Everyone has an upper eschalon of movies. This is somewhat embarassing, but here is mine:
Signs - gripping drama with a powerful theological message
Notting Hill - if I've got to watch a chick flick, I want it to be this one
Dead Poets Society - favorite movie from my teenage years
The Passion of the Christ - wow
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy - amazing story and story-telling
Monty Python's The Search for the Holy Grail - a cult classic
Spiderman & Spiderman 2 - best comic book movies
And now ...
Napoleon Dynamite - the funniest movie I have ever seen
It is weird. Many people will hate it. But I have never laughed harder during a movie in my life. Aaron, rent this one tonight and then call me.
