Top 5 Film Couples

One of the podcasts I listen to religiously is Peter Rios's (late of Comic Geek Speak) "The Daily Rios."  His most recent episode for Tuesday, 29 January, was on his Top 5 movie couples.  As he qualifies in the introduction, these are not the "best" or his "favorite" couples, just the Top 5 that immediately came to mind.

With that in mind, I decided to drop in my own Top 5, in no particular order:

1. My favorite actor, Daniel Day-Lewis, in one of my favorite roles.  I've watched this movie a lot, and it never gets old. (THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS)

2. stole this one from Mr. Rios.  Loved this movie as a kid, and I still love it today.  A great, and fun, fantasy that is epic without taking itself too seriously. (THE PRINCESS BRIDE)

3.  I knew Peter would have a John Cusack scene; I just expected it to be this (SAY ANYTHING)

4. For the longest time, this was my all-time favorite movie.  It's still up there, just not quite #1 (STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK)

5. This is my all-time favorite movie.  Darren Aronofsky manages to get amazing work out of his actors, and he managed to make one of the most emotionally intense films I've ever seen with this one.  The movie that made me take Hugh Jackman seriously as an actor.  Shame on me for not seeing his talent sooner. (THE FOUNTAIN)

So, what are your top 5 - or favorite, or best - film couples?  Drop them in the comments, and thanks.
