Monday's post was on a topic much heavier than I am prone to write. So, I thought I'd do something light and fun today. School's out, the weather's beautiful, and life is just good, so why not?
The Warrior at Books, Bones, Bricks, and Bullets has issued a challenge for fellow bloggers to list their top ten favorite movies. Narrowing it down to just ten was kind of tricky for me, because I like a wide variety of films, and my favorites depend on the day. But the following represents the most general of my usual listings, so here they are, in no particular order, as of today, May 4, 2011. Movie titles are links to trailers.
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
--The whole trilogy is up there, really, but I picked only my favorite out of the three movies so as not to dominate this list.
Saints and Soldiers
Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within
--As with The Lord of the Rings, I only put my favorite Final Fantasy movie on this list. Truth be told, this one actually doesn't feel very "Final Fantasy," but I like the movie anyway, and they at least included a Cid.
The Best Two Years
--You can't cover the entire experience of a mission within the length of a movie, but what is depicted here is absolutely one-hundred-percent accurate, and funny as heck. Ah, good memories!
The Phantom of the Opera
The Time Machine
Anyone share any of these? What would your list look like?
