  • Your Great "12" movies...

    I was wondering what everybody's movie favorites are from each of the genres below:

    War

    Sci-Fi

    Humor

    Western

    Thriller

    Action/Adventure

    Historical

    Fantasy

    Horror

    Drama

    Romance

    Classic (pré-80's)

    In some genres it was very difficult to choose and I do believe I must have missed some great ones...

        ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
        All human ills he can subdue,
        Or with a bauble or medal
        Can win mans heart for you;
        And many a blessing know to stew
        To make a megloamaniac bright;
        Give honour to the dainty Corse,
        The Pixie is a little shite.
