Rise and Shine

Good Morning, Delaware County!

So, while the Phillies bats were sleeping last night, I was able to check out a show put on by the American Film Institute that counted the Top 10 movies in different kinds of genres. You know, the Top 10 westerns, Top 10 comedies, Top 10 gangster films, etc.
All the usual suspects were there, including the 'Usual Suspects.' Of course, we were going to see 'The Godfather,' 'Raging Bull,' '2001,' blah, blah, blah.
The thing about great movie lists is pretty much everybody agrees what the great movies are and they are all going to be there. Sure, it was interesting to see some of the stars of the movies talk about them, but they were quick interviews and we were moving on to the next number.
There are movie lists everywhere nowadays. We have the best movie kiss, the best movie villains, the best movie heroes. Again, blah, blah, blah.
So, while thinking about it, we need some new movie lists. So, to help you with your summer viewing lists, here are few.
