50 of My Favorite Films to Watch...10-6

     HOLY MOLY!!! We are in the Top 10!!! Okay, get ready to be wowed!

#10  The Bourne Identity

"What is the French word for "stakeout," huh?"

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0258463/

Even though I like finding out who Jason Bourne was before he became Jason Bourne (via Bourne Supremacy), I really like watching how he discovers who he is and what mad Chuck Norris/Jack Bauer skills he has.

#9  The Shawshank Redemption

"Yeah. The funny thing is - on the outside, I was an honest man, straight as an arrow. I had to come to prison to be a crook."

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111161/

There is just something about this movie that is fantastic.  Is it the story?  Is it the soundtrack?  Is it the fact that Morgan Freeman is playing an Irishman named Red?  Yes.

#8  Ocean's 11

"Shane, you've got three pairs. You can't have six cards! You can't have six cards in a five-card game!"

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0240772/

The other two are great, but nothing is better than the first one.

#7  Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

"I suddenly remembered my Charlemagne. Let my armies be the rocks and the trees and the birds in the sky..."

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097576/

This movie is double the historical fiction for me.  World War II era Nazis and looking for the Holy Grail.  Yes, please.

#6  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

"What Russian novel, embraces more than 500 characters, is set in the Napoleotic wars?"

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100758/

Just ask Matt Mahler.


Soon to come...MY TOP 5!!!
