After a dinner conversation with friends tonight about the two movies we would take if stranded on an island, I decided to attempt a list of my favorite films (see my top two below). This actually makes for very interesting conversation and is a great way to get to know people better. We were very surprised when DD said "Duece Bigelow" would be one of her picks. Here is a longer list of films I consider worth watching.
Here is my short list of perfect films ("10 out of 10" rating).
A Cry From Iran. The most sacred film I've ever seen.
Princess Bride. Amazing, amusing, great for a family.
Napoleon Dynamite. Beautifully quirky.
What About Bob? So many good lines.
She's Having a Baby. loved it when I was single, then when I was married without kids, and finally when married and trying to start a family (haven't seen it since then...our son is now 20).
Ok, that's four comedies in a row. Yes, I like comedies.
Dark Knight. Brilliantly dark film making.
A Separation. Amazing cross-cultural study of choices and consequences. Best foreign film I've ever seen.
