Fifteen films that will always stick with me

I was tagged by a friend on Facebook...  so here we go!

The Rules: Don't take too long to think about it. 15 films that you've seen that will always stick with you. Take no more than 15 minutes to decide. Actually this is a bit difficult for me since I'm really not much of a film buff. No particular order except for the first two...

  1. The Princess Bride
  2. The Lord of the Rings (Fellowship, Two Towers, and Return of the King) trilogy (I know it's three films but I like to think of it as one 18-hour extravaganza when I watch the extended DVD versions one after another!)
  3. K-19
  4. Jonathan Livingston Seagull
  5. Sound of Music
  6. Conan the Barbarian
  7. The Bourne Identity, Bourne Supremacy, and Bourne Ultimatum (all excellent action films, again best if watched back-to-back-to-back)
  8. Tank Girl
  9. Finding Nemo
  10. Wall-E
  11. Fantasia
  12. Star Wars
  13. Roman Holiday
  14. Alien
  15. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Of the fifteen mentioned above, there is only one that I would NEVER see again - and that would be K-19.  It is easily the most heartbreaking movie I have ever seen.  Alien is another one that I would avoid seeing again, because it is so scary.  All the rest are favorites that I would - and will - see whenever they are on the TV or even on my iPhone (which is where the Bourne movies are at the moment).

Which movies always stick with you?

Don't remember watching the African Queen swaying across the Atlantic on the S.S. Statendam?

Oh there is no question that I remember that experience, with sickening clarity! ;)

That particular one didn't make the cut because the movie itself wasn't as compelling as the watching of it!

Amy,My name is Beth Renaldi, and I work for Loyola Press, an educational publisher in Chicago, IL. We purchased one of your images from Dreamstime, the Jesus mosaic taken from your trip to Alessandrai, Italy, to use in one of our textbooks. We would love more information about this mosaic, if you know more about it. Where was it taken--what cemetary? Do you know how old it is or who made it? Any further information you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Please contact me at renaldi@loyolapress.com. Thank you.
