Just to reiterate.
A) I'm doing mostly just movies this round. Next round I'll be more diligent with things like TV shows and Video Games (I'm upset I missed Animaniaces back in September...ah, ten more years, if I last that long).
B) I'm doing mostly movies I've seen or know enough about through popcuktural osmosis. If there's a movie you love that I've left out, shout it out in the comments! However...
C) Wait until the end of the month if you can, since sometimes I do special single anniversary posts, as I will do in just a few minutes.
With that out of the way...
Ten Years Old This Month
Elf - When Will Ferrel left SNL to pursue a movie career, and then started to make this, I didn't think it would amount to much. Boy, was I wrong. This was an instant holiday classic. Did I develop a crush on Zooey Deschanel in this movie? MAYBE, DON'T JUDGE ME!
Love Actually - Best romantic comedy ever, or best romantic comedy ever? Don't answer that if you categorically hate romcoms...but Bill Nighy steals this movie, yes or yes?
The Cat in the Hat - Yes, the Mike Myers one. Is it a great movie? Absolutely not. Is it a good movie? Eh...is it a bad movie? Definitely not. While some of the more adult humor falls a little flat, I do believe it keeps the spirit of Suess, and I find myself enjoying it time and again - for the most part.
Twenty Years Old This Month
Mrs. Doubtfire - This is one of those movies where, because of my own traumatic experience with parental divorce, I have a really hard time watching even today because it brings up so many conflicting memories. That being said, it is a classic and one of Robin Williams' tour-de-force performances.
Fifty Years Old This Month
It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World - Been a long time since I've seen this movie, so I forget a lot of the specifics. Still, this is the quintessential "All-Star Cast Goes On A Madcap Treasure Hunt" movie, and there aren't nearly enough of them in my opinion.
