We all have those favorites that we just HAVE to pull out of the entertainment cupboard every once in a while. Like junkies, we just need that “fix”. Here is a list of my top favorites that never fail to entertain. (In no particular order)

1. Firefly / Serenity (best watched , over and over again, with large groups of geeky friends)


      Northwoods UU Firefly Fundraiser


2. Harry Potter both books and movies (It’s a long way off yet, but I look forward to reading these books to my grandchildren!)

Borders Deathly Hollows Midnight Release Party


3. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (smoking a cigar while viewing is a MUST)



4. Sherlock (This  fantastic BBC series is new to my list ’cause smart is definitely the new sexy!)



5. Monty Python’s Holy Grail ( John Cleese running across a field for five minutes, need I say more?)



6.  A Christmas Carol (Scrooge) (the old black and white with Allistair Sim, NOT the colorized it detracts from the creepiness)



7. Highlander (and as far as I am concerned, there IS only one!)



8. Indiana Jones (except Temple of Doom and the last stinky one….see I can’t even remember the name…)



9. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the kickass TV version not the Whedonless movie slop)

Two Halloween Baddass Buffys 

10. The Ten Commandments (Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise just don’t have anything  on Charlton Heston and Yul Brenner in my book! I once sat next to Yul Brenners loin cloth at Planet Hollywood in Disney World, that was cool! Yes, yes, I know all about Heston’s politics!)




This is by no means a comprehensive list. I just needed to stop for time’s sake. I’ll probably come back every once in a while and add more to the list in the comments section.

So, what’s on your list of brain crack?

  1. My first addition to this list is Canadian program “Corner Gas”. Starring creator, comedian Brent Butt (yes that IS his real name!) This show is clean, funny, and so Canadian! Growing up in a rural area I recognize so many of these characters. It doesn’t matter how often I watch these episodes I laugh and laugh!

    Here’s the opening scene from the first episode. This show hit the nail on the head from the get go!

  2. I thought of another favorite to add to my list. I NEVER get tired of watching “Back to the Future”. I can watch those movies over, and over and now sharing them with my kids too. We all love them. Christopher Lloyd’s hair never fails to entertain! Here’s the original theatrical trailer:
