Getting Back To Basics

Many moons ago, in a town not so far away, this blog used to do lists. Top Ten's of all sorts of things important to me. Well... as it's my 8th blogaversary month it's time to update them don't you think?

My first "Silly List" was movies and went a little bit like this:

My Favorite Movie's
1. The Living End
2. Dogma
3. American Perfekt
4. The Brady Bunch Movie
5. Jurassic Park
6. Alien
7. Masters Of The Universe
8. The Talented Mr. Ripley
9. The Matrix
10. Coyote Ugly

Other films that didn’t quite make it:- Jeffrey, A Beautiful Thing, Trick, Jaws, Predator (and any other Arnie movie ever), and The Doom Generation.

Quite a mixed bag indeed... so what does it look like now...

1. The Living End
2. Dogma
3. The Love Of Siam
4. Beautiful Thing
5. Let The Right One In
6. Jurassic Park
7. Alien
8. Masters Of The Universe
9. The Talented Mr. Ripley
10. Grizzly Man

Honourable Mentions: Transformers, Iron Ladies, Sommersturm, The Brady Bunch Movie, Jeffrey, Trick, Jaws, American Perfekt, Predator (and any other Arnie movie ever), and The Doom Generation.

The main change is the entrance into my life of the foreign language movie. Once I was blind to anything outside of Hollywood, but now I see that there are a great many awesome movies made that are not in the English language. Of course that doesn't mean such Jason Classic's as The Living End or Jurassic Park were going to ever leave the Top Ten and it was pretty difficult to fit any other movies in there. One things for sure, I've seen a load of amazing movies in the last few years since this little piece of the internet was claimed by me.

Tommorrow... music... eek!

  1. I have seen only two of these films -- the same two from each list -- and they are favorites. I liked Tom Ripley so much that I just read all five of Patricia Highsmith's Ripley novels.
