  1. Thank you for the shout out Danny. And happy birthday my friend.

  2. How dare you, sir! This countdown list is out of order! The whole system is out of order! I bet that’s how you celebrate your birthday, random number order! Happy 13th Birthday!!!

  3. Happy belated birthday, Danny! I hope you had a great day. Thank you so much for including my site in your list of blogs! I enjoyed reading your other lists, and have vowed to watch Five Graves to Cairo if it’s the last thing I do.

    • I had an awesome day filled with wine and Star Trek, which works for me. Five Graves to Cairo is great and it’s bizarre that it’s never gotten a DVD release. I know it pops up on TCM every so often, and is well worth seeing!

  4. Thanks for the youtube movie list and the reminder to see that killer dolphin movie. Happy birthday. Don’t stop the movies.

  5. Wow, did not know that Samurai Cop is on YouTube! That movie is a freakin’ riot. Great recommendation(s)!
