  1. I like movies, but I rarely watch them more than once, so when I think of favorites I think of the ones that made me think, made me laugh, made me feel something.

    The Sixth Sense – best mind blowing reveal I have ever seen. I have never before or since heard the entire audience in a movie theater gasp out the same line about a movie. “OMG, he’s dead” will always be a part of my movie memories.

    The Stand – One of the very few movies I will watch more than once. I don’t like scary movies, but loved the freaky aspects of this one.

    Ferngully, The Last Rainforest – Robin Williams as Batty was brilliant. I liked him better here than as Aladdin’s Genie. Plus it appeals to my environmentalist side.

    Shelter – After I read TJ Klune’s BOATK, he said people were accusing him of ripping off this movie, so I had to watch it. Loved the movie! Loved the book! They are not the same! A similar premise does not a duplicate make. For example, Star Trek Deep Space Nine and Babylon Five are based on similar premises but are completely different series.

    Firefly: Thankfully they finished a series I had fallen in love with! Even if the spoiler alert parts about broke my heart. Only reason I am glad the series ended is that I love the series Castle.

    Other animated: Toy Story series, Final Fantasy, Spirits Within, How to Train a Dragon; all for very different reasons.

    There are just too many movies out there, that are favorites for different reasons. Like, I love both Sean Connery and Vin Diesel for how they sound as much as how they act so will put on their movies & listen with my eyes closed. When actors do something different, their movies appeal: like Danny Devito and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the movie Twins. Then you have people who can act! Al Pacino in Scent of a Woman, Jack Nicholson in As Good As it Gets.

    “The Millers” is one of my favorites because I have not laughed that hard in ten years of movies. Even if the movie was not especially outstanding, it appealed to my adult woman in her 40’s sense of humor in a way that the newest crops of comedic actors just can’t do.

    I understand why you only want the “Five Top Ones”, but taking the time to really decide on five made me think about the reasons why I like them the most.

    Of course, if they make a Doctor Who movie in theaters, then my list will have to change. Doesn’t even matter which Doctor…they are all favorites for different reasons.
