    Interesting revelation, albeit a very minor one.

    Major league is one of my favorite flicks- Rene Russo, Tom Berringer are the couple
    Bull Durham is also a favorite. Kevin Costner and Susan Sarandon are the couple

    Tin Cup, Rene Russo and Kevin Costner are the couple. I just thought it was interesting that she ended up in two comedy, sports movies as the female, romantic lead.

    For those younger posters, if you haven't seen "The Warriors", I highly recommend it. One of the coolest NYC films ever made. I think it's iconic

    One gang stuck in the bronx, accused of murdering the leader of all the gangs, has to make their way all the way to Coney Island while being chase by rival gangs. The gangs are super creative and the basis for tons of modern movies.

    This is a list of all the gangs

    https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/...tured-warriors

    Each has a costumer type and fighting style. Choreography is very rough much of the time but there is some really good stuff and some very realistic sequences regarding the mayhem of a king fight.

    It also has one of the most well know scenes. "warriors, come out and play"

    I saw it for the 1st time a few days ago and have watched it 2 more times. I loved the original Top Gun and thought a sequel would tarnish the original movie, I was wrong. Its honestly a top 10 movie for me now

    I would add, The Usual Suspects, Basic and the Generals Daughter in my top 10

    It was better than the original, which Iíve always loved. Itís almost unbelievable how they nailed the feel of the original, hit all the cheesy/nostalgia things, and also gave it a bit more of a developed plot, and ramped the action up several notches

    By no means is it a great movie. It's a really fun movie. Original was better.

    Oh, thereís a bunch of that I thought about adding. I kind of did it on the spot, itís so hard to pick ďwhatís betterĒ

    First Blood, The Thing, the Professional were a few that just missed, and a bunch of others you just mentioned. Itís so tough to cut it down to 10. I should have also added Last of the Mohicans. You reminded me of that one, looking at some similar-ish stuff on your list

    Alien vs. Aliens is tough. I just have to go with 2, itís just badass. And one of the most tense movies ever. Itís pretty much white-knuckle the whole way through

    I also think stuff like Hero, or Crouching Tiger deserves mention as well
