    Alien with the perfect score. Looks like both Aliens and Alien are going to be powerhouses in their respective decades.

    Without Lady Snowblood, there would be no Kill Bill. It's one of the best assassin-revenge-killer movies out there.

    It's another gem that's on HBO Max. Some people poo-poo HBO Max, but it's a great service with a hugely varied library. It's probably my fav service right now.

    I was trash talking HBO Max a few months ago too but damn they have a LOTTA great stuff on there. I've been using that service almost exclusively for the past 2 weeks.

    Alien has this shit on lockdown.

    "The Cowboys" and "The Sting" should have a few more votes. Especially, "The Sting". It should be right up there with, "Alien" in the 21-22 vote category IMHO I mean, Paul Newman (predominantly a pre-1970 actor) and Robert Redford, (Mr. Post 1970 and beyond Actor/Director).

    Not to mention one of "The Duke's" final films and one of the few in which he dies!!! "The Duke" is a Hollywood Icon if there ever was one for sure and should garner a little more in the way of votes just out of respect, no?
