These are 5 of my favorite movies. I can't really 100% commit them to my top five because I really like a lot more movie just as well as I like these. These are just the first 5 I could think of. I'm a girl by the way.

  • Kung Fu Hustle
  • Princess Bride
  • 28 Days Later
  • Penitentiary III
    and... hmmm
    my favorite movie since 6th grade...
  • The Wall
Jul 17th 2006 edited
  1. Star Wars 4-6 [The original trilogy. Yes, I count an entire trilogy as one movie. So what?]
  2. The Lord of the Rings trilogy [again trilogy, again counted as one movie]
  3. Say Anything
  4. Almost Famous
  5. Grosse Pointe Blank

I was bored at work recently and wrote a whole essay about why I think Jim Halpert is the new Lloyd Dobler, the guy from Say Anything that every girl loves. If anyone wants to read it, check out my blog at

I'm too fickle for a list (the last good movie I've seen is usually my new "favorite".) So hey, my favorite movie is High Fidelity. Just happened to rent it again last night. Perfect cast. And Jack Black at his most annoying and superb best.

And yeah, sharky: some good ones on your list.

I think I have to add Garden State to any list I have too.

Aug 5th 2006
  • Kill Bill Vol 1 & Vol. 2 (technically supposed to be released as one movie, so I'm counting it as one. I resisted watching these because I thought I would hate them, but instead I am fascinated and could watch them hundreds of times and still find something I missed before.)
  • Titanic (I don't care - I love it, and not even for the romance part)
  • Pleasantville ("so people can have their hamburgers!" - one of my favorite movie quotes)
  • The World According to Garp
  • Say Anything

(List subject to change without notice, depending on my mood and what DVD I happen to dig out on any given day).

Aug 5th 2006

Hey Sharky, I really liked your Lloyd Dobler essay. Someone should start a thread "Anyone found a real life Jim?" My hubby is pretty darn close. ;) I'd like to hear from guys who think they are a Jim. In my experience Jim's are underappreciated in real life.

Back on topic.

  1. Elizabethtown --People do not appreciate this movie, but for me, it gets better every time I see it.
  2. Pride and Prejudice (BBC version) but the new version is growing on me despite its ultra cheesiness.
  3. The Philadelphia Story (C.K. Dexter Haven you have unsuspected depth.)
  4. You've Got Mail --so many throw away lines (I'm going to the nut shop where its fun)
  5. The Valley of Decision—I can’t believe this classic isn’t better known. It’s very good.

Ok, I only watch guilty pleasure movies. I am a romance junkie.

Aug 5th 2006

garbage -- oh! Garden State! Great movie.

And yes Kely, I think all the women between age 28-35 are trying to find a Lloyd Dobler. I got lucky to get close too.

Aug 5th 2006

Kickboxing: sport of the future. "Lloyd; don't be a guy, be a man."
Yeah...another good one.

And please don't call me garbage.
