Five Faves Friday! Movies

It is so hard to narrow down the movies to five...

My five favorite movies:

1. High Fidelity

2. Pretty in Pink (or Sixteen Candles?)(I had to go with Duckie)

3. Dead Man (well, really anything with Johnny Depp)(Chocolat, Pirates of the Carribean, the 1st one?)

4. Amelie

5. Groundhog Day

Gross Point Blank likely should have been there too... and Toys. I Linklove those Cusacks... I watched The Sure Thing a few weeks ago, wow, we have all grown up a bit, haven't we? I also really liked Inglorious Basterds and Little Miss Sunshine, Green Card, Edward Scissorhands and What about Bob.... oh, and also Unbreakable, 6th Sense and Fight Club. I can't really narrow this down to five.... I should have categorized this list!

Eclectic, aren't I?

What are your favourite movies? Why?
(And don't forget my giveaway!)

I was going to say Out of Africa so nice to see another fan.
Lawrence of Arabia (ist part) Appollo 13. Margaret's Museum haunts me, The Money pit and Groundhog day are very close.
But of course you know all this.

I loved Amelie. She is in another movie I want to see as well. Not sure how racey it is for my 12 year old, so I will have to see it again. Great picks Martha! I love your choices on Pinterest and had no idea you were in Toronto. Love your work!
