30 Days of Bloggity Bloggness: Day 7

Day 7: Your Favorite Movie

It is impossible for me to answer this question with just one movie.  I’ve never been able to pinpoint “just one”.  I love movies.  I love really good movies with really clever dialogue and really great actors.  I love fun action movies.  I love thrillers that make you think.  I love sagas.  I love war movies.

So, here are a few that immediately came to mind and started warring with me as “favorite”:

Band of Brothers

I realize this was a television series.  But, I feel like it needs to be included in movies.  The production was incredible.  When I start watching them, I can’t stop until I’ve seen them all.


This movie superseded just average brilliance.  The acting could not be matched.  I mean, you have Kurt Russell, Val Kilmer, Michael Biehn, Bill Paxton, AND Sam Elliott on one screen- how could you beat that?  The dialogue never stopped being amazing.  “I’m your Huckleberry,” will forever be recognized as a tagline from that movie.  BRILLIANT movie.  Loved it.

King Arthur

Clive Owen was a great Arthur.  I enjoyed this telling of the legend from beginning to end.  I’ve watched it several times since I saw it in the theater and love it more every time.


Likely my favorite suspense movie.  Silly, I know.  I think it comes from my enjoyment of Bill Paxton and Michael Biehn.

The Book of Eli

Denzel Washington quoting the Bible.  Enough said.

The Gospel of John

The entire book of John, verbatim.  If it’s not in the Bible, it’s not in the movie.  Henry Ian Cusick played a strong Jesus, not a “gentle-Jesus-meek-and-mild.”  The production was awesome.

Die Hard

Bruce Willis blowing up terrorists.  I’m in.

Captain America

I think this was one of the best Marvel productions to date.  I cannot wait for The Avengers to be released.

Batman Begins

Speaking of superheroes…this is my favorite Batman.  I didn’t think anyone could ever replace Michael Keaton, but Christian Bale certainly did.

The Princess Bride

I don’t know that this being included on the list requires any explanation.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith

I loved this movie.  Well acted, lots of fun.

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Probably my favorite action movie of all time.  Until I start thinking about it, then I think of a dozen more.  Much like what happened when I started writing this list.

Children of Men

Dark, enticing, confusing, WELL acted.  Michael Cain, Clive Owen.  Loved it.


Here’s looking at you, kid.

Did any of your favorite movies make my list?  What kind of movies do you like?
