This week’s topic:

Favorite Movies

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.

Dirty Dancing

Dirty Dancing

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

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

The Lord of the Rings

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

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.



  1. Those are really good movies. I’m not a big of The Sound of Music, but the others are instant favorite classics. Great post.:)
