Lists by Tony-Scheinman
This is a selection of what I consider some of the best films and TV mini-series dealing NOT with the modern super-spy like James Bond, Jack Bauer or Jason Bourne but with the TRUE spy from the days of or before the Cold War.
There are certain films (traditional and otherwise) that are and should be a must to watch at Christmastime. This list contains my personal selections for the Yuletide and are not in any particular order.
Taken for all in all, Russia is one of the largest countries in the world and has a panoramic beauty all its own. The films in this list, in no real order, show that beauty in all its glory, sweeping the viewer from one end to other and making you gasp or laugh (depending on the film).
The below-listed films are those I consider to be the best (not necessarily the closest) adaptations of tales by Edgar Allan Poe.
In no specific order, these are some of the best (in my opinion) films set around a major robbery or burglary.
For me, a western is not a matter of "white hats" versus "black hats" (that is, good guys versus bad guys), but a matter of who has the fastest gun AND the most interesting personality behind the gun, no matter if he's a good guy, a bad guy or an anti-hero. Here's a list (in no particular order) of the ones I consider to be among the best guns in the big- and small-screen Old West.
King Henry VIII is one of the most dominating characters in British history, but there are certain films and TV series where the performance does justice to the actual history. Here is a list of some of them.
Death is considered to be one of the two most perpetual things in existence (the other being taxes), but everyone has a different idea of what Death looks like, depending on what culture you're from. TV and Film are no different, and what follows is a list (in no actual order) of the different portrayals and portrayers of Death on TV and on film.
Who's to say that serial kilers can't be loveable? This is a conditonal list of films starring serial killers who have bceome either fan favorites or cult classics.
Frankenstein's creation has been the subject of more films than I can count, and probably just as many lists of which some people consider the best. Here's my addition of preferences, not in any order.
One of the most famous American ghost stories is Washington Irving's THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW. While the main character is Ichabod Crane, it's The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow that steals the story (whether or not he actually exists, since the Irving story leaves that pretty ambiguous), and here's a list of "Sleepy Hollow" films and TV shows that allow him to ride again!
Here are some of the best, toughest, ruthless, etc. male secret agents who ever graced the screen, both large and small!
Disney has made a lot of animated films and a lot of memorable characters over the years, but there are some characters in Disney films that really stand out as the most loveable. This is a list in no particular order. Some characters were not able to be added due to the fact that they had no listing in IMDB, such as "Carpet" from ALADDIN.
War used to be more of a human conflict, where combatants actually faced each other across a battlefield, but with the technological advance of the early twentieth century war became less personalized. The films and TV series/movies included in this list make no attempt to glorify war and are a tribute to when war was not a push-button/long-distance matter but true strength and fighting skill against strength and fighting skill. The films listed below are not in any particular order.
This is a list of films made from Shakespearean plays - FILMS, not recorded performances or films based upon Shakeapeare - that are absolute necessities for any Shakespearean libraries or collection.
Secret agents and super-spies don't have to be just men! The below-listed characters show that the female can be deadlier than the male!
This is a list of films and TV shows featuring the actual destruction of the world.
This is a partial list of films and television shows, both good and bad, in which His Satannic Majesty plays a starring or (at least) featured role.
A collection of actors playing the King of Sherwood Forest on both film and television (I am not including animated Robin Hoods) in no particular order.
Robin Hood on both film and television
THE NUTCRACKER ballet is just as much a Christmas video tradition as A CHRISTMAS CAROL, A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS, MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET or IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE, and some versions are better than others. I'd like to share my preferences with you in time for the next Christmas.
The following titles are a mixture of history, historical fiction and legend. While they are not in any particular order, each one of them is worth watching.
After several years of watching and loving horror films, I'd like to share with you my list of the films I truly believe are the scariest films of all time. NOTE: These are not in any specific order of preference.
The films in this list are ones which absolutely should be seen on Halloween Night, especially since they incorporate the actual holiday into the plot!
