Don’t Read This & My Top Movies

I’m working on a new post, well sort of, okay, I should be working on a new post, and in order to get my ass moving on that post I’m writing this nonsense post so that I have to look at it every day, which will hopefully motivate me to post something of substance/worth.  I did order one of those fantastic graphics tablets I keep hearing about, but it was sold out from my favorite online store,, so I had to order from the Apple Store, which I was not very happy about.  I haven’t purchased anything from apple since I bought a nano back in 2005.  Every time I purchase something from Apple I feel like I am joining some cult.  I am also reminded of the South Park episode, Humancentipad, which does not serve me well.  If you have seen that episode, than not only are you a different person because of it, for better or worse, but you know exactly what I am talking about.

For some reason I felt like this would be a good place for a paragraph break.  Even though is a stream of consciousness post, it still needs paragraphs, right?  Damnit, now I am always self-conscious about my grammar!  It’s okay, I actually really enjoy that blog, keep up the good work.  But back to what I was talking about, which was nothing, so on to a topic worth discussing.  The truth is, I have had the flu for the past week, among other things, like applying to graduate school, has kept me from making a post.

Here is now a list of 30 my favorite movies, in no particular order after #2:

1. Braveheart
2. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy


3. Surf’s Up
4. Garden State
5. Fool’s Gold
6, 7, 8. Star Wars (3,4,6)
9, 10, 11. Lord of the Rings Trilogy
12. Jurassic Park
13, 14. The Matrix I and II
15. Independence Day
16. The King’s Speech
17, 18. Muppets From Space, Christmas Carol
19. Hot Rod
20. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
21. The Quick and the Dead
22. Exit Through the Gift Shop
23. Rules of Attraction
24. Greedy
25. The Beach
26. Full Metal Jacket
27. Pirates of the Caribbean II
28. Robin Hood: Men in Tights
29. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
30. The Princess Bride

Please have a magnificent day, and adopt a child or pet if you are in a position to do either.  If you are on the fence about one or the other, just go with your gut.

  1. Ohh no I’ve read it.
    I already have a pet and he his very high-maintenance, and I am in no position to adopt a child :S

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
    and Matrix best ones on your list =)

    Good day, sir!

  2. That South Park episode still haunts me…

    And I adore your list – you have some of my all-time favorites on here including the Muppet Christmas Carol, Star Wars, LOTR, Eternal Sunshine… ok, I love everything on your list!

  3. scotch scotch scotch I love scotch DOWN INTO MY BELLY.

  4. I read the titles of #17 and 18 as one movie, which would be THE GREATEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME.

  5. Creature with the Atom Brain

    Garden State is an interesting choice 🙂

  6. Idea for your next post: Favorite line from each of the above. I must say I’d be sadly disappointed if it were not “it’s merely a flesh wound,” from MP & the HG. Cheers !

  7. Didn’t really pay attention to your movie. Okay, I did. But number 2 is the only movie I like of the bunch. Is stream of consciousness your primary writing style?

  8. I was going to make fun of you for some of those then I remembered that The Mighty Ducks is near the top of my list. I’m also the only person in history who really liked and still likes The Last Action Hero.

  9. Oh, yes, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It honestly affects me to this day. I look at certain people and think to myself, would I erase them if I could? If the answer is no, then I put more effort into our relationship. If it’s yes, I wait a few weeks to return the call. Even your posts about killing time until you can write a “real” post are great. Great I tell you.

Come on, tell me how you really feel.
