Dave Albert’s List

5-22-12          Dave Albert’s List

Moonship journey man Sun Ra born 1914, Singer / Songwriter Morrissey born 1959; Prepare Yourself For The Moonship Journey.

Top 20 Movies

My criteria for this list is; If a movie is on TV tomorrow how likely am I to watch it (or would have watched it, I might not watch Casablanca again because I’ve seen it so many times.)

So, these are not the best movies, but the ones I enjoy watching.  For example, I did not include Chinatown or Lawrence of Arabia

After choosing the 20, I then tried to rank them by the best movies.

Casablanca
The Sting
Doctor Strangelove
Bridge over the River Kwai
The Lion in Winter
To Kill a Mockingbird
The Manchurian Candidate (old version)
The Maltese Falcon
The Thin Man
Groundhog Day
Raiders of the Lost Ark
A Fist Full of Dollars (Yojimbo – same story)
Duck Soup
Kill Bill 1 & 2
The Princess Bride
Were No Angels (old version)
The Great Race
Big Trouble in Little China
Support Your Local Sheriff
AirPlane

    A good list, heavily weighted towards 60s flicks. All the same, I’m there too, for “The Manchurian Candidate” or “Dr. Strangelove.” And maybe “Big Trouble In Little China,” though I prefer “Buckaroo Banzai” as far as William D. Richter scripts. I remember loving it in the theatre when it came out. My friend Tom and I were really buzzed about it but apparently we were the only ones.

    Here’s my little little list of my 18 favorite movies:
    —-1950s:
    A Face In The Crowd
    A Touch Of Evil <-
    —1960s:
    Dr. Strangelove
    Danger Diabolik
    The President’s Analyst <-
    —1970s:
    Network <-
    —1980s:
    Blade Runner
    Brazil <-
    Buckaroo Banzai
    —1990s:
    Ed Wood
    The Big Lebowski
    Rushmore
    Fargo
    Being John Malkovich <-
    —2000s:
    High Fidelity <-
    Lost In Translation
    Big Fish
    —2010s
    The Guard <-
