Here’s my top 10 list (not in any particular order)

-Inception

-The Shawshank Redemption

-Toy Story 1, 2, & 3

-Up

-A Beautiful Mind

-The Departed

-Wedding Crashers

-The Blind Side

-Elf

-Green Mile

I’ve seen some pretty bad movies, but I can’t stand any kind of Bruce Lee/Jackie Chan action type movie. Or any movie with “The Rock” in it. ugh. I’m also not really into romantic comedies. I guess I have to be in the mood for them.
