Someone asked on the Flickchart Facebook group this week how many movies in our top 100 had colors in the title, so I figured this was a good opportunity for me to write up a quick Top 5, Bottom 5 list of my favorites and least favorites! This is out of 2065 movies on my Flickchart thus far.
1. Moulin Rouge! (2001, #3). I can watch this movie over and over again without ever getting tired of it.
2. The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985, #26). My second favorite Woody Allen flick of all time, with, as I've mentioned recently, an amazing performance from Jeff Daniels.
3. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003, #40). While this may be a bit too high for this movie, I still do really enjoy it, mostly thanks to Johnny Depp's uber-fun performance.
4. On Golden Pond (1981, #108). I owe this one a rewatch soon, as it's been way too long since my last viewing. I remember being captivated by Henry Fonda and Katherine Hepburn's performances.
5. Black Swan (2010, #124). King's Speech is a good movie and all, but this bizarre yet beautiful movie by Darren Aronofsky pretty easily gets my vote for best movie of 2010.
1. Legally Blonde 2: Red, White, & Blonde (2003, #2055). The first movie was fluffy but forgettable, but this one... holy crap, it was painfully bad.
2. Far From Home: The Adventures of Yellow Dog (1995, #2004). This is probably too low for this movie, as I don't remember it being painful... but then again I can't remember it at all, so it certainly wasn't good.
3. Ladies in Lavender (2004, #1969). Another one that is just mind-numbingly boring. I had high hopes for it and then couldn't even pay attention through most of it.
4. Aquamarine (2006, #1938). Whoo, this movie was dumb, even for a preteen romance.
5. Snow White and the Huntsman (2012, #1814). A dismal, ugly movie that became ridiculous the minute it tried to pretend Kristen Stewart was objectively prettier than Charlize Theron.
How about you? What are some of your favorite/least favorite color-titled movies?
