#fav7films

I’m not on social media anymore, but I hear things. Right now on Twitter there’s a hashtag game – #fav7films, one that everyone seems to be participating in – where you list your favorite movies. You’re supposed to name just 7 but, to quote Ralph Wiggum on The Simpsons, that’s unpossible! Since this is my site and I can do more than 140 characters, here’s my 20.

It’s A Wonderful Life (1946)
Miracle on 34th Street (1947)
L.A. Confidential (1997)
Three Days of the Condor (1975)
Back to the Future (1985)
North By Northwest (1959)
Rio Bravo (1959)
