Caity's Top 100.…

→ in

I almost accidentally deleted my list off my pc so decided I'd better post it… even though, with the exception of my top ten… eleven though one hundred are not in any particular order….

And, I will probably be changing out a few along the way as I re-watch a few movies I couldn't decide on and watch I few I've yet to see…. Oh, and yes, I know some of the movies on my list are crap… but I still like 'em…

I am nobody's little weasel.

This is really rolling along, and it's all the more impressive for it. Now, I hope that I'm not interpreted as being sexist (I'm honestly trying not to be, and even more honestly, I don't believe I am), but at the other sites I post at, it's mostly a bunch of guys making lists, ostensibly to somehow remedy some or other. OR maybe, guys just like lists much more than women...

So, anyway, I'm impressed that you are putting up this list, not only all at once, but it's very personal, and no way, I don't see anything bad. I don't see a single film I wouldn't tell my daughter to watch.

OK, I hope I didn't infringe too much on your thread with my anecdotes. Sorry if I did.

Thanks... I'm glad you enjoyed my list.... Josey Wales is my favorite Clint Eastwood... and I adore Chief Dan....

After looking over my list with all the pics, I decided I better not let my shrink see it... he'll have me on "the couch" for a month....

Very Nice list: 2 outta 3 make my top list. I would like to see a more in-depth critque fom you on the top 20 or so.

What can I say?

These lists reveal a lot to me about MoFolks and, as I'm a nosy sod, I can't get enough of them.

I loved this one, especially as there are loads of Westerns on it.

Thanks Caity.
