    Default Top 200 Movies - Add to the list

    I like to watch a good movie when time permits whether in the theater or on DVD or Cable even. Here is my list of the best movies I have seen. I'm sure I've missed some good ones so let me know any blatently missed great flicks as I'd like to check them out when I get a chance.

    This list is not in exact order of best movies etc. I try to rate them from 1-10 with a deviation of +/- 1. So to me a 9 could be a 10 or even an 8 as a range. But a 10 would only be a 9 or a 10 to me. So movies that are 7 or higher I definitely recommend to people but movies that are lower I recommend only to fans of the actor or director etc.

    1. Cape Fear (1991) 10
    2. Casino (1995) 10
    3. Consenting Adults (1992) 10

    Hey! Nice additions. Thanks for putting your own ratings on them too.

    Clint Eastwood has some great movies and I could easily add more of his.
    Aliens is already on with an 8
    I try to avoid the chick flick date movies unless they are extremely good

    I'll defiantely need to look up a few of the rest when I get a chance.

    Thanks! Keep 'em coming
