Guys. Twitter Movie Night is only 3 days away.
I've been pimping out my very official and scientific poll for several days and the votes are finally in.
Actually, you technically have a few more hours to cast your ballot, but we'll assume the current winner remains. Well, I'll assume that. Because I'm in charge of this game and I can make up whatever rules I want. And tomorrow is the first day of my vacation and I don't really feel like spending my new-found freedom counting movie ballots. It takes a long time to count ballots. If you're an election volunteer. In a country where actual humans even count the votes. For me it wouldn't take any time whatsoever, but I've still decided to close the polls now. This is a dictatorship, people. Except that you were allowed to vote for your movie choice. I guess that makes it a democratic dictatorship.
What the hell is the point right now? Oh yeah!
It was very close. Jay and Silent Bob (my secret preference, just for the fun of it) ran a close second. But I heart Johnny Depp so I'm happy.
So get your hands on a copy of Rango and set it up for 7:00pm Eastern on Sunday night! #movienight
In the meantime, here are my top ten favourite movies. Just because.
City Of Angels. I loved this movie when I was a kid. I've seen 633 times. And one of my favourite songs of all time is Iris - from the soundtrack.
Dirty Dancing. I was in high school before I saw this movie for the first time, but I've seen it at least 261 times since then. It has love, and intrigue, and honour. All the best plot points of a truly remarkable film.
Chicago. I have a soft spot for it. And I have the soundtrack on my mp3 player. (Not ashamed.)
42 Wallaby Way!
Baby Mama. Tina Fey and Amy Poeler are my heroes.
Pirates of the Caribbean. I saw this 3 times in the theatre (which is rare for me) and countless times since then. Johnny Depp pretty much gives me an orgasm.
Home Alone. I watched this movie every. single. day. for MONTHS when I was seven. I could quote you the entire thing from beginning to end if you asked me to.
Christmas Vacation. Clark Griswold is my best friend and his cousin Eddie is runner up. Hubby and I quote it constantly.
Mary Poppins. I love myself a good singing chimney sweep, and a spoonful of sugar truly is the solution to everything. Or peanut butter. Whichever. Also, I love the idea of jumping into a chalk drawing on the sidewalk.
And my Number 1 favourite film?
The Notebook. Don't judge me. I love Ryan Gosling (who kinda looks like Hubby, actually) and Rachel McAdams. And they're both Canadian. And this is the sweetest love story of all time. Except I always turn it off a few minutes before the end.
