I could go on and on forever, I'm a total movie buff. But I'm cutting myself off at fifteen because I couldn't stop at ten.

The Mystery of Rampo: Japanese, hard to find, but definitely worth picking up if you see it. Bizarre and gorgeous and super, super pretentious.

Breakfast at Tiffany's: The best romantic comedy ever made. (starring Audrey Hepburn)

Charade: The best Hitchcock film Hitchcock never made. (starring Audrey Hepburn)

North by Northwest: The best Hitchcock film Hitchcock did make (starring Cary Grant...notice something?)

To Kill A Mockingbird: Probably the greatest adaptation ever made, and also my dad would never forgive me if I didn't put it on here. I don't understand how that courtroom listened to a piece of white trash and not Gregory Peck. :( I mean, what are they going to do, find a HOTTER lawyer?

It's a Wonderful Life: The movie that got me through being a depressed teenager.

The Night of the Hunter: Lillian Gish with a shotgun. Evil psycho-killer preachers. Brother Left Hand, Brother Right Hand. Droool.

The Graduate: Hello, soundtrack! Shots of old lady boobies! ELAIIIINE! WOOHOO!

Orson Welles' Othello: The movie that inspired the shower scene in Psycho, and the best interpretation of Othello's character ever-- and a Desdemona that is actually a three-dimensional character. Unfortunately, Iago isn't as good as Branagh's portrayal, but it's a gorgeous movie.

The Hunchback of Notra Dame (Disney): Yes, the gargoyles suck, yes, the watering-down of the story sucks, but this movie has the greatest Disney Villain ever and a gorgeous gorgeous soundtrack. Plus, the protrayal of the gypsies is phenomenal.

The Princess Bride: Hello. My name is Best Swordfight Ever.

Labyrinth: David Bowie! Jennifer Connelly! Where to drool first?!

Sleeping Beauty (Disney): My favorite childhood movie. Beautiful art. The other bst villain ever, and the best comic relief team in Disney (Flora, Fauna, Meriweather). And I think the first Disney movie to successfully employ irony in the scene where Maleficent tells Philip that true love conquers all.

Spaceballs: The movie I always watched when I was home sick as a kid. Great, great parody, especially for someone who likes sci-fi movies besides just Star Wars and can pick up on everything.

My Man Godfrey: This movie never ceases to crack me up. Carlo pretending to be a monkey is just the most preposterous thing ever.
