Cal's Top Movies

For me, deciding on a Top Movies is not something that can be easily done. However, this is a basic list that gives a general idea of what movies I like, and is as close as I can do to giving an accurate display of some of my most liked movies. The order is all over the place because I am mostly adding titles as I think of them. I know that most the films are from the last 25 years, but I hope to find some more older movies I like soon!

So enjoy, my Top Movies, or as close as can possibly be!

Director: Adam Elliot
“ A movie that's consistently hilarious while keeping a firm grip on your heart. The fact that this was passed over for a Best Animated Feature nomination (or heck, it deserved a nomination in Best Picture) is just plain not right. ” - Zombie-Kermit

“ I'll admit that I'm a sucker for a good romantic comedy... and I love that this movie does not try to deny what it is... a schmaltzy group of stories that melt your heart. Plus, Alan Rickman, Liam Neeson and Bill Nighy in one movie? That's a recipe for a winner in itself. ” - Zombie-Kermit

Director: Robert Zemeckis

“ I realize there's a lot of Spielberg on this list. Yes, I'm a huge fan, and Saving Private Ryan is just another of his brilliant movies. Though it never quite reaches the same heights in does in its opening scenes, it's still a beautifully shot and deeply involving. ” - Zombie-Kermit

Unlike many Dreamworks movies and the like, the humour never feels too forced or too adult. It's a colourful and mouthwatering movie to watch. Just don't make the same mistake I did and try and watch it on a diet! ” - Zombie-Kermit
