BobLee’s Favorite Movies
Last week Reader “Dick” asked for a List of My Favorite Movies. Like all of us… with way too much discretionary time on our hands these days… he was looking for entertainment suggestions.
I obliged … giving it about ten minutes thought … and in no particular 1st 2nd 3rd order. Just “a bunch of” movies that come to my mind that I have enjoyed over the years.
My Litmus Test is…
“if I am channel-surfing and see that ______ is coming up. I stop to watch it or hit RECORD to watch it later regardless of how many times I’ve seen it.
I stopped counting “# times” a long time ago with Road House and The Green Berets. I’m up to 9/10 with Casino and Clear Present Danger
I am sure I left out one or more of Your Favorites. Thats OK… Your Favorites are every bit as legitimate as My Favorites … so long as your list also includes Road House of course.
Mine is THE Only Favorite Movie List that does NOT includes Shawshank Redemption. What can I say?
A lot of testosterone in this list. “Kid” learned early the term “It’s a Dad-will-like Movie”.
Here It Is.
The Outlaw Josey Wales
A Clear & Present Danger
Life & Times of Judge Roy Bean
Green Berets – (w/ John Wayne)
The Vikings – (w/ Kirk Douglas & Tony Curtis)
Where Eagles Dare
Entrapment – (Heist movie w/ Sean Connery & Catherine Zeta-Jones)
A Field of Dreams
The Bishop’s Wife – (Blondie’s All-Time Favorite Movie)
Last of The Mohicans
Shenandoah – (w/ Jimmy Stewart)
Die Hard – One
Gone With The Wind
Oceans 11 – The Clooney / Pitt version
Lara Croft 1 & 2 – (NOT #3. Different Lara… It was awful!)
The Dirty Dozen
Pretty Woman – HA, surpised you didn’t I!
Paint Your Wagon
Lonesome Dove – (technically a TV mini-series)
O Brother Where Art Thou
Magnificent Seven – (original w/ Yul Brynner)

Delta Force One – (w/ Chuck Norris)
Watership Down – (on Every BobLee’s Favorite Books list)

If you asked for this list a month from now, I might come up with 5-6 more.
Feel free to add your choices to the list... for the common good.
