Fifteen Films I Won’t Forget

Fellow New Collegian and uber-blogger Byron Smith recently posted a “meme” listing fifteen films he wouldn’t forget. “The rules: Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen films you’ve seen that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen films you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes.”

I never do things like this…in fact, I didn’t even know the term “meme,” which my Macbook dictionary defines as “an element of a culture or system of behavior that may be considered to be passed from one individual to another by nongenetic means, esp. imitation.”  Hm…guess that works.  But as this blog is certainly open to the criticism of sticking to “serious” topics way too much of the time, to the point that things worthwhile in themselves might get a bit tiresome, I reckon I’d better lighten things up.  

So here’s my fifteen films (in no particular order)–not my favourites necessarily (though a number certainly are), but all memorable for one reason or another:

Chariots of Fire
The Dark Knight
The Mission
Shutter Island
The Passion of the Christ
Twelve Angry Men
The Lord of the Rings trilogy
Monte Python and the Holy Grail
The Godfather
Brideshead Revisited (does a TV miniseries count?  If not, The Sixth Sense)
