Hello Everyone! This is Greasyback, Host of WOCR’s The Greasy Review, and this week, I decided to create a personal top 5 film list. \
As I continue to find myself bored without school or work, I have watched and re-watched tons of movies. After taking some time, I was able to compile a top 5 list. However, in truth I could make a top 200 list, but that seemed a little extreme for a blog post. I'm sharing this list in hopes of creating a connection with my audience. I feel that the more my audience knows me, the more people I can get to join my audience.
So, here is my list:
1. Ready Player One
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi
Plot: In the year 2045, the planet is on the brink of chaos and collapse, but the people find salvation in the OASIS. The Oasis is an expansive virtual reality universe created by James Halliday. When Halliday dies, he promises his immense fortune to the first person to discover a digital Easter egg that's hidden somewhere in the OASIS. When young Wade Watts joins the contest, he finds himself becoming an unlikely hero in a reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical world of mystery, discovery and danger.
2. Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Plot: Ferris bueller tricks his school into believing he’s knocking on death’s door. Then he hits the streets of Chicago with his best friend and girlfriend for a day of fun.
3. Going in Style
Plot: Lifelong buddies Willie (Morgan Freeman), Joe (Michael Caine) and Albert (Alan Arkin) decide to buck retirement and step off the straight-and-narrow when their pension funds become a corporate casualty. Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three men risk it all by embarking on a daring adventure to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money.
4. The Fast and The Furious
Plot: Dominic Toretto enjoys the adrenaline of street car racing and his fans treat him like a rock star. After a blazing encounter with the ruthless Johnny Tran, Dom decides to take Brian, a newcomer to street racing, under his wing. Dom's sister Mia sees something she likes in Brian, too. Trouble is, neither of them realize he's an undercover cop, and Dominic and his rival Johnny Tran are both the prime suspects in a case involving dirty money and big-rig hijacking.
5. The Replacements
Genre: Action, Comedy
Plot: It's late in the season; the playoffs are fast approaching; and the Washington Sentinels have just gone on strike. Scrambling for a solution, the Sentinels' owner Edward O'Neil hatches a plan to bring in legendary coach Jimmy McGinty to recruit a team of replacement players in exactly one week. For fans and owners alike, the strike is a disaster. But for Shane Falco and a mismatched crew of outsiders, it is the second chance they've waited their whole lives for.
So, there you have it. My top five films and in my opinion, not a single one can be misconstrued as boring. I hope you liked the insight of my personal preferences and I hope you'll come back next week to see my list of my top 5 T.V. shows.
