I worked at a movie theater in high school, but I rarely go to the movies these days. I can’t sit still through an entire movie and I can’t deal with all the talking and cell phones and general noise in the theater.
These are the movies I watch over and over. I stop every time I’m channel surfing and see that they’re on.
Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey star in this beloved coming-of-age story set against the backdrop of a Catskill Mountains resort during the summer of 1963. Drawn to the staff quarters by the sounds of stirring music, vacationing 17-year-old Baby (Grey) meets rebellious Johnny (Swayze), the hotel dance instructor, who is as experienced as Baby is naïve. Baby becomes Johnny’s pupil in dance – and in love – in this heartwarming, spirit-lifting movie that continues to captivate generations of movie fans around the world.
The Sound of Music
A former nun leaves the convent to become a governess for the seven children of a wealthy, Austrian widower who has grown into a cold disciplinarian. Soon, the she opens the children to the wonders of life and the joy of music – and eventually softens the heart of their father and gains his love.
I only like the Julie Andrews version, not that awful Carrie Underwood version that was on NBC this year. I didn’t like Carrie before the movie but I love the story so much that I gave it a try anyway. Her “acting” didn’t turn me into a fan.
The Lord of the Rings trilogy
This critically acclaimed epic trilogy follows the quest undertaken by the hobbit, Frodo Baggins, and his fellowship of companions to save Middle-earth by destroying the One Ring and defeating the evil forces of the Dark Lord Sauron.
I can’t say I enjoyed The Hobbit. I thought it was pretty boring, although I probably will watch part 2 eventually.
The Breakfast Club
Five high school students, all different stereotypes, meet in detention, where they pour their hearts out to each other, and discover how they have a lot more in common than they thought.
