Take Three

Instead of starting off the new year with a regular review, I thought I'd switch it up and introduce a new segment I'm going to call "Take Three." The segment lists a number of categories and I give three answers to each category off the top of my head. These answers are in no particular order. What are we waiting for? Let's do it.

Sequels That Never Happened, But Should Have
1. Buckaroo Bonzai Against The World Crime League
2. The Rocketeer 2
3. ID4Ever (Independence Day sequel)

Most Satisfying Cinematic Endings
1. Shawshank Redemption
2. Rocky III
3. Field of Dreams

Top Historical Films

1. Gladiator
2. Glory
3. The Three Muskateers

Best Foreign Films
1. City of God
2. Slumdog Millionaire
3. Pan's Labyrinth

Best Fourth Installments In A Franchise
1. Live Free or Die Hard
2. Rambo
3. The Enforcer (Dirty Harry)

Most Consistent Franchises
1. Back To The Future
2. Lord of the Rings
3. Die Hard

Favorite Performances
1. Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday in Tombstone
2. Humphrey Bogart as Philip Marlowe in The Big Sleep
3. Jack Nicholson as Col. Nathan R. Jessup in A Few Good Men

You see how this works. Here's the thing - I'm going to need you guys to help me come up with new category names and as soon as I get enough, I'll put together another Take Three (I'm thinking like once a month.) Sometimes I'll recycle categories, but I'd like to have your ideas so I don't have to. Let's hear what you've got - Worst Eddie Murphy Movie? Best Soundtrack? The floor is yours. Until next time...

So glad to see Slumdog Millionaire on you list.
Lets have a few giggles and throw in a Top Musicals category.
