The "Best" Movies: Recap, part 21

I'm giving a rundown of the "best" movies (details about the list are here). I've done 200 so far. Now, another 10:
  • The Third Man Blu-Ray
    #57 Top 100 (1998)
    #5 Mystery
    Good film. Oh, and the theme is my standard ringtone on my BlackBerry.
  • The Treasure of the Sierra Madre Blu-Ray
    #30 Top 100 (1998)
    #38 Top 100 (2007)
    Good movie. This is the one that does NOT contain the line, "We don't need no stinking badges." It's actually, "Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges! I don't have to show you any stinkin' badges!"
  • The Usual Suspects Blu-Ray
    #10 Mystery
    Great film with a great twist.
  • The Verdict Blu-Ray
    #4 Courtroom drama
    Good Paul Newman vehicle. Worth a watch.
  • The Wild Bunch Blu-Ray
    #80 Top 100 (1998)
    #79 Top 100 (2007)
    #6 Western
    An okay western. Very good in places.
  • The Wizard of Oz Blu-Ray
    #6 Top 100 (1998)
    #10 Top 100 (2007)
    #1 Fantasy
    Well, bust my buttons! Nobody should miss this movie. Not nobody, not no how.
  • Titanic Blu-Ray
    #83 Top 100 (2007)
    #6 Epics
    Best Picture (1997)
    Okay, I admit, it was a pretty good film. My favorite part? When Leonardo DiCaprio sank.
  • To Kill a Mockingbird
    #34 Top 100 (1998)
    #25 Top 100 (2007)
    #1 Courtroom drama
    It was a good film. I just didn't think it was as great as everyone else seems to think.
  • Tom Jones
    Best Picture (1963)
    So-so film. It creeped me out when Tom seduced Mrs. Waters, who was played by the actress who played his mother in an earlier scene. The twist at the end is related to this. Still, creeped me the heck out.
  • Tootsie
    #62 Top 100 (1998)
    #69 Top 100 (2007)
    Decent film. And one of the few movies with a lesbian kiss scene involving a man and a woman.
Only 12 more to go. Those are coming up soon.
