Top Ten Favorite Movies

Posted on: November 9, 2010

Top Ten {Tuesday} I love movies. I think it stems from my great love of watching television. But I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t watch movies on a regular basis. Jonathan and I have spent a lot of time discussing our all time favorite movies {which is actually almost as fun as watching them, since you get to relive it!}. Without further ado, my top ten favorite movies of all time:

1. A Christmas Story – I quote this movie more than any other movie. And thanks to TBS’s movie marathon on Christmas Day, I’ve seen it more than any other movie.

2. Elf – Will Ferrell. In Tights. Enough said.

3. Meet the Parents – An equal favorite for Jon and I both, this movie is a classic comedy of showing just how wrong everything can go when you first “meet the parents”.

4. You’ve Got Mail – Such a happy movie. *sigh* Maybe I’m a sap, but I just love Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks together.

5. Labyrinth – The main character shares my name. My younger brother had just been born and I was struggling with the adjustment, just like the movie plot. Expect the Goblin King never did take Fletcher away.

6. Ocean’s 11/12 – Both movies are funny, action packed but not too crazy and just plain witty.

7. Bourne Trilogy – I’m a fan of action thrillers. Ones that make you think and stay with the plot line. And the Bourne movies do that so well.

8. Love in the Afternoon – I had a huge thing for Audrey Hepburn when I was younger. I watched so many of her movies, and LitA was my favorite.

9. Harry Potter Series – While I’m waiting on pins and needles for the 7th movie to come out {next week!!}, the first 6 have been really great {though not as great as the books}.

10. Family Stone – A dysfunctional family getting together for Christmas. Yep, pretty much sums up my entire family experience.

Pretty random list, I know. What can I say – I like a variety of movies.

What are some of your favorite movies?

I like your list, but The Princess Bride didn’t make it?

It was so close! I kept going back and forth on it. I love it, quote it a lot, but wasn’t sure if it made the top ten. Top twenty, or even top fifteen for sure. Hmmmm…. Maybe if I rematch it I’ll change my mind. 😉

Oh! I love Elf! I’m gonna have to go look for it now and put it somewhere where I know I’ll watch it before Christmas.

Oooh, I love You’ve Got Mail, too. And Notting Hill. And Love, Actually. And My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Now I want to go home and watch movies instead of sit at my desk and work! 🙂

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to just watch movies all day?!? 🙂 It’s like a dream come true.

Oh Sarah please don’t have anything to do with Harry Potter!

This is why…look in verse 20

Galatians 5:19-21

19Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20Idolatry, ,WITCHCRAFT hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Laryssa, thanks for sharing the verses with me. It’s something I’ve had to answer to several times, both for my own convictions and for other’s questions. While Harry Potter has a premise of witchcraft, I see it as a work of fiction. I KNOW the facts – my hope is in Christ alone, nothing or no one else. I do not see it as a stumbling block for myself and view HP very much the same as LOTR – another notable book about witchcraft.

I just bought my Harry Potter tickets today! Can’t wait until next Friday at 7pm! So sad that my kids are now too old to want to dress up! That is the only series that I have waited in line at Walmart at midnight for the books to come out and watched every movie on opening day! So exciting. I will cry when it is all over!

Laryssa- I have to agree with Sarah. It is work of fiction, and a brilliant one at that! If you are going to quote that verse to show why one shouldn’t watch/read Harry Potter, I assume you don’t watch many movies at all, unless they are rated G, and even most G movies (all Disney!) have things like “hatred” in them.

Ohh… So exciting!! We are going to a late show {have young girls that can’t go} but I am so looking forward to it! I keep watching the trailer over and over! Haha!
