Saw this on Facebook and thought I'd share here. :)

1) The Princess Bride
2) Stardust
3) A Dog's Purpose
4) The Truman Show
5) Kill Bill Vol 1 & 2


Make of the list what you will :whistle:
Fear is a choice you embrace
Your only truth
Tribal poetry
Witchcraft filling your void
Lust for fantasy
Male necrocracy
Every child worthy of a better tale

Withnail and I
Melancholia
The Invitation
Get Out

If it was 6 films, Let The Right One In would be there.
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

Are people just listing their favorite movies? How does "The Thing" describe you? (note, I didn't ask about Alien :mrgreen: )

The movies I listed describe me in the sense that their themes/messages allign with my own or have had a strong influence on my life.
Example: The Mummy exemplifies both my love for history and fantasy.
ST First Contact does the same for my love for Sci-fi.

I cannot do that, this is a public forum.
