I know we rag on Evan Tanner a lot, but the truth of the matter is we’ve always loved him. And it’s not just his balls-out fighting style and crazy adventures that make us big fans – he’s also got a kickass taste in movies. Here’s Evan Tanner’s favorite movies list, taken from his Myspace page:
Equilibrium, Cinderella Man, The Illusionist, Children of Men, The Fountain, Fight Club, Lonesome Dove, Unforgiven, Far and Away, Tombstone, Easy Rider, Finding Forester, Goodwill Hunting, Lady in the Water, The Count of Monte Cristo, Castaway, Hoosiers, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, V For Vendetta, The Libertine, Braveheart, Harold and Kumar go to White Castle, Last of the Mohicans, Rock Star, Schindler’s List, The Last Samurai, Sleepless in Seattle, Gladiator, Life as a House, Dances with Wolves, Emma, Sense and Sensibility, The A&E version of Pride and Prejudice. Casablanca, Notorious, The Bachelor and the Bobbysoxer, An Affair to Remember, A Beautiful Mind, Legends of the Fall, Invincible, Forest Gump, Troy, the first Matrix, Super Troopers, The Breakfast Club, American Flyers, Vision Quest, Phenomenom, Eight Seconds, Pool Hall Junkies, Days of Thunder, Risky Business, The Electric Horseman, Cool Hand Luke, Saving Private Ryan, Quigley Down Under, Mr. Baseball, Blow, Big, Gandhi, Malcom X, Lawrence of Arabia, The Cutting Edge, the Japanese version of “Shall We Dance”, The Horseman on the Roof, The Seven Samurai—.
What an awesome mix of serious film and stoner classics. Other than Sleepless in Seattle, there’s ne’er a bad movie in this entire list. I especially like how he specified that he only liked the first Matrix film. And including Harold and Kumar? Tanner, you da man. Can we be best friends?
