The Ten Spot: My 10 Mt. Rushmores of Cinema

Forgive me if this gets cheesy real quick but this paragraph is the hardest I've ever had to write. After 8 years and almost 200 columns, this will be my last 10 Spot. It's the longest running column on JoBlo.com and I feel honored to have named it, shaped it, and delivered it every other week for as long as I have. For years I've tried to skip the typical top ten lists and mix it up with unusual looks at characters, scenes, situations, and moments. For my last entry I've decided to bring you the best of the best when it comes to my outlook on film. My favorite films, characters, villains, performances, actors, directors, etc..... It's my personal movie journal blown wide open to share with anybody that has ever cared about this column. Thanks to everybody that has ever read, commented, bitched, forwarded, suggested topics, helped my drunk ass think of shit, tweeted, liked, laughed, linked, or simply enjoyed anything I've ever written here. It's been a blast. Thanks, Berge.

DAMN!

Jim these articles are THE highlight for my trips to JoBlo. Yes I read most of the articles, but when I see a top ten list, that's my go-to article. Gonna miss them a ton. Hope this turns into a "respite" and not a "retirement".

I believe Alex Maidy will take over the column full-time. It's in fine hands.

Damn yo. This column was one of the few that kept me coming to the site. Your vast movie knowledge and desire to entertain is what made it so damn awesome. I will miss it greatly.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,>>> Green32.com

Thanks Pal...

Sorry to hear that you are stopping the column. Although I've not always agreed with your picks, I've always respected your reasoning. Great job and thanks for the very tough work.

The Ten Spot. Sometimes #1 was really predictable. Sometimes I didn't always agree with your choices. But everytime it was a great read, and Joblo won't be quite the same with out it. Best wishes,

I honestly don't know what to say. I thought there were 3 or 4 people that read this every week. Thanks for all the love, you've made a tough decision a lot easier to accept. And for the record, my favorite 10 Spot of all time is still the 10 Unintentionally Gay Moments. I still laugh when I think about it.

Great column

Sad to hear this the end of Jim Law's The 10 Spot. You certainly did a great job of skipping the 'typical top ten' lists as you say. These are always interesting to read and at the best of times have had me laughing my head off too. Great job.

Thank you for the 10!

If the 10's were turned to G's, you would have made the JoBlo community squirt continuously. We salute you sir.

Aw man. Your lists tend to be some of the funniest articles on this site.

Is there some new article you might grace this site with?

I've really enjoyed your lists over the years. Sometimes I didn't always agree with the rankings but it made me laugh damn near every time.
Thank you, Mr. Law.

I'm going to miss your Spots, Jaimito Law. I've always loved them because they are among the best at doing what I think any great list piece should do: Not just worst to best, but an organized stream of consciousness that offers a unique way of looking at any -- and I mean any -- given whole. Thanks for the always earnest and effortlessly hilarious reads, my man.

Quite possibly the finest article on this site. I was immediately on board with 90% of all your choices. But what I loved about this piece was the other 10% that made me say "Really?" when I saw those selections pictured. Once I read your reasons for putting them there, however, all was clear and I was left without retort. Well done, good sir. Good day to you. I SAID GOOD DAY!

Awesome Jim

I will miss The List- even if some other shmoe(s) take it over it won't be the same because your taste exemplifies everything that is great about this site. A respect for the classics while looking for innovation, a foot in the gutter and one in the clouds, taking a punch, taking a shot without wincing, admitting you have a heart, and no bullshit. This site isn't just guys who like guy movies, it's for people who love storytelling. Great list.
You better not be going anywhere.
