Tools    





The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) - I only saw the LOTR trilogy once, and it was a while ago, so the movies kind of blend together in my mind.
Hero (2002) - Never heard of this movie. (I thought Hero was a movie with Dustin Hoffman, but I guess this is a different movie.)
Casino Royale (2006) - I don't like Daniel Craig as James Bond.
Big Trouble in Little China (1986) - Haven't seen this movie.
The Bourne Supremacy (2004) - I've only seen one movie from the Bourne series, but it wasn't this one.

Honorable Mentions:
Sicario (2015) - This movie was pretty good, but it wasn't on my list.
The Italian Job (1969) - Haven't seen this movie.
Twister (1996) - I love this movie. It's one of my favorite guilty pleasure movies, and it was #15 on my list.


My List:
3. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982)
6. Jurassic Park (1993)
11. The Fugitive (1993)
12. Smokey and the Bandit (1977)
14. GoldenEye (1995)
15. Twister (1996)

You're right, life's too short.
Predictions are best for the top 10 imo. trying to predict 50-46 would be nyon impossible.

Excellent batch! (except for MI4). 300 has some of the most rewatchable action scenes ever put to film, the film itself is OK I guess but the action some of the best ever.



Really don't like Saving Private Ryan at all. Used to like 300 haven't seen it in about 7 years though. Not seen Crouching Tiger, John Wick, MI4 or any of the honourable mentions.



Welcome to the human race...

Funny, if you swap around M:I-GP and 300 then that's pretty much my sentiment.

Also, A Better Tomorrow was my #25.

And there's the third. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon rounds out the 3 martial arts movies in this countdown along with Hero and The Grandmaster I think are entirely undeserving of a spot on the countdown given their offensively bad wire-fu and/or egregious over-emphasis on colorful visuals and bad drama over fight scenes.


Incidentally, Zhang Zyi co-stars in all 3 of them alongside actors who've made much much MUCH better movies.
