    3.Die Hard

    4.Nightmare on Elm street 4 dream warriors.( that gd song still sends chills up my spine)

    5.PREDATOR

    6.Blood Sport

    7.Marked for Death

    8.Vacation

    9.Revenge of the Nerds (as an ode to the denizens of sherdog's mayberry lounge)

    10. Clear and Present Danger.

    Clear and Present Danger?

    Hmm. . . I mean, it's cool and all, but I'm not really sure if belongs on a list like this. Especially since I think Patriot Games was better.

    These aren't necessarily my faves but they are important:

    Ghostbusters
    Titanic
    Lord of the Rings
    Toy Story
    Unforgiven
    The Lion King
    Jurassic Park
    Back to the Future

    Pulp Fiction and Scream get honorable mention but they exist as homage to earlier films so they're out.
