Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Movies guaranteed to distract me from books

top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Movie Freebie — top ten all time favorite movies, top ten foreign films, top ten rom-coms, top ten 90’s movies, top ten action flicks, top ten tear-jerkers, top ten movies your favorite actor/actress is in, top ten movies with PoC leads, etc.)

* * * * *

I decided to go with what basically amounts to my all time favorite movies.  I adore the movies on this list so much that no matter what I’m in the middle of, including my beloved reading, I will immediately stop whatever I’m doing to watch them if someone else in my house is watching them.  As you’ll notice, my favorites are heavy on classics by Steven Spielberg and George Lucas.  I think Spielberg and Lucas are two of the most brilliant filmmakers of all time, and their movies really shaped my childhood and young adult years.

The Star Wars films, the original trilogy, are probably my all time favorite movies. I hardcore shipped Han and Leia for years, loved the Han/Chewy bromance, and really wanted my very own R2-D2 droid.  That said, just like my tastes in reading, my tastes in films are also very eclectic.  I love comedies, dramas, musicals, fantasies, animated films, sports films, and even some science fiction. You’ll also notice that no horror films appear on my list. I’m a big chicken and truly hate to be scared, haha. 🙂

So, anywho, here’s this week’s Top Ten Tuesday!
