My Favorite Movies

It's time once again for the 52-week blogging challenge. And today I'm supposed to write about "My favorite movies."

This is easy.

Probably my favorite movie of all time is Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.

My second favorite movie is Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.

Despite a few bits of clunky writing (usually when the writers strayed from Tolkien), these moves are damn near perfect. And the extended editions are even better. I can watch them over and over (and often do, along with Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers).

Other favorite movies (in no particular order): Aliens, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, The Seven Year Itch, and Ghostbusters (the original).

The Seven Year Itch I enjoy because the protagonist's brain works just like mine. Plus it's a very funny movie. Another older movie I enjoy is Some Like it Hot. It's hilarious.

Aliens is the perfect military scifi movie with a few horror tropes added (even though I don't like horror, I can take it in small doses).

The Empire Strikes Back is, in my opinion the best of the Star Wars movies. The battle on Hoth is amazing, especially for pre-CGI special effects. It is a very intense movie.

And Ghostbusters is an amazing comedy. Why anyone thought to remake it, I don't know.

What's your favorite movie? Comment below.
