Kenny, don't paint your sister.
I, hereby, eh-hem, proclaim this list to be the seventy five best thrillers and mysteries I have watched thus far!

***
Like my Top 100 list, this one is my personal favorites and it's not neccessarily so much about quality as to how much I enjoyed them. Instead of a quickie-review, I'm going to popcorn rate them on:

~Dialouge (mostly comedy, laughs, and just generally good script.)

~Suspense (plot, storyline, and thrill. Movies with a shocking twist at the end get bonus points)

~Quality (cast, direction, style)

~How much I enjoyed the film Overall (I will say that I am biased--I.E. I will never put a Nic Cage movie in front of Bruce Willis. Just will not happen)

For example, Eye of the Killer's mystery is very predictable but I enjoyed the characters and the dialouge-hence the higher rating then The Hunt for Red October.

Could a mod please correct two 2 typos in the title, please? Much appreciated! I shouldn't be allowed to type when I'm sleepy.

Should read: 75 Sovereign Shockers (CQ's Top Thrills).

The Negotiator and Hunt For Red October are excellent movies.

The Negotiator is a very underrated movie. Jackson and Spacey were phenominal in it.

And the Hunt For Red October is just classic suspense and one of the best thrillers.

I think The Negotiator is a very high quality movie for it being so little known. I just felt that toward the end it got a little...messy and I got kinda lost. Still, excellent watch.

Connery is my favorite part of Red October



Keep on Rockin in the Free World
I fell asleep to the postman twice, but Shooter is a fun flick. like a glossy 70's thriller.
