Rants Without Pants: Top 11 Movies to Watch Over and Over

Postby Schabow » Thu Jul 12, 2012 9:05 am

Usually I discuss politics, but this week and the next (part 2), my brother and I will discuss our top 11 movies that we can watch over and over again. We were up north on vacation and thought this would be fun to do.

No. I would love my blog to get a bit more exposure. I used to write for Dane101, so they are helping link to it when they can. Of course, it's nice when Ann has linked as well.

But mostly, I just do it for the fun of it anyway.

Those who are interested in what the list is. It's the top 11 movies we can watch over and over again. The unoriginal "stranded on a desert island" list.


1:25 in video - Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (Jeremy's Number 11)

2:08 in video - Jaws (Adam's Number 11)

2:58 in video - Jesus Christ Superstar (Jeremy's Number 10)

3:51 in video - No Country for Old Men (Adam's Number 10)

4:55 in video - Top Secret (Jeremy's Number 9)

5:30 in video - Annie Hall (Adam's Number 9)

6:29 in video - Hairspray (Jeremy's Number 8 )

07:38 in video - North by Northwest (Adam's Number 8 )

8:55 in video - Return of the Jedi (Jeremy's Number 7)

10:30 in video - Dawn of the Dead (Adam's Number 7)

11:55 in video - For Your Eyes Only (Jeremy's Number 6)

12:50 in video - Kill Bill Vol II (Adam's Number 6)

Five through One will be posted on Sunday or Monday.

If I made a list, it would probably be based on movies that, should I happen to see them while channel surfing, I would be likely to watch them to the end. I can think of a few:

The Right Stuff
Once Upon a time in the West
The Good the Bad and the Ugly
Raising Arizona
Groundhog Day
Fargo

I like to revisit 2001 every few years. And Cheech & Chong's Nice Dreams.

So this is Part 2 of my brother Jeremy Schabow and I discussing Top 11 Movies we can watch over and over again. This is the Top 5. We shot this vacationing in up-north Wisconsin.

Straight from Youtube...

Igor's picks of "Once Upon the Time in the West", "Raising Arizona" and "Groundhog Day", as well as Meade's picks of "Phycho", "A Hard Days Night" and "Back to the Future", as well as pjbogart's picks of "Goonies", "Alien/Aliens" and "The Exorcist", as well as Huckleby's picks of "His Girl Friday" and "Life of Brian" were all strongly considered for my list. All of those would have made an honerable mention category which I wanted to do, but my brother fought against it...and he was right.

00:00 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (Jeremy’s Number 5)

00:58 Ghostbusters (Adam’s Number 5)

01:48 Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (Jeremy’s Number 4)

02:48 Empire Strikes Back (Adam’s Number 4)

04:30 Superman (Jeremy’s Number 3)

05:28 The Royal Tenenbaums (Adam’s Number 3)

07:03 Casino Royal (Jeremy’s Number 2)

08:34 All the President’s Men (Adam’s Number 2)

09:23 Empire Strikes Back (Jeremy’s Number 1)

10:53 Raiders of the Lost Ark (Adam’s Number 1)

Recap of all the movies from 11 - 1 at the end of the video.

Anyway, back to politics next week for Rants Without Pants.

To take a break from politics, every couple months my brother and I will do a top 5 segment, similar to this dealing with movies, books, music or tv.

No Moonstruck? What a bunch of dudes.

And:

Goodfellas
Caddyshack
Fargo
Men In Black
Desk Set
Kill Bill Vol II
The Philadelphia Story
Fight Club
Terminator 2
Blade Runner

Barely missed the cut, might've made it on different day: Let the Right One In, Reservoir Dogs. Moonrise Kingdom might worm its way onto the list... too soon to tell.

Wow, a lot of good movies here. I will add:

The Shawshank Redemption

Tommy Boy

Talladega Nights

Seven

(even though they're newer) any of the Dark Knight movies.

I'll add Platoon and Full Metal Jacket for some good war movies too.
