Favorite Movies List-Top 219

I am an avowed Movie Freak. The only thing that I like better than a good movie is a good book. As long as I can remember I have loved movies. When I was a kid growing up in Atlanta the best way to escape the heat was in an air conditioned movie theater. I remember summer days when it was 95 degrees and 95% humidity and you just dripped. Walking into the cool darkness anticipating a new movie was a thrill. I remember walking out after an afternoon movie and the sun just blasting heat and light and your eyes screaming for mercy. I wish I had done 2 things in the course of my life…

1) Kept a list of all the books I have read

2) Kept a list of every movie I have seen

There is no way I can capture every book, way to many to even think about, but I have captured every movie I have seen since I joined Netflix in 1997. I was on the original pre pay Value Pack plan before they went to a subscritpion service. I have also been using a cool little app called Netflix Freak that syncs with the Netflix site and allows you to download your viewing history and store it locally(Great App if your on a Mac). It rates right behind ecto as one of my favorite programs. So, for your viewing pleasure I present my Top rated 4 and 5 star movies from my Netflix history. I tend to lean towards Action and Adventure, Drama, Comedy, and a smattering of movies rated by my kids. There are 640 movies in my history but I am only sharing the 219 that I rated 4 or more stars. If you know of anything that I need to watch please share it in the comments.

  1. This list is long. I have to mention, however, that I once rented Angels in America, and was so bored and depressed after the first 45 minutes that if there had been a nearby bridge, I would’ve jumped. 6 Feet Under,all seasons up to now that are rentable, has been one of the best series I’ve seen. The Sopranos is also a family favorite. (no kids, of course.) I’m told the 24 Series is also a winner. My pals agree, that if you wait until an entire season is available and watch each episode back to back, it is REALLY good weekend entertainment.

  2. I must mention something else. I recently revisited the LONESOME DOVE mini series DVD. That movie is definitely one that I will cherish, love and recommend during this lifetime. Another winner? Horatio Hornblower is an incredible HBO A&E miniseries that teaches the viewer the value of honor and bravery…in the pure, unflawed, traditional sense. Every little boy could benefit from the hero’s behaviors and choices. When confused as to what to do? I ask myself, “What would Horatio Hornblower do?” and the path to goodness becomes crystal clear.
