 Day 9 - Favorite Movies

Today we are asked to share our favorite movies.  Oh my gosh - where do I start?  I don't think I have enough time to type all those up!  I LOVE movies.  Just love them!  I don't have a particular genre that I love, I love all kinds of movies.  I feel about movies the way I feel about books.  I love falling into a good book or movie and getting swept away.  I love being in that reality for a while.

This is just a small representation of movies that I love.  I love all the Harry Potters, Practical Magic is a given!  The Batman series with Christian Bale is the best ever (although I love Michael Keaton!)  Speaking of Michael Keaton - Beetleguise!  Sleepless in Seatle, Pride & Prejudice, The Ring, both the Chris Hemsworth Thor movies.  I liked the older Star Trek movies, my fav being Wrath of Khan but I love the new Star Trek with Chris Pine.  The original Star Wars Trilogy - didn't like the second trilogy so much.  The Truth about Cats & Dogs, A Time to Kill, Miss Congeniality, The Witches of Eastwick, What Lies Beneath, The Bourne Trilogy, Ransom, Letters to Juliet, Let Me In, Easy A, The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink...

Honestly, I could go on all day!  I used to work in a video store and would stock up on all the movies that I liked.  I don't really buy videos much anymore.  Now I just rent them from the library.  If it is something I know I want to see over and over, I'll buy it or ask for it for xmas or birthday.

I have a large collection of DVD and VHS tapes.  I have no idea what I'll do with all my VHS tapes when I can't get a VHS player anymore.  

Hmm... now I need to re-watch a couple of these.  Maybe Skeleton Key (FABULOUS!) but I'll need to watch the ones from the library first - The Conjuring, On Frozen Ground and the first season of Hannibal.

Have a wonderful day!

It sounds like you're the right person for movie suggestions. I love to watch movies when it's snowing (tis the season), otherwise, I have a hard time staying still long enough :)

Love your selection of movies. Originally I wasn't sure about the Harry Potter movies, until we watched them all (for the first time) last Christmas. I loved how the storyline progressed. Also a fan of the Narnia movies. Have not yet seen either of the Hunger Game movies - maybe in a few years. Great list!

I agree, I could never choose a favorite! I too love Practical Magic, Skeleton Key, Easy A...

Your font is better now, btw :)

I love the wide array of films you've shared! I'm a big fan of Practical Magic and the Harry Potter films too :) And Wrath of Khan! And Thor! I haven't seen The Skeleton Key though, might have to add it to my list!

that's a pretty eclectic list, and mercifully free of cars doing 120 mph in downtown San Francisico.
