The AFI Top 100 Movies meme

The AFI Top 100 Movies meme

Julie D. has tagged me with the AFI Top 100 movies meme that has the recipient peruse the list and make judgments about the movies therein. I have a confession to make: As much as I enjoy movies, including old movies, I have only seen one of the top five movies, three of the top 10, six of the top 20, 31 of the whole 100. I am a pop culture movie slacker.

Thus I don’t know how interesting my answers to the included questions will be, based as they are on a subset of 30 of the movie titles, but here goes:

  1. Your favorite five movies that are on the list.
    1. Star Wars
    2. Raiders of the Lost Ark
    3. Schindler’s List
    4. Patton
    5. Jaws
  2. Five movies on the list you didn’t like at all. (This is tough because I’m an easy touch with movies, and I don’t often see movies I don’t like at all. These will be ones I don’t particularly care if I see again.)
    1. Apocalypse Now
    2. Amadeus
    3. Pulp Fiction
    4. The Silence of the Lambs
    5. Tootsie
  3. Five movies on the list you haven’t seen but want to. (Sheesh, I could list 25 movies.)
    1. Citizen Kane
    2. The Godfather
    3. The Godfather II
    4. Lawrence of Arabia
    5. Fargo
  4. Five movies on the list you haven’t seen and have no interest in seeing. (This is easier)
    1. The Graduate
    2. All About Eve
    3. Annie Hall
    4. Midnight Cowboy
    5. Doctor Zhivago
  5. Your favorite five movies that aren’t on the list. (I’m just going from my own criteria, not the AFI’s)
    1. Braveheart
    2. Saving Private Ryan
    3. The Passion of the Christ
    4. The Lord of the Rings (I consider this one movie)
    5. The Adventures of Robin Hood (Errol Flynn) (purely out of nostalgia because my dad and I enjoyed this one so much together)
