Rules: Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen films that you have seen that will always stick with you. Tag some friends (15 if you like), including me, because I’m interested in seeing what my friends choose.
1. Star Wars (original Trilogy)
2. The Wall
3. Close Encounters
4. American Beauty
5. The Muppet Movie
6. Raiders of the Lost Ark + Indiana Jones and the Holy Grail
8. Taxi Driver
10. Back to the Future
11. Smokey and the Bandit
13. Canadian Bacon
14. A Clockwork Orange
Honorable mention: Kubrick’s two other masterpieces, “2001” and “Dr. Strangelove” and “Wings of Desire.”
Jim R. Tompkins Good list Peter. Thanks for listing Thunderheart-one my favs that I should have listed. Of course Star Wars and Indy movies. Parts of The Wall reminded me of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis. Also what’s with Tarantino’s Wings of Desire? Plaigerism gets you in trouble!
Jim R. Tompkins Love Beyond Thunderdome!
