So, okay, it's not exactly Tuesday. It was when I started this list, though!

After I made this list and read it over it struck me that practically all of them are fantasy or science fiction. I guess that explains what I write.

1. All three of The Lord of the Rings movies – the best fantasy movies EVER

2. Star Wars, the very first, the original and still the best, with The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi close behind. I like to pretend Episodes 1-3 never happened.

3. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. It’s close between that one and Order of the Phoenix.

4. The Princess Bride “My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” Utterly unforgettable.

5. Pirates of the Caribbean – The first one is still the best.

6. High Noon – This is how you do suspense.

7. Monty Python and the Holy Grail (The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch – I almost fell off the chair laughing so hard.)

8. Aliens. Another close one between this one and the first, Alien, but the first one felt a bit too claustrophobic for me.

9. Terminator – Didn’t have so much of the cool CGI effects of the later movies, but a better story more than compensates.

10. Serenity – Joss Whedon and Nathan Fillion. Need I say more?

11. The Day the Earth Stood Still – It’s vintage 1950s with a heart-rending ending, but still a terrific movie.

12. Casablanca – It’s a classic.


Your turn now. What are your favorite movies?

It certainly will! I'll be eager to see it.

I'm not sure I've seen the one with The Fonz. But I do like Billy Crystal's Scrooged, too.

Thanks, Joylene! Obviously I'm kind of chronically behind. Oh, I did forget The Christmas Carol. I have to watch at least one version every Christmas. Which is your favorite version? I have to confess I have a real fondness for the Muppets' Christmas Carol
