Movies Top Ten Movies (listing game)

EllaBlack posted on May 25, 2011 at 04:41AM
Alrighty, so I thought I'd start up a little game on here due to my recent habit of creating lists for no good reason lol.

so here's the basic idea:
somone starts off by creating a list of their personal top ten favorite movies concerning a subject, then submits a new subject for the next person to come up with a top ten list for. the subjects can be anything from musical scores to theatrical trailers, as long as it pertains in some way to movies.

sound easy enough? I'll just go ahead and throw out a subject then.

Most underrated movies

The day I saw 'Saw' in the theater (which coincidentally was the very day it came out), was a highlight of my life. My mind was fucked that day, and it was the best sex I've ever had. Previous boyfriends have never measured up, and future boyfriends have a lot to live up to!

Oh crap I totally didn't notice that the other Princess posted the same time I did. SORRY! I'm still leaving my best twists up!
