Thankfully today’s question is much easier than the last one. My challenge is to list my top five favorite movies. Tell me if you notice a theme.
- Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood
- Secondhand Lions
- Big Fish
- The Help
Any movie with a little laughter and a lot of love hits the spot with me. I actually think I cried during all of these, but not so much that it took away from the sweet life lessons and the comedic relief. I highly recommend any of these movies, or all of them. As a matter of fact, I could definitely spend a day with a tin of popcorn, a gallon of sweet tea, a box of chocolates and a pack of tissues and binge watch these one right after the other.
Just for balance, I think I’ll list my top 5 least liked movies.
- Where The Red Fern Grows
- Old Yeller
- A Dog’s Purpose
- Marley and Me
- Anything where the damn dog dies or gets hurt.
I guess there’s a theme there, too.
Give me a rom-com any day of the week and I’ll be suckered in without fail. Sweet Home Alabama is my number one. I’m mean, Josh Lucas had me at, “You’re shittin’ me, rite?” Oh my word! Other than, “You is kind, you is smart, you is important.”, that is my favorite line from a movie, ever! Even over, “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” (As spoken by Patrick Swayze, of course.) Swoon!
It’s a short post, but I think it probably tells you a lot about me. What about your favorites? Am I missing a really great, must see? If so, leave me a note in the comments and I’ll put it on my watch list. We watched “Before I Fall” last night. It wasn’t bad. We were either going to watch that, or “The Shack” and I think I’ve got to build some emotional stamina before I can watch “The Shack”. That may be a Saturday night kind of movie, so I have the rest of the weekend to recover.
Speaking of movies, our library is having a free showing of “Hidden Figures” tonight and I’ve got a hot date to go see it with. (Britney’s gorgeous. Seriously!) It’s another that I would highly recommend, with a lot of love, heart and some really great lessons in strength and compassion, too. If you get a chance to watch it, I think you’ll be glad you did. This is my third viewing and I don’t ordinarily re-watch movies unless they’re top notch.
It’s Monday again, already! I hope your Monday is filled with laughter and love and every blessing that you’re hoping for and that your weekend arrives quickly and goes by slowly! Have a great day, friends! Enjoy the sunshine!
