Alex Cavanaugh. Today in his latest blogfest, we're all going to list our top ten movies. Check in on Alex's blog and find lots more links to great movie lists. You may find some you want on your Netflix Que.
1) I'm going to list these in no particular order. Let me start with an older movie, The Outlaw Josie Wales. This movie is classic Clint Eastwood. I grew up on westerns but this one is more than that. It takes place in the aftermath of the Civil War and the lingering resentments that dogged the people of that time. The book was great too.
2) Going with my cowboy love, I have to add a John Wayne. Big Jake takes place at the turn of the century when the eastern part of the country was becoming civilized and the west was still wild.
3) The Count of Monte Cristo is on my watch once a month list. I love it even though it's nothing like the book.
4) Staying with historical, I also rewatch The Last of the Mohicans on a regular basis. So what if it veers from the book. I still love it.
5) Pirates of the Caribbean, Curse of the Black Pearl, is the best of that bunch. The others never quite lived up to it.
6) I'm going to lump all three movies from the Lord of the Rings into one selection. About nine hours of video to enjoy.
7) A more recent pick is The Avengers. Tony snarky Stark is too fun to skip. Can't wait for the next Iron Man.
8) Probably cheating again, but I'm putting all three Batman movies here though I liked the second and third better than the first.
9) My favorite musical is The Sound of Music. It has everything, action, adventure, love and great voices.
10) And to round out my list of ten, I'm adding Megamind as my favorite animated movie.
