Today is Alex's Top 10 Movie Countdown. Check out the linky list here to see everyone's top movies.
This is my list (my pictures weren't working so I took them off) :
I know it's really corny and probably doesn't fit in a top ten list, but I just love this movie. It makes me laugh every time.
9. Shakespeare in Love-
This is a great romantic movie and you can't go wrong with Gwyneth Paltrow and Joseph Fiennes. I love how Shakespeare's work is used as the basis for this story.
This one makes me cry every time, but it is such an important story.
7. Hotel Rwanda-
I guess I'm drawn to movies like this that show what humanity can fall to, if we let the differences between us matter more than our similarities.
Though it is extremely long, I loved every minute of this movie. It inspired me to read much more about Gandhi and the struggles for Indian Independence.
5. Seven Years in Tibet-
Another great film about a great man. I'm fascinated by the Dalai Lama and his life.
4. Avengers- The combination of great actors, action and humor made this one of my favorites!
3. Raiders of the Lost Ark- I still love this movie even after seeing it countless times. The combination of action and humor is irresistible for me... and of course so is Harrison Ford.
2. Jurassic Park- I had always loved dinosaurs as a kid and this movie blew me away.
1. Star Wars- This movie came out when I was 5 and I don't think any other movie has affected me the way it did. It opened up whole new worlds and possibilities for me.
What are your favorites?

After tonight I will have completed my third week of P90X, and I do feel great! I still can't do more than 1 pull up at a time, but I'm really improving on a lot of the other exercises!
How is your fitness going? Are any of these movies on your favorites list?
