Lists by themadsen
I still have quite a few WWII-movies on my watchlist though.
This is a list of movies I've rated 7 or above, which has got less than 20,000 votes at the moment of entry. Some are famous, others not so much. Some are critically acclaimed, some are critically panned. Randomly ranked.
The list will be updated regularly.
I haven't yet had the opportunity to watch the movies from the golden age of the genre starring James Cagney, Edward G. Robinson, Paul Muni and the likes. At a later stage when I've explored that era, the list will most likely be expanded.
Because of this you can view this list as a introduction to the genre.
1. John Ford (9)
2. Sergio Leone (5)
3. John Sturges (5)
4. Sam Peckinpah (5)
5. Clint Eastwood (4)
1. John Wayne (16)
2. Clint Eastwood (9)
3. Henry Fonda (7)
4. James Stewart (6)
5. James Coburn (5)
1. Harry Carey Jr. (9)
2. Ward Bond (6)
3. Ben Johnson (5)
4. Jack Palance (5)
5. Lee Marvin (5)
6. Walter Brennan (5)
The list doesn't include writer/actor-relationships like Wilder and Brooks or Atkinson and Curtis.
I've excluded reboots and series without continuity like the James Bond-series.
Usually I can accept campy or stupid movies, and I score movies based on what I feel, I can expect from a movie. For example, there's only ONE Police Academy movie, I deem excruciating enough to list here. Catch my drift?
These are the bottom of the barrel in my estimation. These are my 1's, 2's and the last ten are the worst 3's. Proceed with caution.
