Let me start off by clearing the air.  I am not trying to come off as some snobby movie geek or uppity film connoisseur.  I am just an average ol’ dame who loves to watch movies.  Albeit, my friends think I have a very random (I say eclectic) selection of cinematic favorites.  My tastes in film run all over the genre map.  From 50s & 60s classics, action & adventure, cult classics, International, anime, comedy, to 80s teeny bopper movies…I like a little bit of everything (just like my taste in music)!

Over these past few weeks, I’ve been continuously watching movies from my Netflix queue, & that prompted me to want to write up this post.  This is probably more for my own self-pleasure than anything else, but I wanted to write up a list of my favorite movies just to see what pops up.  I’ve tried to explain a few of these movie titles with my husband (who’s also a big movie fan).  However, he is neither interested in, nor does he recognize, any movie that’s been produced before 1989.

Here, I present to you, a brief list of my cinematic favorites (in no particular order):

  • RIO (animated movie)
  • Battle Royale + Battle Royale II: Requiem (1st movie + the sequel)
  • Ratatouille (animated movie)
  • Paradise Kiss (Japanese language)
  • Finding Nemo (animated movie)
  • Hachimitsu to Kuroba / Honey & Clover (Japanese language)
  • Pillow Talk
  • Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist
  • How To Steal A Million
  • Rear Window
  • Hana Yori Dango Final / Boys Over Flowers Final (Japanese language)
  • Tekkon Kinkreet (animated movie)
  • Easy A
  • Wait Until Dark
  • Charade
  • Mary Poppins
  • The Bourne Identity / The Bourne Supremacy / The Bourne Ultimatum
  • Gone In 60 Seconds (Nicolas Cage version)
  • Breakfast At Tiffany’s
  • North By Northwest
  • Madagascar + Madagascar 2: Escape 2 Africa (animated movies)
  • Ocean’s 11 (both Frank Sinatra version & George Clooney version + Ocean’s 12 & Ocean’s 13)
  • Escape From Alcatraz
  • My Fair Lady
  • The Life Acquatic with Steve Zissou
  • Youth In Revolt
  • Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea (both Japanese language & English language animated movies)
  • Cars + Cars 2 (animated movies)
  • Fast Five
  • Disney/Pixar’s Up! (animated movie)
  • Transformers / Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen (didn’t like movie #3…especially Rosie Huntington-Whitely’s acting!)
  • Kiroii Namida / Yellow Tears (Japanese language)
  • Kill Bill Vol. 1 + Kill Bill Vol. 2
  • Sex And The City + Sex And The City 2 (These movies are corny to say the least, but come on…they’re my 2 guilty pleasures!)
