You Pick 'em Film Festival Stuff

Pick your top 5 from the list below. (Yeah - I know your personal favorite may not be listed - but just do it MY way)

Snatch
Lock, Stock and 3 Smoking Barrels
Trainspotting
A Walk In The Clouds
Babe
Clueless
Tombstone
Monsters, Inc.
Finding Forrester
Disney's Beauty and Beast
Men of Honor
The Color Purple


Now add 5 movies that are your favorites - it's okay if they're duplicates of some of mine.

I want to hold an online film festival - the top movies here (and on your blogs if you want to participate) will be viewed in the month of October and we can discuss them.

To particiapte: post your favorite films and ask your readers to pick 5 of yours and add 5 of their own. We should be able to come up with the top 5 films from all participants based on list duplications. Please drop me a line if you want to do this and I'll count your blog's results. We'll post the names of the movies at the end of September.

The Shawshank Redemption
Meet Joe Black
The Cider House Rules
Finding Neverland
The Hours

HOWEVER...I also LOVE your choices of The Color Purple, Men of Honor and Trainspotting.

Movies, Movies, they're the best!

Mega Rich said...

As soon as I think I have them, they change because I read someone elses. Maybe what I should do is just give a long list because movies are my thing. I don't do network TV, but you best believe I'm getting to Blockbuster.

Mega Rich said...

ok, i'm back - out of yours (since I haven't seen the one's everyone is raving about) I'll take

Tombstone
Finding Forrester
The Color Purple

My top five and this is a stretch (it really depends on my mood)

1. Shawshank Redemption
2. Gladiator
3. The Sandlot (the first one)
4. Hitch or Jerry McGuire (I had to slip another one in some kinda way)

5. Shooter/Italian Job/National Treasure (they all kind of give me the same feel)

Don't break the rules, just bend them.
