Day 5: favorite movies you never get sick of watching
March 5, 2013
Movies – now this is something that I can really get into.Most of us have been watching movies for more
years than we invested in our own education.My love of this form of entertainment stems from the need of
escape.When life can be stressful, I
just popped in a movie and can clear my mind to a state of lethargic ignorance.So here it is, my top ten (although it could
probably be more like top 50 if I could) favorite movies that I never get sick
Top Ten Favorite Movies
10.) Super Troopers (2001) – Directed by Jay Chandrasekhar, this comedy
is developed by the Broken Lizard Comedy Team, its other members that are also
in the movie are Erik Stolhanske (Rabbit), Steve Lemme (Mac), Kevin Heffernan
(Farva), and Paul Stoter (Foster). Fiercely
funny, this comedy leaves me in stitches every time I watch it.
9.) The Prince of Egypt (1998) – Watching this movie, each time, I feel
this emotional connection.From the
immensely talented cast to the music, it just grabs my breath and doesn’t
release it until it’s over.One of the
scenes that I look forward to every single time I watch it is when Moses parts
8.) Little Women (1994) – This movie set the industry afire with Winona
Ryder’s acting possibilities.She led an
all-star cast including a future Batman (Batman Begins 2005), Mary Jane Watson
(Spider-Man 2002), and Carrie Masterson (Homeland 2011).Leading the young cast is Susan Sarandon, an
acting goddess that has given so many outstanding performances in her filmography
7,) Disney Animated Features: when I was younger this would have been
number one, hands down.Being more
mature, I didn’t want to do a top ten of only Disney movies (I totally could
though).Among the list would include
Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Aladdin, The Lion King, Pocahontas, and Mulan
(just to name a few).
6.) Encino Man (1992) – I can’t tell you how many times I watched this
movie during my high school years.This
movie was my gateway toward my love for Brendan Frazer.Full of the 90’s quirky comedy, this story
introduces you to Link (like, the missing link) who was a caveman that became a
Popsicle and defrosted by Sean Astin (Dave).When I watch this movie, it is just a fun time.
5.) Cold Mountain (2003) – Another all-star cast, this movie follows
Jude Law, Nicole Kidman, and Renee Zellweger during the American Civil War. It
doesn’t just pull at your heart strings; it takes them out and uses them to
pluck a harmonious blend of drama with tragic human stories.
4.) Meet Me in St. Louis (1944) – Judy Garland leads this cast through
the life and times in the 1900’s before the World Fair.Every time I hear “ding-ding-ding goes the trolley”
my heart literally does zing and metaphorically jump with delight.
3.) Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954) – I couldn’t tell you when
the first time I watched this movie was, but I can tell you that I have seen it
many times since.The story, music, and
acting are combined to produce that magic of MGM movies during the era.My favorite scene is when the brothers are
singing of their loneliness.This movie
holds a special place in my heart.
2.) The Goonies (1985) – I have never met a person that doesn’t like
this movie.Including Sean Astin, Josh
Brolin, and Corey Feldman this movie gives the viewer an experience of
adventure with great laughs and leaves you in childlike wonder of the
1.) Jurassic Park (1993) – Every
time I see that this movie is on, I will immediately tune-in.I can’t get enough of the dinosaurs and
dramatic goodness.I just read the other
day, someone had posted something to the effect of – just admit it, when you
see water in a cup shaking you think a dinosaur will come crashing through (why
yes, yes I do!).
This reaffirmed that I am a movie fan, I have always loved to watch
movies, and I hope that I always will find the enjoyment within them.There are so many other movies that I can’t
resist watching when they are on like Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, 50 First
Dates, Sherlock Holmes, The Avengers or most of the comic book to movie
franchises, but I don’t want to waste anymore of your valuable time.
Until next time or the next… dream
