What are your Top Ten Movies?
I'll make the paradigm simple, 10 movies I liked as a kid and what I think of them now !! In no particular order......
10. LONE WOLF MCQUADE
Now....what can I say ....ITS STILL ROCKS!! Not perfect... but I've learned to let go of some reality with this movie and just enjoy Chuck Norris kickin ass!!
9. THE LORDS OF FLATBUSH
This movie is the reason I wore my collar up on my leather jacket as a young punk!!
Now....I still love this movie. Great actors, great story.....even with a lot of flaws. For me its still a very enjoyable cult classic !!
Rutger Hauer's Wolfgar inspired my Cobra Commanders world domination plans!!
Now..... OMG THIS MOVIE RULES !! STALLONE, RUTGER HAUER, BILLY DEE WILLIAMS!!!! CMON !!!!!
7. UNCOMMON VALOR
Inspired many of my GIJOE's personalities.....
Now......not so good. Comes off as corny and very unrealistic. Time has passed this movie by for me.
6. THE TOY
Yes I know what you are thinking but we had HBO very early and I learned quick how to run cable to my room!!
Now......A CLASSIC!! SO many one liners !!
SOOOOO FUNNY!! STILL QUOTE THIS MOVIE !!!
4. THE HOBBIT
Honestly as a kid....seen it but wasn't a big fan. Too slow, not as violent as I wanted.
Now.......I have really grown to appreciate this movie. Over 30 years I have read this book countless times and I have grown to love this animated movie. Needless to say I cannot WAIT for THE HOBBIT to come out!!
3. STAR TREK II THE WRATH OF KHAN
Watched it as a kid liked it...... but Trek was a bit slow and not exciting.
Now....its like wine that has aged and now the nectar of the Gods for me to drink!! All I have to say is "He put... creatures... in our bodies... to control our minds."
What did you think I was gonna write ??
2. A CHRISTMAS STORY
Liked it as a kid but......
Now.......its EVEN FUNNIER !! Whats not to like ! Christmas in my home wouldn't be the same without this movie !!
