Since we are close to inaugurating the 44th President of the United States of America, Mr. (Senator) Barack Obama, I was happy to have found a post over at the auteurs which lists the soon to be President’s favorite movies of all time. I knew I liked the man (and voted for him!) for a reason, he has good taste. We already discussed the possible Obama Movie casting choices for those that care to re-hash that. This list is simple, just 5 films, so I will simply go ahead and list them here. (In no particular order):
The Godfather – 1972
The Godfather Part II -1974
Casablanca – 1942
Lawrence of Arabia – 1962
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest – 1975
I will personally admit to loving Cuckoo’s Nest and respecting the hell out of 3 other films on the list. Admittedly, now that this is here, I might have to see Lawrence of Arabia. Doth that make me a bad man? He seems to love the 70′s so I wonder, why no Deliverance?! -j/k. Kinda reads like a universal top 5 list in a lot of ways, agree?
