Happy 200th Entry

Since beginning this particular blog on January 27th, 2007, it appears that I am now upon my 200th entry. So in honor of the event, I present to you:

17 of MY Favourite Movies!

Inspired by this guy (Jose) and his very funny videos (ymmv), I thought I'd take a moment to compile a list of my favourite movies, in no particular order, as I can recall them.

  • Dangerous Liasons : I had an ex who disliked this movie because its about people using each other. Oddly enough, that's exactly what I like about it.
  • Under the Tuscan Sun : I swear I cry at least four times through this movie, which I always watch at least twice in a sitting.
  • Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back : But not Return of the Jedi. too many ewoks.
  • Sex, Lies, and Videotape : This is a good movie, but I can't quantify why I love it so much. Maybe its the sex... or the lies... no wait.. yeah.. its James Spader.
  • The DaVinci Code and Last of the Mohiccans : OK, I liked these movies, but the soundtracks are the reason they are on the list. I love these soundtracks so much, that if the movie is on tv, I will immediately stop channel-surfing and watch the entire movie. really. I've seen them both like a million times because of this.
  • Amelie : Don't we all love weird french people?
  • The Royal Tannenbaums and The Darjeeling Limited : Wes Anderson has taught me the meaning of 'auteur' and someday, someday when airlines stop dicking up over, I will get to India and ride a train.
  • A Room with a View : I loved this enough to buy and read the book by E.M. Forster.
  • Dune : David Lynch controls the Universe!
  • Heathers : Cause once upon a time, Christian Slater was too cool. Too cool for what? you may ask. No, just watch the movie.
  • Pride & Prejudice : I've seen almost every version out there.
  • Twelfth Night : Shakespeare especially rocks in this one and there are cross-dressers. 'nuff said.
  • Zoolander :OMG! this is the best, The BEST! hands down, funniest movie in that whole genre of comedies. and yes, I did see 'Blades of Glory'.
  • 2001: A Space Oddyssey : The amazingness of this movie can not be described. I would not a worthy geek if I failed to mention this movie.
  • Apocolypse Now : I don't like movies about war because they usually tell a story I've seen a before. Lucky for me, this movie isn't about war.

    And for those of you who have made it this far. A bonus movie listing.

  • Dude, Where's My Car : Sadly, its this movie that I will think of when I try to remember what I was doing with my life at this time. oh, so sad.
