Cinema Saturday:What are your top 5?

I'm completely ripping this blog post idea from Megan over at Running Toward The Prize. This morning she posted her top 5 favorite movies, and, I have to say, the girl has great taste in movies!

This looked like fun and I might just spend the day watching my 5. (As a side note, it was very hard to narrow the list to 5. I could have easily listed 10.) So, in no particular order...

Nathan Fillion, Summer Glau, Adam Baldwin, Nathan Fillion, need I say more? I'm a sci-fi fan and Nathan Fillion's space cowboy rocks my socks.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail
"Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?" "It's just a flesh wound." Best movie ever for spewing random quotes on twitter. Plus, it's freaking hilarious.

The Princess Bride
"As you wish." The world's greatest love story. And Cary Elwes is easy on the eyes.  This movie also now ranks as one of my kids' favorites as well.  My job as a parent is done.

Really any movie by director Kevin Smith could have made my list, but Mallrats is my go-to movie if I need a laugh. All I need to watch is the "Fly, fat @$$, fly" scene and all is right in my world.

Say Anything
The movie in which I fell in love with John Cusack.  (Now, just about an Cusack movie would make my list.)  If you want to win my heart, just point out some glass on the sidewalk for me to walk around and then stand outside my window with an old-school boom box and play me some Peter Gabriel.

So, there you have it.  5 of my all-time favorite movies.

Honorable mentions: 
Ferris Beuller's Day Off - "Life moves pretty fast.  If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."  Sage advice, my friends.
Dazed and Confused - Young Ben Affleck and Matthew McConaughey.  Rocking soundtrack. I rest my case.
Grosse Pointe Blank - One of my favorite Cusack movies.
The Fast and the Furious - Vin Diesel (yum) and Paul Walker (yum) and really fast, hot cars (yeah!).
Pirates of the Caribbean - Any of them, it really doesn't matter.  Johnny Depp is the most perfect pirate. "Why is the rum gone?"

So, what are your 5 favorite movies?  Leave a comment - or better yet, write your own post and link it in the comments!
