The Top 5 / High Fidelity

So I watched this 2 hour special on ABC the other night. It was titled "The Best in Film", and it listed the top 5 movies that were voted the favorite by a country wide vote. It was pretty cool actually. Not only did they show the top 5 best films in history but they showed the top 5 best action movies, the top 5 best sci-fi movies, the top 5 characters, and the top 5 best lines from movies. Now I have no problem with the selections that were voted the best in each category. The problem that I have is that I don't think anyone knows where the top 5 originated from.

John Cusack owns The Top 5. Its from the movie High Fidelity. John plays "Rob", the owner of his own Record store. Him and his friends will come up with the Top 5 songs to listen to on a Monday morning. The Top 5 worst breakups, the Top 5 Track 2's, side 2's. The list keeps going and going. There's more to the movie then just that. The movie pretty much revolves around the break up of Cusack and his girlfriend. He tries to get her back throughout the entire movie and talks to the camera about his problems. It's such a good movie! So if you haven't seen it yet, watch it. Its probably the perfect guy film, and Cusack is one of the writers of it.

The Top 5 is from the movie High Fidelity, yes indeed.
