My Top 10

If you tell someone that you love movies, the next four words out of their mouth are – inevitably – “What’s your favorite movie?” I made this list so that I don’t have to answer that question anymore. I just send them a link, and they generally don’t ask again.

10. Jurassic World

Chris Pratt. Need I say more? That, and everything else wonderful about this most recent addition to my list. Read my review on it here!

9. Sgt. Bilko

Steve Martin holds a special place in my heart, and this movie is a good summation of everything that I love about him.

8. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves

Despite the fact that it’s two and a half hours long, I adore this Kevin Costner adaptation of the classic story.

7. Much Ado About Nothing

At every writer’s core, there’s a little Shakespeare compartment that’s either full of intense love or intense hate. I happen to fall into the former category, and this is my favorite film adaptation to date.

6. The Whole Nine Yards

This is my go-to sick movie. Granted, if I’m watching it, I’m usually puking, but that does not lessen my enjoyment. Matthew Perry appears as basically the same character he played on Friends (who happens to be my favorite character on Friends), alongside Bruce Willis as a contract killer.

5. White Christmas

I’ve been watching this movie since before I can even remember, and to this day I can’t make it more than a few months after Christmas without breaking down and watching it again. But it’s not actually a Christmas movie (read about that here), so it’s okay.

4. The Wedding Singer

Arguably, one of the only quality movies Adam Sandler has ever done. I won’t say all of his other movies are bad, but they are few and far between – especially these days. This one, however, is absolutely adorable and so pleasantly embedded with the 80’s.

3. Big Fish

Ewan McGregor is my favorite actor, and this is one of two of his movies that make the list (the second is my #1). Every time I watch this movie, I love it more because a little bit more of its intricate plot comes to light. It’s a wonderfully full-circle story.

2. Saving Mr. Banks

When I was little, Mary Poppins was one of my favorite movies. So, when they made a movie about the making of the movie, I was first in line to see it. I expected a feel-good Disney classic, and what I got was a heart-wrenching, brutally emotional movie that inspired my only tattoo and changed my entire life.

1. Moulin Rouge

There are no words for how much this movie means to me. It’s a story about love.
