Entertainment Weekly Online posted a list of the 14 movies that Will Ferrel thought everyone should see before they die...sort of a 'bucket list' of films if you will. Follow the link to see his. Here are my 'must sees' in no particular order.
1. Donnie Darko 2. V for Vendetta 3. Tombstone 4. Golden Voyage of Sinbad 5. Thirteenth Warrior 6. Dr. Strangelove 7. The Matrix 8. Legends of the Fall 9. Mask of Zorro 10. Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
Since I had posted my top comfort films earlier I tried to think outside my normal lists or lists that everyone would automatically create. So these are my additional 14 favourites. Feel free to post yours.
1. To Kill A Mockingbird 2. Ten Commandments 3. Dark City 4. Blood of Heroes 5. Back to the Future 6. Robocop 7. Map of the Human Heart 8. Jumanji 9. Three Amigos 10 The One 11. Cutting Edge 12. Goldfinger 13. Hoosiers 14. The Great Escape
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
