Here is my list of favorite movies. Essentially, I have done the thinking and movie critiquing for you. If I like a movie then you should watch it and like it too.
Star Wars. This was easy. Watch all of them, but here is the order from best to worst:
IV - The Original
III - The Beginning of Darth Vader
V - Hoth Battles
VI - All is Good in the Universe
I - Pod Racing
II - Ugh, they found this actor to plan Anakin?
Once in college I skipped a day to go stand in line to buy tickets for the Star Wars Trilogy. It was a brutal line hours and hours long. But in the end it was worth it. As the first movie was started someone jumped out and yelled the ending lines about you're all clear kid and it's time to go home. It was a good laugh.
Iron Man. Awesome movies. Number one was good and the last minute of the film was great. I am Iron Man. I also really need that house on the Santa Monica cliffside. The sequel was one of the best sequels ever made. You need to see the first to really understand the second, but the second movie is great. The third, more recent movie is meh - over the top and getting ridiculous.
Oceans 11, 12, and 13. Fun casino heists with George Clooney, Brad Bitt, and Matt Damon. A throwback kind of movie similar to those made years ago with plot twists and turns and good acting without relying on cheap tech on a computer.
Independence Day. Will Smith saves the world, back when he was making good movies and not trying to buy his son a movie career. This should get the juices going - the speech near the end about how this is our independence day. Yeah! Go beat those aliens!
Tombstone. Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday. Yes, these events really did happen. A really excellent film. Not sure if it made a lot of money, but it should have. Dana Delaney is Wyatt's flame Josephine and she is smokin' hot.
The Tourist. Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp star in this movie that is a surprise addition to this list. Another 'heist' type of movie, but more subtle, it is eye candy from beginning to end. Not sure why, but I can watch this over and over.
