Favorite Movies – 31:11

Movies.  I love a good movie; mostly chick flicks. And I realize in the case of movies, good is a relative term.  Your good may be my bad and likewise.  If you read through my list of favorite movies you will not find anything more profound than Mary Poppins.  I’m OK with that.  I know I can be deep and profound when I need to be.

With movies, I tend to lean more to the romantic comedy with the occasional children’s movie thrown in, which some might say is shallow.  I’m OK with that.  I watch movies for the pure entertainment and that little happy glow when they all live happily ever after.  They are my escape from reality.  I also like movies for the little bits of my dreams I see in them.

I have enjoyed a lot of movies and this list could probably contain more than eight, but for today this is a list of my favorite movies in no particular order. To make this list it had to be a movie I have seen more than once or twice.  A movie that I would sit down now and watch again and then again tomorrow if you wanted me to watch it with you.

I plan to re-visit one of these movies this weekend and write about it in Monday’s post.  So stay tuned.  You might catch a glimpse of why it is on my favorites list.  I may even learn something about myself.  Maybe you too will be inspired to watch a good movie this weekend, even one of mine.

  1. Mary Poppins is one of my favorites, as well. I enjoy many of the older musicals, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Camelot, Brigadoon. With an 8-year-old son, I have the pleasure of having a reason to watch current children’s movies. I saw “Planes” last week and enjoyed it very much. I especially enjoyed watching my son enjoy it! Maybe that is why some of my favorites are my favorites, because of the memories of those with whom I have shared it!


  2. We have some similar favorites…..I may need to do a favorite movie post! Mary Poppins and You’ve Got Mail would definitely make my list!


  3. I totally agree with you about movies, I don’t think it is shallow, I think most of us have so much reality and negativity in our lives that when we seek entertainment it should make you happy. I really like all of these movies!


  4. Interesting… In this list we don’t have overlapping movie favorites. I think Mary Poppins is my favorite of your favorites. It may have something to do with the fact that “kids” movies convey life themes in simple ways.


    1. Or, maybe you just like more highbrow movies. Although I remember watching Green Card with you, I think. And yes, kids movies convey life themes in simple ways. I want to enter pictures like they do in Mary Poppins and visit places I only dream about.


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!
