Top Ten Movie Blogfest

                                           endless possibilities!        

Today is the Top Ten Movie bloghop, hosted by Alex J Cavanaugh, in which we get to list our top ten movies of all time. I'm not really a movie lover. To be honest, I can't remember the last time I visited the movie theatre to watch something on the big screen. Maybe 3 or 4 years ago? Not even sure about that. And I don't worry too much about TV…

I signed up because I have watched at least 10 movies in my entire lifetime that made some sort of impression on me. The last 6 of my top ten pick are in no specific order. The top 4 have been fixed in my memory, in that order, for quite a while now…

    We have some in common;) I loved The Man in The Iron Mask too, and Shawshank Redemption is timeless! Great picks!

    I am a closet GREASE fan!  I must have watched it two dozen times one summer! 🙂

  4. Adriana Dascalu on March 19, 2013 at 9:47 am

    Love your list! seen them all but no 6.

  5. Rhonda@Laugh-Quotes on March 19, 2013 at 1:04 pm

    We can watch movies together .  Great list.  Have you seen  White Nights?  It's probably close to 30 years old by now, but a great dance movie.

    Shawshank was in my list… such an amazing movie. Love your list, and so glad you owned liking Grease. Dirty Dancing also made my list, and I wished I would have thought of Gladiator. Such a great movie.

    Enjoyed your list!

  7. Natasha Hanova on March 19, 2013 at 2:02 pm

    I've watched all of these. Really enjoyed Coming to America, too.

  8. Al Diaz on March 19, 2013 at 2:16 pm

    Oooh Flashdance, great songs! and Coming to America, I laughed so much with that one. Very good choices.

      @Alex ~ Seems like the movies with great soundtracks are the most memorable for me…

      @Marta ~ Shawshank seems to be a popular choice…

      @DL ~ Grease is timeless… I've even taught my choir kids some of the songs! 🙂

      @Adriana ~ It's a great comedy!

      @Rhonda ~ Isn't White Knights the movie about tap-dancing? Or am I mixing it up with something else…

      @Tia Bach ~ Thanks for the visit! 🙂

      @Natasha ~ Eddie Murphy is hilarious! Loved his character in this movie!

      @Al ~ Flashdance has some real feel-good music that will never die…

    Everybody loves Shawshank! It was an awesome film. Loved Titanic and Dead Poets Society, too. 


  10. Carol Kilgore on March 19, 2013 at 8:59 pm

    Great list! I've seen almost all of these. I love 'Nobody puts Baby in a corner." from Dirty Dancing.

  11. mary aalgaard on March 19, 2013 at 9:44 pm

    I like how the songs are the most memorable part. Flashdance was my favorite movie when I was younger. I was so inspired by it!

  12. Medeia Sharif on March 19, 2013 at 11:51 pm

    I love seeing what everyone came up with for this blogfest.

    I haven't seen most of these, but I love Dirty Dancing.

  13. LD Masterson on March 20, 2013 at 12:26 am

    For someone who doesn't watch a lot of movies, you came up with ten good ones.

  14. Mel Kinnel (@TizMellyMel) on March 20, 2013 at 2:16 am

    Some awesome picks! #1, #2, #3, #6, #7, and #8 are some of my faves!

  15. Kimberly Gabriel on March 20, 2013 at 10:51 am

    Love Grease. I'm so upset I missed Dead Poet's Society – definitely a "top ten" movie.

  16. Meradeth on March 20, 2013 at 1:27 pm

    Awesome picks! I've seen Grease on a few lists lately and am hankering to check it out again–it's been too long. And what's not to utterly love about Shawshank? Amazing movie!

  17. Michelle Wallace on March 20, 2013 at 2:29 pm

    @Nutschell ~ Shawshank is very, very popular! Lots of bloggers included it on their lists.

    @Carol ~ That's a classic line… and such a feel-good moment!

    @Mary ~ I always seem to remember the music from the movies…

    @Medeia ~ Dirty Dancing is such a memorable movie!

    @LD ~ I think the music/dance movies have stayed in my mind because I'm so drawn to the soundtrack

    @Mel ~ We seem drawn to similar movies!

    @Kimberly ~ Dead Poet's Society is awesome! Robin Williams at his best!

    @Meradeth ~ Yes, Shawshank is cream of the crop! A real winner!

  18. Mary on March 20, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    Those are all such wonderful movies. Many of them take me back… I wore out 3 VHS copies of Dirty Dancing. I'm glad they came up with dvds.

  19. E.J. Wesley on March 20, 2013 at 9:55 pm

    Dead Poets & Shawshank are for sure in my top 10 as well. Dead Poets might be number 1. "Oh Captain, my Captain!" 🙂

  20. Sherry Ellis on March 21, 2013 at 5:16 pm

    Great list!  I think Titanic would be number 1 or number 2 on my list!

  21. Michelle Wallace on March 21, 2013 at 9:14 pm

    @MPax ~ Dirty Dancing has such poignant moments… an unforgettable movie.

    @E.J. ~ Who can forget those words? Classic moments… 🙂

    @Sherry ~ I can remember seeing Titanic on the big screen when it was first released.(Remember, I'm not a movie person…) I was really taken in by the visuals… really something else…

    Just dropping in from the blog hop. You've got a great list. I have much love for Gladiator! Also, I forgot about "Man in the Iron Mask". It's been ages but I can remember it being a fabulous film. :3
