  1. I’m thinking Blade Runner should be #3 bumping Witness off the list.

    Then Fugitive would tie Clear and Present Danger at #5.

    I might switch Star Wars for Empire Strikes Back but that’s just being picky.

  2. I agree that it was tough to not include Fugitive, but Witness has some great lines in it.
