my top “5”

Filed under: about me,Entertainment,things I Looove — by heatherdc @ 11:46 pm

Someone, or something (wasting money on rentals?!), finally convinced me to sign up for Netflix. Thank the lord.

Really, its just another means by which to waste a lot of time Internet-ing. I didn’t realize this at first. I had my “queue” of the recommended 6 movies. Just six! Then I added an extra one….and nothing happened. Seven! Um, then I added 50 more and nothing happened. Except that I now have a queue of 57+ movies.

This is such a concept! I can switch around the order whenever I want, keep the movie as long as I want (but how selfish of me, there are 57 waiting for me!), and send myself whatever movie I want. Wow. Classics, new ones, stand-up comedy, concerts, TV shows, etc etc etc. I’m so in love.

There are movies that I see once and that is more than enough, and there are movies that I could watch over and over and over (and Over), quoting every line to you (but I Won’t, chill out) and expecting every song and dramatic event. Searching through this Never-Ending movie data base is way too much fun. I realized that I could never ever come up with just a “Top 5” of my favorites.

But! Here is my attempt (not In Order, because….I don’t have the patience for that kind of analyzing….)…

1. Burn After Reading (love love love. seen it about 6 times already)

2. You’ve Got Mail (I can’t ever explain why I love this movie. I Just Do.)

3. The Big Lebowski ( F-ing hilarious)

4. Mean Girls ( words cannot do justice )

5. Pirates of the Caribbean

6. Friends with Money (dysfunctional people.)

7. Father of the Bride (I and II)

8. Save the Last Dance

9. Bridget Jones (why is there not a third one yet?!!)

10. The Devil Wears Prada (I want those clothes!!)

11. Catch me if you Can

12. Pretty Woman

13. Spider Man (not a Huge comic-book character movie person, but….Love #1)

14. All the “Oceans” :11, 12 and 13 (hottttt)

…ooooh this could just keep going. I’m actually kind of proud that I stopped at 14. I definitely left out a chick-flick or two (….or 20). I can’t watch the “dramatic” movies over and over, so some of them didn’t make the cut. Sorryyyy.

Anyway! Feel free to add on to the list. Whats in your top ‘5’ ??! I’m very open to expanding my NF-Queue.

If nothing else, I get mail! Oh, and entertainment for my weekend nights in, $$-friendly. 😉 Yesss.



  1. Welcome to Netflix! It is great! I have way too many favorites to list my queue is in the 70s. When I’m bored at work I browse the recommendations of movies you will love and add them, fun stuff

  2. I totally want to get Netflix, but it sounds dangerous. I imagine too many hours spent in front of the tv. I heart You’ve Got Mail as well and Save the Last Dance. Also enjoy…Spanglish, Dirty Dancing, 10 Things I Hate About You, Step Mom, Walk the Line, just to name a few. Netflix would be great for seeing all those old movies I’ve been meaning to get my hands on though…hm.

  3. I really want to join Netflix, but I have stayed away this long because I know how easily I would get sucked into it.
