THE FILM LIST : HEATH SOLO’S TOP 100 FILMS : 80-71

On The Film List : episode 5, Glen (Everyone’s favorite StarWars fan) joined me on to discuss his favorite Top 10 films of all-time.  It was a fantastic podcast and Glen’s formula for picking a top 10 was very interesting.  First, he had to have seen a particular film at least 10 times.  Second, Glen wanted to make sure his list had many different genres.  His picks were selected with that in mind.  For example, at number 7, he wanted a western.  Instead of putting the 3 westerns he liked at number 7, 8, and 9, he selected one, leaving the rest out of the top 10.  “If I didn’t do it that way, I would have had 6 Star Wars films in the top 10.  I wanted variety.”  So Glen selected one film while giving proper honorable mentions to those films that are high on his list, but just not there for his top 10.

Damn, I can only pick 10!

Damn, I can only pick 10!

Glen is a close friend of mind.  I’ve gotten to know him over the past year.    He has a good heart and his an A+ human being.  This is just a film list, but Glen is just one off those friends where he puts you first and himself second.  Yes, he does talk my ear off on Star Wars expanded universe references, but I’ll listen for 5 minutes on who Chewbacca’s cousin is any day of the week.  Especially if it means spending some quality time with my friend.  Thanks for being on the podcast, you’re a good man Charlie Brown.  Even if you are from Cleveland, lol.
