts that feature lists, so here's one I've been mulling for the last couple of days, my all-time favorite movies. Feel free to discuss/debate in comments, tell your friends, subscribe to our RSS feed, send money, whatever makes you happy.

The Godfather

Scarface

Caddyshack

Animal House

The only movies on your list that I have actually seen are Rain Man and Forrest Gump. How pathetic does that make me?

Who doesn't LOVE caddyshack?! I am a stranger that checks your posts often. It's like a drug-free attitude boost. Thanks for everything!

it is glaringly obvious that you have not seen my favorite movie, "Nobody's Fool", with Paul Newman, and Jessica Tandy. I will overlook that,make some soup, and check back in a few days, to see how the revision shaped up.
