Movie Meme Mania

The Gig asked me post about movies. Here are some self-generated memes on movies to pass on.

Six Favorite Movies
1. The Tao of Steve
2. Simon Birch
3. The Color Purple
4. The Matrix Trilogy
5. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
6. Tombstone

Five Honorable Mention Good Movies
1. Benny and Joon
2. Silence of the Lambs
3. Edward Scissorhands
4. American Pie Trilogy--Hangs head in shame becuase it is not something a good friar should enjoy watching as much as I did.
5. TommyBoy

Four Movies I have Grown to Like, But Hated at First
1. American Beauty--At first just creepy. After watching it more than once was an interesting commentary.
2. When Harry Met Sally--hangs head in shame for admitting this to the men in the blogosphere.
3. Napolean Dynamite--Once I came to accept that it had no plot, I learned to love this movie.
4. Sideways--Did not like it at first, but it is one of those movies I keep coming back to in my mind, and may want to see again.

Three Least Favorite Movies of All Time
1. Waiting to Exhale--Stuck watching with mom and sis over Christmas. The drawback of being the only male in that crowd. The women in this story drove me crazy with their stupidity in relationships. Especially the Whitney Houston character.

2. Sleepless in Seattle--This movie was so corny that I wanted to just SCREAM. Instead I just mocked it incessantly.

3. Mrs Doubtfire--Could not stand this movie.

Two Movies Made Before 1985 that I liked
1. True Grit--Can a movie meme be complete without John Wayne?
2. Fiddler on the Roof--The only musical I have liked

One Movie I Recommend that I Doubt Anyone Has Seen
1. The Third Miracle--An interesting movie about doubt, faith, and the capriciousness of God through the character of a fallen priest.

I liked Sideways alot. We just saw it a couple weeks ago. I thought it would be one of those overrated award winning movies, but it was very entertaining. Made me want to drink some wine.

Wow, you gave me a lot of information. Whil you are dropping your head at movies you feel you shouldn't like, let me feel you in on the movies that I should be dropping my head at. "Dirty Dancing" used to be a favorite movie of mine. I watched it so much until I don't watch it anymore. Lately a movie came out called "Two people Can Play that Game," and while I cringed at the profanity and sexual inuendos, I got a big kick out of it. I have watched it several times two. I also like "When Harry Met Sally." "Pretty Woman," "Grease,"(Mostly romantic comedies). On the religious side, I like "the Story of Joseph," "The Ten Commandments, "Paul the Apostle," "Matthew," and many others which I have watched several times. I guess you might say that I am sort of versital (sp) when it comes to movies.

I keep looking at Sideways at Hastings, but have mixed emotions about seeing it, not sure I want to face the issues about me it might bring up... Fiddler on the Roof is like top 3 movies I love of all time!! I did like Mrs Doubtfire, but only a few times. When it is on the kids watch it, they have seen it like 10 times! Simon Birch - way too depressing! I hated American Beauty and Napoleon Dynamite, wonder if I saw them again I would think differently...probably not! HA
