@VickiBatman - The Top Ten, er, Two Top Tens!!! #movieaddict #MFRWorg #warfilms

The Top Ten, er...Two Top Tens!!!

On Facebook, someone is always posting something about movies or great lines from movies, and I often respond to these topics as I LOVE movies. So when someone mentioned their top ten movie list, I wondered what my top ten are.
I thought about what would make my list. I decided the Number One factor is if the movie is on TV, would I automatically tune in? Would I watch because I love it and every single time I see it, I get the same what a wonderful film feeling?
I found I have a Top Twenty or Two Top Tens. In no specific order:

Mr. Roberts – the making scotch scene is hilarious and William Powell’s last       
It’s a Wonderful Life

Stalag 17 – William Holden is brilliant.





Sixteen Candles
Breakfast Club
Philadelphia Story – “C K Dexter Haaavvveeen” scene and Cary Grant

White Christmas – great songs
Raiders of the Lost Ark –Did you see it FOUR times when it was released?
Casablanca




Bridget Jones’s Diary


Love Actually
His Girl Friday – the snappiest dialogue ever and irresistible Cary Grant

Man Who Shot Liberty Valance – there’s a real conundrum in this one




Silverado
M*A*S*H*
Rebecca –I often pontificate on this gothic mystery.
Rear Window – a peeping photographer sees a murder
The Quiet Man – John Wayne should have won an Oscar for this one.
The Thin Man
Millions





So what did I discover about my list?
6 Christmas-ish movies
4 War films
2 by director John Hughes
3 by director John Ford
2 by director Alfred Hitchcock
2 featuring Cary Grant
2 featuring William Powell – yup, big fan
Some are funny.
Some are mysterious.
Some are adventurous.

Please share your top three!
