They made a list of 101 …these are the top 10…
So ……..what do you think? What are your top 10 screenplays?…. I know that I truly believe that 2 of the most over rated movies ever made are on this list…2 movies that I, Jackisue…just didn’t get or like and no matter how many times I watched them I still found myself saying “What is the big fucking deal about this movie.”

  3. princeofbrokenhearts Says:

    do they have to be in order… like number 1 is the best, etc… or just the 10 best?

  4. Brad Says:

    LA Confidential not being in the top ten is absolutely ridiculous.

  5. yellowdog granny Says:

    ok, two movies that i think are over rated Casaablanca and Citizen Cane…watched them many times trying to find what everyone else thought was so great..thought they were boring and just didnt get it…and annie hall always makes my shoulders twitch when i see it…like im trying to shake something off of me..

  6. apositivepessimist Says:

    hmmm okay but shiit now i will have to think.

  7. Phats Says:

    WHAT! where the hell is Hoosiers my favorite movie of all time, it tops every sports movie list! haha 🙂

  8. Nit Wit Says:

    Looking at this list just reinforces my belief that screenwriters need to get out more. Profits equal good I guess.

  9. Clance' McClannahan Says:

    My top 10 screen plays?

    Secondhand Lion
    Big Fish
    The Postman
    The People under the Stairs
    I could go on and on but I won’t, for you and your dear reader’s sakes.

  10. apositivepessimist Says:

    oh okay did you want them here…i whacked them on the end of my latest post.

  11. apositivepessimist Says:

    nope…once were warriors had no stinking russell crowe [tho i don’t mind some of his films…check out romper stomper was gunna add that but ran out of listings] in it because jake the muss [temuera morrison…ouff] would have buttfucked then knucklefucked him. worth a look js. really. but be prepared for all the emotions. pretty raw. it’s a kiwi film regarding a maori family. if you get a chance to see it…do so and lemme know what you think.

    the odd angry shot [vietnam movie] and gallipoli [set in ww1…with mel at his ouffiness] are the aussie one’s.

  12. apositivepessimist Says:

    ooer thumb up yer bum grannie.

  13. BriteYellowGun Says:

    5, 7 and 9 are three of my all time favorites. 5 in particular, the writing was so top notch and smart. I can watch that movie over and over and over.

    Chinatown, I NEVER cared for that movie and thought it was pretty overrated.

  14. leo myshkin Says:

    are blazing saddles and caddyshack considered screenplays?

    me and ruby aren’t much into opera or any crap that takes itself too serious.

  15. Sam Says:

    I think my top ten would be (No order):
    belle ville rendez vouz
    Sans soliel
    A clockwork orange
    Withnail and i
    Dark city
    La jetee
    Life on a string
    Blade runner
    Natural city

  16. Le Pixie Says:

    I’m not good at making lists…but just about any John Hughes film (Breakfast Club, Weird Science, etc), Dirty Shame, the Goonies, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Airplane, Amelie, I hate action films.

  17. Beansidhe Says:

    Yep, I’m still alive, thanks fer askin’ 😉

    Seems right and just that “All about Eve” is in the top ten, also agree that “L.A. Confidential” should be in there too. I’d also add “A Beautiful Mind” to that list. Russ Crowe wasn’t at all “oofie” in it (cheers Apos) but it made ya think about scizophrenia and mental illness and how bloody scary it must be. Or it did me anyway.

  18. mrshife Says:
