    Your favorite movies...

    Having watched my share of movies down the years. It's hard to name just one or two. I like leeway. How about your top 5 or ten?

    This will be broad categories John Wayne movies. James Bond movies. War movies based on true events or somewhat true events like Lone Survivor, Patton, We Were Soldiers, U-571 and Run Silent, Run Deep. If including TV shows, Vikings is my favorite current TV show. Also like Knightfall, The Big Bang Theory, Last Man Standing and Live PD. Also like old ones: Band of Brothers (probably tied with Vikings as my favorite), Hunter, In The Heat of the Night, AirWolf, A-Team, Monk, The Andy Griffith Show, The Jeffersons and The Company.

    Shane , My Dinner With Andre and Three faces of Eve are the ones come to mind .

    Seriously "U-571" as a true events story?

    Do you even know who broke the Enigma codes?
    Do you even know when the Enigma code was broke?

    Other questions about who and when captured the Enigma machine from submarine/U-boot I will leave to you when you will be checking "true event"

    The Thing 1982: Best apocalyptic movie/special effects
    They Live: “Another movie that applies to today”
    Jurassic Park: “Science gone wrong/Dinosaurs”
    Jaws: “Salt Life gone wrong:P”
    Alien/Aliens: Suspense/Vietnam in Space good stuff
    Once upon a Time In the West: “One of the top Westerns hands down”
    The Fly 80s ver: Good special effects “science gone wrong again”
    Escape From New York: “Snake Plissken Nuff Said”
    Tombstone: Second/Third Best western hands down
    Good The Bad and the ugly: “Gotta say one of the tops for sure”

    List can change up over time but will still stick with The Thing as one of my tops.

    Taxi Driver, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Scarface are some of my favorites. Any silent horror film as well. Like Nosferatu obviously.

    No way I could do a top 5 because there is just too many movies I love. I will say The Matrix and the original Fast and Furious is still on rotation, as is the original Star Wars. Not my favorites but amongst them for sure.

    Clint Eastwood and James Bond movies I can watch over and over. I remember when the first Jaws movie came out, that was pretty much hair rising.
