My Top 5 posts are supposed to be a cop-out when I feel uncreative and want to take the easy way out - the grilled cheese of blogging, if you will - but this post was a pain in my ass. I've written and rewritten my top 5 bands about 800 times so I thought movies would be easier. Wrongo bongo.
Here are my Top 5 Movies* as of this exact second - if you ask in an hour I am sure they will change
1. American Beauty
2. Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind
3. A Clockwork Orange
4. High Fidelity
5. Shawshank Redemption
Wow those are some depressing assed movies. Yes ass can be used as that part of speech. No I can't name that part of speech.
Some others that just missed the list - Wristcutters (A Love Story), Requiem for a Dream, Vanilla Sky, Cool Hand Luke, Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Fight Club, Big Lebowski, Animal House, Evil Dead, Lord of the Rings, Life of David Gale, Old School, Blues Brothers, Pool Hall Junkies, Rounders - really this list could go on forever.
Here is a tasty treat from High Fidelity so you don't think I'm a Debbie Downer:
*List subject to change whenever I feel like it and can actually remember all the movies that I love.
