(Editor’s Note: Actor, writer and director Emilio Estevez’s latest movie, “The Way,” is now available on XFINITY On Demand, including a 10 minute preview guaranteed to lure you into the entire movie. Entertainment Weekly said there’s “a contemplative loveliness to ‘The Way.’” And Estevez recently told us, “I have been overwhelmed by people saying thank you for making this film.” As you might expect, the Hollywood veteran is also a film buff, and so we asked him to guest edit a row on the xfinityTV.com homepage. He selected a dozen of his favorite movies, all listed below. Even better, Xfinity TV subscribers can click the links and watch the movies instantly.)
2. BORN ON THE 4TH OF JULY – Tom Cruise should have been the one putting an Oscar on his mantle for this harrowing and brave performance. He nailed every nuance. Put this one in a time capsule. Click here to watch this movie.
4. THE RIGHT STUFF – Real Men doing “Real Men Things” on film. Current crop of metrosexual actors need not apply! Pop this one in the DVD player, shut up and prepare to be schooled, Junior. Click here to watch this movie.
11. PLATOON – Hard to watch this one without weeping like a baby. Brother Charlie woefully overlooked by the Oscar voters that year. Wasn’t even nominated! Not only should he have been in the mix – he should have won it, man. Click here to watch this movie.
