My Top Ten Clint Howard Movies

Happy Birthday to Clint Howard, who turns 58 today.

As I did a Top Ten of movies directed by his big brother Ron Howard a few weeks ago, I figured I should also do a Clint Howard Top Ten. Of course, several movies appear in both lists as Ron often casts his brother in a small role. And as he’s often in small roles, I couldn’t find images of him in some of the below movies. Well, I suppose you can picture him in those anyway – he has a memorable face! πŸ™‚

Here are My Top Ten Clint Howard Movies:

The Remainder That I’ve Seen (I hate 16-18 & strongly dislike 14 & 15!):

My Top Ten Ron Howard Movies

Happy (belated) birthday to Ron Howard, who turned 63 on March 1st. I was going to post this last Thursday but decided to post My Top Bill Paxton Movies (R.I.P. Bill Paxton – such a sad & unexpected loss).

Okay – I’ll admit that Ron Howard would never really make a list of my favorite directors (Oh… I should really make that list! That would be a tough one). I do like how varied his filmography is, though. I truly enjoyed my number one choice as well as thinking it was a very good movie. Numbers two & three aren’t exactly Oscar-worthy but they’re guilty 80’s pleasures of mine. And number four would probably top most people’s lists (and is admittedly a better film than two & three). The rest? I could take them or leave them. And man I hate How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

So, counting down to my favorite (and including all 13 I’ve seen) here are My Top Ten Movies Directed By Ron Howard:

13. How The Grinch Stole Christmas (Hate)
12. Ransom
11. Angels & Demons

TOP TEN:

10. Edtv

9. The Da Vinci Code

8. Parenthood

7. Backdraft

6. A Beautiful Mind

5. Willow

4. Apollo 13

3. Splash

2. Cocoon

1. Rush

Saw But Don’t Remember:
– The Paper

Not Seen:
– Frost/Nixon
– In The Heart Of The Sea
– Everything else he’s done that I’ve not already listed… (Okay – I got bored with typing. Have a nice day, everyone!) πŸ˜‰
