    Good thread TS.

    I would definitely have Million Dollar Baby on that list and the Ruben Hurricane Carter movie with Denzel W., even though it's probably not strictly a boxing movie. Cinderella Man was a great boxing flick too.


    I was thinking about The Hurricane, but it really isn't a boxing movie at all. And I really hate Million Dollar Baby. Cinderella Man was outstanding. If this were a top six list, I'd probably have put it at number six.

    A: You picked Ray over everything else? Half of these wouldn't have even made my list of the same subject. No Lawrence Of Arabia, no Papillon, no Spartacus? Not even The Elephant Man... I Liked Walk The Line better than Ray anyways.

    I'm going the opposite way, Top five best FICTIONAL characters from modern film:

    1: Indiana Jones
    2: James Bond
    3:Tony Montana
    4: Jeff Lebowski
    5: Tyler Durden

    I hate this list except for Indiana Jones. How about top five fictional films intended to look like non-fiction? 1. This Is Spinal Tap 2. Zelig 3. Best In Show 4. Borat 5. The Old Negro Space Program

    How can you hate my list and yet offer no alternatives? [​IMG] Seems rather unsportsmanlike considering the nature of this thread. Speaking of "Best in show" Here are the top five best "racks" in Hollywood. 1: Jennifer Connelly 2: Monica Bellucci 3: Salma Hayek 4: Halle Berry 5: Jessica Biel

    What about Scarlett Johansen and Eva Green?

    I'm typing on an iPhone in the airport so a new list will have to wait.

    What, no Pam Anderson?[​IMG]

    Today's top five Hollywood douchebaguettes (the list will change by tomorrow as new challengers emerge):

    1) Britney Spears (top spot for involving her kids)
    2) Lindsay Lohan
    3) Paris Hilton
    4) Nicole Richie
    5) Pam Anderson (just to "round out" the list. She just got married *again*, to the guy who "starred" in the Paris Hilton sex tape and posted it on the internet)

    It's a sad, sad day when Paris only ranks third....

    Agreed, re: Eva Green. edit, re: Thinman's list. I would make room for that annoying survivor girl on the View and remove Pam A. Top 5 things I've been promised by television and movies to have in the near future but still haven't appeared: 1. All in one media device that works as a decent phone and fits on my wrist 2. Flying cars 3. Android lovers 4. No need for money 5. Personal jetpack

    I really just can't see taking any of my selections off the top five to replace them with Eva Green. Maybe I'm crazy.
    This has recently been released in China... its only a matter of 20 years or so until it finds its way stateside [​IMG] http://www.brandish.tv/2007/08/cect-w100-wrist.html

    What's the difference between a flying car and a small plane? And who the hell wants to bang a robot?

    Top five things it's better to pay for in cash:

    1 - Drugs (illicit)
    2 - Housekeeping Services
    3 - Gratuities
    4 - Coffee (nothing more annoying than waiting for the shmuck paying with his debit card)
    5 - Anything on the street

    Significant omission would be a hoverboard, which I might prefer over getting rid of cash.

    Along with the Back to the Future nod earlier, top five MJfox movies:

    1. Back to the Future
    2. Teen Wolf
    3. BTF II
    4. The Frighteners
    5. Secret of My Success

    >>What's the difference between a flying car and a small plane?

    A small plane needs a runway. A flying car takes off from my driveway (or even better, a cool jukebox car park).

    >>And who the hell wants to bang a robot?

    Android sex, properly done, would leave you none the wiser.

    >>Significant omission would be a hoverboard, which I might prefer over getting rid of cash.

    With a jetpack you can simply strap a normal board to your feet and hover til you puke.

    btw, I'd put SoMS over BTFII.

    To continue an MJ theme (I'd put Frighteners at second and Teen Wolf DEAD last, fwiw)

    Top Five Michael Jordan Plays

    1. Against the Knicks, he jukes out all four defenders on his side of the court, winds up dunking on Patrick Ewing.
    2. With the Wizards, clearly not the same player he once was, he hustles back on defense and blocks a layup with two hands, pinning it against the backboard.
    3. Reverse dunk on Manute Bol
    4. His dunk off of a Scottie Pippen free throw miss - watching it on tv, he comes flying into the picture and slams it home.
    5. His deep, deep three against the Knicks in the playoffs. Not a particularly important shot, but his form on what is about a forty-foot jumpshot is perfect - exactly the same form he uses from fifteen feet. It showed an amazing amount of coordination and strength.

    I feel the hang in the air, right-to-left switch hands, layup should be in here, as well as "The Shot", and probably the 1998 game winner against Utah. But this is admittedly a tough list to make.

    Top 5 current NBA shooting guards:
    1. Kobe Bryant
    2. Dwayne Wade
    3. Vince Carter
    4. Allen Iverson (counting him as a SG here since he played opposite Steve Blake last year)
    5. Joe Johnson

    Note: I'm not counting Lebron, Arenas, Paul Pierce, or T-Mac as 2-guards.

    "Strippers" NEEDS to be on that list.

    I was thinking the same about the Utah shot.

    Top 5 great things about Utah:
    1) John Stockton
    2) "SLC Punk"
    3) Monument Valley
    4)
    5)

    I don't mean to be Internet Super-Athlete, but the switch-hands-in-the-air shot isn't all that difficult. It IS remarkable that he got up so high, but to switch hands in mid-air like that is pretty common among even small college-level talent. I am...was [​IMG] (getting old sucks) a very average small college player and I did that quite a few times in games (albeit at a slightly lower elevation [​IMG] ) - it works very well if you are a righty driving left on another righty.

    While I agree he was clutch in making "The Shot" and the push-off against Bryon Russell, I really don't think those were spectacular shots if taken out of the context of the playoffs. They were just jumpshots made while being closely guarded.

    I agree with the rest, except I'd categorize Agent Zero as a two-guard and rank him above Iverson.

    You misspelled Dwuh-yawn-nay's name. Dwyane. Strange but true. I think I'd drop that weak ass quitter Vince Carter off the list on GP and add Manu. Top 5 all time guys you want with the ball in their hands at the end of the game. 1. MJ 2. The Hick from French Lick 3. The Mamba 4. The Logo 5. Reggie Miller
