Top 10 Movie Blogfest


Okay, friends, Alex is hosting one of his SUPREMO Blogfests today, and I thought I'd play along... the QUEST? What are your top 10 movies?

Now I'm not a super hip, stay on top of the current thing sort of person, so my apologies if I date myself... and chances are I will cruise through all of YOUR posts and remember dozens of OTHER movies I like even BETTER, but that is the nature of the beast, eh?

So here they are...

Lord of the Rings Trilogy (counting as one... so I cheat, though my favorite of them is The Two Towers—Aragorn is sexiest in that one *shifty*)

Silence of the Lambs (I love the complexity of the characters in this)

The Thing (the one from the 70s)

The Birds

Gone With The Wind (erm... I might have drooled on my keyboard... LOVE Rhett... also love what Scarlett finds in herself)

It's a Wonderful Life (my favorite feel-good)

Young Frankenstein

Princess Bride (BEST. LINES. EVER.)

Very Favorite Movie EVER: Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail (though Life of Brian is right up here, too)


Honorable Mention goes to the Harry Potter Movies. I love these, but mostly because they remind me of the BOOKS which I love a lot MORE, and because they were really a part of my life for so long (and the growing up of my childings)


You should definitely go see what everybody else picked, too.

The Birds, great choice. That movie changed bird watching forever!

Amber T. Smith said...

Love every one of your choices, and OF COURSE I agree with The Two Towers being the best LotR movie due to the many fabulous smexy Aragorn moments (still have to fan myself when he bursts through the doors of Theoden's hall). *shifty*

Mel Chesley said...

Ha! Love all your choices. And yes Princess Bride had the best lines of any movie out there. Great choices!

Elise Fallson said...

I have Princess Bride up on my list too! And LOTR and Silence of the Lambs were also great movies. Fun choices! (:

Jeremy [Retro] said...

Young Frankenstein... brilliant!

So far with this blog hop, I'd decided that I need to see more movies...until I got to Karen's site and yours! I'd seen 9 out of the 10 movies she'd listed, and all of yours! Great picks here.

Teresa Coltrin said...

I see some of yours, I like too. But, my list already turned into two.

I've never finished Silence of the Lambs. It played with my mind too much. :)

L.G. Smith said...

Yeah , Princess Bride! And of course I love the Lord of the Ring movies and Harry Potter, too. And must watch It's a Wonderful Life every Christmas. :)

Emma Adams said...

Great list! :) LOTR was no. 1 on mine.

M.J. Fifield said...

A lot of these movies made my list too. It's A Wonderful Life didn't, but I do really love that film.

jaybird said...

Great choices Hart. A lot of these are familiar. Gone With The Wind made my list too.

Roland D. Yeomans said...

AAARGH! How could I have forgotten THE PRINCESS BRIDE? There are so many great films out there -- perhaps next time it should be the TOP 20! Hope all is well on the homefront, Roland

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Princess Bride and Monty Python just missed my top ten! And yes, best lines ever.
Carpenter's The Thing is one of the best horror films ever made. Still holds up today.
Thanks for participating in my blogfest!

Shaharizan Perez said...

That is a great list! I would never have thought you a Gone With the Wind fan. I knew Monty Python would end up here. :D

Christopher Allen said...

Yes! Monty Python!

Jan Newman said...

Young Frankenstein. Yes!

VR Barkowski said...

Yay, The Birds AND Young Frankenstein, a watery woman after my own heart (hart?)! Please forgive my blog dis of A Wonderful Life, I didn't mean it. Can't believe this is the first time I've seen Princess Bride listed.

Mark Means said...

It's A Wonderful Life is a classic, for sure and love your picks here :)

Laura Eno said...

Some great picks here. I'm afraid to watch Silence of the Lambs though...
I need to watch Princess Bride again. It's been ages!

Al Diaz said...

Very good choices. Princess Bride is one of the favorites, I see.

Johanna Garth said...

I love The Birds. Actually anything by Hitchcock and Gone With the Wind...it's entirely possible my husband seduced me with one single Rhett Butler quote!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I had to include all three movies for LOTR.

You know, I've never seen Gone with the Wind. I know, that's weird!

nutschell said...

Wohoo Harry Potter! Princess Bride is a classic!

Tami Von Zalez said...

I was wondering when Young Frankenstein would show up on one of the lists - one I neglected to add to mine.

LuAnn Braley said...

Following from the Top Ten Movie Countdown Blogfest.

Great choices, even though I don't think we had one movie listed in common! So hard to pick only 10.

Unfortunately, one of the things I remember about Silence of the Lambs was that my car was burglarized while I was inside the theatre. :(

LTM said...

Ahh!!! The Birds, GWTW, Princess Bride! It's a Wonderful Life! All great ones! I don't know if I could narrow my list down. I love all of these~ :o) <3

David P. King said...

You seriously have some of my favorite movies of all time on here. :)

mshatch said...

Oh great list. Esp. The Thing. It still holds up today, imo.

Jemi Fraser said...

I can't believe I forgot Harry Potter! And Monty Python FTW!!! :)

j welling said...

_Jaws_ omitted? I am questioning your watery-ness.

Maybe...she's a witch ! Yes, a witch ! ... And if she drowns? ... not a witch !

I've been in that meeting.

M. J. Joachim said...

Nice that you included It's a Wonderful Life. Silence of the Lambs creeped me out - such an intense movie!

James C. Wallace II said...

I'm pleased to see Young Frankenstien and Monty Python's Holy Grail films included in your list. I would add one that I feel is the finest movie ever made... but then again, I ain't quite right in the head.
That movie would be: Yellow Submarine!

Jay Noel said...

"Anybody want a peanut?"

The Thing scared the hell outta me. But I was maybe 12 when I saw it on cable.

LD Masterson said...

Never saw The Thing (I scare too easy) but I totally agree with the rest of these. I love that you included The Birds.

Patricia Lynne said...

The Birds is what made me stop watching horror. While I was watching it, I wasn't particularly scared but that night I had the freakiest nightmare ever and since then I can barely stomach horror movies. I think that means that movie did an excellent job of being scary!

Lexie C. said...

Love your list!! Yay- Young Frankenstein- that'd be on my list!! and MP's Holy Grail- YES! :)

Helena said...

The Princess Bride does indeed have some wonderful lines. You've reminded me of an oldie great flick, All About Eve -- best bitchy dialogue ever; it's also shows us how intelligent, literate grown-ups used to talk.

Stephen Tremp said...

Those Monty Python movies were great. Saw parts of Life of Brian not too long ago. I'll have to watch Holy Grail again. Its been a while since I seen it.

~Sia McKye~ said...

Young Frankenstein was a great movie
! I have an Abnormal brain, too, lol!

Donna Hole said...

I had a hard time going out at our ocean trips after watching The Birds.

But these don't contain nudity!

DiscConnected said...

"What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?"

MP And The Holy Grail is a classic!

Trisha F said...

Awesome choices here, though I admit I haven't seen all of them. I love Aragorn...anytime, any way. hehe. Silence of the Lambs is also in my DVD collection, as are the LotR movies, the Princess Bride and the Birds. Love Monty Python too :)

Nick Wilford said...

Awesome list! Young Frankenstein is another I forgot all about. Had a hard time picking between Holy Grail and Life of Brian, but my missus's fave is the Meaning of Life... "It's only wafer thin!" :D

hibilala said...

After reading your post, I am looking forward to this. Your post is particular useful, plz keep going. RS accounts for sale is also cool!

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

Oh, I loved SILENCE OF THE LAMBS and the 70s version of THE THING was great!

Miranda Hardy said...

You mentioned some great ones I'd completely forgotten. Loved The Birds!

The Capillary said...

While I agree with you that "Princess Bride" produced some amazing quotes, I have to say in all fairness, so did some of the other movies. I'm particularly thinking of Gimli. :3
