Must-see Movies 1-10

This is a the growing compilation of must-see movies from the chief at trifles. Since he is going one movie per post, and providing excellent commentary, I thought I would compile the movies into one list and give links to the original posts. I will keep an eye on the chief's posts and update the list when new movies arrive. In addition to watching these movies, one must also see the write-up by the chief. Chief, thanks for this list and the commentary (so much better than just a sterile list, numbered 1 to 100!).

Now for the list (read the preliminary comments to #3 for an explanation of the numbering system):

1. The Princess Bride
2. Shawshank Redemption
3. The Usual Suspects
4. The Breakfast Club
5. Fried Green Tomatoes
6. The Conversation
7. Glory
8. Dr. Strangelove
9. Delicatessen
10. Empire of the Sun

call me ishmael. i mean, david. or chief. i think my grandpa used to call me that. if any of your readers can tell me the origin of "chief gordon" he or she will win a special prize. (my wife excluded.)

i don't mean to say my wife was a possible prize. well, she is a prize, but i already won her. i meant to say my wife is excluded from the little game, that probably isn't very fun for anyone but me.
