Lately I've found myself wondering what other money-bloggers regard as their favorite films. I'm not sure why I'm so curious about this, but I really am. So, at the risk of public ridicule from other bloggers and Film Snobs alike, I'll throw out my five favorite films — not necessarily money-related. They'd go like this, in alphabetical order only:
You either loved this film or hated it. Guess which camp I fall into?
Just too grandiose for me to leave out. Especially since I'm a literature dork and love all that symbolism and stuff.
Return of the Jedi (or just throw all the Star Wars movies in here)
A huge chunk of my kid-hood revolved around Star Wars. Heck, I even ducked out of work to go see the last episode. What can I say? I still consider Darth Vader to be the coolest villain of all time ... and 24+ years later, that final confrontation between Vader, Luke, and the Emperor still gives me chills. Like that Mencius guy said: "The great man is he that does not lose his child's-heart."
The Shawshank Redemption
You know it's a powerful ending when the actors don't say a word, and yet you're still in tears.
Exciting. Hysterical. Riveting. Larger than life. And that's just the first ten minutes. Nudged out Pulp Fiction and Usual Suspects only because it made me laugh so hard, so often.
If you're a money blogger, and feel like divulging your five favorite movies, blog an entry and let me know about it via email:
public -at- mdmproofing.com
... and I'll add a link to your post right here! And readers — feel free to leave comments with your favorite films ... or tell me why my favorites are the equivalent of cinematic trash.
(Aside: I wonder what Suze Orman, Dave Ramsey, and David Bach would answer to this little query?)
