Rank These Five Movies: Volume 1

A two-parter:

First, select any movie that you enjoyed. You can select multiple movies (whether it be all five, one, or none -- don't like 'em, don't give 'em a yes vote ).

Rank these movies -- I picked them for no particular reason, but interested in how others see them. Don't rank any you haven't seen.

In no particular order:

Three Kings
North by Northwest
Ghost Dog
The Talented Mr. Ripley
Glengarry Glen Roos



My rankings:

North by Northwest
Ghost Dog
Glen Garry Glen Ross
Three Kings
Talented Mr. Ripley

I enjoy them all. I guess there's sort of a vague theme running through them.

I like the 4 I've seen pretty well, in this order

1. North by Northwest
2. Three Kings
3. Talented Mr. Ripley
4. Glengarry Glen Ross

Never seen Ghost Dog, as I've seen several Jim Jarmusch movies, and I've never really liked any of them.

That's my order too... except that I have seen Ghost Dog, and it's WAY down at the bottom (2/10)... I like all the others though, and of course, North by Northwest is a masterpiece.

North By Northwest - Easily... This one is in a league of it's own compared to the rest of the choices...

Followed by... Glengarry Glen Ross

And a 3 way tie for the rest, none of them impressed me much...
