[music |Nascar? Why!?!]

All right.. this is for everyone. I am planning on seeing a bunch of films that I haven't seen because I think I need to expand my cinematic experiences.. and I'd like to compile a list, and I'll start with the most popular and go from there.. unless I've all ready seen them of course. My idea is that we'll all be introduced to some great movies this way. :) As such.. I'm asking you each to post your five favorite movies.

Mine are in no particular order.

-- Life is Beautiful
-- The Princess Bride
-- Finding Neverland
-- Schindlers List
-- Blazing Saddles


Now your turn. :)

I'll post the top ten as well once I figure you've all had a chance to reply.

I stage managed the play production of Bang Bang You're Dead. I didn't even know that SHowtime had done a film version. How did they do it? Did they do the Twinkle Twinkle section?

Empire Records. Man I have to see that again, it has been AGES!

Little Fact: The original "Reefer Madness" was originally titles "Tell Your Children". I never knew that until I saw "Reefer Madness: The Musical". The film is amazing... Alan rocks (of course)!

Lots of Holy Grail goodness here. If any of you are in New York, you really gotta go and see Spamalot from all I hear. It's the musical broadway version of Holy Grail. :)

IsHitch the one with Will Smith?

The Railway Children

Ooh! What's The Railway Children about? Is that a classic about kids going on the Orphan Train? It's ringing a bell.. I'm just not sure if it's teh right bell.

And you're right, it's very interesting to see!

Emmy Rossum's in The Day After Tomorrow so I'm kinda boycotting it because I hate her. :)

I Reeeeally want to see Eternal Sunshine. I love Kate Winslet.
