After a week off the league has called again and I must answer! This week it is a little less involved but still not easy! What are your top 10 favorite movies?
I keep my top three on tap fairly easily, but of late the ranking has been a bit off so I am not going at this by ranking any of these. I will put the three I usually say on the top but they do not represent my top 3 favorites any more. Also I am going to have a lot of cliche favorite nerd movies on this list. What can I say. . . I'm a cliche
The three that were at the top of my list for years were these:
Wayne's World - one of the first more grown up movies that I actually got. Plus I really like Dana Carvy!
Empire records - There was a summer (probably 1997 or 98 where I rented this movie and probably watched it 15 times in one weekend. I don't know why but it just kind of spoke to me! and it still does!
Bill and Ted's Excellent adventure - I remember begging my mom to take me to the theater to see this movie, and I never regretted it . . . but I think she does. For me it was about time travel and it was an obvious riff on doctor who. . . so I loved it!
Movies that make a bit more sense:
Flash Gordon - What is not to love about this movie. . . plus Brian Blessed as a hawk man!
Monty Python's search for the Holy Grail - Saw this movie for tghe first time when I was in 8th grade, after all of my friends talked about it so much. Also a life changer. I got a VHS copy at media play and the rest is history. . . there is a reason it is one of the most quoted movies ever!
The Star Wars Franchise - Really I should just put star Wars. I love the three original but the first one has always spoken to me the most. The early days of this movie were some of the best things out. the marvel comics I think made it a much more exciting story than what we eventually got.
this trailer is really interesting too. . . it really reminds you that they really had no idea about what the movie really was!
Masters of the Universe - A favorite as a kid for obvious reasons although at the time I didn't get the movie. Actually until recently I didn't get it! Now that I know a bit about Jack Kirby and the new gods it makes a lot more sense. I would recommend you checking it out again if you haven't in a while.
Transformers: The Movie - It was such a sad experience, to see optimums prime die. But it has a ton of rewatchability for me. a really good movie. . . so much better than the bay stuff!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - I saw the trailer to this movie at another movie and I didn't stop talking about the turtles trailer. . . I still quite like it!
Mystery Science Theater 3000- This is a movie I watch over and over and I still laugh at all of the jokes! It was a n odd choice to get a movie but it worked!
