31 movies.

I stole this from my lovely, perky, and rarely-sticky friend Adam. Like him, I'm doing it in one post rather than in 31 separate ones.  These were hard.  And my answers were surprising.

You do it too.  Then tell me where to find it so I can also read yours.

Okay, here's mine...

Day #1: Favorite Movie – When Harry Met Sally

Day #2: Least Favorite Movie – Krull.  (I loved this movie as a kid, then watched it again as an adult and wondered what the hell I was thinking!)

Day #3: Favorite Comedy – Monty Python & the Holy Grail. (Finally owning the DVD for this, and watching it with commentary, made it even better.)

Day #4: Favorite Adventure – Raiders of the Lost Ark. (I wanted to jump into the screen and do naughty things to Harrison Ford.  I still do.)

Day #5: Favorite Horror – Prince of Darkness. (This movie messed me up for days after.  Thanks, Roomie.)

Day #6: Favorite Suspense/Thriller – Sixth Sense

Day #7: Favorite Animated Movie – Futurama: Bender's Game

Day #8: Favorite Guilty Pleasure – 300. (I can watch my pretend boyfriend, and all his friends, in this movie over and over and over.)

Day #16: Favorite Movie Based On A Book – Lord of the Rings

Day #17: Favorite Movie With An Actor You Hate – Dogma.  (Love Jay & Silent Bob flicks!  Too bad Chris Rock was in it -- I'm sure he's very nice but he annoys me.)

  1. Absolutely The Matrix. I thought of that one when I read Adam's list.

    I don't even know if I could name 30 movies.

  2. @harmzie: I don't know -- I think you can name 30 movies. Why don't you steal this post and try it out? ;)

  3. You have great taste, on the whole, I am impressed!

    The only one I really disagree with is Rocky Horror. I can't stand it! Give me something like Young Frankenstein instead!

    Oh, and I would make The Matrix the most over-rated movie ever...

    Hope we are still friends!

  4. @Rock Chef: I LOVED Young Frankenstein! "Roll, roll, roll in the hay..." :)

  5. I'm glad we agree on Van Helsing. It could have been sofa king cool.

  6. I love love love When Harry Met Sally, too! And the movie I can watch on loop? Dazed and Confused. GOD, I love that movie. Ohhh, you think Top Gun is over-rated? Hmmm can't say I agree with you there... "I feel the need... the need for speed!" Maverick... Iceman... come on! ;) And I love 300. Totally awesome movie.

  7. @Loukia: Yeah, "Top Gun"... it was actually the only movie I could think of at the time. And Tom Cruise annoys me right now. Maybe I should change that to Titanic... hmmm...
