    Where did you hear that? FAUX News ?

    The Colonial British left because of non-violent protests, strikes and non-cooperation from Indians.

    Pakistan was partitioned from India by treaty.

    There was no civil war.

    Ok...gotta throw it out there...Wizard of Oz. pretty groundbreaking for its time. Had to be pretty mind blowing for the folks in 1939 to see a movie go from black and white to color. Flying monkeys scared the hell out of me when I was a kid.

    Good point---going with the groundbreaking theme, the original King Kong was amazing for its time. (1933)

    The original Rocky movie....the script by Sylvester Stallone is great....the boxing scenes not so much but it's still a good movie. Great writing and dialogue. Takes you to that time and place....it's really a very good movie.

    Reminds me of Bruce Brown's motocyle version On Any Sunday. I bet I have watched it literally 100 times.

    I am a little surprised to have not seen Jaws listed more often - Sea Snake, SAENole and SodaPopinski were the only 3 others I saw. If I ever come across this on TV, it is very hard to not watch it, despite owning the DVD (and VHS!). We even have a dog named Chief Martin Brody! Just love it. My wife and I quote it back and forth all of the time. Tons of other great flicks listed here.

    I was just thinking of Bond this weekend, some station was having a bond-a-thon. While I wouldn't put any Bond movie in the top ten all time, you can always kill time watching a 007 rerun and be entertained.

    Most any movie directed by John Huston...he was the director of many of Bogarts movies, including Key Largo, Maltese Falcon and the African Queen...my favorite is The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Bogart plays the bad guy in this movie. He also directed Prizzes Honor and a bunch other great movies over the span of over four decades.

    White Hunter Black Heart is a 1990 American adventure drama film directed by and starring Clint Eastwood and based on the 1953 book of the same name by Peter Viertel. Viertel also co-wrote the script with James Bridges and Burt Kennedy. The film is a thinly disguised account of writer Peter Viertel's experiences while working on the classic 1951 film The African Queen, which was shot on location in Africa at a time when location shoots outside of the United States for American films were very rare. The main character, brash director John Wilson, played by Eastwood, is based on real-life director John Huston. Jeff Fahey plays Pete Verrill, a character based on Viertel. George Dzundza's character is based on African Queen producer Sam Spiegel. Marisa Berenson's character Kay Gibson and Richard Vanstone's character Phil Duncan, are based on Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart, respectively.

    Not a huge Kevin Costner fan but 3000 miles to Graceland and Field of Dreams were pretty good.
    Natural born Killers and King Pin with Woody Harrleson. Julliett Lewis was a **** in Natural born Killers....good movie.
    Chaplin...Robert Downey Jr. is brilliant. You would think you were watching Charlie Chaplin when you see his portrayal.
