Top Ten Movie Countdown Blogfest

I've been fighting a flu for the past week and a half so I wasn't sure whether I'd be able to participate in this exciting blogfest hosted by none other than Alex J. Cavanugh. Thank you Alex!

I'm feeling a bit better, but still with a fever. Hopefully some sun will warm up my bones and make me all healthy:) To top it off, I ventured out skiing this past Saturday with the family to finish off the skiing season.
That's right, me, with a fever, skiing (a bit drugged on all the advil) with the family. Hey, I couldn't miss the end of the season, could I. When I get a chance I'll post some cool pictures and maybe a video:)



Now, here are my top ten favorite movies: ) These are in no particular order, as that would be way too hard!!! They all touched my heart and have been part of my life in different ways.


Back to the Future: Only because I watched it over one hundred times as a kid, but it's a close call with number two.

Lord of the Rings Trilogy: I don't think I have to explain this one












Twilight: Yes, please feel free to squirm, but I wouldn't be a writer if it weren't for this movie, so it really means a lot to me.












Titanic: I went to a midnight screening with my hubby and left pretty early in the morning. It's one of those movies a box of tissues is necessary.










Aliens: My fave when I was in school. I still love Aliens and can watch it over and over again. 










 
Dirty Dancing: makes me feel very warm and fuzzy inside.













The Never Ending Story:I think this is one of the first fantasy movies I've watched.













Star Wars: What George Lucas did for the movie industry and effects will go down in history. I adore Star Wars!












 Labyrinth: I bought this one just last year for my kids and they loved it as much as I did when I was young. And David Bowie never looked hotter (even in tights)













Ever After: I don't know what it is about this movie, but yes, I own this one too, and can watch it over and over again.











Stigmata:  I know, quite different than the other ones, but I really love this movie. It sends chills down my spine every time I watch it.











Too bad we can only pick ten. There are tons more I love. I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone else picked! 

Are any of these your faves?

You have some truly great movies on your list. I have seen them all bar one (is now a good time to admit I've never seen Titanic? :)). Aliens is my favourite of the series and my husband and I upgraded to the blu-ray box set just so we could watch it in HD. Labyrinth is also stunning - I remember when it came out and watching things about the making of it on Saturday morning television.

I squirmed quite a bit haha, great list though, beside the squirmy one.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Aliens and LOTR both rock! If they're on TV, I'm sucked in right away.
Thanks for participating in my blogfest!

David P. King said...

Neverending Story. Ever After. Yeah. This is a list that makes me want to watch some great movies again. :)

Sus said...

Great list! I love these movies. I forgot about the Neverending Story. God, the agent of the Nothing used to scare me soooo much! And Artax sinking in the swamp was the saddest thing I've ever seen. Oh god, where are the tissues...

DL Hammons said...

I am squirming! :) You have some inspired choices here! :)

After reading your post, I am looking forward to this. Your post is particular useful, plz keep going. Sometimes I sell runescape accounts to gain more money.

Roland D. Yeomans said...

I hope your fever is down even more, and you are feeling better. I see we both picked ALIENS. :-)

Stephen Tremp said...

We both have Back To The Future. My kids love that series too. Glad to see it passing on to a new generation.

You're a romantic I see. Nice picks. I'm glad you included Dirty Dancing - loved that one. Titanic was extremely well done too.

Be well, Marta.

Hope you feel better soon!

LD Masterson said...

I haven't seen all of these but the ones I did see I loved. Nice choices.

I hope you feel better.

I'm suprised how many people have Neverending Story on their list. Or maybe I shouldn't be surprised ;)

Ciara said...

I LOVE Ever After. It's one of those movies I watch over and over again.
