Here’s something that sounded like it would be fun, but it’s harder than I thought. On a forum I frequent, someone asked about your favorite movies.
I asked Brian last night, what his are. We both kept shouting out faves. Then he said “what if you could only have ten movies? Which ten would you have?” I figured that since some of his favorites are mine, I could pick some different ones. You know, like I could have twenty favorites. Nope. I can only choose ten.
I start looking through our collection. Trimming it down to just ten would be very, very hard. One for sure would be “Bridges of Madison County”. Not because I watch it all that often, but because, when you’re in the right mood, it’s a great movie for the release of a good cry. I know one person who hated that film because she felt it glamorized an affair, but for me, it had the opposite effect. I mean, who’d want to go through their life knowing there was something better? Something more deep and more passionate? I’d rather remain ignorant, thank you very much. Ignorance is bliss. There was so much longing in that movie, it was almost tangible. Huh uh. Not something I’d want to be a part of. But I like the movie.
But I really don’t know what the other nine would be. Tin Cup? I love that movie. Thunderheart? I’ve watched it over and over. The Incredibles? Another one of those movies we never get tired of. Pirates of the Caribbean; the Black Pearl? Leave behind Captain Jack Sparrow? Are you nuts? I just don’t know. I suck at choosing where to eat dinner, I’d have a really hard time narrowing down my list of ten most desired movies.
What about you? What would your choices be? And why would they be your choices?
