My 100 movies (as of 2006 - Pre Netflix) 100 - 91

I created this list back in November 2006, back before I had Netflix. I've watched many movies since, and for simplicity, I'm ignoring them. I have changed about 5 of them from the original list.

Another main thing here, I'm throwing all sequels together as one. I've grouped movies together with their sequels and other movies they are related to.

Four that were on it but didn't make it(and where I had them):
80 - Saving Private Ryan: I love the D-Day invasion of the beach. However Tom Hanks and Matt Damon both kind of stink. The end was kind of boring too compared to the rest of the movie.

78 - Silence of the Lambs - Anthony Hopkins is fantastic as Dr. Lecter. The only problem is that he only has about 10 minutes of screen time.

70 - Boyz In the Hood - It was good to watch once, but just like Schindler's List or Passion of the Christ, it's just not fun to watch again.

65 - The Big Lebowski - There were a lot of amazing moments in this movie. But there is a ton of filler as well. There are scenes of him floating through the air, which are just incredibly boring.

Top 100: Go!

100. Honey I Shrunk the Kids
F-ing teenagers get shrunk to ant size and thrown into their backyard, they fight scorpions and lawnmowers during the trip back to their house. Make out sessions ensue.

"I don't think we're in Kansas anymore, Toto."
"I don't think we're in the food chain anymore, Dorothy."

99. Mission Impossible
Given a Possible mission even though all his teammates are killed, Ethan Hunt must fight to regain his innocence. After he nails his friends wife that is. He's innocent after that.

"There was never any physical evidence I had anything to do with that..that..that exceptional piece of work."

98. Swordfish
Hugh Jackman can do the job of 30 hackers in a quarter of the time. He's faced with a moral dilema. Does he want to save innocent people or get rich? He chooses wrong.

"Too bad! You're gonna die! (gun click) Ha ha, just fucking with you Stan!"

97. Lion King
My favorite Disney movie mainly due to the soundtrack, just slightly above Aladdin. Little lion runs away when his king of the jungle father gets killed by some antelope?

"Yeah, be prepared! We'll be prepared... for what?"
"For the death of the king!"
"What? Is he sick?"
"No, fool. We're going to kill him. Simba too."
"Great idea! Who needs a king? No king, no king, la la la la la la..."
"Idiots! There will be a king!"
"But you said...that"
"I.. will be king. Stick with me, and you'll never go hungry again!"

96. 187
Samuel Jackson works as a teacher at an inner city school. After he gets stabbed, he decides not to take crap from any kids anymore. Hilarity ensues, and murder.

"The only thing you respect is stupidity. Your whole way of life is bullshit! Macho is bullshit!"

95. Waynes World
Mike Myers rockin hippie girlfriend keeps leaving him for other men. He has to prove to her that he isn't a total fuck up. 40 different endings to each movie.

"So, would you like to have dinner one night?"
"Oh, I like to have dinner every night."
"I bet you like to be in control..."
"Yes, like when I was 17, my sister wanted to loan my Def Leppard. I said No way!." "I'm goning to be frank."
"OK. Can I still be Garth?"
"Take me, Garth!"
"Where? I'm low on gas and you need a jacket."

94. Arachnophobia
Two 8 inch queen spiders come to town and start eating people. Everyone blames new doctor Jeff Daniels for biting his patients with venom. Jeff is too scared to prove his innocence.

"He believes he came across one of the offending spiders a couple of hours ago."
"Might you have brought it with you?"
"Actually, he's probably still at the bottom of my shoe. You really can't tell what it is anymore."

93. Dumb and Dumber
Harry and Lloyd find an assload of money. They are so dumb they want to return it. Well not Lloyd(Carrey), since he wants to return it to get laid.

"I'll bet you twenty dollars I can get you gambling before the day is out! I'll give you three to one odds."
"You're on!"
"I'm gonna get ya! I don't know how but I'm gonna get ya."

92. Sixth Sense
Haley Joel Osment sees dead people. Bruce Willis is dead but doesn't realize it for 2 hours because his house is how he left it, and he still eats food and opens doors.

"You know the accident up there? Someone got hurt. A lady. She died."
"Oh, my god. What, you can see her? Where is she?"
"Standing next to my window."

91. Ghost
Typical story - man gets shot by friend, said friend gets rich and tries to sleep with dead friends wife. Demons take friend away. Whoopi Goldberg and Demi Moore make out.

"They're going to kill you, Carl. You and Willie! You're going to be fertilizer. They're gonna bury you right next to Jimmy Hoffa."

20. Vexing Devil

Giving an opponent a choice is never a good idea. However I really feel like it's win win here in the aggressive deck. A 4/3 for one will almost always be worth a card. So the real question is - is it worth a card to deal 4 damage for a red? It's not quite Flame Slash good in a control deck, or as great top deck as Thunderous Wrath but better than Thunderbolt or Lava Axe.

19. Scute Mob

Not a true one drop. But by turn six hopefully you are going get a hydra-like insect that will quickly get insanely huge if not dealt with. My biggest issue is that it doesn't have trample. It's still a great costed creature that can do some work if unchecked. There are lots of ways to give it Trample in Green not named Rancor.

18. Dragonmaster Outcast

And yet another non-true one drop. If you can stay…

My Top 100 One Drop (CC) Creatures (100-81)

One drops are the least important thing in any draft or sealed pool. You shouldn't play them pretty much ever. They typically do little for you, don't fit random cards, or just suck. And why should they, you aren't expected to win the game by turn 1(not counting you Legacy). In constructed, it's a whole different ball game. You have these cheap cards that actually interact with other cards in your deck. Not only that - your selection is a lot wider and if you look deep enough, you can find cards that can really put the pressure on.

The number 100 just kind of worked out. There are approximately 600 one costed creatures, and I honestly only checked out about 400 of them - top half and the very bottom(maybe I trust The Gatherer too much, but I'm always open to suggestions!). I found 95 that I really liked just naturally. The other 5 are included as my bottom 5, but 100 of course just sounded better.
I could have forced myself to get 5 more, but there are essentially…

80. Phyrexian Dreadnought

Illusionary Mask combo aside, a 12/12 Trample for one is certainly an interesting idea. At some point in the game you will have some 1/1s or even 2/2s that you don't need, maybe something get's Pacifism'd. Then you have a real card capable of becoming the largest threat on the board that will end the game in two turns unless dealt with. It does have quite the possibility of ruining your entire game plan if it gets Doom Blade'd or something. There are other ways to abuse it - Torpor Orb, Pandemonium, Fling.

79. Kor Duelist

Requiring equipment for it to be useful is a drawback, but for one mana you get the possibility of a double striking monster. Even if you could give it +2/+0 or heck Loxodon Warhammer then you get a fantastic deal for a single mana. Put it in a deck with the Swords and just go to town. A turn two Bonesplitter will hit for six.

78. Scattershot Archer

Repeated Bitterblossom kill. It is…
