A list of the "25 Best Conservative Movies". I agree with some, others just had me scratching my head. What say ya'll?

#1,3 and 8 I've never seen. I agree with just about the rest of them, Gran Torino ruled!!!

I never saw 1, 3, 9, 14, 20, 21, 22, or 23. :o

Master and Commander never would have jumped out at me as a "conservative" film. And Gran Torino was effin A!

I haven't seen a lot of the movies on the list, and many of the ones I have seen are not movies I would give a political label to. Groundhog Day? Ghostbusters (although I liked the commentary on that one)? I wouldn't even say that Braveheart was conservative or liberal or anything like that-it was a good movie.

Of all of those, the only ones I would say were really "conservative" movies are Red Dawn and Team America: World Police. Red Dawn was out when I was in college-the boys seemed to like it a lot, it really wasn't my thing. Team America, on the other hand, is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. It has a puppet sex scene! How much more fun can something get than that?

They are remaking Red Dawn. I enjoyed the original a lot so I hope they don't screw this one up too badly.

How can they call Team America a conservative movie? It makes from of all sides, conservatives included. As for Grand Torino, how this movie was snubbed by the Oscars is disgusting.
