Temporal Top Ten – 1967


top ten

Number of movies seen from this year – 22
Number of movies reviewed – 17 (including 0 Encore Reviews)

My #1 this year is yet anther film I first saw in my youth and have enjoyed watching it over and over ever since.  The way that the story makes us care for criminals is great all it can get so emotional by the action-packed end of it all.

There have been many attempts at duplicating what this films does, yet none are able to do it as well as they did here.

Update 11 Jul 2017 – Bonnie and Clyde has now been added to the list moving all subsequent entries down accordingly

  1. So…my childhood favourite is The War Wagon. But…hope you are sitting down…because for this year you will be surprised to hear that The Dirty Dozen is, in my opinion, fantastic! Better than The War Wagon. Although…The Good, the Bad and the Ugly…hmmmm 😀
    Cool Hand Luke also great. So, you see…? huh? There is life beyond Westerns…tee hee.

  2. Kudos on seeing 21 movies – but a big razzie on the ones you chose from that list to make your Top 10. I would think that given that number of great films – you’d be able to cull the herd a bit better and more judiciously. You SAW Bonnie and Clyde – and IT DIDN”T MAKE THE CUT? OMG! Cool Hand Luke made it, but Hombre didn’t? The ICONIC The Graduate – another brilliant Mike Nichols film with a star making turn by Dustin Hoffman? The haunting In Cold Blood? Had you not seen any of those movies – I could forgive – but the fact that you did – and they missed the cutoff made by the awful Casino Royale, The Deadly Affair and Mark Twain Tonight – which is NOT a movie – it’s a one man stage play on film – makes it hard for me to take you seriously with this endeavor. Some of your picks are bordering on the ludicrous. I’m a big Dirty Dozen fan – seen it many times – enjoy it every time – not #1. Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner was a Stanley Kramer message picture – meaningful at the time it was made – but dated today. Doesn’t hold up. Loved seeing Tracy & Hepburn together and in love – but still (and Tracy died 2 weeks after filming ended). But any list for 1967 without The Graduate on it, without In Cold Blood, without Bonnie and Clyde – just cannot be taken seriously. (You also need to see Divorce, American Style and Far From the Madding Crowd).
