So yesterday I told you that I’m not a huge TV fan. I don’t watch much TV – I do read a lot. However, I’m a total movie junkie. I watch wayyyy more movies than I do TV. And when I find something I like, I stick with it. Just like I have my favorite books that I read over and over again, I have my favorite flicks that I like to throw in when there’s nothing else on.
I have SO many favorite movies that it would be almost impossible to pick just one, so we’ll divide into categories here.
Favorite Classic Movie
Casablanca. Hands down. Although I love pretty much any movie from Jimmy Stewart (see favorite Christmas movie, below), this is by far my favorite. It is romantic and sad and sweet and action packed. It is cinematography magic. If you haven’t seen it, shame on you! And don’t you DARE watch the colorized version. It’s horrible and it is meant to be watched in black and white. This is my favorite rainy Sunday afternoon curled up under a blanket movie.
Favorite Modern Movie
Now, I’m defining “modern” is within the last three- four years. There was some movies from the 90s (Braveheart, anyone?) that I will watch over and over. But within the last few years, it has to be Midnight in Paris. I am not a huge Woody Allen fan, so I was shocked at how much I loved this movie. The soundtrack is also to die for. I’ve probably watched this movie a dozen times in the last year, at least.
Favorite Chick Flick
Where the Heart Is. I’m a huge Natalie Portman fan, and I’m still an Oklahoma girl at heart. This one will be one of by faves forever. The book by Billie Letts is awesome as well.
Favorite Christmas Movie
It’s a Wonderful Life. Like I said I love Jimmy Stewart. I wish there were more modern day actors with his talent.
So there you have it! Some of my faves, although there are many, many more.
