So many films missed the cut off date, for example A Bug’s Life (1998), Tarzan (1999), The Iron Giant (1999) and Toy Story 2 (1999). Good year for kids films, but I am unwilling to change the almighty rules of the top ten. For I have spoken my gibberish! Part 2 actually got the most comments of any of my posts; previous was my Avengers 2012 review. On to the Results of these powerhouse kids films, dun dun dun dun!

Were back to the top ten’s and this could be the last of 2000-2010, so let me make it a good one. Kid’s films, mainly animations which let’s face it are the best. I am a sucker for these films as I grew up with a few of the earlier ones and watched the later ones with my cousins so I didn’t seem weird. So many films missed the cut off date, for example A Bug’s Life (1998), Tarzan (1999), The Iron Giant (1999) and Toy Story 2 (1999). Good year for kids films, but I am unwilling to change the almighty rules of the top ten. For I have spoken my gibberish! You know the rules but still at the end vote for favourite film from part 1, then in part 2 being released Monday do the same, then after a while I will post the results.
Tags: 1945, Academy Award, Action, Adam Beach, Battle Of Iwo Jima, Clint Eastwood, Combat, favourite scene, Flags of Our Fathers & Letters from Iwo Jima (2006) Review, Flags of Our Fathers (2006), Flags of Our Fathers Review, General Tadamichi Kuribayashi, Invasion, Japanese, Jesse Bradford, Ken Watanabe, Letters from Iwo Jima (2006), Letters from Iwo Jima (2006) Review, Military, Review, Ryan Phillipe, USA, WW2 warfare tactics
It’s a double review, not going to do this very often and I am only doing it for these two because they are made as a companion to each other. Both of these films show a very realistic portrayal of the battle of Iwo Jima and deserve great praise for acting and visuals when considering the relatively low budget of the two films. In saying that I find Letters from Iwo Jima better to watch and I also view it as a much better film in general.

Since the ‘Expendables 2’ is coming out next month I thought it would be fun to do ‘the best of’ for the three biggest action stars, done Schwarzenegger a while ago and will link that below, this is obviously Willis’s best films and next week I will be doing Stallone’s best films. Just to point out that although films like ‘Pulp Fiction’ are excellent Willis was not the main character so will not be on the list. But that won’t hold back Bruce because he has done some great films mainly action but also some great Sci-Fi which makes me a fan.

Now just to state that originally I had a list of 38 comedy films and then had to cut it down to just 10 films, so I know people will be asking why their favourite film isn’t on here and believe me it was hard to cut 28 of my favourite comedy films off the list. But the films on the list are the best of the best and deserve your laughs.

This is my top ten horror list I hope you enjoy. Bring it on horror films! You don’t scare me, you think because I wet myself in the cinema or nearly ripped the seat arms off means I am scared, well it doesn’t. Just because after watching Event Horizon at the age of 7 I had to go to therapy doesn’t mean you scared me horror films. Oh My God what the hell is that, arghghhhh it’s got me! Where’s my shot gun damn it! OH GOD NOT MY BRAIN…
