1. Some of the same, but here's my additions.
You could do a poll later and we could all vote for the "best."

Armageddon
Independence Day
The Last Boy Scout
Mission Impossible
Clear and Present Danger
The Hunt for Red October

11. I almost picked "Big Trouble in Little China," but I decided it wasn't a straightforward action pic.
So I didn't. Love that movie, though. One of the top ten funniest I've ever seen. Kurt Russel and John Carpenter should have made every film together.

13. Yeah, I thought about that.
I'd consider traditional war movies their own catagory.

14. Wargames...
Wargames
Failsafe
Planet of the Apes
Tora! Tora! Tora!
Papillon
Rocky
Star Wars
French Connection
Mad Max
Jaws

Only the originals-- no remakes. An off the cuff list, but eye opening to me-- one from the 80's. The rest prior to that. Nothing within the past 25 years.
