Title: Top 100 TV Movies
Post by: JaseSF on February 14, 2017, 10:29:27 PM
Hey why not try and do a list of the top 100 good TV movies? I kind of misread another thread on here and recalled a bunch of quality TV movies...can we come up with a 100? Maybe keep it to adding 1 at a time.  I'll start with one previously mentioned there by the one and only RC...

1. Duel (1971)

I don't really have a problem with adding them as they are basically overlong TV movies pretty much...

9. Dune (2000)

Sure it's obvious that the desert scenes were shot in the studio. Even so, it's probably the best adaptation of Dune we'll ever get. In particular, Ian McNiece was way better than the guy they had for the Baron in the Lynch film.

11.DRACULA (1973) with Jack Palance. This was directed by Dan Curtis-which is a logical choice,being as he had such a hit with the Dark Shadows TV show (and film). Palance makes a great Count-I wish he could have taken it to the big screen once Christopher Lee had abandoned the role! Alas.
It was to air-and I was all set for it-the night Nixon resigned!So it was pre-empted right after it had just started! I was so f**king p**sed!  :buggedout:

47) The Paper Man - An interesting early take on the "killer computer" genre and computer hacking. College kids get a credit card by mistake. Luckily the credit card company has a timeshare on their university's computer, so the kids are able to create a fake account for their own use. Then the computer starts trapping them in the lab and rigging equipment to do them in. Is the paper man trying to become real?

50) Dinotopia

This seemed like a big deal when I was in 6th grade. It got a short-lived series as a sequel, so it probably was a big deal. It's a little long, & sometimes slow, but it does immerse you in a world all its own. And it has dinosaurs. That's always a plus.  :smile:

Oddly, enough, so do I. You can't go wrong with a cast that included . . .
Clint Walker -- James Wainwright -- Carl Betz -- Neville Brant -- Robert Urich -- and James A. Watson, jr.
