Flicksmix’s Favorites

With rare exceptions, I don’t have one favorite for any broad category.  I like lots of things for different reasons, and in the end they’re all incomparable so I can’t choose a “best.”  But here are some things I continually go back to and get excited about:

Movies

All The King’s Men (2006), The Emperor’s New Groove (2000), Hot Fuzz (2007), Thelma and Louise (1991).

Note the absence of Citizen Kane from this list.  As a film grad, this is nothing short of sacrilege.  I’m okay with that.

TV Programs

Blackadder (all except season 1), Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Human Target (Season 1; anxiously awaiting season 2 with trepidation), The IT Crowd (seasons 1-3), Quantum Leap, What Not To Wear

Actors

Christian Bale, Jeff Goldblum, Jackie Earle Haley, Anthony Hopkins, Nathan Lane, Patrick Stewart, Bruce Willis

Actresses

ya know, I actually don’t have any favorites here.

Characters

Nicholas Angel (Hot Fuzz), Mame Dennis (Auntie Mame), Dory (Finding Nemo), Bridget Jones (Bridget Jones’s Diary), Freddy Krueger (new and classic A Nightmare on Elm Street), Dr. Hannibal Lecter (The Silence of the Lambs, etc.), Ulysses Everett McGill (O Brother, Where Art Thou), Rorschach (Watchmen)
