Film In My Top Ten

Recently from the mouth of John Cusack: “I’ve made 10 good films.”
“The Sure Thing, Eight Men Out, Say Anything, The Grifters, Bullets Over Broadway, Grosse Pointe Blank, The Thin Red Line, Being John Malkovich, High Fidelity, Max - that pretty much covers it.”
Do the rest of his movies suck?
“Well, there aren’t 40 that are great, put it that way.” He pauses for an eternity, eyes widening. “But that’s fine. Ten is a good batting average, don’t you think?”
Actually, Cusack, 10 is generous. We will accept The Grifters, The Thin Red Line, and Being John Malkovich. As for the rest, add them to your forty that aren’t great.
