    I’ll accept two because of how hard this is to narrow down.

    for me:

    Goonies- Loved it as a kid and it still just holds up for me. I’ve watched it more than probably any movie ever and my youngest daughter loves it as much as I do.

    No Country For Old Men- I don’t think I’ve ever watched a movie that hits the notes of brilliant acting, engrossing story, visual splendor like this does. It also for me has a soothing aspect that I cannot pass up ever.


    What are your favorite films?

    Comedy, 40 YO Virgin or Dumb and Dumber. I still think the cardigan/pullover joke is one of my favorites in film.

    drama- probably Shawshank.

    I really don't know, don't feel strongly enough about one in particular but there are a lot of movies I'd consider to be in contention

    was actually thinking about this the other day and how it annoys me that I don't have an answer
