    There is some pretty ordinary stuff posted on these pages.
    My top te will come to me.
    But Zivago is definately in my Bottom Ten
    Turgid, weak, repetative, morbid and obvious......and that is just the cinematography.
    I walked out at half time and absolutely refuse ever to go back and watch another eighty minutes of that pathetic angst.
    If you really want to watch a looser on the road to nowhere.... try Cool Hand Luke, or Salvador, at least you might want them to succeed, if they ever could.

    In addition to my favorite movie, Dr. Zhivago.
    There are 15 other films that everyone should see
    before they die. I have listed thirteen with the year
    they were made. The other two have no assigned year
    as they were not listed in the reference I used.
    They are no less worthy of being seen. I have listed
    them first. These films are listed in no particular
    order as they are of equal value in my estimation.

    1. Abandon Ship (Starring Tyrone Power)
    2. No Name On The Bullet (Starring Audie Murphy)
    3. Network (1976)
    4. The Wizard Of Oz (1939)
    5. Little Big Man (1970)
    6. Unforgiven (1992)
    7. Freaks (1932)
    8. The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957)
    9. Where The Red Fern Grows (1974)
    10. They Shoot Horses, Don't They? (1969)
    11. The Hospital (1971)
    12. The Last Picture Show (1971)
    13. Harvey (1950)
    14. Being There (1979)
    15. Catch 22 (1970)

    If you miss one of these, you are the lesser for it.
    And those who did see them, will always know more than you.
