A Personal Film Festival

Another blogger over at The Animation Commendation tagged me in a post to create my own personal film festival – basically, a list of my favorite films from each year that I’ve been alive.  I’ll try to pass along the fun by tagging some other bloggers as well!  You’ll see a lot of Disney movies on this list, but maybe a few others as well.  I did some honorable mentions too since I have such a love of Disney, but enjoy other films too!   I talk about Disney a lot on here (obviously), but this will also give you a glimpse into other things I enjoy.

1988:  Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Kill, Refurb, Marry: Live Performances

One of my favorite topics of all – live Disney musicals!  I love musicals.  I’m a theater person, so I enjoy performing in them and watching them, especially when they’re Disney related.  So I knew this was going to be a tough one to decide.

Kill:  The American Idol Experience

It’s fine, but I have no strong desire to go back and see it.  I liked Who Wants to be a Millionaire better, so I was sad to see that go.  And I feel like American Idol has reached its peak and is now on the decline, so I’m guessing it won’t be too long before it feels outdated and irrelevant.
