The Pink Flamingo Top Ten Movies of All Time


It is Oscar Sunday.  I doubt if I will watch the Oscars.  I never do.  Fact is, The Pink Flamingo hasn’t been to a movie since I saw Star Trek! It is not because I don’t like movies.   I do.  The problem is that it is absolutely miserable to go to them around here.  I’ve managed to get myself into the very bad habit of downloading them off iTunes.

Everyone tries to come up with their list.

In order:

  1. Field of Dreams
  2. Philadelphia Story
  3. Giant & To Kill a Mockingbird
  4. How the West Was Won
  5. Duck Soup
  6. Casablanca
  7. Star Wars (the original)
  8. The Quiet Man
  9. Bringing Up Baby
  10. Dr. No

It is a rather eclectic list.  These are ones I left off my list.

  • A Night at the Opera
  • To Have and to Have Not
  • Hatari
  • Singing in the Rain
  • Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
  • Ben Hur
  • The Hallelujah Trail
  • Captain Blood
  • 2001:  A Space Odyssey
  • The Desk Set

Those who know know The Pink Flamingo, know that I like really bad movies.  We’re talking movies that are so bad people cringe when you mention them.  My top ten list of those, that many may consider pathetic:

  1. Wyatt Earp (I think it is an excellent movie – from a historical point of view)
  2. Water
  3. Lake Placid
  4. King Solomon’s Mines
  5. Ma and Pa Kettle
  6. Tarzan’s New York Adventure
  7. Demolition Man
  8. Drowning Mona
  9. Down Periscope
  10. The Lost World – 1960

  1. I never watch the Oscars. I’m bored to death and usually go to sleep. I haven’t watched them in years. I used to go to the movies frequently but Katrina washed all the theaters away. They have not been rebuilt, so I don’t drive miles to see a movie. If a movie is too long, it puts me to sleep. Some of the movies I always fall asleep in are, How the West was won, The Ten Commandments, Exodus. I have never seen these movies in their entirety. I guess I’m just not a movie fan.
