I am a bit of a musical and rom com snob. Something I'm not so proud of!
It's true what you said, smirnoff, I've weeded through a lot of stuff I don't like in those genres to get a handle of what I really do. And when the movie gets it right, I'm over the moon.
You bring up an excellent point and also a great gift buying tip. I'll remember to use it! I'm sitting here thinking about my filmspotting friends and your personalities in conjunction to films. All of your top 10's are shoe ins, but what about each other's top 10's? If I were to take my top ten, who would I choose to say, "This film is so him!" ? And how does it reflect his/her personality?
I'll give it a go, without looking to see if a film is on someone's favorite list, even though I know some of them are, so it's not a pure exercise.
(As I'm looking at these, it's almost easier to say which films are "not so him!")
1. Jane Eyre
This is so smirnoff! (Well crafted
2. Pride & Prejudice
This is so Bondo! (Gender and societal perspectives)
3. Sense and Sensibility
This is so OAD! (Painting word art)
4. It's a Wonderful Life.
This is so pixote! (Warmth. Nostalgic in the best sense of the term)
5. Singin' in the Rain
This is so 1SO! (Classic love for Hollywood)
6. You've Got Mail
This is so ses! (ses, help me out! You love this, yes?
Spending time in the happy space)
7. West Side Story
This is so Junior! (ASuperplus commitment to excellence)
8. Return to Me
This is so Martin Teller! (It's all about the personal stories)
9. Galaxy Quest
This is so oldkid! (Laughter and heart are the best medicines)
10. Cast Away
This is so colonel_mexico! (Perseverance)
Let me know if I got any of these wrong.
