My Top 50ish Movies

Tina and Lisa are listing their top 60 movies, of all time on their blogs and invited me to join in. How could I resist? A chance to list my favorite movies, I’m in.

Then I started to think about all the movies I really love and that have impacted me in some way or another by their humor, social conscience, story or characters and I found that I could only think of 50 that I would categorize as my top movies.

So here are my top 50 movies in random order:

4. Crash
5. Memento

  1. This was interesting. I may have to do this in my own blog (another time though as I just wrote an entire post about my favorite eateries!).

    I enjoyed seeing your list. We share many favorites: #1, 2, 6, 14, 15, 19, 20, 22, 23, 37, 38 39, 40, 43, 49.

    #33 (Sense and Sensibility) is one of my most favorite movies ever.

  2. Movies are great! I can’t wait to see your list when your fingers rest from coming up with local restaurants 🙂
