Top Ten Movies Blogfest


Alex J Cavanaugh is hosting the Top Ten Movie Countdown Blogfest today, and all we have to do is list our top ten favorite movies!
I don’t watch many movies, but I love a good story, so here are a few of my favorites (with a lot of help from my husband, the resident movie buff, who encouraged me to watch some of them):
TOP TEN MOVIES

TOP TEN MOVIES

  1. Shawshank Redemption
  2. Cloud Atlas
  3. Schindler’s List
  4. The Dark Knight
  5. In the Name of the Father
  6. Lord of Rings Trilogy
  7. Cinema Paradiso
  8. Wall-E
  9. Usual Suspects
  10. Life is Beautiful
I realize they cover a wide spectrum, everything from Fantasy to Political to Experimental, to Animation, and even a movie about movies. I’m an omnivore when it comes to books, and also to movies (when I manage to watch them)– and my husband’s tastes in movies are pretty eclectic as well.
What are your fave movies? Have you watched any of the movies on the above list?

  1. That’s a very good list, I must say. I’d definitely agree with Shawshank, Schindler, Usual, and Life. Loved In the Name of the Father, especially Sinead O’Connor’s song. Loved Cinema too.

  2. I’ve seen most of these. It’s a good list. My favorites are Shawshank Redemption and Life Is Beautiful. But there are a few others there that I really like as well.

    I’ll just plan on you rescuing me from the spam folder and won’t do the followup plea.

  3. Shawshank seems to be getting a lot of love in the blog hop :). It is a great film, but it didn’t make my top ten, my choices were a bit more on the action side, although The Green Mile slipped in. I have heard of several of the films on your list, but not seen them, like Usual Suspects, I might have to look them up.

  4. Damy, this is a really good list that you’ve put together here. I was surprised to see your blog among the signups, with you not being a huge movie buff and all, lol, but I am glad that you participated in Alex’s blogfest. Shawshank Redeption and Schindler’s List are legendary top films! It’s nice that they were among your picks. I can’t believe I still haven’t seen the Usual Suspects in its entirety. Some sibling buddies recommended that movie when I was in high school. It was one of their favorites…so much that they usually had it playing almost every time I visited at their house…something that you’d likely see me do with the LOTR trilogy!

    I’ve heard good things from a friend who read the Cloud Atlas book that the movie is based on and am curious about Life is Beautiful.

  5. Shawshank was good. Robbins and Freeman were great together. Schindler’s List is one of the best WWII movies made. Ledger in the Dark Knight was Oscar caliber, sad he died before the movie even came out. And who can’t like the Usual Suspects…classic.

    Nice list overall.

  6. Thanks for the follow, and for visiting me in England. Your top 10 is indeed a mixed bag. I was greatly pleased to see ‘Cinema Paradiso’ there. Regards, Pete. Norfolk.

    4. Schindlers List
    5. The Shawshank Redemption
