  1. To Be or Not to Be (1942) is a war/drama/comedy/romance
  2. I thought Fonda & Perkins were really good in The Tin Star....the plot wasn't of much substance....was that your issue with it? The one western I haven't seen that I really want to see is Once Again Upon a Time in the West....I don't remember ever seeing it being scheduled on TCM or AMC............
  3. I think the following are either way overrated or flat out bad: All Quiet on the Western Front; Apolcalypse Now; Darkest Hour; Dunkirk; Glory; The Red Badge of Courage; Fury; Wind Talkers; Gunga Din & We Were Soldiers. However, unlike Latrice, I did like Monuments Men. Also, how can anyone not like The Longest Day?
  4. I'd like to make a comment about Cary Grant in romantic comedies generally......imo, he personally was fantastic, but many of his "zany" movies are overrated (ie...Bringing up Baby, Philadelphia Story, His Girl Friday......it just has something to do with how hard comedies are to make, and how much the culture has changed since his time. My 20ish kids won't even watch them.
  5. I haven't seen some of those mentioned. Off what I've seen: 1. High Noon 2. My Darling Clementine 3. The Magnificent Seven 4. Ride the High Country.......Very underrated 5. Red River 6. How the West was Won 7. Pale Rider 8. The Tin Star......To me, also very underrated...... 9. The Searchers........imo, somewhat overrated on most lists.... 10. Shane 11. The Treasure of Sierra Madre 12. Butch Cassidy...............not as good as it seemed in the '70s 13. Cat Ballou....(re: Jane's boobs are worth a spot on th
  6. Here are mine, with a couple of comments: 1. The Bridge over the River Kwai---multi-layered 2. Patton---GC Scott 3. Saving Private Ryan 4. The Great Escape 5. They Were Expendable---I love this movie.....certainly a movie like Saving Private Ryan is a 'greater movie' in terms of the production as a whole, but RM and Wayne were over the top good in this movie....I think John Wayne's best as he was somewhat restrained...and Donna Reed....amazing. 6. The Longest Day---This suffers a little bit from being too star-focused, but the effort that went into it r
  7. From someone who is new to this forum, not a musician, and not particularly into musicals as such, but interested in movies generally......my top 10: 1. The Wizard of Oz 2. The Sound of Music 3. The Music Man 4. Yankee Doodle Dandy 5. Fiddler on the Roof 6. Singin' in the Rain 7. An American in Paris. I have no expertise nor technical criteria...these just seem to me to have some weight/originality or the "it" factor. The single common factor I see is that they all have a single dominant personality. I'm interested in why more people don't rate Fid
