Here is the next part in my Top 100 Favorite Movies series. Not sure how I should start each part of these except with the next film on the list. If anyone has an idea for how I should introduce these posts please comment.
At Number 90: Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
One of the most underrated movies of 2011, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows very much impressed me. While I found the previous Sherlock Holmes movie lacking, this far exceeded the original with better action, mystery, humor, and plot twists. Robert Downy Jr. as usual the role of Sherlock Holmes and Hans Zimmer soundtrack captured the feel of the movie perfectly.
At Number 89: X-Men
Not only did X-Men start the new wave of comic book films like The Avengers, The Dark Knight, and Spider-Man, it started them off with a bang. X-Men has aged surprising well and proved that Marvel's properties could make money. Although it does not reach the quality that many comic book movies now have due to its lower budget, it showed that comic book movies could work on the big screen in the 21st Century.
At Number 88: How to Train Your Dragon
At Number 87: The Adventures of Robin Hood
The oldest film on this list, The Adventures of Robin Hood is pure fun and entertainment. Errol Flynn owns the role of Robin Hood unlike anyone before or since, and the film holds up well considering it is over 70 years old. The production value of the sets are top notch and the action is some of the best from the era.
At Number 86: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
The first but certainly not the last Harry Potter movie to make the list. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is one of the most underrated Harry Potter movies in the series, featuring some of the best art design from the franchise. The Half-Blood Prince is slower and less action-packed than the Order of the Phoenix, and does an excellent job in character development before final chapter the Deathly Hallows.
At Number 85: The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
Featuring two of my favorite actors James Stewart and John Wayne, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance is one of famous western director John Ford's many great westerns. Although it lacks much western action, it is more a great classic western story about the characters standing up for what they believe.
At Number 84: Tombstone
Tombstone is just one of those really fun westerns based on two of history's most famous gunfighters, Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp. There are so many memorable lines and awesome gunfights, it is just an all around fun and entertaining flick. Plus Val Kilmer's amazing performance as Doc Holliday really was the core of the movie's success.
At Number 83: Field of Dreams
Even though some may consider it overrated, Field of Dreams is my favorite baseball movie. It incorporates baseball into the movie without any of the flaws that most baseball movies have. As a baseball fan, I love seeing all of the old time baseball players out in the field at the end. Also it is a fantastic fantasy film as well.
At Number 82: Rio Bravo
Another great John Wayne western, Rio Bravo took a classic western concept about a Sheriff in a western town and made it original and fresh. Dean Martin gives one of, if not, his best performance of is career as the conflicted alcoholic Dude (yes that was his name and it is an awesome name).
At Number 81: Batman: Under the Red Hood
Based on the comic book of the same name, Batman: Under the Red Hood is one of DC animation's very best. Although the voice for Batman could have been much better, the film makes up for it in stunning action set pieces and a surprisingly deep ending, I was on the-edge-of-my-seat during the last 15 minutes.
