Narrowing down the movie list

Recently, I've come to notice that I have difficulty in choosing just one "favorite thing." For example, when asked what my favorite TV show is I could list off about five or six shows that I watch religiously. The same goes for musical artists, books, animals, etc. Basically, I have a hard time choosing just one thing to "love the most."
