Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Favorite Movies


This week, The Broke and the Bookish is talking about some of our OTHER favorites. I had planned on doing TV shows, but I watch all the same shows as everyone else and it wouldn’t be as entertaining as divulging my awful taste in movies.

So all through high school I had one of those little televisions that had the built in VCR. I also lived right across the street from the best Target in the world, and since DVDs were clearly taking over, VHS tapes were super low-priced. They were $5 or less, but the selection wasn’t exactly current.

  1. The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is my all-time, numero uno, favoritest movie ever. Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds star in this musical as the owner of a whorehouse and the sheriff, respectively. They’re sneaking around together and singing and just being amazing. I love Dolly Parton SO MUCH and this movie has it all.
  2. Stick It is a movie I love but I feel like it should be a secret. It’s technicalllllly a sports movie which means it’s okay, but it’s mostly all the gymnastics that gets me.
  3. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang – RDJ and Val Kilmer having a sass off.
  4. Slap Shot/Goon: Obviously I love Slap Shot THE MOST, but Goon is such a good hockey movie too and Liev Schrieber (and Jay Baruchel, if I’m being honest).
  6. Almost Famous (see above)
  7. 200 Cigarettes is everything. Literally everyone is in it and it’s fab
  8. Mallrats is the movie that made me fall in love with Jason Lee and I can’t even explain why I still love it. I can’t really watch it ever because I have the whole thing memorized, but it’s something I can always put on to go to sleep.
  9. Clueless is a movie I appreciate and love more every time I watch it.
  10. Reality Bites/Pump Up the Volume/Heathers: I definitely understand the Christian Slater in the 80’s thing. WINONA FOREVER

  1. I’m not the only one doing movies today! Everyone is doing TV. EVERYONE. lol!! Oh, I watched Stick It *just because* of the gymnastics! I heard about it back when Make It Or Break It was still airing! I haven’t seen most of the other movies you mentioned, though man, I used to love Clueless!

  2. Stick It was SO close to being on my list. It was actually in the first draft of my post and I changed it for something – I can’t remember what. I love that movie, and I have NO SHAME. It’s SO funny!!
