Found these 2 gems:

Anthony Mackie Explains Why Hollywood Movies Suck Now ie. Sam Wilson / Falcon

and

Jurassic World, Jurassic Values. "I dislike Jurassic World. Here's one of the many reasons why."

Yeah, I fucking hate that movie. And I say that as a fan of Chris Pratt generally. But that movie is just awful, and both "Claire" and Bryce Dallas Howard are a big part of that. Also, the dumb and derivative script.

Good vids though.

Been really into watching Red Letter Media lately (or listening while I work). Good stuff.

Also, Aliens is probably the greatest action movie ever made.
My old boss thought Aliens realistically displayed the "fog of war" feeling.

Top 10 is so hard since I'm excluding fantastic movies like ...
You're right, it's dang near impossible I could also post this as my top ten and be perfectly happy on a desert island.

The Departed
Amadeus
The Dark Knight
Snatch
Back to the Future
The Godfather
Reservoir Dogs
The Silence of the Lambs
Alien
The Usual Suspects

Adding the above to the my op still doesn't cover half of my "Top 10"

in no particular order

The Martian
Once Upon a Time in the West
Pulp Fiction
2001: A Space Odyssey
Blood Simple
Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
No Country for Old Men
Blazing Saddles
L.A. Confidential
Monty Python and The Holy Grail

That only leaves out about 30 other movies.

Great movies. I just showed my 10 year old Holy Grail yesterday: he loved it, and immediately started making his own variations of the "She's a witch!" skit trying to come up with even more ridiculous "scientific" logic than they have in the movie.

If I created a top 10 without seeing your list, I'd undoubtedly include a few of yours like Holy Grail and No Country. So here's a top 10 that excludes any of yours:
- Aliens
- Terminator
- Master & Commander
- Princess Bride
- The Thing
- Fellowship of the Ring
- Inception
- The Matrix
- Arrival
- The Nightmare before Christmas

Top 10 is so hard since I'm excluding fantastic movies like Jurassic Park, Tonari no Totoro, Interstellar, Goodfellas, Bladerunner, Fury Road, Sixth Sense, and a bunch of others.

Edit: Fuck, where can I fit in Dead Poet's Society?
