If you didn't already see this, the video in this other thread might give you a few ideas for your movie lists. Its 100 memorable movie lines, all in 200 seconds. "We're gonna need a bigger boat", lol.

100 Best Movies in 200 Seconds

Field of Dreams
Big Lebowski
Scent of a Woman (though I watched it years ago and I may not have the same opinion now.)

I just watched the Graduate last night. I thought it was very good the first time (I was in Junior High). My new opinion is that it really isn't such a very good movie, except for the music and Ann Bancroft's acting. I guess some things are forever and some, just aren't. I'm sure the movie meant a lot in their generation.

I see so many movies I love, plus I can think of others. This is too much pressure on me to make a list of ten. Lol, I can't do it.

So many good ones named. When in my retro mood I like:

Bogey/Bacall - Key Largo, The Big Sleep, etc

The actors in The Maltese Falcon

William Powell/Myrna Loy in the Thin Man movies.

Gunga Din

The Red Badge of Courage

Edward G Robinson's character in The Ten Comandments. And Soylent Green.

E.T. tickles my funny bones.

heh heh heh - could name way more than ten.
