My Top 10 Movies

I recently saw Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and I liked it so much I’ve decided to place it into my Top 10 Movies of All-Time (in no particular order). Since I wasn’t exactly sure what those were, I’ve decided to carve it into the internet.

  • The Big Lebowski
  • Coraline
  • Punch Drunk Love
  • Shawn of the Dead
  • Adaptation
  • Scott Pilgrim vs The World
  • Cold Mountain
  • There Will Be Blood
  • High Noon
  • Sneakers

Honorable mentions: Clerks, Serenity, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Saving Grace

Notice the number of pretty-recent movies. I’m not biased, there just isn’t a ton of older movies that I really love. Plus, I just happen to think there has been some amazing movies recently. Maybe I’m too close to all these movies, but I can’t see a clear thread that runs through all of them. Something about them just clicks with me.
