Fifteen Movies

The rules: List fifteen of your most influential MOVIES without thinking too much about them.

1.) Lethal Weapon ( the first time I laid eyes on Mel...)
2.) Wizard of Oz ( isn't it everyones? )


3.) Psycho (the first horror movie I ever watched. I was in my sister's apartment and I was like 9 or 10 years old. Scared the fricken crap outta me)

4.) A Nightmare on Elm Street (the first horror movie that I ever saw after Psycho that started the obsession with horror movies)
5.) A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 - Dream Warriors (the movie Taryn is named after)
6.) Edward Sissorhands (the movie Jason & I went to on our first date... if you could call it a date)
7.) The Wraith (I'm not sure why I chose this movie. I just love it)
8.) E.T. (again... who wasn't? But I did see it in the theater with my stepmom, one of my favorite childhood memories!)
9.) Clan of the Cave Bear (got me hook on the Earth Children's series)
10.) Girl, Interrupted (I fell in love with Angelina Jolie in this movie)
11.) Grease (again.. if you aren't, you aren't human)
12.) Bambi (it's Bambi! I love Bambi.)

13.) Who's That Girl (yeah, that Madonna movie. She had a cougar. I named my cat, Murray, after it)
14.) Alive (thats the movie Jason, Missy & I watched at our house while I was in labor with Taryn)
15.) Oliver & Company (it was the first Disney movie we bought after Taryn was born. She called it "the kitty movie". Ironically years later she insisted on a kitten we acquired to be named Oliver. She didn't really understand why she wanted him named that so bad.... )

That's a terrific list. I think that was Madonna's best acting. I'm surprised she didn't do better. In some ways I though her acting was better than her singing...

I thought so too... I wish she would have done more films. I liked her 80s music, but after Vogue I lost interest in her.
