Top 10 Movie Blogfest

Today I am participating in the Top Ten Movie Blogfest hosted by Alex Cavanaugh.

I love to watch movies! and my favorites are always changing.  So these are some movies that I would sit and watch right now, if I had a lot of free time :)

Princess Bride
This movie has been a favorite for a long time.  So quoteable.  So fun.  And I love Cary Elwes.

Romancing the Stone
I had to put this one on the list, because recently I have been feeling like the main character, Joan Wilder.  I have a brown puffy coat, and every time I wear it I think of her.  Now if I could just become a published author, like her :)

The Craft
I love movies about witches.  The fact that one witch is crazy just makes it all the better.

Practical Magic
Another witch movie. 

Last of the Mohicans
Daniel Day Lewis.  A classic love story.

In the Name of the Father
Based on the true story of the Guilford Four who were falsely accused of being IRA.  Great movie.  Great book.  And Daniel Day Lewis is in it :)

Grandma's Boy
Video game testers and stoned grandmas.  Need I say more?  Another very quoteable movie.  I find myself saying lines from this movie all the time.

Across the Universe
A movie based on The Beatles' music.  I love it!

Original Star Wars Trilogy
Anytime I see these movies on the tv, I have to stop and watch.  Such a classic.  I was so disappointed when the first three episodes were made.  They did not live up to the standard set by episodes 4-6.

Bram Stoker's Dracula
I fell in love with Gary Oldman's young Dracula after watching this movie. 

Are you participating in the blogfest?  What are your favorite movies?


  1. Princess Bride just missed my top ten. And forgot about Last of the Mohicans.
    Thanks for participating in my blogfest!

    1. It was a very enjoyable blogfest. Thanks for running it!

  2. Princess Bride is a great one, enjoyed Grandma's by too.

  3. "I'm romancing the stone/never leaving your poor heart alone/every night and every day/gonna love the hurting awaaaaaaaay..." :-) All these 80s flicks I'm coming across in this Hop are hitting me with some serious nostalgia!

  4. I love witch movies, too, and Practical magic is one of my all time favorites!

  5. I've only seen about half of these but they were all good ones.

  6. Love The Craft. It's one of my favorite comfort movies. And Practical Magic is wonderful too!
