In Praise of the Scene

            Okay, nothing poetic or intense today. Unbelievable, right? No, just a quick post about some of my favorite movies. Sunday afternoons are perfect for this, and most of these sites have trailers for your enjoyment just in case you haven’t already seen them all. Of course, I have a lot more favorites than this, and they are in no particular order, but I’ll start with 21 because I like that number. You’ll notice a common theme, but there’s still a bit of variety:
1.     Kiss of the Dragon – Jet Li
2.     Man on Fire – Denzel Washington
3.     Silence of the Lambs – Anthony Hopkins
4.     The Book of Eli – Denzel Washington
5.     Office Space – Ron Livingston/Jennifer Anniston
6.     How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days – Kate Hudson/Matthew McConaughey
7.     Independence Day – Will Smith
8.     Ryan’s Daughter – Sarah Miles/Robert Mitchum
9.     Unleashed – Jet Li
10.      The One – Jet Li
11.      Fearless – Jet Li
12.      Romeo Must Die – Jet Li/Aaliyah
13.      Meet Joe Black – Brad Pitt/Anthony Hopkins
14.      Hearts in Atlantis – Anthony Hopkins
15.      Instinct – Anthony Hopkins/Cuba Gooding, Jr.
16.      Bodyguard – Kevin Costner/Whitney Houston
17.      The Edge – Anthony Hopkins/Alec Baldwin
18.      Legends of the Fall – Brad Pitt/Anthony Hopkins
19.      Troy – Brad Pitt
20.      Far and Away – Nicole Kidman/Tom Cruise
21.      ShadowBoxer – Cuba Gooding, Jr.

Now, tell me some of yours…

As I stated, this list is far from conclusive, but I can't leave "The Lion King" out of this first post - brings my list to 22, but that's okay, too :-)
