Favorite Movies (Work in progress)

This is divided up in sections and in order best to worst of the best, War flicks, Drama , Horror, SciFi, Misc (Doesn't fit in the others for me), and Comedy. It is impossible for me to choose 1 movie as an all time best, Saving Private Ryan, The Shawshank Redemption, Star Trek are probably the top 3.

1. Saving Private Ryan (1998)
Start of the War Flicks and my #1 Pick. You might as well have been a part of the platoon, it felt that real.

22. Star Trek (2009)
This is the start of the SciFi section (not going to say it's my #1 pick, you know that now). This one was hard. I am an avid SciFi fan and there are some really good movies out there, but I grew up on Star Trek, so it tops the list.

You have to watch this movie at least 4 times to really get all the imagery in it. I wish they would remake this in today's technology.
