Besides The Searchers, John Wayne's, The Man Who Liberty Valence was a terrific movie, if you like westerns. It co-starred Jack Palance as Liberty and Jimmy Stewart as "Pilgrim". Down the list was Strother Martin as Liberty's personal suck-up, gave the movie a little comedy.

John Wayne was at his peak, then, and the twist near the end made it truly a remarkable film.

I wonder if America is somewhat alone in turning out movies which have no redeeming value whatsoever. I'm including just about everthing Adam Sandler has been in and all those vapid remakes like Dukes of Hazzard. They are a complete waste time, yet I'm sure they all made lots of money.

I guess, Patty, you can call Spears a woman since she's had two children but calling her a girl would allow her some her leeway for absolute ignorance.

I agree, George---they are really poor films.

I totally agree with you about Sandler's films, George. They've made "Dukes of Hazzard" movies??!!! Thank God I've missed them!

Films made for money will always have little or no redeeming value since the money men (and I have known more than a few) don't give a damn about quality or content so, since most American and Indian films (the bulk of the movies made in the world) are made for money, most of them are absolute drek. Maybe we should set up a Hollywood vs Bollywood competition for which are the worst.

Speaking of Bollywood I had a wonderful time with a film called Malaan: Once Upon a Time in India. I rented it through Blockbuster's on-line service. It is 4 hours long, so I had to watch it in pieces. Without going into it, the movie had blood, high drama, sports, beautiful women, handsome men, funny characters, and lots of singing and dancing. It is a "total package". I found a review of it by Gene Siskel, which I found informative. The film was made for average to poor Indians, who don't get out to the movies very often. Therefore, when they go, they want a complete movie experience which will satisfy for months. The acting is very adequate and the production values are first class.

- Castaway, megawd the ball acts MILES better than Tom ....s
- Saving Private Ryan, just absurd
- Apollo 13 (I start seeing a pattern)
- Brokeback Mountain (Jake Gyllenhaal [sp?] is good, but he's the only one in that movie who can act)
- Sliver
- Indecent Proposal
- all the John Rambo movies
- Blood Simple (and I LOVE the Coens!)

Well put.

I'm finding it interesting that this thread is getting more responses than the TOP TEN films thread. Maybe the rememberence of being ripped off at the theatre is more powerful than the rememberence of feeling good?

Miss-M - I haven't seen The Producers yet.

As for The Exorcist, I have never been able to sit through the whole thing. I hate scary movies! They give me nightmares. Literally.

After watching Jaws for the first time as a kid, I couldn't go to sleep without a light on for a week. I saw Alien in my 20s and scared the jeepers out of my boyfriend that night because I woke up screaming from a nightmare.
