With "Big Miracle" being released this weekend, I was told that it's my responsibility to write a best movie list in conjunction with its arrival in theaters. I find this peculiar. My instructions were so specific and, for the life of me, I can't figure out how this topic relates at all to "Big Miracle." Alas, I'm not one to ignore a direct order from a superior, so here's a list of the Best Movie Wails. [Ed. note: No, you spelled it wrong; we meant "Best Whale Movies."]
