You didn't say why you liked yours....
1) The Star Wars
films, and I'm going to count these as one entry. This franchise redefined what going to the movies meant, and still inspires
generations of movie-makers.
2) The Harry Potter
films (again, one entry). I've never seen a book story translate so well to film, and these movies, like the books, were
simply (pardon the pun) magical.
3) The Princess Bride
. This movie had action, the best sword fight in movie history, great lines, comedy, romance, all in one. I still enjoy
watching this movie.
. Yeah, I know, but for me, this movie just did everything right, acting, music, costumes, sets, and most of all, a story that really
resonated. You felt transported to the Titanic on that fateful night.
5) The Airplane!
movies. I'm a sucker for good spoof movies, and these films are the best example of the genre.
6) The Living Dead
movies. Romero invented the genre, and this series of movies (and remakes) still serves as the quintessential treatise on
zombies. The whole idea of being trapped while holding out against the horde of undead outside, just terrifying.
7) The Back to the Future
movies. Certainly the best example of time travel in film, and the way the 3 flowed together made it like one big
movie. A great cast, and just really original.
8) Jurassic Park
films. Simply incredible, and such a unique story idea. The effects made you believe and the actors actually acted like you'd
expect people in those situations to act like. Ok, so the one in the city wasn't so hot, but the others were great.
9) Apollo 13
. Superb film. Great job of capturing the era, and told a story I really had never heard much about. Simply an amazing time in our
history, and an example of what man can do when we put our minds to something. Truly inspiring.
10) James Bond
movies (excluding the recent Daniel Craig ones. Bond is supposed to be suave, not a thug).... I'm a guy, so this is kind of
required, but I love this whole series. For me, Brosnan was the most quintessential Bond, and those movies paid a lot of homage to the old ones (like
the Q lab, etc. scenes). And the gadgets, who doesn't love those?
