    Certainly doesn't seem to be a "Rolling Stone" list that has you completely scratching your head. Decent picks.

    Interesting that they had Citizen Kane as the top movie of all time about 10 years ago, but not on this list at all - guess it doesn't fit in any of those categories.

    The Magnificent Seven should be on the Westerns list.

    Also, to revisit a comment I made in the sports movie quotes thread in the sports forum, Bull Durham is a chick flick disguised as a sports movie. Jerry Maguire is as well.

    As long as the list has LOTR, Blade Runner and Terminator mentioned, I'm happy

    yeah, although my 10 lists would probably be different, the one thing I thought of when I read through was boot "Jerry Maguire" in favour of "Slap Shot" or the original "Bad News Bears"

    And on further review, "Clockwork Orange" bye-bye (science fiction?), hello "Close Encounters". And "King Kong" fantasy? Whose would that be?!? (not that it shouldn't be somewhere on there, but as mentioned there is no horror, so I guess fantasy is where it's at). And who knew that there were even 10 "courtroom dramas"?

    I'm suprised to see "Reds" listed. I remember my parents dragging me and my brother to see that multi-hour epic at the theater when I was 9 or 10 years old. I think I fell asleep about halfway through.

    Not a bad list, but I might have swapped Bull Durham in the sports category for Million Dollar Baby or Friday Night Lights. Everything else seems pretty fair, but like the OP, I wonder where the horror list went.
    HERE AND GONE by Haylen Beck (Stuart Neville writing as...) - "It doesn't get better than this." - Lee Child, "Highly recommended." - Harlan Coben, "Cancel all your plans and settle in for the ride." - Ruth Ware, "This is a book that lives up to the buzz." - Alafair Burke

    too bad they dont have a category for raiders of the lost ark.
    It is not an understatement to say that if a person ate a bowl of alphabet soup, they would shit better lyrics. -lmr5150 on Up For Breakfast

    A recent study shows 92% of the teenage population likes rap music. If you are part of the 8% who listen to real music, put this as your sig.

    I consider back to the Future as more fantasy than sci fi, and a better choice than Big

    Close Encounters should certainly be on that sci fi list instead

    Romantic Comedy? Sleepless?....I liked it but one of the 10 best? I think even You've Got Mail (or the original Shop Around the Corner) was better

    and Epics...Titanic....ugh...very successful but better than Dr Zhivago? Magnificent Ambersons or Citizen Kane?

    Sports..Bad News Bears or Slapshot yes...National Velvet? NO What about Seabisquit instead?

    Sure there's no horror list, but there's also no musical list...a woefully unappreciated category by AFI and the Academy
