 Alot good movies on this list. Had a hard time choosing, but here's what I came up with (though, this could easily change in it's structure & it's ranking at any moment):


 
  10. A Few Good Men - Okay, okay.... a courtroom drama as formula-ic as it gets.....
but still....
friggin Nicholson in this movie,
in a role that plays perfectly to his strengths. A mean ol' sunuvabitch with a focused confidence, a black heart & a wry look that you know he wears wether he's describing a blowjob from a female officer or warding off bullets from Cuban snipers in defense of this great country and, more importantly, of his military career. And Nicholson does this to such a successful degree, that even though he doesn't really have all that much screentime in this film, the face of Col. Jessup in the witness chair is usually the 1st. image that comes up when this movie is mentioned. And as always, the mark of a great performance is to be able to deliver a line that ends up becoming a part of the culture. And if you don't agree with that, there's only one reason why:
"YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!"
Plus,
though I've never been a big fan of her acting, this was back when Demi Moore was at her most gorgeous. She has always been a guilty pleasure for me ( I've even sat thru Strip-Tease for multiple viewings just to stare this luscious piece of the human species...)

  9. Hard Boiled - Damn. Sure are a lot bullets in this movie.
 
  8.  Baraka - koo-ooollll.........

  7. Brother's Keeper -  A town comes together for one of their own.
Well....
one of their own that came "outta the the abandoned basement of society", which we have all seem to deny exists. Until, the media comes arunnin' to shine it's light of "subjective truth" upon it.
A story that starts out macabrely weird & ends up macabrely moving.
 
  6. A League of Their Own  -  - It's ironic that, a game mostly associated with male players, a film which focuses on the women's first professional entry into the sport, would be the one that, for me, truly captures the feeling which best reflects of why this sport is truly an American pasttime. That the purpose of a game is, no matter how the political world events may be turbulently transpiring, we all can just escape for a little while, catch a ballgame & hopefully return into the real world with our spirits a little higher & our perspectives a little bit clearer. Because, as we all know by now, there is no crying in baseball.

 5 .Reservoir Dogs - A mexican stand-off. Pop culture laden discussions. Casual cursing with machine gun rapidity. A mixed bag collection of songs that could only be found on a cassette that was taped by some nerd boy who collects comicbooks, works in an indie video or record store & thinks that guns are bad-ass.
All the elements that would qualify a film as being described as "Tarantinoesque".
And this is where it all started.

  4. El Mariachi - Because of the financial restraints of this picture, the story is forced to be told thru the creativity of all-out action in it's most pure & unadulterated form. There should be a law requiring that all action films be shot & directed with as much energy & fun as this one, before any of the million dollars of special effects are added on.
Action-adventure in it's all bared-boned glory.

  3. Glengarry Glen Ross - One of my fave ensemble movies ever.

  2. Malcolm X - One of my fave (and incredibly cohesive) biopics ever & my fave Spike Lee joint.

  1. Unforgiven - The last chapter in the saga of the Man With No Name?
My fave western ever.

I was wondering why the hell that was on the list.

Tough call. Lots of good, really good, but nothing great. I went with Glengarry Glen Ross, but on a different day it could be Man Bites Dog or Unforgiven.
