Another meme. Can you believe it??

Lisa at Put it on the List tagged me for this meme. I'm not sure I can abide by all four rules because I'm not much of a movie watcher. Seriously, I don't know if I've watched ten movies since I got married. But I'll try.

The rules of the “game” are simple:
1. list your top ten favorite films (in no particular order).
2. if you’re tagged, you’ve got to post and tag 3-5 other people.
3. give a tag back (some link love) to the one who tagged you in your post
4. give a hat tip (HT) to Dan

And like Lisa, I have no clue who Dan is, but I'm doing my best to follow the rules. Like I tell my two- and three-year-olds, "Obedience guarantees your survival in daycamp." Not that this is daycamp, but the idea applies to all of life.

And besides, I don't want to sit in the time-out chair.

So here are my favorite ten movies:

1. While You Were Sleeping - I love Sandra Bullock, and this is her best.

2. Two Weeks' Notice - Again, Sandra Bullock, a close-runner-up.

3. You've Got Mail - are you seeing a pattern here? I do like me some rom-com.

4. Air Force One - now aren't you surprised? I love Harrison Ford in this movie, though I've never watched a single one of the Indiana Jones movies. Call me weird.

5. ET - yes, I'm old enough to have seen it in the theater when it first came out.

6. Enchanted (edited - it's actually Ever After. Leah corrected me this morning) - is this the one with Drew Barrymore? My kids made me watch this and I did enjoy it.

7. The Bourne movies - can I lump them all in one? I'm not much for violence, and I quite often don't "get" things, but my family helps me out. So I liked these.

8. Ocean's Twelve - I liked it better the second time, after I "got" all the little things.

9. Finding Nemo - Love Dory - I can totally relate.

10. Anne of Green Gables - the marathon. My kids and I used to take a whole day off from school about once a year and watch the whole story, six movies, back-to-back. We still quote her.

I'd love to hear from Caaaaaarie!, Jeana, and Melissa. Let me know if you play!

Be thankful !

well, this one I'll have to think about. Movies are one of those things I have a really hard time narrowing down since I can't remember what I've seen and what it was about. I may have really, really liked it, but I don't recall it when I do lists like this.

I too love Sandy... and I have no idea how I've avoided a Sandy sighting so long! She has a home in Austin. I've been to the restaurant she owns several times. But no Sandy love for me. =( Too bad.

I almost put the Ocean's movies on my list, and I forgot about ET. Great stuff here!
