Top-Ten Tuesday - Top Ten Movies (at the moment)

The main reason I qualify this top ten list as "at the moment" is that my favorite movies can many times be skewed by a strong urge to watch a movie I love that I haven't seen in a while(Snatch and Willow below may be a result of this), though there will always be mainstays such as The Lion King, Fight Club, Labyrinth, and The Princess Bride.  Also, I'm sure if my wife reads this, she'll be able to name a couple movies that should be on the list that just didn't come to mind when I put it together.  Anyway, so as with my Top Ten Books, when it comes to series, I'm limiting myself to one movie from that series.  Here goes!

10. Snatch

9. Willow

8. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

7. Back to the Future II

6. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

I really wish Lucas and Spielburg stopped with this one.  Sigh.

5. Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

4. The Princess Bride

"Anybody want a peanut?"

3. Labyrinth

The fact that my three-year-old likes this movie already makes me prouder than I can express.

2. Fight Club

This is a love it or hate it movie, and I love it.

1. The Lion King

Don't judge me!



  1. I totally agree that the Lion King is simply amazing and timeless. I also think that Fight Club should be replaced with Episode V.

    1. You know, if I were to redo this list, it would probably end up in a different order . . . with The Neverending Story included.
