Top 5

I recently saw a movie that earned a spot on my top 5 movies of all time. It's old and you have all probably seen it, but I am obsessed with it. It was one of those movies that had such a twist, I couldn't stop thinking about it after it ended. The movie is Usual Suspects.
So, here are my top 5 movies (in no particular order):
1. Grease
2. Usual Suspects
3. When Harry Met Sally
4. Fiddler on the Roof
5. August Rush
What are your top 5?

Loved that movie!! I was exactly like you after I watched it. I just kept thinking of the ending and how I could never have thought that up on my own. My top five would include: Good Fellas, Grease, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Clueless, and Man on Fire. It's hard to narrow it down to five because there are so many good ones out there that I know I'm forgetting!

Hi, i saw your comment on Brittany's blog (Living in the Moment) and came over to say hello. She's a good real life friend of mine.

Anyway, i like the name of your blog. I've been married for 4 1/2 years now and am still learning to be a wife.

I'll have to check out some of those movies you listed. I haven't seen some of them. I always like having a movie recommended.

Have a great weekend!
