Favorite 100 Movies

Cover ImageCover ImageCover ImageCover ImageCover Image

Okay, Jason and I have spent the last 10 years watching all of the movies on  AFI Top 100 Films list (the original version).  It was fun and made us see movies that we never would have watched otherwise.  We ranked them ourselves and it was great discussion starter.  For the most part we felt the same about the movies we loved or hated, it was the ones in the middle we disagreed on the most.  Anyway, so I decided now that we were done and I had my own ranked list of these highly esteemed movies thatI could come up with my own more pedestrian favorite movie list.

The movies are on here for different reasons.  Some are great movies, some are sentimental picks, and some I’ve seen more times than I can count.  You may also note I love romantic comedies 🙂 I’ll probably post more about movies in the future – maybe once a week.

The actresses that appeared most – Audrey Hepburn (5). Katherine Hepburn (4), Diane Keaton (3), Sandra Bullock (3), Molly Ringwald (3)

The actors – Cary Grant (6), Humphrey Bogart (5), Johnny Depp (4)

So here’s my list (now a page you can find on the top).  Have I forgotten about a good one?  Let me know.  I’m sure this list will change since I will remember movies and I will see more.  And, yes, I realize I am a compulsive list maker 🙂

    I love that your husband and you made a point of watching all of the AFI Top 100 films. That sounds like a great goal.

    I am a sucker for romantic comedies too when it comes to movies.

    Well, we were pretty lax about the list. It did take us 10 years to complete 🙂

    List maker, list maker make me a list lol 😉 hee hee

    That’s awesome, that you and your husband were able to watch all these movies and rate them!! There are so many of my favourites on this list too!

    I LOVE watching movies, and so do my husband and my son. I love a lot of old movies as well as new ones: Calamity Jane (Doris Day), Blazing Saddles (Gene Wilder), See No Evil, Hear No Evil (Gene Wilder), Gone with The Wind, Young Frankenstein (Gene Wilder), Tammy and the Bachelor (Debbie Reynolds) and SOOOOO many more!

    Awesome post, thanks so much for sharing! 🙂

    (((hugs)))

    I’m sensing a Gene Wilder crush 🙂

    Your list is super. Kinda awesome to know you’ve seen all 100 of what someone thinks are the best, isn’t it? In looking at your list I’d have to agree with you on the romantic comedies. I think I’ve seen almost all of your list. If I made a list I’d have to add a few Westens and a few Actions (the Bourne movies, some of the Bond movies, and some legal thrillers).

    This is a great project. I’m looking forward to more discussions about movies.

    I am not a big western fan, but Unforgiven and 3:10 to Yuma almost made the list 🙂 And I do love the Bourne films. I’m pretty sure my list will change because it is difficult to remember all of the movies I’ve loved, but I just tired of judging all the other lists and had to do one for myself 😉
    Glad you read my list (I’m pretty sure my husband only made it halfway through!).

    I would never have the patience or brain power to come up with a list. Great job.
    Unforgiven = awesome 3:10 to Yuma (new version) was ok.
    The Bourne films are excellent as well.

    I sometimes think the AFI lists turn out to be what is expected, Casablanca, Citizen Kane, GWTW (and I love GWTW!)

    For the most part the AFI list is what you would expect, but there is a reason why the movies are universally considered great. We found some real gems 🙂
