BILL CRIDER'S POP CULTURE MAGAZINE
THE UNTOUCHABLES is vastly overrated. MILLERS CROSSING, huh? THE OUTFIT is a solid B-movie but hardly a top 10. I give ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA some props because there are too few Leone movies, but it's horribly miscast with a couple of exceptions in minor supporting roles. LITTLE CAESAR should be in there (80 years old but zippier than most modern movies), and why include MILLERS CROSSING but not THE GLASS KEY (either the Raft or Ladd version). Some older movies like BEAST OF THE CITY and THE SECRET SIX would probably show up more often in these kinds of lists if they were better known.
I agree about The Untouchables. How could they leave off White Heat?
