Getting To Know Me Part II (movies)

You are what you eat, they say, and although I resent the implication that I might be a chicken drumstick, I find the idea of getting to know a person by what they like and dislike to be true-ish.

So, for all those out there who are interested, here is a list of my ten favorite movies (not necessarily in the right order):

  1. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005)
  2. The Wisdom of Crocodiles (1998)
  3. K-Pax (2001)
  4. In the Bedroom (2001)
  5. Hellboy (2004)
  6. Mystery Men (1999)
  7. Quills (2000)
  8. The Boat That Rocked (2009); a.k.a. Pirate Radio for all those poor people in the U.S. who will only see the cut version.
  9. The Mummy Returns (2001)
  10. Sunshine (2007)

Honourable mentions should go to Condorman (1981), which was my first favourite movie ever, back when I was little more than a semi-conscious blob, and to Ladyhawke (1985), which was my favourite movie when I was a slightly more conscious blob that thought that Matthew Broderick was cute and that Rutger Hauer had to be an A-list actor. (I had only seen Blade Runner and Ladyhawke at that point… an easy mistake to make under those circumstances.)

I’m sure I’ve forgotten something, but that’s usually the way it is.

  1. I LOVE Ladyhawke. Mostly because the dialogue is hysterical. And I too loved “The Mummy Returns”. Glad I’m not the only one out there who did (what is the appeal of the first one? I don’t get it).
    Here’s my list (also not necessarily in order):
    1. Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
    2. Serenity
    3. House of Flying Daggers
    4. The Princess Bride
    5. Tomb Raider
    6. Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within
    7. Moulin Rouge
    8. Wall-E
    9. Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
    10. Princess Mononoke
