Wow, a lot of good movies on there-of course! Ok, the animated ones are definately classics. But I was never a big fan of any of them. Pinocchio DEFINATELY freaked me out when I was little. (The donkey thing) And hello! Where is Scarface on best gangster movie?? Other than that I need to brush up on my old movies!

I must be a loser in the movie category becuase the only few that I have seen are the animated ones. Maybe one or two others, but thats it. Looks like I should spend my summer watching movies and get caught up with the rest of the world.

hmmmmm very interesting..... There are a few movies on there I havent even heard of. haha A little disappointed that Unforgiven was #4. That is one of my dad's favorite westerns. But he also likes the searchers so I guess its all good! haha
