Your top 10 movies of all time

Post by jruegg » Wed Dec 14, 2011 3:52 pm

This is for Bfreebern. Apparently, he’s never seen a good movie before.

I’ll post my top ten after thinking about it for a while.



DEAR Bfreebern,

Now you’ll be able to see what you’re missing! :D

In Christ’s love,

:D

Good movie is subjective.

Here are some of my favorite non-children movies:

The Usual Suspects
Shawshank Redemption
The Big Lebowski
Good Will Hunting
Princess Bride

Now, I'd include all Star Wars AND Indiana Jones in there, with the exception being the Crystal Skull which sucked, in my opinion.

Harry Potters are also great. I've read all books, but haven't seen The half blood prince or The Deathly Hallows.

This is my list when i give myself 2 minutes to consider

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
No Country for Old Men
The Matrix
Braveheart
The Fantastic Mr. Fox
Inception
The Thine Red Line
The Big Lebowski
The Princess Bride
Amelie
Lady in the Water


Just missing the cut:
Pulp Fiction
Watchmen
Pan's Labyrinth
The Dark Knight
Unbreakable
Gran Torino
Sherlock Holmes
Big Fish


I would have included Band of Brothers, Sopranos, Deadwood, and several other HBO series, but that's not very fair, cause they get 10+ hours to tell a story. :)

Okay, now you guys will probably lose any respect for me.
Here goes:

Shanghai Noon
Rat Race
Napoleon Dynamite
Bug (Curb Entertainment)
Oh Brother, Where Art Thou
Les Miserables
Chocolat
Ladyhawke
Meet the Parents
Ice Age (mostly because of Scrat)

And the ABSOLUTE WORST movie I have ever seen, hands down:
The Jack Bull
I cried for half an hour after it was over, and wouldn't speak to Terry for hours I was so mad at him for renting it! Why did I keep watching? I thought something good was going to happen. It kept giving me false hope.
