Leaving me a trail of candy.

Dr. Write tagged me to do the meme--a pressing subject for these dark times, although things are brighter than they used to be--"My Favorite Movies A-Z." Because I am a good citizen, I have prepared my list. There are a few overlaps with hers, but no one said there couldn't be overlaps.

Ahem, and ta-da:

Almost Famous
Bull Durham
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Departed, The
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
French Kiss
Gosford
Park

Half-Nelson
Igby Goes Down
Junebug
Kung Fu Hustle
Lost in Translation
Mysterious Skin
No Country for Old Men
Opposite of Sex, The
Pride & Prejudice (the Keira Knightley one, sue me)
Queen, The
Rushmore
Sexy Beast
Thelma and Louise
Unbearable Lightness of Being
Volver
Walk on Water
X-Men
Year of Living Dangerously, The (also Y Tu Mama Tambien. Also Young Frankenstein.)
Zodiac

Edified? I should think so. I hope my daughters, all three, will accept the challenge, and my son, and my niece Diane, and my nephew Sam.

  2. I love this meme. Not that I could begin to play along, but because it will provide many recommended movies for Jack and me to watch.

    Thank you. For the movie suggestions and for not inviting me to play along. Seriously. Thank you.
