    Unless one of you comes up with a movie that so obviously belongs on the list I should be taken out back of the barn and hosswhipped for forgetting it this is going to be the final version of what I now call 260 (More Or Less) MOVIES YOU REALLY OUGHTA SEE

    Again, I sincerely and most humbly thank all of you who made suggestions and told me flat out I was crazy, stupid or just flat out ignorant to leave certain movies off this list. That’s what I needed. I knew that in order to have as well rounded a list as possible I’d need a wide range of opinions and suggestions. So your help has been most appreciated.

    This list is going to appear in my next book of movie reviews: THE BRIDE OF DERRICK FERGUSON’S MOVIE REVIEW NOTEBOOK (modest sucka, ain’t I?) and I’ve already made up my mind that the dedication of the book is going to be to those of you who helped with this list. Some of you are going to be in the dedication no matter what but there are others I’d like to include. So please let me know either by responding here in this thread or by private message how you’d like to be identified in the dedication. Either by your real name or your GF name.

    That’s it for now…at least until we do this again for THE SON OF DERRICK FERGUSON’S MOVIE REVIEW NOTEBOOK

    :lol:I thought you left out Raging Bull and Rocky as you left it out of sports

    I think RAGING BULL & ROCKY (especially RAGING BULL) are more dramas that explore the psychology of the lead characters. The sports aspect really is secondary to who these men are and how they relate to the people in their lives and the world.

    I think you should add Mean Girls to the chick flick category. I thought it was actually pretty good and a funny portrayal of modern day high school.

    You should add Jet Li's Fearless to the Epic Drama section. It's an excellent movie, and most of the people that I talk to have only heard of it. But fucking fantastic movie.

    I think I've only seen 54 of those movies.

    Btw, why is Alien under sci-fi and the sequel Aliens under Action/Adventure?
