My 10 Favorite Movies

Here are my 10 favorite movies, in no particular order:
  1. You've Got Mail  I just love Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. The big, bad Fox Bookstore is out to shut down the small indie store, who puts up a battle to stay open.
  2. While You Were Sleeping My favorite Sandra Bullock movie. How can you not love it? She saves a guy from getting killed and suddenly finds herself with a new family who thinks she's the fiance.
  3. My Big Fat Greek Wedding A Greek girl falls in love with a non-Greek boy, and of course, chaos rules.
  4. Star Trek: Wrath of Khan  Ricardo Montalban reprises his Khan character from the tv episode "Space Seed" and is out for revenge against Kirk. Of the original Star Trek movies, I think this is the best one.
  5. Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone We get to watch Harry as he discovers who he really is and plunges into the world of magic.
  6. Star Trek: First Contact The best of the Next Generation movies. Who doesn't love a battle with the Borg queen?
  7. The Nightmare Before Christmas  Watching Jack discover Christmas is so cool!
  8. A Christmas Carol (version starring Patrick Stewart) This is just one of absolute favorite Christmas stories, and I just love the version with Patrick Stewart.
  9. The Princess Diaries A cute movie about a girl who finds out she's really a princess.
  10. The Postman  It's a post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie about a drifter who finds the skeletal remains of a postman and puts on the uniform to keep warm, but ends up bringing hope to the survivors. I love the scene with Tom Petty at Bridge City.
