Top 20 Christmas Movies of All Time

Top 20 Christmas Movies of All Time

Hard to believe the holiday is almost upon us again. It really is astonishing how quickly the years seem to fly by as one gets older. Since December is right around the corner I figured it would be a good time to put together a list of the best Christmas movies of all time. One of our family’s Christmas traditions is watching one or more of these classics over the holidays. Most of these films fall under the G-rated category, but to spice the list up a little I’ve thrown in one or...

Top 21 Best TV Sitcoms of the 2000s

Top 21 Best TV Sitcoms of the 2000s

Sitcom writers in the 2000’s certainly had their work cut out for them. The 80’s saw such classic comedy TV shows as Cheers, The Cosby Show and Night Court. The 90’s followed up that success with juggernauts   like Seinfeld, Frasier and Friends. Not only did writers have to try and live up to the legacy of these legendary shows, but they also had to battle for viewer’s attention against a two-pronged attack that included the increasingly popularity of reality TV shows...

Top 50 Best Rap Songs of All Time

Coming up with a list of the top 50 best rap songs of all time is guaranteed to spark some controversy. People are passionate about music, and few things in life inspire more raw emotion in our lives than listening to our favorite songs. With that in mind I’ve tried to remain as objective as possible in crafting this list of the best hip hop songs ever, but my own biases have no doubt slipped in. Feel free to roundly criticize my choices in comments. Here are my picks for the greatest...

Top 50 Action Movies of All Time

Top 50 Action Movies of All Time

Coming up with a list of the top 50 best action movies of all time was a lot simpler than making a list of the greatest movies ever made. With action movies good acting is merely a bonus and any Oscar nominations, let alone wins, are particularly unexpected. All that matters is that the pace of the movie is fast and furious and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Cutting edge special effects are an important factor, but not an absolute must. Violence, explosions and car chases are all criteria...

Top 50 Halloween Movies of All Time

Top 50 Halloween Movies of All Time

With October 31st fast approaching I figured I’d better get my butt in gear and put together my list of the best Halloween movies of all time. I am a huge movie buff, and horror in particular is a favorite genre of mine. However, though horror movies are the most popular at this time of year, I know that families also like to sit down together and watch a Halloween favorite or two once the kids have returned from pillaging the neighborhood for candy. With that in mind I’ve tried to...

Top 50 Romantic Comedies of All Time

Top 50 Romantic Comedies of All Time

As always when I compile one of these lists I expect this countdown of the top 50 best romantic comedies of all time to stir up some healthy controversy. Not only is there a wide gulf in what people find funny, but now you throw in the romantic part of the equation as well. What constitutes romance to one might seem completely cheesy to another. However, that is the fun part of making these lists. It is always interesting to see the perspectives of others that get left as comments. So if you...

Top 40 Funniest Movies of the 90s

Top 40 Funniest Movies of the 90s

Though I grew up in the 80s, and my first movie memories are from that decade it wasn’t until the 90s that I started to earn my own money, and attend the movies on a regular basis. It also wasn’t until that decade that I was finally old enough to attend movies that were rated R, and once I crossed that barrier movie viewing got a whole lot more interesting. Many of the movies of this list of the top 40 best comedy movies of the 90s earned that restricted rating, and though Bill...

Top 20 TV Sitcoms of the 90s

After the enormous response I received after writing my article, Best Sitcoms of All Time I decided to get a little more specific and come up with a list of the Top 20 best sitcoms of the 90s. This list is, of course, far more contemporary, and I hope this time around the majority of the readers will be able to identify with the shows I’ve listed here. The 90s was another decade that produced many of the greatest sitcoms ever made, following up the success of the 80s that brought us such...

Top 25 Funniest SNL Skits of All Time

Top 25 Funniest SNL Skits of All Time

Originally my plan was to make this a list of the top 10 best SNL skits of all time, but as I started scribbling down my favorite sketches from years gone by I found that narrowing them down to just 10 was a daunting task. The show has been making people laugh for well over three decades now, and there are too many hilarious skits in their archive to stop at just 10. Ultimately, I decided to expand the list to 25 entries, but even so I was forced to omit literally dozens of classics. I’m...

Top 10 Swedish Hockey Players of All Time

Top 10 Swedish Hockey Players of All Time

Though Swedish hockey players had made their way over to the NHL before, it wasn’t until Borje Salming arrived in the 1970s that we started to see Swedish hockey players arrive en masse in the NHL. Since that time there have been an ever increasing number of Swedish hockey stars crossing to match their talent against players from the best hockey nations in the best hockey league in the world. With each passing year more and more Swedish hockey players can be found among the NHL’s...

Top 10 Russian Hockey Players of All Time

Top 10 Russian Hockey Players of All Time

No one in Canada knew just how good the Soviets were at hockey until we were stunned by their skill and their speed at the 1972 Summit Series. Canadians watched in open-mouthed dismay as the crafty Russians skated circles around our boys on our home soil. Our team may have come into the series brimming with cocky self-assurance, but by the midway point of the series our team, and we as a nation, had been thoroughly disabused of the notion that beating the Soviets was going to be a walk in the...
