Top 10 lists. They’re staid, often repetitive, and are composed of the undeniable consensus classics. They may be personal and true, but rarely are they fun.
So let’s change that. The goal of this thread is to create funny, contradictory, eccentric, yet altogether plausible Top 10 Films lists. The list does not have to resemble your own likings, and does not need to be serious – the point is to have a bit of fun by placing films side by side that normally wouldn’t seem to make sense together, that likely wouldn’t be favored by the same person, that contradict each other in humorous ways, or that very simply create funny contrasts. If the list is too outlandish, it won’t seem funny. The one other catch is you must only use films you’ve seen.
I’ll start. This is the Top 10 list of Herman Schmieltoast.
1. “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre”
2. “Zabriskie Point”
3. “Apollo 13”
4. “Zazie dans le Métro”
5. “The Truman Show”
6. “The Little Mermaid”
7. “Blue Velvet”
8. “Scenes from a Marriage”
The list makes more sense that most. At least SOME of the films on it are quite good. Apart from Zabriskie Point which is total tripe.
