I’m throwing another curveball at you this week. Despite teasing Top 10 Westerns at the end of last week’s Top 10, I decided I needed to watch more of those before compiling that list. So instead I’m going with something very different- Top 10 Rescue Movies, with Chris Pine’s The Finest Hours coming out this weekend. My criteria for this list was pretty simple; any movie that I see as a movie involving a rescue of some sort. Some notable movies are missing. For example, you won’t find Die Hard on this list, something I’m sure will shock all of you since I usually don’t miss an opportunity to put Die Hard on any list. However, I’ve never viewed that as a rescue movie despite the fact that it technically would be. Anyway let’s get to the list:
With the release of the pretty terrible looking 5th Wave starring Chloe Grace Moretz this weekend, this week’s top 10 will focus on the Top 10 Alien Invasion Movies of all time. I thought about including The Avengers but I’m not sure I’d consider that an alien invasion movie. I mean aliens invade but that isn’t really the focus. If that were the case several other superhero movies would fall under this category (like Man of Steel). So I’ll just leave superhero movies out altogether. Other than that, this one kind of speaks for itself, so let’s get started:
Top 10 lists will be a list of 10 movies that will be published once a week and will either have to do with a movie coming out that week or just what I want to do at the time.
It’s a quiet week at the movie theaters in terms of new releases (no doubt the calm before the Hunger Games storm), so I couldn’t come up with a suitable Top 10 list this week based on those movies. So instead I’m going to visit my favorite genre and era of movies and go with Top 10 ’80s action movies. This is also my first post-Liebster Award nomination list so I hope all of my new readers and followers enjoy. This was by far one of the hardest lists yet to narrow down.
10. Beverly Hills Cop
– It features Eddie Murphy in his best movie role and is filled with action and comedy. It very much deserves a spot.
