Top 10.... Movies!

So as my mom reminds me every few days (and Jenni too!) I haven't blogged lately.  To get myself back in the groove I've decided to do a few days of "Top 10"... my top 10 movies, TV shows, actors, places to go or that I have been, etc.  Maybe you can share yours too!

1. Lord of the Rings- LOVE IT!  I sat outside a theater, in the cold, overnight waiting for the third movie to be released.  They also played the first two extended editions leading up to it.  And I was in heaven. Dork heaven. But I'm good with it.

2. Wizard of Oz- I played Dorothy in my high school play.  I still have all the songs memorized and will bust out singing them at any time.  Who doesn't love a ruby slipper?

3. Under the Tuscan Sun- I just love everything this movie represents.  Freedom, finding things you never thought you wanted, owning an amazingly awesome house in freaking Italy...

4. Clueless- I have seen this movie more times that I could count.  It's fun, ridiculous, and more fun.  RIP Brittany Murphy.

5. Toy Story- Who can resist this movie? I took my kids to see the midnight release of the third movie and proceeded to hide my face while I bawled. Such a good movie. Please don't grow up J1&J2.

6. High School Musical- Apparently we're getting to the children's portion of my list. The kids and I watched all three of these movies, bought the soundtracks, went to the musical ON A SUNDAY (EEK! We paid for it though with strep throat... dang karma!) Nuff said.

7. Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion- I didn't say my tastes were high brow- this is just a classic fun movie.

8. Pretty Woman- Really who doesn't like the movie where the main character is a hooker and ends up with a hot rich guy?  Plus Julia Roberts with red curly hair makes me swoon a little *don't judge!*

9. Point of No Return (La Femme Nikita)- Bridget Fonda gets a second chance. Loved the TV series, loved the movie, love, love, love.

10. Son in Law- again with the brow. But this is Pauly Shore at his best.

Honorable mentions to The Little Mermaid, Matrix, and Big Daddy.  Just because this is my blog and I can.

What's in your DVD collection?
