Silver Screen Challenge

Someone asked me recently what my favorite movie was. I had a hard time deciding because it really depends on the genre. But it got me thinking about the movies I like best (and worst), so I thought I'd do a little break down...

Funniest Movie: Raising Arizona (although the first time I saw Money Pit, I laughed harder than I've ever laughed at any movie)
Scariest Movie: I Am Legend
Worst Movie Ever: The Hunted or Hell Boy 2
Most Romantic Movie: A Room With A View
Most Boring Movie: 7 Years In Tibet (aka 7 Years In the Movie Theater. Of course, this may have something to do with the fact that I saw this in a semi-indoor theater in Nepal, sitting on a wooden bench in 55 degree weather with a parka and gloves on)
Best Romantic Comedy: Fever Pitch
Most Exciting Movie: Either Mission Impossible or one of the Bourne movies. (I'm sure there's something better, but I can't think of it just now).
Best Feel-Good Movie: The Power of One
Most Disturbing Movie: Strange Days
Best Animated Movie: Ooo, tough call. Flushed Away for funniness, Monsters Inc for cuteness and amazing animation.
Best Movie To Watch Over and Over Again: Princess Bride
Best Movie of All Time: Again, this is hard to choose. But I'd have to say the movie I love more than all others is Sense and Sensibility. I know it's not for everyone, but I just love it so much, no matter how many times I watch it.

What about you?

I love Good Will Hunting and So I Married an Axe Murderer.

Oh, and The Book of Mormon movie or anything to do with Jesus, of course.

I love your list. Princess Pride, Raising Arizona and Sense and Sensibility are all in my top 10.

I felt oh-so-cool to get a comment from you. Thanks!

The first time the first Star Wars movie came out, It blew me right off the planet! It still does if it's on a big screen in a dark room with good sound. So that would be my all-time favorite.

I also love Cold comfort Farm, Princess Bride, and While You Were Sleeping.

I just saw the Premier Movie of #1 Ladies Detective Agency and was TOTALLY, ABSOLUTELY ENCHANTED!! If you haven't seen that, RUN, to your nearest library or video store. The photography& scenery were out of this world. And the acting utterly charming. I smiled all night.

Bourne movies are great, as is Flushed Away. Some honorable mentions are Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Reign Over Me.
