Great poll

"The Sting" should be getting a little more respect. And yeah, I'd have liked to have seen "Sneakers", "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" and "House of Games" on the list. I'm glad to see that, at least, another of Mamet's movies is here: "The Spanish Prisoner". Oh, and "The Flim-Flam Man" should be getting some love, too; it's been a long, long time since I saw it, but I'm eagerly waiting for it to hit DVD... if it ever will.

Good poll question. Although, it just occurred to me, which Danny

Good poll question. Although, it just occurred to me, which Danny Ocean are we talking about up there? Sinatra or Clooney? Is it winning because of combined votes? Oh, I love "Ocean's", don't get me wrong! I'm just wondering if maybe they should've specified.

'Sneakers' isn't on this list? Oh sh*t, and I'm obviously not alone in mentioning that one, I see...hehe.

Went Ocean's 11, but Matchstick Men is real close.

When you think about it, The Usual Suspects is an awesome choice! Kevin Spacey pulled the wool over Chazz Palminteri's eyes for the whole flick. Keyser Soze rules!

Also, Phil Alden Robinson's "Sneakers". I know it's quite old and not much of a con but very enjoyable with solid casts.
