Top 5 Tuesday- Movies

I'm not sure why, but I have a really tough time coming up with my top 5 favorite movies of all time. There are so many to choose from! I guess I'll go with 5 that I could watch over and over and over again and still enjoy them. There are plenty of movies that I absolutely loved when I saw them, but somehow they lose their magic after seeing them once or twice.

So here we go, my top 5 movies of all time (in no particular order)
  1. Girls Just Want to Have Fun- it's simply cheestastic! Gotta love the old school SJP, Helen Hunt, Shannen Doherty, and Jonathan Silverman!
  2. The Man in the Moon- If you love Reese Witherspoon and/or Jason London you have to see it...but bring a box of tissues!
  3. Pirates of the Caribbean- I didn't expect to like it at all when Kevin suggested that we go see it in the theater, but I flippin' LOVED it! How could you not? It's hysterically funny, and you get to watch Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom for a few hours. Can't go wrong.
  4. Sixteen Candles- What self-respecting girl in her 30's could have a top 5 movie list and not include at least 1 John Hughes film? I still lust after Jake Ryan. That little smirk gets me every single time.
  5. I know that it's cheating, but I think I'm going to have to go with a tie for #5... First there is Amadeus- What can I say? Mozart rocks. Tom Hulce is awesome! And keeping in the same sort of genre, there is Valmont. Ok, so apparently I have a thing for men with accents sporting tights. So what? It's hot.

What are your top 5 movies of all time?
Come join in the fun at Supernanny Where Are You? and see what other people out in bloggywood are watching.

Yes, it was hard to do this list for me too. There are just too many to choose from. I've never seen the Man in the Moon. I LOVE Pirates of the Carribbean, all of them. GJWHF was a favorite as well. Oh, heck they're all good, and now you've reminded me of some I neeed to watch again! Thanks for playing!

I love Sixteen Candles! What a great movie. I know what you mean about having a hard time picking top 5- I thought it would take me 5 minutes, it ended up taking forever because I couldn't decide!

Hey wow!! I loved the Man in the Moon too, it was just so cute. Reese Witherspoon was so young back then, it seems so long ago, lol! I loved the Pirates movies too, they were great. What's not to love about Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom :-)????

Ahhh, Jake Ryan....so dreamy. That scene in the gym where she is trying to figure out how to go up to him and say hi and then he comes into the coat room and says hi. Love it!!

I have never seen GJWHF and Amadeus. I should add them to the Netflix queue.

I can't believe after watching Girls Just Wanna Have Fun over and over, I forgot about Helen Hunt, Shannen Doherty, and Jonathan Silverman! Ah, I spent many hours watching that movie in my early teens!

Also LOVE The Man in the Moon - what an awesome coming of age story. And I think the first movie I ever saw Reese in. Even then, she was great!
