He's done it again, that Mr Ritchie over at Phil's Treehouse has lured me into a meme, this time on fifteen films - as Phil writes...
The rules: Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen films you’ve seen that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen films you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes.
Not in order of preference.
1 The Matrix
2 Star Trek VI
4 Saving Private Ryan
5 It's A Wonderful Life
6 The Wizard of Oz
7 Ferris Bueller's Day Off
8 This Is Spinal Tap
10 The Empire Strikes Back
12 Sliding Doors
13 Sleuth (the original, with Michael Caine & Larry Olivier)
14 Roman Polanski's MacBeth
Yep, not a lot of high fallutin' stuff in there but in less than five minutes these are the films that most stand out for me mentally. I could give a reason why for each one, but rather than waffle on, if anyone wants to know 'why?' then post a comment and I will respond. I didn't give any links for the movies I recommend you go check out IMDB if you don't recognise the names :-)
Following the tradition of the good Dr John, late and lamented, I don't tend to tag people - if you do this meme please let me know so I can come and explore your choices :-)
There's no stopping me when I get going on this blogging, Melli has previously commented on my tendency to flood my blog in one go having said nowt for ages.
