Top 5 movies from 198610:24 AM
A while back Fernando from Committed to Celluloid posted his favorite actors that were born on the same year as him.
I thought this was very interesting and looked for actors who share my birthday. Unfortunately, I didn't find many actors I like that were born in 1986. Though some very popular names appeared such as Twilight's Robert Pattison, Gossip Girls' Leighton Meister and Girl's Lena Duhnam.
I then turned to movies that were made on the year I was born and apparently that was a great year for movies. Here are my top 5 favorites:
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
One of my favorite movies of all times and I suspect it will always be. Matthew Broderick is Ferris Bueller, I can't see him as anyone else.
Pretty in Pink
I miss the days Molly Ringwald was just an actress and not a writer/singer. Seeing a book with her name on it in Barnes and Nobles just doesn't seem right. Plus, this movie has a young James Spader - enough said.
Big Trouble in Little China
I'm almost certain I'd hate this movie if I first saw it today. But after seeing it countless times while growing up I ended up liking all its excesses.
I recently rediscovered both Crocodile Dundee movies and I got to say, they're not bad at all. (I didn't dare watching the third movie - we all have our limits.)
Another movie I'd probably hate if I watched it for the first time as an adult (why? the picture says it all) but even though it's embarrassing to admit I still know the Three Amigos' song by heart. That's what Chevy Chase can do to you.
