Ten Top Ten

- 0 Comment(s)

Movie maniac that I am, I recently stayed up till 1:00 A.M. on a work night to watch AFI's (American Film Institute) ten top ten. Arranged into 10 categories, they then chose what they felt were the top 10 movies in each. While I don't necessarily agree with all of the choices nor their ordering (and there are lots of such lists), I really enjoyed the show and couldn't wait to see what the number one choice was for each genre. To see the winners follow this link to AFIand have some fun rating it against your own choices. I am pleased to tell you that CPL currently has an impressive 84 out of 100 of the winning titles and due to very high interest our Collections Dept is acquiring the remaining 16! Find them in our catalogue by doing a keyword search using dvd and the title; i.e. dvd snow white and the seven dwarfs. A little bit of trivia--multiple winners include Jimmy Stewart appearing in 6 of the top 100, with Tom Hanks, Paul Newman and Grace Kelly appearing in 3 each. You'll likely see some of these titles make it into our Movie Maniac reviews in the future. There are a lot of great choices here--enjoy.
