Hi hhard17,

Thank you for adding the discussion link. It works properly.

Thank you also for updating the capitalization of the title.

By the way, if you wish to find additional films you can adjust the minimum rating and the minimum number of votes.

Hi and welcome to the poll board. 'Good poll and it's well constructed.

The list is also a very good list with some very good films, which is why I'm having trouble deciding. : )    (Bonnie & Clyde, North by Northwest, The Fugitive, The Badlands...)

Might I be so bold as to suggest "The Empire Strikes Back?" If, that is, you aren't perchance frightened of its dominating the popular vote.

Glad to take it into consideration, but I'm not quite sure it really fits in, I guess Leia and co. are on the run from Vader (and his bounty hunters), but it's really more like preparing to fight back at the Empire, right? Meanwhile Luke is training to fight Vader and does (sorry if such a slight simplification doesn't do it justice). It certainly is an excellent adventure, I'm just not sure it fits in. Thank you though.
