I think you can tell a lot about a person by what movies they love. I offer my list to start a discussion to get to know other members better, particularly for those in colder climates, whose bikes are imprisoned in the garage. Looking for only the very cream of the crop. Not looking for movies you liked, thought were good, or even great, but the top 1% or less that just blew you away. I have rated ~2,500 movies on Netflix, and my list of "5 star" rated movies is less than 25 long. Here are my "Greatest Movies of All Time", in alphabetical order:



  • Arlington Road (1999)
  • The Babe (1992)
  • A Beautiful Mind (2001)
  • Braveheart (1995)
  • Caddyshack (1980)
  • Cinderella Man (2005)
  • Dances with Wolves (1990)
  • Freedom Writers (2007)
  • The Game (1997)
  • Gettysburg (1993)
  • Good Will Hunting (1997)
  • The Green Mile (1999)
  • Open Range (2003)
  • Patch Adams (1998)
  • Pay It Forward (2000)
  • The People vs. Larry Flynt (1996)
  • Remember the Titans (2000)
  • The Right Stuff (1983)
  • The Sandlot (1993)
  • The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
  • A Time to Kill (1996)
  • Tucker: The Man and His Dream (1988)

What are yours?

I like many of the ones on your first list but you said ones that blew us away.

On Any Sunday
Tombstone

I still remember our friend Tom, who was a motorcycle mechanic, taking his wife, me and my wife to On Any Sunday. We were in our 20s and motorcycles were quickly becoming our free time life.

When Tombstone came out I had recently moved to Arizona and was getting into the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting. The authentic costumes and guns along with a "fairly accurate" depiction of the events really hit home. A friend at work and I would use many of the catch phrases from the movie during management meetings which gave he and I a chuckle especially when no one else caught on. A few years later the shooting club in Tombstone started holding the Arizona State Championship of Cowboy Action Shooting at a range outside of town so it was very cool to walk the streets of Tombstone at night with our period clothes on including guns and holsters. Yes in Arizona you can do that.
