Yesterday I was asked what my favorite movie is. It was a little odd because I had thought about the just the day before. Strange. I didn't know what to say then, and I don't know what to say now. I thought I would do a top 10 kind of thing but I figured that if I did a top 5 then I wouldn't have to add a slightly sucky movie, like oceans 11, to the list. So here is my top 5, with the caveat of understanding that any of these 5 could be my 1. Yeah, I'm undermining my top 5 anything posts of the future.
On to the 5!
God Father: With out the God Father I don't think we would have movies like Casino or Good Fellas. And those are great movies
Raising Arizona: This is a great flick about a couple who kidnap a child because they can't have any. This movie sets the standard for actors you see through out the Cohen brothers movies. And they gave us movies like the Big Lebowskie, O'brother where art thou, and Fargo. But I don't really like Fargo.
Clerks: Its black and white get over it. The fact that this movie was even made is amazing.
Trainspotting: An awesome movie about heroin. Yeah, hard to get excited about it. Like the Cohen brothers you see a lot of the same actors in Snatch, and Lock stock and 2 smoking barrels.
Office Space: "Damn it feels good to be a gangsta' "
