Meaning. Flipping around on cable, start to watch and are either blown away or it goes into one of your Top 10's.

I have some that were kinda mainstream but I either never heard about it or forgot.

Not my top 10 but still very good.

Donnie Darko, too disturbing for me most of the time but still a very good movie.

Empire Records when i was like 17

Two kinds of movies are shown on TV if you don't get Showtime or HBO,

1.) Crap

2.) Stuff that if you saw it for the first time on TV you would think it sucked because 25 minutes of the film was removed due to censorship and time constraints.

Once Upon A Time In The West came on commercial free on AMC during the wee hours of the morning one time when I was studying in school. I was completely hooked, now one of my Top 5 movies.

3.) Various and sundry old movies

I saw Shane on TCM. Not sure it's in my top 10, but a really good movie.

TCM is a great history lesson and an awesome chance for people to see something they proly would overlook on Netflix.

Scrum great selection. If McKenna's Gold ever comes on. Check it out. Kind of a dif Western at that time with Gregory Peck but ****'s all the way.

By Dawn's Early Light

I think that was the title. About the U.S. getting hit by a nuke and then hitting Russia back when it was the Chinese who launched it.

James Earl Jones, Powers Boothe and about 20 character actors you'd recognize immediately.
