Favorite Movies

This web page is dedicated to some of my all-time favorite movies. The following does not represent even a fraction of a percentage of all of my favorites because that list would just be far too long. I can't even say for sure if the following movies are my very favorites but I do know they are among them. Until I started to think about this list, I didn't realize how hard it would be to produce. I consider myself a movie buff and I have seen thousands of movies during my lifetime. It is hard to remember all that I've seen and even harder to remember those of which I know I've seen were about. So please keep in mind that anything listed is stuff I can recall for now.


Avatar Avatar debuted in 2009 and was a hit. It was directed by James Cameron and starred Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington. It was a futuristic film with never before seen special effects which gave the atmosphere a vibrant yet alien aura. The film was about a voyage to another planet by humans in an effort to utilize the planet's precious natural resources. There were many underlying themes to the movie,which I liked, such as the detrements of colonialization, the responsibility of humans to protect our planet, and the relationship between technology and humanity.


E.T. was one of the biggest blockbuster hits of the 1980s. It debuted in 1983. It was one of the first movies I ever saw in a theater. The main character was an alien who whose spaceship ands in a northern California town and he is befriended and helped along from some young kids. It was the first big acting role for Drew Barrymore. It was directed by Steven Spielberg.ET
