Hi all. As discussed in a previous post, might be fun to start to revisit some questions some of us may have answered back in the day...be nice to get a response from as many Rewinders as possible...I'm genuinely curious about this. I'll start with mine (can't remember my exact original top 10...but I suspect it will remain close to the same). Here goes:

1. Back to The Future 2. The Karate Kid 3. Gremlins 4. The Breakfast Club 5. Rocky 3 6. Pretty In Pink 7. Weird Science 8. First Blood 9. E.T 10. Flashdance (I suspect not on many top 10s...my guilty pleasure!!).

Oh boy, here we go! I'm not able to rank these. Please don't make me! They are in random order.

Great Outdoors
Funny Farm
Wall Street
Christmas Vacation
Karate Kid
Planes Trains and Automobiles
Big
Goonies
Field of Dreams
Ghost Busters

I know when I see other people's lists, I will regret some movies not being on here. If my memory serves me well, I'd say these are the ones I watch and enjoy the most. I'm really trying to get A Christmas Story in there but I don't know what movie I could take out, so I will rest with that......for now.

Cool lists guys. I'm actually scanning everyone's list and picking out a handful of movies I haven't seen. I figured if they're on the top 10 list of some of our esteemed members...they must be worth watching!! Wall Street sticking out so far...have yet to see this, but have a copy on Blu-ray...

This makes your list almost worth not seeing!! But let's see it anyway! After your dissing of Flashdance, I better not see something like "Annie" on your list!! [Eek!]
