Worm Wrote:hey Hooch I am all for it, how will we do this? everyone does their top 10 in the 10 categories then majority rules and we post it up on the site?

Should we do a War category and make it 11 categories or just stick with the AFI guidelines?

We could just make our own 10 categories....fuck courtroom dramas.

We can do it however... even if we all just discuss it in a dedicated thread for each category. Or we can do the vote thing.

However we decide, I can put a link to it up in the nav bar. We can change it at will too.

Worm Wrote:Okay, it's the American Film Institute, which means lots of Meryl Streep, James Cagney and Alfred Hitchcock, but man did they fuck up a few times. First off, where the fuck is the WAR Category? You have a COURTROOM DRAMA Category, but no War? I mean what the fuck is that about? I can name the winners right now, in no particular order:

Saving Private Ryan, Patton, Platoon, All Quiet on the Western Front, The Bridge on the River Kwai, Apocalypse Now, Full Metal Jacket, The Longest Day, Das Boot and the Deer Hunter.

Hell I could name 5 more if i wanted to. Sure SPR and All Quiet made it into the Epics, but where the fuck is Braveheart in the epics? Does anyone actually think Ti-Fuckin-tanic is a better epic than BRAVEHEART? Braveheart is the Definition of Epic!And what the hell is Groundhog Day doing in the top 10 fantasy films, yet there is no Willow, no LOTR Two Towers or Return of the King....fuck that. Batman, Superman, Iron Man, Spiderman, any man? Indiana Jones franchise? Anyone? Anyone in there?

Once again AFI, you suck balls.

Ha ha! Dude that's fucking funny and you're sooo right. I watched some of the AFI thing and saw Groundhog Day and was like WTF?! I can't believe there is no War catagory. ALSO, I've never seen Braveheart or The Deer Hunter. Are they available on Blu-Ray?

We should just pick a category and go to town. Somebody start a dedicated thread, pick a category (and the rules) and we'll all start rattling off the best flicks.

OK, I'll start... Chick Flicks - Steel Magnolias, Driving Miss Daisy, and The English Patient.

Goodfellas was actually number 2. Courtroom Dramas? How the fuck is that even a category over Action/Adventure?

Hey, there are some very good courtroom dramas that could easily make a list of top 10 in it's own category:

In no order:
To Kill A Mockingbird
A Few Good Men
12 Angry Men
A Time To Kill
The Rainmaker

and that was just off the top of my head with no real thought put into it.

It just seemed like a somewhat random, very specific genre for AFI to select. I haven't really seen many movies that'd fit the category.
