Very nice list! Several of those I'd pick also. I'd also add:

THE NINTH GATE
SESSION 9
FORTY GUNS
TWO FAMILY HOUSE

Rupert Pupkin said...

Shut, how could I forget FORTY GUNS! Great call! I like those others as well! Haven't seen TWO FAMILY HOUSE, yet, but it intrigues me.

This post mage me feel terrible -- I saw only two films from this list... I enjoyed reading it though.

Cinema Du Meep said...

oooh excellent list, RP!

All great. Nice job!

Hal said...

Great list as always. I'd have a few adds:

EIGHT MEN OUT
NORTH DALLAS FORTY
92 IN THE SHADE

Actually, thinking of that last one, you could do a Warren Oates triple and add CHINA 9, LIBERTY 37 and TWO LANE BLACKTOP.

Rupert Pupkin said...

Lesya-Thanks for reading! I'm sure there are several films here you'd enjoy!

CDM-Much appreciated amigo!

HAL_ I had NORTH DALLAS FORTY and TWO LANE on a couple previous lists last week or I'd have included them. 92 IN THE SHADE is a great call and I shouldn't have left that off. Slipped my mind.

I did this once somewhere and will look for my list (5000 Fingers of Dr. T anyone?), but first I'll have my "brackets" list, from "Earth vs. the Flying Saucers" to "The People vs. Larry Flint."

Bryan H said...

As always Rupert, a fantastic list. Nice to see Transylvania 6-5000 as honorable mention. I would add The Third Man, one of my all-time favorites.

Shiftless said...

Zero Effect - nice! I'd also chip-in with The Dirty Dozen, Argento's Cat O'Nine Tails and With Six You Get Eggroll.

SteveQ said...

Here's mine! Enjoy.

Rupert Pupkin said...

STEVE-Love the brackets list idea and also your Doctors With Extra Body Parts list! Nicely done!

Bry- Good call on the THIRD MAN, just slipped my mind. Funny how TRANSYLVANIA 6-5000 didn't though! I've got the theme song in my head now!
SHIFTLESS-Still need to see CAT O NINE TAILS for sure! Haven't thought of WITH SIX YOU GET EGGROLL for decades! Cute film!

Where was this list a couple days ago! I just hosted a bar trivia game where all the answers had numbers. I really wracked my brain thinking of 20 good movies with numbers. Great list!

Nice list! I chipped in with my very 70's list (simply alphabetical) on my blog.
