I'm actually stealing this from myself. I wrote this on my myspace blog last year. Anywhoo, I thought I'd repost it here.
For your reading pleasure 20 of my favorite movies...
1. As I've said before, Can't Hardly Wait has to be my favorite film.
2. Better Off Dead. "I want my two dollars!"
3. The Matrix. Probably have seen these a 100 times. Mr A owns it. I should watch it again. Haven't seen it this month.
4. Ocean's Eleven. Yes I've seen the original. But how can you resist Clooney and Pitt? Such wonderful eye candy. The first time I saw it, I thought it was very original how they robbed the casino, but I like to watch it again to try to catch things I've missed.
5. An Affair to Remember. Cary Grant and Deborah Karr. Now one talks like that but I would if I met the love of my life on a boat while I was engaged to another man. Maybe.
6. Brokeback Mountain. Probably one of my more recent favorites. I saw it more times than necessary in the theatre. Thank you, Mr A for buying it for me.
7. The Last Unicorn. I loved this movie as a little girl. I used to wish I could be a unicorn. It's so sad at the end.
8. Charade. I went through a Cary Grant phase. Probably after I saw An Affair to Remember. Plus Audrey Hepburn and Walter Matheau.
9. Shawshank Redemption. I remember the first time I saw this movie (over a 100 times ago). I thought wow, why haven't I heard of this movie. Terrific performances.
10. Love Actually. I love all the different stories and how they connect to each other.
11. Quills. I've never read anything about the Marquis de Sade. I've tried but the library doesn't seem to carry it. Strange. Besides I love Joquin Phoenix and Kate Winslet.
12. The Power of One. Such a powerful movie. It gets its point across without being preachy.
15. Spiderman 2
16. Dave. I love Kevin Klein!
17. Clueless. As If!
18. Gross Pointe Blank. Of course, John Cusack!
19. Breakfast Club. Classic 80's film!
20. Hairspray. I love John Waters. The music from the original is so good!
I love fall. It provides a good opportunity to curl up and watch great movies!
