Top Ten Movie Countdown

 

 I know- you are probably thinking, Another blogfest, Azia?   But, can you really blame me?  They are such fun and I love reading what other people have to say about similar topics!  Make sure you head on over to Alex J. Cavanaugh's blog and check out all of the entries!

All we have to do is list our Top Ten favorite movies. How easy/awesome is that?  Here we go!

Step Brothers:
It's too funny... stupid, yes.  But, hilarious.

It's Kind of a Funny Story:

This movie just makes you feel good when it's over.

Something Borrowed:

 When I need to watch a chick-flick-- this is my go-to film.  The story line is a little twisted, and I'm not the biggest fan of the novel... But, the casting is great and John Krasinksi is amazing!

District 9:

WHEN IS THE SEQUEL COMING OUT.  Seriously.  This story is GOLD.

What's Eating Gilbert Grape:
One of the best movies of ALL TIME.

Snatch:
No explanation needed.  This movie is genius.

Fight Club:
YOU ARE NOT YOUR FUCKING KHAKIS!!!!

Wild Target:
HILARIOUS.  Get your hands on this movie NOW.

The Royal Tenenbaums:
I could watch this movie a thousand times over and never get sick of it.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind:

My absolute favorite movie of all time EVER.

Bonus :Favorite Christmas Movie- The Family Stone

Okay, this was A LOT harder than I thought it would be!  I have some honorable mentions: Jerry Maguire (I know, Tom Cruise is such an annoying actor- but hot damn do I love that movie!), Legends of the Fall, Drive, Across the Universe, ALL of the Harry Potter movies (obviously), A Lot Like Love, Avatar... just a name a few.  Ha.

Have you seen any of the movies listed above?  What are some of your favorite movies?

  7. A big 'hello' from the blog hop!

    Snatch was another one of those films that I just didn't have room for in my list. A great film for sure, though!

    Great list!

    1. HELLO! I know-- wasn't it challenging narrowing it down to just 10 movies? When I began, I thought it was going to be easy-peasy... um no!

  8. Seen everyone except Wild Target, enjoyed them too. And yeah Cruise is annoying but he does have a few good films.

    1. My beef with Tom Cruise is that even in his best movies-- like, say- Vanilla Sky-- there is always some point in the movie where you can tell he is an annoying person.

      Anyway, get your hands on Wild Target. It's fabulous!

  9. I'm surprised they haven't made a sequel to District 9 considering how popular the film became.
    Thanks for participating in my blogfest!

  14. Just dropping by from the blog hop. Our lists don't overlap, and I've hardly seen the movies on your list, I can say I have much love for "Gilbert Grape". The rest I'll just have to add my "to watch" list. :3

  15. Okay, so I have to admit I've only seen through or four of them, and I only liked one, but WILD TARGET is one of my favourite movies, I just rewatched it the other day. I love Bill Nighy so much.
