Alex J. Cavanaugh is hosting a blogfest on movies. Now anyone who knows me, knows I have a lifelong love affair with film. My oldest son majored in film, giving me excuses to discuss movies for the rest of my life. Yeah! The point of this was to determine your top ten. I thought, no problem, but I worked on it for over a month, and the list got longer instead of shorter. Narrowing it down was problematic; some of them broke new ground, some trampled old ground in a new way, some merely thematically scored my life.
Some hold a place of sentiment from a place in my past, some are mere candy after a diet, some are heavy fare which kept me thinking and discussing for months. Where should I draw the line? Argh! What I thought would be easy and fun has been painful and illuminating. Here are the final ten:
My Top Ten Movies
- The Sixth Sense
- One Tin Soldier: The Legend of Billy Jack
- Back to the Future
- Die Hard
- Toy Soldiers
- The Avengers
- Anything Hitchcock
What is your top ten? Share with me in the comments!
