Ok, so this was supposed to be posted on Friday - but I have been suffering from a horrible cold. First I had a really sore throat, then a runny nose & sneezing, then coughing and coughing and more coughing. I woke up twice last night with coughing fits. Ugh. I think I am on the mend.
OK, on to the Top 5 . . . there are movies that I have watched over and over again. It's funny, but they are the ones I will stop and watch when they are aired on television, even though I own them. There are actually more than 5 of these, but I will just pick a few of them. Otherwise this would easily be a top 10 or even a top 20.
5. Jurassic Park 1 & 2
Dinosaurs and Jeff Goldblum - what's not to like? Most of the time I root for the dinosaurs. In the same vein, I have also watched Independence Day over and over again, but instead of dinosaurs you have aliens. Still the lesson is to listen to what Jeff has to say, it might keep you alive.
4. Groundhog Day
My heart still breaks when Phil tries to save the life of the old, homeless man over and over again. Sniff. The dates with Rita cheer me up. Bill Murray is also great in Ghostbusters 1 and 2.
3. Save The Last Dance and Dirty Dancing
I love a good dance/romance movie. These are my two favourites, but I also love Step Up and Strictly Ballroom, and Bring It On (although that is cheerleading, not dancing, but I feel they are related). Oh and Center Stage and Honey and Coyote Ugly (although that has more singing) and Fame and Flashdance. This could be a whole list of it's own.
2. The Shawshank Redemption and The Usual Suspects
Just two, really good dramas. I guess both are related to crime. You got Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins in a prison drama. I love the moment when Andy breaks out. Then you have Kevin Spacey and Gabriel Byrne in a mystery with an awesome twist. The moment we find out who Keyser Söze really is, I could watch that a million times.
1. Sweet Home Alabama
There is nothing better than a feel good/cheesy/romantic/chick flick movie. Sweet Home Alabama has that whole southern charm going for it as well. And a baby in a bar. I also love anything with Hugh Grant. Love Actually and 4 Weddings and a Funeral would be at the top of the list, but you also have Notting Hill, Two Weeks Notice, Music & Lyrics, Sense & Sensibility, and Nine Months.
Hmmmm seems like I might have mentioned about 26 movies. I apologize. Sort of. I could have listed another 26, easily.
Check out A Warm Cup of Jo, Divulge with Dani, and A Piece of Apple for more awesome movies that have been viewed over and over.
