It’s that time again. The Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge hosted by Long and Short Reviews. Today’s topic is: Favorite movies of all time and why
Ooooooh … this is a tough one. I love movies. LOVE. I start jonesing if I haven’t been to the movies in a few months. I’d go weekly if I could. And I love to rewatch movies. I’m not like some people (… you know who you are… ) who don’t like to reread books or rewatch movies. When I love something, I can’t get enough of them. So, off the top of my head, in no particular order than the order in which they came to me, here are at least some movies that I’ve watched dozens of times, can quote from and recommend to friends.
1. The Princess Bride
Because, of course. Seriously, anyone who doesn’t enjoy this movie at least a little needs their IQ and sense of humor checked. So clever, so fun, so silly and sweet. I quote from this ALL.THE.TIME. “I’m not a witch, I’m your wife!” or “He’s only mostly dead.” or “Mawwige… mawwige is what bwings us togedder today…”
2. Undercover Blues
Bet you haven’t heard of this one! It was never super popular, but OMG so funny!! Here’s the trailer:
And Stanley Tucci stole the show as Muerte:
3. Cat Ballou
Way back when I was in high school, and TV only had five channels (ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS and UHF), in the summer there was either repeats or, in my area, the TV 40 Classic Film Festival! I watched a (new to me) classic every night. I saw Casablanca, Mr. Deeds Goes to Washington, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir and so many more … and I saw what eventually became one of my favorite movies of all time, Cat Ballou.
I’m sensing a theme here …
4. Back to the Future Trilogy
Such a clever set of movies… yeah, the second one wasn’t great, but 1 & 3 were a hoot!
5. The Road to El Dorado
My kid turned me on to this one… bet you haven’t heard of this either! SO MUCH fun. If you have a slightly warped sense of humor, you should watch this one…
6. All things Marvel…
7. While You Were Sleeping
Bored yet? Okay, I’m going to stop my list, but in a nutshell … I love romantic comedy, action/adventure, mystery/suspense, sci-fi/fantasy… actually about the only thing I don’t like is stupid humor (pretty much every Adam Sandler, for example). I’m so excited to see everyone else’s posts for ideas on what to watch!
