Top Ten Movie Blogfest

I returned to work this morning after an unexpected 3.5 day sabatical with my buddy influenza (fastest diet in the world, by the way). It's been a great morning; in the process of sanitizing my desk, I knocked a full Venti into my lap, and spent an hour cleaning up the mess. Now, I'm sitting in my office and waiting for my clothes to dry in the Home Ec. room.

While browsing my news feed, I discovered the Top Ten Movie Blogfest being hosted by Alex Cavanaugh. It's been a long time since I participated in one of these blogfests, but I do love movies, and I do love top ten lists. So at the eleventh hour, I'm whipping something up. Enjoy.

10. Josh and S.A.M.


9. The Ernest Green Story

8. Freedom Writers

7. Memento

6. Changeling

5. Seven Pounds

4. The Fugitive

2. Who Framed Roger Rabbit

1. Chicago

What's Yours?


  1. I'm pretty much amazed you've got two films on here I haven't heard of. I'll have to look them up.

  2. I've seen exactly three of the movies on your list. I'm not okay with getting a 30%, so I'll probably be checking out a few of them soon, namely 'Josh and S.A.M.' 'Chicago' and 'Freedom Writers' (I have the book, but never saw the movie.)

    1. You are lucky! I have only seen 1 movie out of all the 10.
      I think you know the reason. *Ahem*

      No wait, I've seen 'Freedom Writers' too!

      Okay, I'm just one behind you.

  3. 9 and 10 are the only two i haven't seen. Vaguley remember hearing about Josh and S.A.M. but not the other. Great list.

  4. Great list. Seven Pounds was awesome.

  5. Roger Rabbit was fun, so was the ride at Disneyland. Hubs still talks about Jessica Rabbit.
    I liked Minority Report too.

  6. Very inspired choices, Paul, especially considering the tardiness of your entry! Being so immersed in film, I'd think that I'd actually seen all of these films. Nope. Changeling and Seven Pounds elude me. I suppose I'll have to rectify that void in my cinematic education.

    Great post, pal :)

  7. Memento! Very awesome. Bring the big brain for that one.
    Thanks for participating in my blogfest, Paul!

  8. I need to check out most of them...

    But, since I liked Forrest Gump so much, I'm okay with the fact that I've only watched two of the ten.

  9. Freedom Writers! I forgot about that movie, but ooh do i love it!

  10. I love that you have a musical in the mix. So few people do.

  11. My favorite from your list is Forrest Gump. Not just a great movie, but an awesome soundtrack!

  12. Just dropping in from the blog hop (late I know!) to say that while our lists don't overlap I can appreciate the variety of it. :3


Feeling kind? Leave me some love.
