I'm gonna have to go back to the 30's thread and catch up soon, I just haven't had a lot of time to spend on Interference or thinking about rankings this week.

Bah, sometimes picking 10 is hard. I forgot about this one until I was messing around on Netflix tonight. Funny enough, I associate it and Seven Brides a great deal. Lots of fond childhood memories of growing up being babysat by my grandmother. /sigh

Hah. But that's just around the time European cinema started to get really interesting! But yeah, no John Ford?

I had Stagecoach in my 1930s list. But yeah, there's a lot I need to see from the 1950s still.

Bigger Than Life is indeed one of the things I'd like to buy in the Criterion sale, heard many great things about it.

I think Jon Hamm needs to star in a remake.

In full Mason character, of course.

I'm making lists. Don't care how late I am

I'm dedicating this decade to my first love, 50's sci-fi and B sci-fi and horror. Used to watch them in the 60's on Saturday afternoon show called Chiller and late Saturday night show with the greatest horror movie host evah, Seymour!!

Godzilla - Honda 56 After Sinbad type movies, the first scary movie I saw as a kid. I was sold from then on.
The Beast From 20000 Fathoms - Lourie 53 Giant Harryhausen lizard terrorizes NYC. Ends at Coney Island. Awesome shot of pistol toting cop getting eaten head first.
Them - Douglas 54 Giant ants attack LA. One of the best from this decade
War of the Worlds - Haskin 53
20 Million Miles to Earth - Juran 57 Another sympathetic Harryhausen monster
Invaders from Mars - Menzies 53
Beginning of the End - Gordon 57 Giant grasshoppers attack Chicago? Another fave
The Thing - Nyby 51 One of the first and best from 50's
House on Haunted Hill - Castle 59 Vincent Price invites some guests over for the evening.
The Blob - Yeaworth 58 Corny, typical and effective. A good reason to type Steve McQueen

Just 10 of many good and incredibly bad films of this type from this decade

Those types of films are my cinema guilty pleasures. Great list.
