The Guardian: Top 10 Action Movies

Self really loves The Guardian’s film blog.  The articles are meaty.  They make self want to leave comments.

Tonight, she lands on their “Top 10 Action Movies” list, and is sort of loving that it begins with “The Last of the Mohicans.”  She totally agrees with the inclusion of “Die Hard” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” Why is She loves Cary Grant in “North by Northwest” but doesn’t think ANY Hitchcock movie belongs in a list of Top 10 action movies.  All of Hitchcock’s movies were about suspicion. The action is merely incidental.

Naturally, when self is dissatisfied with a list, she is compelled to make up her own.

For instance, she doesn’t understand why none of the Bourne movies made it into The Guardian’s list.

She also thinks “The Raid: Redemption,” a very violent, bloody, but fascinating movie from Indonesia should be on the list.

What about “The French Connection”?

What about “The Road Warrior”?

What about “Speed”?

Let’s see, self’s Top 10 Action Movie list would be:

  1. The Last of the Mohicans
  2. The Raid:  Redemption
  3. The French Connection
  4. Road Warrior
  5. Speed
  6. Die Hard
  7. Raiders of the Lost Ark
  8. The first Bourne
  9. La Femme Nikita
  10. Mongol

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.

    I would definitely add Terminator 2. Good list, though! Die Hard is also number one on my Christmas movies list.
