DJ GlenMC's 12 Favorite Movies

The following post is my list of my 12 favorite movies.
This list has a variety of genres and varies widely through the years.
There are a number of movies that I thought about listing on here, but decided there were other movies I liked better. I could have also just included all the Pixar movies, but just decided on my one personal favorite. These movies are not my favorites because they are technically great or even worthy of major critical acclaim. These movies are just movies I like to watch. If they are on TV I'll stop and watch them. I have most of these on DVD. Some of them I have to go back and get the DVD, because all I have is the VHS version.
So without wasting any more of you time, My 12 favorite movies.

This has always been one of my favorite movies.

This movie makes me laugh, makes me cry, makes me wanna be married to Bonnie Hunt.

This is my favorite Adam Sandler movie. Always love watching this.

This has always been my favorite Pixar movie. Toy Story was great. I just happen to favor this one. Love the story. Love the Family.

Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart in the same movie. With Katherine Hepburn thrown into the mix. What more can you ask for?

This has got to be one of my all time favorite war movies. William Holden is great as the loner just trying to make the best of his situation in a prison camp.I just love when he gets away from the cops in the town and slowly turns and smiles into the camera.
This was the most fun I've had at the movie theater in a long time. Apart from Pixar movies, this was a great story, and just a fun time.

I liked this adaptation of Hamlet. Thought it was well done.I like the dilemma that Steve Carrell finds himself. In love with the woman who turns out to be his brother's girlfriend, then tries to do the right thing.
Another one of my favorite Cary Grant movies. He does comedy so well. One of my favorite westerns set in the outback. And I like Tom Selleck.

You're a couple of days early!
I also love The Philadelphia Story. It is definitely on my list of favourite movies, but I'm making my list of most inspirational movies and it has to wait till Tuesday's post for mention... except for here!

Gosh, I can't believe I've only seen half of those movies. I'm familiar with the other six but I've just never seen them. But I won't be surprised if you've only seen half of my picks as well.
Cassblanca of course is a classic--that one and IronMan are the only ones I actually own a copy of.

Let me know what you think of my list on Monday.

Yes, I was a couple of days early. LOL. Had some time to write. Decided to get my list done, then posted...Lee, I can't believe you haven't seen some of these. I love these movies. I will check your list out on Monday.
My list does have a tendency to change over time too. But these are my favs for now..
Be blessed. Be a blessing.

Superb list, I love every one of them!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Fun choices. The Incredibles is one of my favorite Pixar movies as well.

DEZMOND said...

Love seeing HAMLET in one of these lists, such an amazing adaptation with stunning actors, sets and costumes.

The Alliterative Allomorph said...

I ditto Dezmond! That version of Hamlet is amazing. I studied it at highschool and was obsessed with it for a LONG time. Great choices!

DJ GlenMC said...

Even with Robin Williams and Billy Crystal in it, I thought it was a great version of Hamlet.

Thanks everyone. I've been busy and I need to get around to checking out (then commenting) on everyone else's list. But it won't be tonight.

B blessed. B a blessing...
