    You are being overthrown by Obama and ObamaCare per my comments yesterday that Obama is recruiting illegal aliens in California (that will get ObamaCare for free due to poverty level income). BIG Obama LIE!!

    You liked “Valley Girl”, but didn’t even mention “The Princess Bride????” What’s wrong with you?

    • danfromsquirrelhill replied:

      I haven’t seen it, but thanks for the recommendation.

      • HMichael Hawkins replied:

        I hope you have a chance to watch “The Princess Bride.” Although it appears to be a movie for young people, it has some very sophisticated, and humorous, “One Liners” throughout.

    • danfromsquirrelhill replied:

      I just watched “The Princess Bride.” It was quite good. Thanks again for the recommendation.

    I like this list. Many of my favorites are included, and that is not common.

    • danfromsquirrelhill replied:

      Which ones were you the most surprised to see on my list?

      • drketedc replied:

        Comedies. Most lists are trendy, classics, artsy and action. I love Steve Martin, for example. Harold and Maude, Princess Caraboo, even Marx Brothers. You actually had a bit of everything.

    Well, I would have included “Shane” and “Spartacus” but unsure what to bump for those positions….
