OOooo! A challenge from Michele!

But you know, ya gotta love the movie list thing. So here are my "against type" lists

"Guy" movies that I, as a woman, love

"Chick" flicks I can't stand

And the movies that reduce me to a boneless pile of weeping protoplasm ...

Oh! GEMs (Guy Endeavor Movies) where strong and brave men do dangerous stuff while we girls watch from a safe distance. We coined the phrase after watching "Apollo 13". I said "Sis, can you imagine your sisters and me, or the Troyanns, or any other group of women, looking at the moon and saying: "You know, if we just got organized, I bet we could go up there?" She couldn't.

My list:
Apollo 13
The Great Escape
The Bridge on the River Kwai
Armageddon (I hate myself, but honesty compels)
L.A. Confidential
Das Boot
K-19: the Widowmaker
The Untouchables

Kleenex movies:
It's a Wonderful Life
All This and Heaven, Too
The Cowboys
Armageddon (again)

I have more than a few friends who would put Vanishing Point on their "Kleexex" list because of what those mean-old bulldozers do to that poor, helpless Challenger.
