  1. I was happy to see that Hoosiers made you list or I would have been disappointed. And I agree,

    I love “A River Runs Through It”, but it is a downer. I remember you did like “The Burbs” and

    “The Goonies”, but I see “Breaking Away” topped the list. I see you managed to get a Paul Newman

    movie in there to keep your mom happy. That was interesting and allowed me to see another

    side of my son and see his inner interests and things he liked and disliked. Thanks for sharing that.
