I don't really like to call favorites much. Maybe I'm wishy-washy? Or I think I just like to keep things open ended.
That said, here's six of my favorite movies (why not five, you ask? I couldn't narrow it down!). I'd say they are probably in the top 20. The list is pretty fluid. Mostly I have movies I really like, movies I don't like, and movies that are okay. No #1 favorite though.
So, in no order, six movies I really like:
Funniest movie ever. I could watch it everyday and not get sick of it. And it's so quotable. Everyone in the movie cracks me up, Paul Rudd, Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, all hilarious. I love it. Throw any Will Ferrell movie at me and I will love it, I promise.
Pride and Prejudice
The British BBC version, thank you! :) This movie is 6 hours long, but worth every minute. Colin Firth is the ONLY Darcy in my mind. The Keira Knightly movie....eh, I'd watch it, but this is 100% times better and more true to the book.
Gone with the Wind
I didn't watch this movie until I was in college and .....oh man, I love it! The south, the costumes, the romance, the Scarlett and Rhett drama. Awesome. I also watched the sequel, Scarlett, which was good, but could never be as good as the original (Timothy Dalton as Rhett? ehh....He's no Clark Gable.).
Back to School
Alright, so this movie is absolutely ridiculous. I saw it on Comedy Central before I graduated high school and it's been a favorite ever since. I don't know why. I'm not a Rodney Dangerfield fan. It might be because of the famed triple-lindy? The movie also stars a young Robert Downey Jr. with blue hair!
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
Cheesy musical with people bellowing and dancing in unison all the time? Can't go wrong. Kidnapping, fighting, lumberjacking. I would submit this is a movie that appeals to both sexes.
Star Trek 2009 version
I couldn't leave out something from the sci-fi genre. I like lots of sci-fi that didn't make this list (no worries, I can make more movie lists!). Maybe the large cast of attractive young men is why I like this movie so much (Hellllllllo Spock!). I did like the story and the pacing. It just seemed like a really fresh look at the whole Star Trek series. I am excited for the next one.
