My fave is Dirty Dancing, the original one. I'm a sucker for romantic films and the dance was just sizzling hot.

Well, some of my favorites would be Notting Hill (which already made your list), You've Got Mail, Princess Bride, and all of the Lord of the Rings movies.

Great list, lots of good ones on there!

Christina said...

Great list! Oh, there are SO many movies I could nominate, many of them so cheesy that I'm a bit ashamed to mention them.

I will nominate the Sound of Music. I love the music and the cinematography in that one.

Shannon said...

Blues Brothers. Nothing better or funnier.

Happy Thursday!

Spikey1 said...

Oh I forgot to add Nemo, Toy Story, Monsters Inc, and Shrek! (According to The Boy of course)

The Schooligan said...

Best is Show is a riot!
Have you seen Walk the Line yet? If not, RUN don't walk to the video store and check it out.

Barbara H. said...

Loved Sense and Sensibility! It's one of my most-often-watched.

Another is Little Women with Winona Ryder.

Uisce said...

You've got my #1 as your #1, so I don't think I've got anything to add! :) OK, I'm quite partial to The Blues Brothers movie.

Chelle Y. said...

I like Sense and Sensibility. :)

scribbit said...

I don't know if I could come up with a good companion to that eclectic mix. I haven't seen that many on your list . . . Notting Hill was good.

Mrs Lifecruiser said...

All the Mr Bean episodes of Rowan Atkinson, not the real movies. I love him... Next after Mr Lifecruiser! *lol*

Wystful1 said...

What? No Johnny Depp movies? (laughing)

I live for movies.

I really like For a Few Good Men. That one I can watch over and over.

On my list --
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid without a doubt...starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford--the best western around. And oldie (1969, I think) but goodie.

The new 2004 Phantom of the Opera

Of course, Gone with the Wind

Cellular is good also. Intense, but well done.

Oh, and a couple of funny ones is It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and Cannonball Run.

More or less, Science Fiction would be Jaws

Now, I'm off to catch up on your blog. Thanks for the visit...Today, on my blog, I have a bit of Corpus Christi Texas and a bit of culture. :o)

Blond Girl said...

My T13 is up.

Well, for comedy, I would have to say "My Cousin Vinny". And for a drama, "Searching for Private Ryan". I saw Private Ryan only once and wept for 20 minutes after. The impact that movie had on me was profound. We own it now and I still can't bring myself to watch it again - but it is still with me.

kailani said...

Either Field of Dreams or Shawshank Redemption.

Cheeky said...

Oh my there are sooooooo many - just can't pick just one

Natalie said...

my favourite would have to be something with adam sandler, probably Happy Gilmore.

Laurie said...

Oh most defininately: Sweet Home Alabama :-)

Brony said...

So many great movies to choose from. My number one is Empire of the Sun.

Happy TT!

Candy Minx said...

There are so many, but based on your other 12, I'll nominate "Planes, Trains and Automobiles"

Jenny Ryan said...

Oh I LOVE A Few Good Men. I've lost track of how many times I've watched that movie!

Gracie said...

"Down With Love!" Love that movie!
The twist in the end is only really great the first time, but it's still such a well-made movie, ti's still enjoyable to watch over and over. :)

Tina Frawley said...

Hi. I'm so happy to see that your No.1 movie is "So I married an axe murderer". I too, love that movie. Cracks me up every single time. In fact, would you believe that just last week, I saw it on the shelf on DVD. Needless to say, it was an easy purchase for me. No more video...hurray!!

I'm late in getting here for last week. But, better late than never!

I love anything Tom Hanks is in! Love some of the others as well.

Thanks for visiting!
