Top Ten Meme....

So, Lori was tagged by Sonja with this meme, and now she has tagged me. I haven't even gotten around to filling out all this kind of stuff in my profile ... and I just can't do this in a normal manner, you know ;^) so I'm going to change the deal for my part, but this is the real story of how it goes:

1. Your top ten movies, (in no particular order).

2. If tagged, write a post and tag 3-5 other people.

3. Tag back, (shout out link), to the one who tagged you.

4. Give a hat tip (HT) to Dan.

When asked for my five favorite books, I had to list my top three in my five favorite genre ... so that seemed appropriate for this exercise. Let's see ... here's the top several in my eight favorite genre -- I seem to be especially fond of many different movies! ;^)

Drama

  1. The Lord of the Rings Series (I consider them one movie together)
  2. Last of the Mohicans (first pre-date with hubby)/Last of the Dogmen/Dances With Wolves
  3. The Last Samurai (interesting cultural follow on to Clavell's "Shogun" -- I read the book and have the mini-series from 1980)

Musicals

  1. The Slipper and the Rose (had the best time watching it in Thai!)
  2. My Fair Lady (...come on, Dover.... I also saw it in the theater with Richard Chamberlain as Higgins)
  3. The Sound of Music (went to sleep to the soundtrack every night in 4th grade)

Comedy

  1. The Princess Bride (...anybody want a peanut?)
  2. Young Frankenstein
  3. The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai

Sports/Animals

  1. The Black Stallion movies
  2. Hidalgo/Seabiscuit
  3. Chariots of Fire

Action

  1. The Indiana Jones Series (except #2) -- haven't seen the newest one yet
  2. The "Jack Ryan" Series (with Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and Alec Baldwin)
  3. The Four Feathers (with Heath Ledger in 2002, and the 1977 version, too.)

Romance

  1. Sense and Sensibility (I first saw this with my mother and 4 sisters...)
  2. Shakespeare In Love (...I don't know; it's a mystery)
  3. The Thorn Birds (read the book and have the mini-series...the "midquel" didn't quite cut it, for me...)

Animated

  1. Shrek (...where to start? Ohh, pick me!!! Donkey is such a hoot!)
  2. Ice Age (...the LAST melon)
  3. Cars (...love 'Mater and "cow tipping" :^) )
Inspiration
  1. The Narnia Series (I will love them all because I love the books....)
  2. Iron Will (love dog sled stores -- read Jack London's books: White Fang, Call of the Wild)
  3. The Last Samurai (wonderful example of what obedience to a liege lord should look like...)

...and I will tag...

I must say you do do things in a different way, but that's why I tagged you. A bit suprised by some of your faves...I loved Shakespere in Love too.

...most surprising is, probably, how few "new" movies I've seen....

I should have included a "Children's" section, because that mostly what I see...especially a VeggieTales one!

LOL!

Hi, Peggy....

How fun to have gotten your comments and your tag! I've never done that before....I'll respond after tomorrow. I'm keeping my Memorial Day post on top until then.

I must confess, I have completely forgotten your married name...(in fact, I can't for the life of me remember your last name as a PCC/HIU student! (I'm horrible with names.) Of course I remember you as Becky's sister, brilliant rose gardener, horribly allergic to green peppers, avid reader, and great conversationalist.

My email address is don.sewell@fcc-connection.com

Please write a note and bring me up to speed on yourself!!!

God bless!
Don

Don...just sent you an e-mail. No worries on remembering names -- my rule is I remember my name and you remember yours. We just don't get embarrassed about it. ;^)

"Peggy's Patch" was a good time and those roses brought a lot of joy to everyone on campus. I have a new "patch" in my yard -- my sibs each got me 2 roses for my Golden Birthday. I just don't seem to have a much time to spend on them these days ... hehehe!

I'll look forward to your top ten on Tuesday, dude! We newbie bloggers have to stick together....

Thanks for stopping by!
