What’s Your TOP Movie In Each Genre?

I think this would make for an interesting ATS MIX Show segment. I have selected the following genres and have listed my favorites in each one. I’m curious to see what the pulse of our intelligent community is when it comes to entertainment, especially movies.

Keep in mind that if you are like me, it will be hard to select your TOP ONE... but throw one out anyway. My criteria is something that I never get tired of watching on DVD.

DRAMA – The Majestic

ACTION/ADVENTURE – The Dark Knight

MILITARY – Uncommon Valor

COMEDY – It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

ROMANTIC – The Notebook

HORROR – Phantasm

SCIENCE FICTION – Forbidden Planet

YOUR TURN!

Dave

FLAG & STAR THE MUTHA!
