My top 10 movie picks (ok more like 13)

I never really post anything that isn't about my family or friends but this week Michael and I have been talking about our favorite movies and what makes a movie fall into a "top 10" list. First of all, my criteria for a movie to fall into MY top 10 is that it has to be a movie that I can watch over and over and get entertainment out of it every time. So with that in mind it rules out movies that are scary or depressing (because why would I want to relive those feelings more than once for the sake of a movie experience?). Generally speaking I prefer movies that make me laugh and feel good. I love witty dialog and I am a sucker for a good RomCom. I also enjoy a movie that makes me cry if it has a good story and a good ending. I also love seeing movies that are about books that I love. All that known... here are my top 10 in no particular order.
1. Only You
2. It's a Wonderful Life (Still makes me cry every year)
3. Return to Me
4. Just Like Heaven
5. Mr. & Mrs. Smith
6. The Princess Bride (Such a classic both in movie and book form)
7. Ocean's Eleven
8. Knight & Day
9. The Bourne Identity (the book is 1,000 times better)
10. Count of Monte Cristo (Great book)
11. A Walk to Remember (Another great book)
12. Fools Rush In
13. Iron Man

Ok...so after I started doing this I realized that my top 10 was more like 13 ....that is ok right? I would love to hear your comments or hear about any movie suggestions that you could give. Our time to watch movies is pretty limited with our crazy schedule but I would love to have suggestions on what to put in our netflix cue!! Thanks.

Great updates of the year! One of my favorite movies is The Blind Side with Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw. I think she did an amazing job. The story line is great- so inspiring and shows such compassion for others in this world. It makes me to try to be a better person, I love it. Take care. Traci
