Top 10 Favorite Movies of All Time

I like to mix it up once in a while so today, I'm going to got through my top 10 favorite movies of all time. Now I am 10 times as critical of movies than I am of books, so when I say these movies are my favorite I'm saying they are the best of the best and I can't actually rank them because I love them all so much. I even had honorable mentions because I couldn't even fathom not having some of these movies on the list.

1. Deadpool

Let's start off with a basic. Deadpool is crude and badass, I couldn't think of a better movie to suit my personality. I love action/superhero movies because I have the attention span of a walnut, so this movie kept my attention the whole time.

2. Thor: Ragnarok

I watched this movie and couldn't believe that it actually rivaled my love for Deadpool. I loved everything about it and even thought of doing a movie review for it back when I saw it. I never actually did, but I certainly contemplated it. The best part of the movie by far is Stan Lee's cameo. Golden.

3. The Departed

This was art. I really don't watch a lot of gangster movies, but this one had me hook line and sinker. I mean A+ acting from A-list actors and so much drama and action. There was so much double-crossing going on that you were just waiting for the whole thing to come to a head and being so excited to see it happen.

4. The Dark Knight

An old favorite. I can't say I'm happy with how DC movies are happening right now, they just aren't good. However, I haven't seen a superhero movie be as much of a cinematic masterpiece as Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight. What made the movie for me was Heath Ledger's amazing performance as the Joker. He's 1000x the Joker that Jared Leto will ever be. 

5. It

I saw this in theaters with my friend and let me tell you, the two of us were curled up in our chairs screaming. I watch a lot of horror films and a lot of them are bad. What set this one apart from all of those other bad horror films was the dynamic between characters. I feel like a lot of the time in horror films no one ever really gets attached because you know they're going to die eventually. It, however, build up a friendship between all of the characters to the point where you don't want any of them to be apart, you want these kids to beat the monster and come out okay on the other side.

6. Thelma and Louise

Best empowerment movie out there. This movie itself is a feminist icon. I loved Thelma's character development throughout this movie, it was worth every hardship they went through to get there. It's a must watch.

7. Kill Bill Volumes 1 and 2

I'm counting these as one because they are two parts to the same story. I'm a sucker for Tarantino, I decided to only put one Tarantino movie on this list though. I chose Kill Bill because much like Thelma and Louise it's full of female empowerment and badassery. 

8. Zodiac

If you know anything about me as a person, you know I have a major obsession with unsolved mysteries, my personal favorite being the Zodiac Killer. This movie had me hooked from the beginning, it had me so on edge and had my mind in overdrive trying to put all the pieces together. I love it, even more, knowing that almost all of what happened in this movie as fact. Just saying, I am also a firm believer that Arthur Lee Allen was the Zodiac.

9. The Silence of the Lambs

I live and die for this movie. The Silence of the Lambs was the first Thriller/Horror type movie that I genuinely loved. Hannibal Lector is enough to keep anyone engaged. If you haven't seen this movie, you definitely should as it's a classic.

10. 10 Things I Hate About You

This movie never fails to get me in a better mood. Heath Ledger is on this list twice because I love him. 

Honorable mentions:

The Incredibles

  1. You've got quite a mix there, I love it! I'm a fan of a few of those, too. Some of my faves would be Atonement, Romeo + Juliet, Dark City, and Much Ado ABout Nothing, for example.
