    ok, though I would just start this and see where it goes.

    My hope is to just re-edit the first post over and over until
    I loose interest or am done.

    Not all films I have can be listed here due to family-friendly issues.
    but I will try to sneak some of them in any way.

    and so, starting with the films that begin with a number, then alpha betical order.
    Unless otherwise stated, they are all laser disks.

    Bold, indicates a recomendation, otherwise must read to see if I comment further.


    1 or one

    One Million B.C._______(1940)__Victor Mature__(one of his best films)
    One Million Years B.C._(1966)__Raquel Welch___(one of her best films)

    Why? Musical score and lack of dialogue. Both films go on for quite some time
    and do not even use verbal sounds during the beginning.


    One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest___1975___A Jack Nicholson Classic tale of insanity.
    (let's hear it for Louise Fletcher as Nurse Ratched)


    Not recomended but fun films for me are,
    One, Two, Three__1961____A James Cagney comedy involving Coca-Cola
    One-Eyed Jacks___1961___Western___Marlon Brando___only film he ever directed, (also starred) Not rated, but banned in Finland at the time.....


    2 or Two

    Two Mules For Sister Sara____1970___A fun Clint Eastwood film that includes a nun who may not be one.

    Two Minute Warning___1976____Charlton Heston
    Original version just had a sniper with unclear motives,
    re-release made like it was to cover up a theft.

    3 or Three

    Three Days Of The Condor___1975__GREAT SPY story
    Three Coins In The Fountin___1954___I am a sucker for films about Rome
    Three Godfathers__1949__John Wayne western about finding baby in dessert. Its good, honest! 1936 version also ok.
    and where all those 3 men and a....movies come from.
    Three Little Words__1950__Fred Astaire & dancing get me everytime.
    Three Lives Of Thomasina__1963__It is a good DISNEY film for people who like cats:)
    Three Musketeers__1939 version pretty good, and 1974-comedy with Raquel Welch (at her best) also pretty good.
    Three Worlds Of Gulliver__1960__A highly recomended kid/adult classic with music by Bernard Herrmann and Special Effects by Ray HarryHausen. Anyone remember Family Classics?

    Other 3-s of note 3 Amigos__(1986 Steve Martin comedy)// 3 Caballeros (1945 Disney Animation)// 3 Came Home (1950 WW2 Prison camp story)// 3 on a Match (1932 grity pre-code drama)// 3 Penny Opera (1931 German film, must see for film students)

    Guilty Pleasure 3 in the Attic___1968__VHS__R-rated at the time. Basically, I like almost all films from 1968


    4 or Four

    Four Feathers___1939__Epic British/India war related tale of guy who must prove he is not a coward.
    Music by Miklos Rozsa. (hhhmmm, I am interested in Music, who knew:)

    other films of note__Four Hourseman of the Apocolypse_1921 (WWI) or 1962 (WWII) family war story// Four Hundred Blows (Art film)// Four Jills In A Jeep-VHS 1944 (fun for the GI-s of WW2 & I'm a Carmen Miranda fan) // Fourth Protocol_1987 (Michael Caine & Pierce Bronson in cold-war nuclear-bomb thiller.

    5 or Five

    none to recomend

    other films of note__Five Pennies__1959 (Danny Kay & Louis Armstrong)// Five Came Back__1939 (Lucille Ball in non-comedy)// Five Weeks In A Balloon__(compelling cast of, Red Buttons, Fabian, Barbra Eden, Peter Lorre)

    6 or Six

    none to recomend

    other films of note__Sixth Sense__1999 (Bruce Willis in one of the very few scary films I like)

    7 or Seven

    The Seven Samurai__1954__Toshiro Mifune in Best Samurai Movie, ever!
    You must read sub-titles, however. Also, I should note, that any movie Toshiro is
    in works for me.

    Seven Faces of Dr. Lao__1964 Great Fantasy Movie
    with special effects by George Pal

    Seven Days In May__1964 Burt Lancaste

    So, at TaunTaun_We's urging, I am posting to note an update/edit in my first post.

    Numbers 4 to 20 are now done. Other numbers will soon follow, but should be done soon.

    I invite all to post here of any film of note, between 1 and 20 at this time, that they
    think of that they liked, that I failed to include.

    In general, I thought a comment on what kinds of films I like should also be noted.

    Musicals, especially the classics by MGM

    WWII era films, both during the era and of the era

    war films in general

    Spy films in general

    Samurai movies in general

    Sci-Fi/Fantasy in general

    Cult films in general.

    Scary films...rarely

    Love Stories...rarely

    films from 1968 in general....I was 16/17 at the time...go figure

    Films with good soundtracks

    Dance films

    Biographic films

    Farce comedy.

    _____________________________
    and so, I hope to update post one, and then post to the thread
    every once in a while to note what to look for in post one,
    and maybe include commentary.

    MT, you appear to be a true film buff. How many titles do you own? Or perhaps more interesting, how many different formats (Beta, VHS, Laserdisc, DVD, etc.)?

    Well, how many titles________A LOT[face_laugh]

    number of formats__________not all,
    am missing, HD-DVD, Blue-Ray, and no actual film, super-8 or otherwise.

    I have a format I am unsure of at this time, and do not even know what it is about,
    just that someone gave it to me, so it may be Beta.

    I have Star Wars on,

    VHS, LaserDisc, CED (but no CED player) and DVD. (wish I had Beta or Super-8)

    The majority of my collection is LaserDisc, so maybe 3000-titles there,
    collected and inherited (from friends)
    over about about a 24-year period of time starting in 1985.

    Mostly from ebay and going out of business sales,
    or never at full price and often at around 5-bucks.

    NOTE: one freind left me about 200.

    I have 2 identical dedicated laser disk players,
    and 2 additional players that handel many formats,
    like 3-inch CDs, 5-inch CDs, 5-inch LDs, 8-inch LDs, 12-inch LDs

    and 1 more player that handles all of those and also 5-inch CD-G karaoke disks
    some of those players from ebay for about $100.00, but they sold for new around $1000.00

    most have been out for repairs over the years. (motors just do not seem to run for-ever,
    who knew:D

    more on my list soon,
    feel free to comment on any titles.

    BOLD, are ones I recomend, the rest hopefully let you know more about me.
    and this activity keeps me off the streets.....lol.

    This list, and MT's other comments re: his collection and films in general, makes me realize how uninteresting I really am. [face_worried]

    OK, the ____________As______are posted!


    and I think I will not try to put the entire list into the first post,


    so


    I will see how it goes and combine letters like X, Y, and Z as one post.

    then I thought I might go back and re-organize them, with what year I seem to favor,

    what Star, what kind, etc.

    and then, I might put togehter a fav list and a must see list,

    and then.......well, I am very much ahead of myself now,
    as the rest of this list will take some time.....


    as always,

    comments are welcome:)

    WHY???????


    or, your options are,

    1.) Donate it all, and take it as a deduction at tax time.

    2.) Keep them. ( I am currently re-watching my Star Trek LDs
    from the late 80s, and they still look great and should last me til I'm
    off fighting evil in another dimension)

    3.) Sell them. unlikely. about 6-years ago, the only store that
    still bought/traded laser disks in the Chicago area that I know of
    went out of business. Around the same time internet sources also became scarce,
    and ebay sellers, also became less.

    So, to sell them on ebay would be a project, and more than likely you have
    mostly common or un-sell-able titles....sorry just the collector in me:)

    I would like to know the titles anyway, unless these area RCA-CED type laser disks.
    so start a thread, and just post titles in shortest/easiest manor as I will know
    if any have any hope of being worth anything, but once again unlikly.

    Your player, should also play CDs, so it should be ok as a CD player in general,
    even if you get rid of your LDs.

    Re: donations, would an electronics program at a local school have any use for the equipment?

    Re: selling, I hope MT doesn't take this the wrong way, but maybe you could find an antique dealer who sells circa 1970s/1980s electronics.

    Many films have adapted this story line.

    Famous amoung them are,

    The Magnificient Seven (has screen credit to 7-Samurai)

    Battle Beyond the Stars.

    in other Seven Samurai thoughts,
    there is a pretty gosh darn good modern day
    animation also based on this film. It is a Sci-Fi
    background to the story, but very well done for
    fans of the original film.


    //edit//

    to add,

    Samurai 7

    an 18 episode TV series, that was fun to watch.
    Done as Sci-Fi with swords and machines,
    but the flavor of the farming community and
    the struggle are there in a way that is a
    tribute to the original story line.

    Just a quick comment on MT's "A list". As will be the norm for this, I have seen only a small number of these films, but I can vouch for Arsenic and Old Lace and the Andy Hardy movies, at least Life Begins for Andy Hardy.

    Just an update comment.

    I am working on the____ Bs ____

    and it is getting out of hand,

    I may have to split that post up into two posts.

    One being my list of ones I recomend,
    and the other one of movies of note.

    If I can continue this, I am sure it will
    eventually get quite rediculous[face_laugh]

    ok, the Bs are done and should be posted shortly.

    As I work on this, I can see that I would like to cull sub-lists once I am done,
    if I get done___ha ha

    There will be two posts for the Bs. One is the "BOLD",
    which is mostly films I recomend in general and also to reveal
    a little about me:)

    Ideas for sub-lists are, which year do I favor the most, how many are silent films,
    can I make an all-time fav list under 100 films,
    can I make a must see list (including Favs and non-Favs), a list where the Music
    is the focus, etc______suggestions?

    This is also the first soundtrack album I bought to

    Very slow to get around to commenting on "MT's B's"...

    I am continuing to be amazed by the breadth of MT's lists. This one ranges from the all time classics (Ben Hur) to 80s classics (The Breakfast Club) to the I-never-would-have-guessed-in-a-million-years (Breakin')!

    NOTE to all, am still working on the

    notable-B films.

    or

    In the numbers and As, there are movies in BOLD and others that are not,

    the not are notable films that are not on my bold list.

    and so here are my thoughts on that at this time.

    BOLD listed films are films I

    a.) Recomend
    b.) are a favorite and thus expose me for the nut I am
    c.) may not be great films, but I think should be seen anyway

    The not-bold listed films are all ok films and usually
    have something____notable____about them.

    Lastly, these lists refelct only half of what I have,

    For example, there will be somefilms listed with John Wayne,
    Fred Astaire, Toshiro Mifune

    or films about WWII

    or films James Bond,

    in all my lists__________but not all that I own,

    or, have tried to get every John Wayne film I can,

    have about 400 war related films,

    and not all James Bond films will make the posted lists,
    like___Never Say Never

    ok, hopefully the notable B-s will be up soon:)

    MT, are these posts from a list you already have compiled, or are you doing all this off the top of your head?

    Surprises in this list for me:


    n-Batman (all versions) but less and less with each sequel for me.

    I wouldn't have thought some of those films would have been good enough to even be "notable".


    n-Bedazzled__1967 comedy, I am a Raquel Welch fan.

    When I read "Bedazzled", at first I thought of [link=http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0230030/]this[/link].


    n-Benji__1974 a film for the whole family. (love dog films)

    I didn't know this: "(love dog films)"! This thread should be retitled to "Getting to Know MT"

    ref Batman___well, nothing can top the 1966 version, so I guess I am recognizing,
    the franchise and the many many fans it has:)

    ref dog films_______grew up on Rin Tin Tin (TV), and a little know film,
    The littlest Hobo, and of course Old Yeller. Dog films will hopefully
    get their own list, if I ever get done with this master list,

    which answers your first question, sort of, and that is
    I do not have a master list.

    I have a want-list, and an older (15-yrs ago) what do I have list,
    but, mostly, my current active list, is the actual laser disks
    in boxes and book cases, along with what ever is in my head,
    and any research tools, such as the IMDB.

    My method is to look at what I own, and then to try to sort this mess into

    BOLD____or I think it should be seen or I really really like it.

    notable___I sort of think it should be seen, or gotta admit I kinda like it.

    not posted___the stuff I have for some reason that is not yet clear to me
    but that I can not throw it out. And also some adult, foreign, TV, documentary, etc.
    stuff.


    Then, I put the bold into a word-documdment, and try to include,
    enough info to put the film into a catagory that makes sense
    or some reason to watch the film, a story, a star, an era, I like it, etc.

    Then I look for errors, and post the BOLD,
    then I rework the N, and try to get rid of a few more items.

    and then try to confirm, if I need a copy of the film, or if the copy I have,
    is DVD or VHS_______otherwise, these are all Laser Disks, (I have about 3000)

    and then corrections,


    Lastly, very very very much appreaciate the comments about the list,
    any others who wish to chime in and/or tease me on any title,
    please do so:D
