Best movies? Again?

No, I'm not going to bore you with another series of posts about the best movies.

Rather, John Hawkins at Right Wing News, did a poll of conservative bloggers. I participated. They weren't ranked submissions, simply a top ten list, with each entry being one vote.

Anyway, here is the post of the results.

Of the ten movies I submitted, six were in the top twenty results:
  • Casablanca (1942)
  • The Godfather (1972)
  • The Godfather Part II (1974)
  • Patton (1969)
  • The Princess Bride(1987)
  • Star Wars (1977)
So, since you asked -- that was you asking, right? -- what were the other movies I suggested?
  • The General (1927)
  • The Magnificent Seven (1960)
  • Stagecoach (1939)
  • The Wizard of Oz (1939)
There was one movie from 1939 on Hawkins' list -- and yes, you know that film (read the poll) -- although I submitted two other films from 1939. And that was the oldest film on Hawkins' list. I offered one silent film: The General DVD Blu-Ray. It's a classic. And, if you can sit down and watch it, you'll love it. That's why it's my second-favorite movie of all time.

Oh, the IMAO crew (Frank J, SarahK, and Harvey) also participated in the poll.


  1. Animal House was the only one of mine on the final list. Dude, y'all conservatives SUCK at picking movies and are just so very wrong.

  2. Name one -- just one! -- of the movies on my list that isn't awesome. I dare you to find one.

  3. The fact that The Godfather was number one on the list at Hawkins place disappointed me no end. Dang, that is not even in my top 50. I think that even Scarface is better and I hate violence in movies.

    Okay, I am weird.

  4. Of the 10 I submitted, the two Godfather movies are the ones I saw after I had seen all the others. So, they are the most recent additions to my list.

    But, take those out. I still have Magnificent Seven, Stagecoach (1939), The General...

    If you don't like those, then, yes, you are weird.
