Jason Ancona's Top Ten Favorite Movies & Giveaway

Today I'm happy to welcome Debugging Tori Redding author, Jason Ancona. Also, there's a chance to win a copy of Debugging Tori Redding in it for y'all. And who doesn't love free books?

Getting onto Jason's top ten favorite movies list:
--
Since this post is part of a teen book tour, I'm excluding rated "R" movies.

Dead Poets Society -- Inspiring theme. Carpe diem. Seize the day.

Star Wars -- Still training to become a Jedi.

Breakfast At Tiffanys -- I fell in love with Audrey Hepburn watching this movie. A young woman in New York City falls for a struggling writer.

Napoleon Dynamite -- Laugh every time I see this movie. Kid's got dancing skills.

The Bourne Identity -- An assassin with amnesia hunted by the agency who trained him. Awesome!

Dumb and Dumber -- "Wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world?"

Raiders of the Lost Ark -- Who'd have thought that an archaeology professor could be so crafty with a whip?

Casablanca -- Old classic. Love story set in the early days of World War II.

Juno -- Michael Cera and Ellen Page are hilarious together. Very heartwarming story.

The Breakfast Club -- Students from various cliques bond during a Saturday detention. I'm a sucker for 80's movies. And music. Like the Simple Minds song Don't You: "Won't you, come see about me? I'll be alone, dancing, you know it, baby. Tell me your troubles and doubts, giving me everything, inside and out..."

Great list! Our taste in movies must be pretty similar. And, of course, I'm still in training to be a Jedi also. Thanks, Jason, for stopping by!
