Subject: Irish Mike's Top 50 Movies & HBO Series
I don't like to buy DVDs because just about every thing is available for
down load from the internet. So when I do buy a DVD, it's one I know I'll
watch more than once. I have 152 DVDs in my personal library but many of
them are Irish or Irish-related which I won't bother listing. The following
are my top 50 favorites, listed in alphabetical order. You'll note that
several of them are HBO series and that two (Appaloosa and True Blood) are
not yet available for purchase. I'll buy them as soon as they become
available on DVD. Now I'm not saying these are all great movies, I'm just
saying they're my favorites. If you've got a similar list of favorites, and
don't mind posting, I'd ld like to see it.

The first time I saw Goodfellas, I was floored. I was like... what
the fuck - - I didn't know anyone at the time could make a movie THAT
GOOD. I wanted to cry - I wanted to bust a nut - suddenly, the world
was a beautiful thing.

And what happened? I'll tell you what happened. That same thing that
always happens -- people fucked it up. That year, they gave best
picture to 'Dances With Wolves.'

Are you fucking kidding me!!!?

It was worse than finding out there was no Santa. Worse than walking
in on your mom getting it on with the mailman. This was tragedy of
Epic Proportion... and it still burns me to this very day.

aaaargh.

BTW - you damn well better have Goodfellas on that list. TOP OF THE
LIST pal.

So get a move on that. chop chop.

I'll get right on it boss. Now, speaking of cinema injustice, "Shakespeare
In Love" beats out "Saving Private Ryan"!
Give me a freakin' break. Some voters on the Academy Awards Committee
should have been shot - dead.

where's Goodfellas ? I mean come on, Gangs of New York but not
Goodfellas? Where's your credibility now?

Well, you've got a point. "Good Fellas" was definitely an exceptional film
and I do have a copy in my DVD library. However, "Gangs of New York" was
about the Irish, where as "Goodfellas" only had one Irish character, played
by Robert Deniro. Therefore, "Gangs" made my best 50 list. Actually, I
thought Joe Peshi's (sp?) best gangster role was in "Casino" where he played
a character based on real life gangster Tony Spilottro (sp?). Bottom-line,
the Irish factor aside, "Goodfellas" would have made the list.

Yeah, I agree. My favorite line was when Tom Hanks asks Hoffman who in the
U.S. goverenment was working on fighting the Russians in Afghanistan and he
says, "Me and three other guys".

300
Constantine
Transformers
Spiderman 3
The Bourne Ultimatum
Dark Knight
Troy

Thats all I can think of right now.

"Lucky You" was pretty awful. Trite script, mediocre acting and the same
old "me-and-my-daddy-are-poker-rivals" theme. On the other hand, it did get
the poker part right and they used all of the old Bellagio poker room
furniture so at least made the poker set look real. I liked Troy and Bourne
Ultimatum (plus I read the books). The others on your list I've seen but
didn't care for them that much.

Seriously here is one to add.

Breaking Bad.

It is an AMC series.

Simply the best commercial series of the year.

You can find it online, or on dvd.

Well bucko, for the record, I'm not one of those guys with closets full of
guns and an NRA sticker on the bumper of his truck. I own one gun, which is
usually enough if you are proficient. I don't own a truck, I'm not a hunter
and I have never been a member of the NRA. In fact, I will only fish at
lodges that have a strict catch-and-release policy.
On the other hand, how good can a movie be if no one gets shot?

No list, but I just finished watching a great documentary on Hunter Thompson
called Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson. It just came out
on DVD in November. It's a must see for any Thompson fan, and will also
appeal to anyone interested in American counterculture during the 60's and
70's.
