What are your TOP five movies of all time?

Hoping someone has a movie or movies in their top 5 I have not watched, so I can watch them too.



Here are mine. My criteria is being able to watch it over and over again until I know many of the lines spoken in the movie.

The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
