The Movie Dirty Dozen Continued

Because there were just too many good movies!

Sponsored by Alex J Cavanaugh The Movie Dirty Dozen's official post date was Monday, and I posted my twelve films. Today, I am continuing my list as I left off so many great films.

This list is in no order and just a mixture of fun, watchable flicks!

My favorite Pixar movie! Sweet story and the whole film is a work of art!

The Dark Crystal
Jim Henson's epic fantasy - soon to have a sequel!

Big Trouble in Little China
My favorte John Carpenter movie! Silly, cheesy, and with Kurt Russell. What more can I say?

The Matrix
One of the top sci-fi films out there - just amazing!

A throwback to B monster movies and one heck of a fun ride!

Raiders of the Lost Ark
This is the movie upon which all adventure flicks should be based - it's perfect!

Star Trek IV
My favorte Trek film - so many funny lines and it's got whales!

Better Off Dead
Of all the teen flicks out there, nothing tops John Cusack in Better Off Dead. "Two Dollars!!"

Doc Hollywood
A really sweet film. I wish our Southern town looked like that!

When Harry Met Sally
A perfect ten on Rotten Tomatoes. This movie came out when Craig and I were first dating and we had to laugh - we were a Harry and Sally!

Golden Child
A quirky fantasy saved by Eddie Murphy's wit! "There's a whole thing of Tic Tacs in my pocket. Take as many as you like!"

The Road Warrior
Mel Gibson and the best car chase ever. Enough said!

Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Hey, my Friday post isn't a tribute to Monty Python for nothing! Love this movie!!

I love Better Off Dead. Great teen movie. The misuse of the word "tentacles" by Monique Junot was hilarious. Ratatouille and Monty Python are excellent too.

Stephen Tremp

Stephen - "n-t!" LOL It's such a great movie.

This is making me want to create my own list. Will have to give it some thought!

More good stuff. Tremors is a good one that I haven't seen listed yet. Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Matrix are also two favorites of mine.

Tossing It Out

Some really good movies on this list. Thanks for sharing!

Jessica L. Brooks (coffeelvnmom) said...

I've only seen a couple of those. Thinking I should add the rest to my Netflix!

Shannon Messenger said...

Ooo Ooo--When Harry Met Sally-- <3! And now I will be hearing Billy Crystal sing Surrey with a Fringe on Top in my head for the rest of the day. :)

Mason Canyon said...

Another great list of movies. I love Big Trouble in Little China and Doc Hollywood.

The Old Silly said...

Great Dirty Dozen list, Diane!

Riv Re said...

Yay! Monty Python!

Helen Ginger said...

I haven't seen all the movies on your list, but some of them, yes. That Star Trek 4 was probably my favorite (until the latest one with the new generation). Loved it when Spock did the shoulder clench thing on the kid with the radio.

Stephanie Thornton said...

Man, I missed this blogfest, but had fun camping instead.

Monty Python is AWESOME! Have you seen the Broadway version? It might actually be even more funny!

Jemi Fraser said...

Yay for Star Trek 4 & The Matrix. I still haven't seen Ratatouille - gotta correct that. I love the Pixar films :)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Shannon, there's worse things than that!

Helen, Spock in SanFran was just too funny. Although Kirk's "Double dumb-ass!" always gets me, too.

Stephanie, we almost went last year!

Jemi!!! That's the best one!

Zoe C. Courtman said...

Tremors!! lol. I *love* that movie. You really want to hate it when it's on, think GOD this is SUCH a bad movie, but you're too busy laughing the whole time. DEFinitely one of my favorites. Awesome list!

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

Gee, I've only seen three of these. Guess I need to watch some movies. :)

Carolyn Howard-Johnson said...

Alex! I've missed your comments on my Sharing with Writers blog but am really glad to see you here. Those interested in your terrific list may be interested in the fact that I tweet mini review on both my Twitter accounts (doesn't everyone love movies?). They are S(t)weet #MovieReviews at www.twitter.com/FrugalBookPromo and www.twitter.com/FrugalRetailing.

Way to go. And I think the RAT movie was my fave Pixar flick, too! (-:

There's a couple hear I have not seen, like Better Off Dead. I'm a big John Cusack fan and now have this on my list of must sees. Thanks!

A said...

Ah, Monty Python and the Holy Grail -- there are no words, really :-D

Talli Roland said...

Monty Python rocks. And When Harry Met Sally - one of the best rom-coms ever!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Zoe, Tremors is awesome!

Lynn, this is THE best John Cusack film! See it soon.

And yes, Monty Phython rocks!

Jane Kennedy Sutton said...

I've actually seen most of these movies! Monty Python and the Holy Grail makes me laugh just thinking about it.

DL Hammons said...

After reading your previous post and this one, I have to say we have very similar taste in movies (I mean...how many other lists would you find TREMORS in?).
