Los Angeles citizens with vastly separate lives collide in interweaving stories of race, loss and redemption.

Competition between the maid of honor and a bridesmaid, over who is the bride's best friend, threatens to upend the life of an out-of-work pastry chef.

48. Death Proof (2007)
Not Rated | 113 min | Action, Thriller

An undercover cop and a mole in the police attempt to identify each other while infiltrating an Irish gang in South Boston.

53. Domino (2005)
R | 127 min | Action, Biography, Crime
Votes: 60,272 | Gross: $10.17M
I like the story and the 90210 cameos, but they tried to be too clever with the delivery.

The cross-country adventures of two good-hearted but incredibly stupid friends.

Votes: 1,512,778 | Gross: $37.03M
Great adaptation of the novel. Just like 'A Beautiful Mind' the first time I saw this I had no idea what it was about, which makes the end a scoch better. I think I've read every Palahniuk book since.

If you are (or ever were) a teacher then this one is better than it gets credit for. The 'Stand and Deliver' reference is awesome (I used to show this in my class when I needed a break).

R | 102 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
A quietly troubled young man returns home for his mother's funeral after being estranged from his family for a decade.

Votes: 813,315 | Gross: $46.84M
Best of my 'G' movies, but my DVD copy is terrible. It's widescreen, but within the 4:3 frame. Pointless. The movie is also split into two parts--you have to flip the disk in the middle of the movie.
86. The Goonies (1985)
PG | 114 min | Adventure, Comedy, Family

Holds up well for the kids. I like the Domino's Pizza product placement at the end--reminds me of when they first started delivering in my neighborhood in the '80s.
87. Gran Torino (2008)

Walt's children and grandchildren are turds. Good story about a grumpy old man with a heart.

Shot documentary-style, this film follows the daily grind of two young police officers in LA who are partners and friends, and what happens when they meet criminal forces greater than themselves.
Votes: 198,611 | Gross: $41.00M
This is one of my favorite movies of all time. Something about the way Gyllenhaal and Pena interact clicks with me. Best of my 'E' movies.
89. The Green Mile (1999)

R | 110 min | Action, Drama, Thriller
A very realistic interpretation of one of the bloodiest battles of the Vietnam War.
Votes: 20,322 | Gross: $13.84M
Just depressing. Why can't I ever remember that guy from Wings name (either brother really)? I always have to refer to him as 'the guy from wings -- the crazy brother.'
93. The Hangover (2009)

Some good stuff, and some ridiculous stuff. For example, you might think it's stupid when they hang glide, but since they just rode a cheetah it's okay.
95. Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (2008)
R | 104 min | Adventure, Comedy
After being mistaken for terrorists and thrown into Guantánamo Bay, stoners Harold and Kumar escape and return to the U.S., where they proceed to flee across the country with federal agents in hot pursuit.

Got this one because I enjoyed the first one. Not quite as good, but still fun. Should I get the third to complete the trilogy?

A tough-minded drama about two friends in South Central Los Angeles and the violence that comes between them.

It's as if David Ayer has the secret key to what I like in a movie. Oh, and Christian Bale is good.

Pretty good. For some reason, when I think of this movie I picture the cartoon Bilbo from the 70's version (which was also pretty good).
98. Harvard Man (2001)
R | 99 min | Comedy, Crime, Drama
A basketball player strikes a deal with the mob to fix a basketball game.
Votes: 3,905 | Gross: $0.06M
Not good. Some good ideas, but still not good. Also, I don't know if it's just the DVD, but this movie has the worst colors/lighting ever.

PG | 120 min | Adventure, Drama, Family
Brutal cold forces two Antarctic explorers to leave their team of sled dogs behind as they fend for their survival.

This is just a good time. A little sad, but a great story.
100. Havoc (2005)
R | 85 min | Crime, Drama
Two affluent suburban girls clash with the Latino gang culture of East Los Angeles.
My 100th movie is...Havoc...really? Some serious overacting, but an acceptable story. It seemed like they got tired of making the movie and just rushed the ending.
