Top Ten Lists
A tip of the hat to Tahnda for inspiring this list with her "shame on you" to TPTB for too obviously lifting Movie Plots in their recent storylines. Personally we see nothing wrong with this venerable Soap tradition; the trouble is they've been using the wrong movies. So here's the film re-treads we'd like to see them do. And a thank you to Phil Ward for introducing us to the number one film.
