I've been watching all the "best" movies.
I took the AFI's "100 Years, 100 Movies" list from 1998, their updated version from 2007, AFI's "10 Top 10" (their picks for the top 10 movies in 10 categories: Animation, Romantic comedy, Westerns, Sports, Mystery, Fantasy, Science fiction, Gangster, Courtroom dramas, Epics), and the Academy Awards® "Best Picture" winners, and put them all in one big list.
Some films are in more than one list, so the combine listing has 222 films.
I've now seen 150 of them. I have 72 more to go.
I'm telling you, it's hard -- really hard -- to watch some of the crap that has come out of Hollywood over the years.
But, it gives me an idea...
Let's make all the detainees at Guantánamo Bay watch the movies on that list. All of them. Some of them twice.
What would the Hollywood elite say then?
Would they admit their films are torture?
Or would they finally shut up and let us use the tactics necessary to get the information from the terrorists?
