DeeDee's Movie Meme

I love it when a fellow blogger does a meme just when I got nothin' to write.

DeeDee asks us to list our favorites and I am glad to oblige.

It appears that there is a divide in the blogosphere. There are English Patient people and non-English Patient people, which is odd because even the English patient was not an English Patient person. Wait until you see where I fall.

And I chuckle under my SnowCaps breath.

Here's my list.

The Movie Meme: (please list up to 3 per genre)

Favorite Comedy Film:
So I Married An Axe Murderer
Napoleon Dynamite
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

Favorite Romance Film:
The Notebook
Love Affair
The English Patient (gasp!)

Favorite Sci-Fi Movie:
The X Files, only because I am not a fan of Sci Fi but I am a fan of Mulder

Favorite Animated Movie:
Up
Charlotte's Web (the original)
Toy Story

Favorite Disaster Movie:
None, they all make me nuts with their lack of technical advisers

Favorite Christmas Movie:
A Christmas Story
How The Grinch Stole Christmas
(animated version)
I know I should list It's A Wonderful Life here but I really only watch it because it is on all the time.

Favorite Horror Movie:
None. They creep me out too much.

Movies With Music:
None. They make my ears bleed. I like my movies and my music the way I like my peas and carrots- not mixed together.

Favorite Book to Movie:
The Notebook
Fried Green Tomatoes
Message In A Bottle
(because I'm a sucker for Kevin Costner)

Favorite Classic:
Gone With The Wind
Schindler's List (not sure if it's a classic but it should be)
Rear Window

Favorite Chick Flick:
Sleepless In Seattle
Steel Magnolias
Hope Floats

Movie You Could Watch Ad Nauseum:
Forrest Gump
Christmas Story
Ferris Beuller's Day Off

Worst Movie of All Time:
Titantic (yep, I hated it. The acting was terrible and we totally knew where the plot was going.)
I know I'm gonna get some flack for that one. :>)

I'm Adding A Category For Movies I Like Without A Category:
Cable Guy
Edward Scissorhands

Top Gun (If you were a teen in the 80's, you know you loved it, too!)

Really? The English Patient???? I may need to watch it again to see if I missed something. Naaah. I don't think I could put myself through that again. :)

And I have to admit, I loved Titanic. Sigh.

But there's a whole bunch of stuff we agree on. THE NOTEBOOK!!! So, I still think you're all right...

A teen in the 80's (ugh. now I'm raising an almost teen, sigh.) ...yep, that was me, and I think at times during that movie, I actually thought I might have a chance with Tom Cruise. Now, I'd just say no thanks, Tom...I grew up and figured you out. But you still look hot in your flight jacket and RayBans and I adore your story of the Mig!

I completely agree with you on GWTW!!! My husband would agree with you on the musicals/movie. He can't do both at the same time!! LOL! Wonder where "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" would fit in???

Whoa-loved the list! I may join in on this one, although I'm not a huge movie person, at least not contemporary ones. I can't believe you listed Napoleon Dynamite. It takes a certain personality to appreciate it. I think it's hilarious.
