Just as well you didn't tag me- I wouldn't know where to stick half my faves. Seriously, which category would "Aliens" be under?

And interesting to note that your fave Animations are all recent films which you saw as an Adult... No Bambi?!

first of all, i didnt tag you because I knew that there was no chance that you would do this since I know you hate meme's.

second I will always remain a kid at heart. Plus as an adult, we have much better understandings of animated movies. Pixar animators are our age and they throw in many poular culture references to our own childhoods.

Never really liked Bambi. (Not a venison fan) ;)

PP: BTW, Aliens goes under Science Fiction, Horror and/or Action

Many movies can be classified in different genre's so classify as u see fit.

Stacey: I knew you'd be up for the challenge!

Wow that is a lot of Movies JC! But how can you tell the difference between an aciton movie and a thriller? Aren't they pretty much the same thing?

FYI...Signs is not a horror movie. I encourage you to watch actual horror movies before putting a list together. Just a thought. My dog (trashcan odorous jr) put together an outstanding top ten list for horror movies.
