My top ten movies...that's really difficult to choose. I know once I publish it, I'll think of another that I would choose instead. But, off the top of my head, which is still reeling from the greenish festivities of yesterday, here's my list.

1. Raider's of the Lost Ark
2. Willow
3. The Princess Bride
4. Wizard of Oz
5. The Lord of the Rings
6. Dead Poet's Society
7. A Christmas Story
8. Star Wars
9. 300
10. A Knight's Tale

Well there you have it. I know these films generally aren't the critics choices, but what can I say. Generally I like films that either make me laugh, take me to another world, or keep me on the edge of my seat with lots of action.

  2. Dead Poet's Society is most definitely on my list of movies I need to see. I loved 300, The Wizard of Oz, and The Princess Bride I hear is so good.
