13. Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi (Rebels attempt to keep bad guy from destroying the galaxy)

The links all go to the trailers for the movies.

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here. I've been playing for a while and this is my 368th time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.


  1. Blind Side looks great. I either enjoyed or loved all the rest. (Tolkien to Dirty Dancing is quite the head turner.)

  2. Wow, the Hobbit takes up a big portion of the list. I have lots of favorite movies but my mind goes blank when I try to think of them! best one of late was "Moon." I do like good Science Fiction.

  3. Excellent selection of movies. I've actually seen all of these, some more than others, and even own most of them. My T13

  4. I'm with you on #6-#12. Good movies!!
