Hey guys. ;) We've gained and lost a lot of people since the last time I did one of these.

What are your favorite 3 movies? I will compile all of your top films and do a list overall of our top favorite films. :) Maybe between us we'll all find some new films that are worth watching.

Series are considered one.. so things like Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Star Wars A New Hope etc. would all be considered one, since they're all part of the same story, so if you're posting a series I might not know is a series, please mark it as such. ;) Yes. That's about it. Get posting, your top 3. Only your top 3 will be marked so if you post more then 3 the three will be taken in the order you post them. Yes. :)

These are not my top 3 favorite movies, but perhaps movies that have been overlooked/introduced to me by my boyfriend that I have really really enjoyed and are worth mentioning, so perhaps more people can see them. :)

1. The Hudsucker Proxy
2. State and Main
3. Jack the Bear

My actual top 3 are:
1. Edward Scissorhands
2. Amelie
3. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (I saw this in the theater 3 times!)

Good calls on Amelie and Edward.

I don't have a top three, so I just sort of picked from my list of 20 favorite movies...

The Princess Bride is the best movie ever made, hands down.


Other than that... Hmmmm.... "The 10th Kingdom" aaaaaand... "Robinhood; men in tights". :) I suck at thinking of my favorites after it goes past the first.

That is so incredibly true - The Princess Bride is indeed the greatest movie of all time ever. :)

Oy

1) Amadeus.
This is my favorite movie. The dramatized story of Mozart and his decent into crazyland before dying of typhoid fever (? don't know if that's been proven as his cause of death). Watching this movie over and over as a child is why I play piano and love classical music. Don't rent it, buy it.

2) Yellow Submarine.
The most tripped out and optimistic children's movie ever. I have it memorized, me and my mom used to watch this when I was little. Show this film to your kids people, they'll love it. This film started my obsession with The Beatles.


3) Star Wars, original triology. I have a 6ft cut out of Han Solo in my room. Nerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrd.
