7. I have heard of "Das Boot" (1981) have not seen it. Maybe cause its the subject matter..

For those that do not know, Das Boot is about the events surrounding a German U Boat during WWII

I have heard it is a terrific and outstanding film..

10. It has moments of excitement and pure terror.

When the submarine is enduring depth charging.

But for much of the film, especially the approximately four hour Director's cut DVD, it can be pretty monotonous. This was by design, to convey the months of sheer boredom the German submariners had to endure.

I still watch every second of the film several times per year, to keep my German skills up, and because it's a very interesting film.

9. Exciting are...

Intolerance - when Robert Harron is to be hanged.
Ben-Hur - the chariot contest.
Speed - or any runaway train.
West Side Story - build up to the big rumble.
Way Down East - Lillian Gish on the piece of broken ice.
The Poseidon Adventure the ship overturns.
North by Northwest - the crop planes zero in on Cary Grant.
Potemkin - the Odessa Steps attack.
Trilogy of Terror - Karen Black is terrorized by a voodoo doll.
Night of the Living Dead - zombies come to life and want to eat you.

12. The Bourne Identity was...

"a 1988 television movie starring Richard Chamberlain and Jaclyn Smith."

Anyway, "Z", "Duel" and "The Taking of Pelham One Two Three".
