585-- The Wrong Man (1956). Hitchcock directs Henry Fonda as a man who is mistakenly wanted for a number of robberies. Vera Miles plays his wife and Anthony Quayle his lawyer.

586-- Saboteur (1942). My last Hitchcock pick for now. Robert Cummings plays a man wrongly wanted for setting a fire that kills his friend at the factory they work at. As usual in a Hitckcock thriller he has to prove his own innocence. Otto Kruger plays the baddie. Before there was the iconic scene in North By Northwest set on Mount Rushmore there was the much lesser known scene in this film set on the Statue Of Liberty.

587) Eyes Without A Face ( 1960 )( Lucas )

Had I seen this movie earlier, it would have made the Top 500 .. Eyes is one that I had heard about for a long long time and finally saw for the first time just recently .. Haunting, disturbing and definitely groundbreaking and influential ..

1960 was a turning point for horror ... I actually have another 1960 supposed classic all linedup for this weekend for a first time viewing .. But of the 1960 horror films on this list - Psycho, Peeping Tom and Eyes Without A Face - these three films changed the course of horror forever, and for the better

495. Babes In Toyland/March of the Wooden Soldiers (goose)

A Laurel and Hardy classic, it's set in the World of Mother Goose.  I remember being fascinated with it in the same way I was with Wizard of Oz.  Good fun!


I love this choice !!!  

A holiday favorite when I was a kid, and to this day, still a favorite
This movie is a wild ride. It's so bizarre. That monkey mouse creature always put a smile on my face. Crazy stuff. I'm embarrassed I didn't think of this movie.

588) Into the Wild (goose)

This is one of those movies I can watch it over and over.  The compelling true story of a young man that gives everything away to live on the road as Alexander Supertramp.  Circumstances and naivete lead to his demise, but the in two years leading up to his death he lives more than most people in the Western World likely do their whole lives.

Great soundtrack, too.

590) Cabaret (1972)

I'm kind of surprised this one hasn't been mentioned yet. It stars Liza Minelli and takes place in Berlin in the early 30's during the rise of the Nazi party.  I only saw it once but it's a great film. https://en.wikipedia...aret_(1972_film)

591-- Citizen X (1995). Solid entry in the biographical serial killer genre based on the late Soviet-era predator. Western stars play the main parts in this HBO film. Jeffrey DeMunn (Dale from the Walking Dead) is the killer, along with Stephen Rea, Donald Sutherland and Max von Sydow.

592-- The Magnificent Ambersons (1942). Orson Welles' second film is almost as great as Citizen Kane, despite major edits by the studio and having it's ending changed from somber to happy without the director's approval.

593) Prometheus ( Rutlefan )

The movie many love to hate. There are many things about the movie that could have been done so much better IMHO, but neverthess, I still love it for what is good about it. The opening scene, from the title sequence flying over an Icelandic landscape (IIRC) through the alien's self-sacrifice is wonderful. If Ridley had stayed with that majestic, poetic tenor throughout the movie, instead of prominently featuring some idiotic characters and plot twists, he might have made a classic. As it is, I can overlook the bad and and enjoy the good, and I think there's a lot of good. Also, the deleted scenes fill in some of the plot holes. I don't mind plot holes though; in real life we don't grasp everything; why would we expect a coherent narrative based on a 2,000 year-old archaeological find on an alien planetoid where everything is understood and explained after about 1/2 a day of investigation? It's the stupid characters, stupid decisions, and occasionally pointless implausibility -- e.g., alien ship falls from sky after gaining 3,000 ft of altitude and just happens to land just so, rolling over what's her face, who proves to be just slightly more nimble than the guy in Austin Powers who's run over by the slow-moving steam roller -- which I agree is somewhat confounding. Regardless, visually the movie rocks, and the soundtrack is beautiful at times.

594) Austin Powers ( Rutlefan )

A classic! Hard to believe it almost made it to 600s. Favorite scene was deleted, oddly enough, that being the Fendi briefcase scene:

598) Bladerunner 2049 ( Rutlefan )

Like Arrival, directed by Denis Velleneuve. Another success (though not at the box office unfortunately; no accounting for taste). I didn't think it perfect but I thought it beautiful. I hope he returns to sci-fi from time to time.

599) Crumb (1994)

I saw this a long time ago(late 90's). It was a very good documentary about american cartoonist Robert( R )Crumb. Some of his most well known art includes the "Cheap Thrills" album cover by Big Brother and the HOlding CO(Janis Joplin's old band), Fritz the Cat, Keep on Trucking and Zap comix. To be honest I don't remember much about this film(having only seen it once) but I remember thinking it was well done(as well as entertaining).
