I watch a lot of movies. I am not joking when I say I have seen them all. I get Blockbuster Online and lurve it to pieces! I lurve to watch a show, sip tea and knit. Oh yeah, I am a multi-tasker that way. I can waste time and feel like I am getting something done. Who 'da thunk?
I really have so many favourites. Some are old, some are new. All of them qualify as great in my book. So, I will share a couple with you.
PRIDE and PREJUDICE::
This is at the top of my best movie ever list. I saw this and was brought to sighs and then tears. This movie made me sigh like a love sick girl, wishing for empire waists, the English countryside and true love.
Sound of Music::
Julie Andrews is amazing! The music is amazing. Everything about this one is amazing. (Thesaurus anyone?)
Anne of Green Gables PBS mini series::
Oh, Anne! That just about sums this one up. I watched it back in the 80's and was instantly swept off to P.E.I. (Prince Edward Island, Canada) I remember going over to my Gran's house to catch the weekly installments. It was like torture having to wait a whole week for the next show. I would dream of Anne's antics all week, then on movie night, armed with popcorn balls and tissues, Gran and I were transported to another time and place, by the stories of this little red haired girl.
I just love it, actually. This movie stars a few of my favourite actors; Liam, Collin, Hugh to name a few. The story takes place 5 weeks before Christmas. The first time hubby and I watched this movie it really was 5 weeks to the day till Christmas. Every year since, we rent this movie at the 5 weeks till Christmas mark. In my book it is a must see love story.
Robert Duvall. Need I say more?
This is one of those really weird comedies that leave ya quoting the whole movie. At dinner. At the grocery. At WalMart. Also starring Liam.
I can pull a quote from this movie for any situation. It's true. This is the most brilliante' kids show ever made. I am sure of it.
Trust me when I say that this is just the very beginnings of my must see movie list. Reader, what is your "Best Movie Ever"?
