The Mummy/Mummy Returns
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Signs
Stargate

Man I love stuff like this. Kinda beats the head pounding trauma of trying to understand what the heck is happening in the world.

So without any further ado:

1. Signs - A lot of people gets this confused as an alien movie. For me it was a lot more personal than that. The fact aliens were in the movie does not necessarily mean it was about them. They served as a backdrop to Gibsons character who had lost faith only to slowly regain it over the course of the movie. For me this will always be my favourite.
This is my favorite movie for sure. I get a lot of crap for it too because many didn't like it. It's nice to see someone who does!

I like it for the same reasons you did but I also liked the aliens in the movie. The birthday scene made me jump in my theater seat and drop my pop corn. It creeped me out and I loved it. I also loved Mel Gibsons character. Watching the movie multiple times I got things that I didn't see the first time.

I watch this movie weekly




3. The Goonies - Need I say more. Came out roughly when I was just discovering life is too short to be taken seriously. One of the few gems that should never and could not be replicated "YOU HEAR ME HOLLYWOOD?" From the moment the credits started rolling I wanted to go on a crusade to find my own pirate ship. How often does a movie make you want to do that?

This is a classic! Who doesn't love Goonies! I think this movie is why I liked baby ruth candy bars and rocky road ice cream. Still love both to this day.

Sadly though I have read they want to do a remake and use Shia Leboeuf as Mikey.. Please NO!!!


10. Gremlins - Pure manic genius. The idea of supernatural creatures causing havoc on a grand scale was always going to be a winner in my book and instead of hating the chaos creating half brothers of the innocent mowgi, you actually went along for the ride and enjoyed their senseless destruction. A comedic gem.

Who didn't want a mowgi!?!

Do you remember Monster Squad?

Ooooooooooohhhhhh Monster Squad. Now that was good. Kids against Dracula, Wolfman, Swamp Beast, Frankenstein and The Mummy was always a personal favourite of mine. Took me ages to track down a copy of it on DVD a few years back. Now my son gets to enjoy the movies I enjoyed as a kid.

Although Neverending Story repeated over and over does have its limits
But he loves it.

Oh yeah Stewart's acting was so good, how he can show love like that even in his eyes, I swear I melt every time I watch it. Grant's acting was perfect for the role, you know they really did a good job casting for that movie each actor showed the perfect acting skills for the role they were playing, now I'm off to find a copy I have to see it again!! lol.
