Lists: Here is where I tell you what you should like, cuz well, I like it.

This edition of lists was inspired by the super cute movie "Good Burger" that Jasmine, Sheila and Asher and I watched last night.  The movie was released in 1997 though I never saw it at the time.  It will find a place in my "Favourite family movies of the 1990s" list that includes a few of my all time favorite movies.  Enjoy.

notes:  I actually had a hard time narrowing this list to 20.  The top 4 rank among my favourite movies ever.  Some of these I haven't seen in at least 15 years, and will enjoy watching them again with Jasmine over the next few months.  Some of these I have seen dozens of times.  Free Willy probably has the most viewings out of the whole bunch.  We wore that VHS tape out at Mom and Dad's.
