- The Pride of the Yankees
#3 Sports movie
Pretty good movie. Gary Cooper plays Lou Gehrig. Babe Ruth plays Babe Ruth.
- The Public Enemy
#8 Gangster movie
James Cagney pushes a grapefruit into Mae Clarke's face. Great film.
- The Searchers
#96 Top 100 (1998)
#12 Top 100 (2007)
John Wayne looks for his niece. Good film. Not as good as "Stagecoach," but very good film.
- The Shawshank Redemption
#72 Top 100 (2007)
The best film based on the a Stephen King book (and King's best book). Yes, it stars Tim Robbins, but it's a great film anyway. And, yes, Robbins is perfect as Andy.
- The Silence of the Lambs
#65 Top 100 (1998)
#74 Top 100 (2007)
Best Picture (1991)
Third movie to win awards for Picture, Directory, Actor, and Actress. It's good. Very, very good.
- The Sixth Sense
#89 Top 100 (2007)
What a twist!
- The Sound of Music
#55 Top 100 (1998)
#40 Top 100 (2007)
Best Picture (1965)
It's an okay movie with some songs that you know. Those songs are a few of my favorite things.
- The Sting
Best Picture (1973)
Saw this one when it came out. It was teh awesome!
- The Ten Commandments (1956)
Saw this on TV not more than, oh, maybe 20 times. Good film.
- The Thief of Bagdad
Good stunt work, but not all that great of a film.
