Hmmm.  Why only the "top 7" fav's??  Does this mean of ALL TIME???  This is a tough one because there are sooooo many, good ones, eh?  Well here goes it:

1)  Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (I also like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with Johnny Depp ~ Oops, I cheated that's two! LOL!)

2)  The Wizard of Oz ~ favorate from childhood 'till now!  Brings back such good memories!

3)  Untamed Heart ~ Christian Slater, Marisa Tomei, Rosie Perez... One of my favorite lines from a movie is in this one from Rosie Perez (with her annoying voice) "You are like wet sand in my underwear".

4) Pump Up The Volume ~ another one with Christian Slater.  I remember seeing this and thinking WOW!  What a kick-ass concept!  I immediately bought the sound track b/c it was so unbelievable.  Hate to admit ~ this is how I got into The Pixies!!

5) Good Fellas ~ Awesome gangster, maffia movie!  Some of my favorite actors are in this one: Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci, Robert DiNiro!!  (I'm part Italian on my dad's side - although you'd NEVER know by looking at me!!)  Favorite line from this movie, "Funny how? I'm a little fucked up maybe, but I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I'm here to fuckin' amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny?"  ~~  I LOVE this one!

6) The Breakfast Club ~ Classic, classic movie!!  In highschool, one of my best friends and I used to get shitfaced and sit in her family room late at night watching this movie.  We would see who could recite the most lines.  I think we both knew the whole movie by heart!

7)  True Romance ~ Another Christian Slater movie!  Just love this one - reminds me of happy times when I was in my 20's and carefree.  A friend introduced me to it and I was hooked!!  LOL ~ Love Brad Pitt's role in this one! 

OK! This is just absolutely ridiculous!  To only name 7 is IMPOSSIBLE!  There are so many other "top" movies to list... it should be "top 20 movies" or "top 7 love, horror, action, drama, etc, movie"!!  Oh well ~ I tried.

Psychiatrists can give you drugs... it's the psychologists that are the real racketeers!

I'm only kidding, of course. I must say, however, sometimes it is nice to have someone who's paid to listen to you vent / think out loud, and be able to objectively point out fallacies in your reasoning, or subtle but destructive or counterproductive thinking.

And this is coming from someone who's scoffed at the practice for a long time, knowing a few people who went into therapy, and came out convinced that they had no problems, and that everyone else was the problem. Or who ended up on the opposite end of the spectrum and became full-time "victims" with no responsibility for their thoughts and actions.

I guess my point is that sometimes an external perspective is nice, as long as you are open to it, and use it well (take it into consideration, evaluate it, don't take it as the "word of god"). And besides, you pay them to listen to you, no matter what you say.

I have no shame in saying that I see someone every couple of weeks, and it's mainly to "think out loud" and reason some things out / get a perspective on things that I don't want to drag into time spent with my friends/girlfriend.
