Movie suggestions: what do you like?

Ok people, here is your time to weigh in. As much as I love movies, I don’t get to the theaters nearly as much as I want to, and I realize that I have missed some gems. At the same time, I also realize that there are some others that are not as widely known or popular, but that are well liked anyway; for example, I know that it would never have received an Academy Award, but I absolutely love the campiness of Starship Troopers 🙂

So here’s the deal: I want to know what movies are your favorites, so I can start up my own “Movie to See Before I Die” list. It can be anything: classic, sci-fi, Disney, whatever. But I will make this disclaimer: I don’t do a lot of slasher/horror flicks.

Ready, set, GO!

  1. I always love these types of questions. I love movies, lists, and ranking things.

    My ranking may be a little off. I sometimes wonder if an A+ is too high a grade for Under the Tuscan Sun, I’m tempted to rank The Blind Side even higher after seeing it again, and it’s been so long since I’ve seen A Bug’s Life, I wonder if it really is as good as I remember or if I should have Wall-E and/or Cars higher. But, for now, this is the list of my top 25 favorite movies:

    01. (A+) Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
    02. (A+) The American President
    03. (A+) Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
    04. (A+) Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
    05. (A+) Braveheart
    06. (A+) The Shawshank Redemption
    07. (A+) Star Wars: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
    08. (A+) Rounders
    09. (A+) Under the Tuscan Sun
    10. (A) The Dark Knight
    11. (A) Finding Nemo
    12. (A) Ocean’s 11
    13. (A) Star Trek
    14. (A-) Star Wars: Episode VI: Return of the Jedi
    15. (A-) Spider-Man 2
    16. (A-) Iron Man
    17. (A-) Star Trek: First Contact
    18. (A-) Ocean’s 13
    19. (A-) Muppet Christmas Carol
    20. (A-) The Blind Side
    21. (A-) Back to the Future III
    22. (A-) The Thomas Crown Affair
    23. (A-) Batman Begins
    24. (A-) Love Actually
    25. (A-) A Bug’s Life

    • You’ve got a pretty good list. #6 is my all-time favorite movie, and I’ve seen #’s 5, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 21, 23, and 25.

      I’ve never seen the LOTR trilogy, because every. single. time I try to watch it, I always get interrupted. But my friend let me borrow all three of her special extended version DVDs, so I should be fixing that problem soon.

      The others on your list are all movies I’ve wanted to see, just haven’t had a chance. But they are a good place to start!
