I was tagged by the uber-talented illustrator, David Sones a.k.a. Pickeldog, to put together my list of top 25 favorite movies. Whenever asked this question I draw a blank. While there are many, many movies I've enjoyed I just can't go handing out the title of 'favorite' all willy nilly. It's been over a year since I've been to the theater, so if it's not on dvd I haven't seen it. There are only 7 movies that I personally own. To make it into my library a film must be full of artistic eye candy, and/or have a story that somehow pulls me in every time I see it. So, this list took some deep thought, and I feel like I'm forgetting some goodies, but here's the ones that came to mind.
- Run Lola Run
- The Nightmare Before Christmas
- Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events
- The Chronicles of Narnia
- James and the Giant Peach
- Empire of the Sun
- Children of Dune
- Memoirs of a Geisha
- Alice and Wonderland (Hallmark version)
- Lara Croft Tomb Raider
- Fight Club
- Pan's Labyrinth
- The Princess Bride
- Star Wars (the original trilogy)
- A League of Their Own
- Stranger Than Fiction
- Back to the Future- trilogy
- Batman Begins
- The Neverending Story
- The Journey of Natty Gann
Did you just make this sketch for this post? It's great. I'll need a couple of days to think about this, I find it so hard to make these lists because I love so many movies. I'll try to whittle it down.
Thanks Eric! Yeah, I sketched this because my IF sketch isn't working out yet.
I love your new avatar! :)
oh fun! I need to ponder -- will do this this week!!
I just did my tag, here's the link:
The face on this girl really works. Not sure how to put it, but it has a nice balance to it.
Great movie list, too. We have lots of overlap.
Aw.... you like Never Ending Story too! I was gonna put it as one of my top 25, but i didn't. Still I LOVE it! Such a great movie!!
(Seems like everybody has Fight Club on their list... I've got to check it out!)
