Share your preferences, opinions, and recommendations about movies! Choose 5 types of movies to discuss:
comedy—“Love Actually”. Not sure it fits here but I think it does. I love the storyline…such a great reminder of what love is. But there are so many other movies I could name in this category as well especially some of the classics “Happy Gilmore” etc.
foreign–For me, it is the movie “Once” I love this movie. I hadn’t heard about it until one of my friends mentioned it. I rented it soon after and fell in love with the movie. I love the soundtrack. I need to get my own copy of this movie. Such a great love story!
children’s—-This one is hard because I love children’s music. I really think I am a kid at heart. “Finding Nemo” is such a great movie! I love the storyline and just think it is so darn cute! I also love the movie “Because of Winn Dixie” which is probably meant for older children but it is so fantastic! I could watch that movie over and over and over again. The music of Dave Matthews is a great addition to the storyline!
western/cowboy—“8 Seconds” I don’t know why but I enjoy this movie so much! The story of Lane Frost. There is just something about this storyline. During my college days, I used to put in the dvd of this movie while doing my laundry.
Musical—-I ADDED MY OWN CATEGORY! I love, love, love the movie “Rent.” Whenever I am feeling down and out, I pop in this movie. I know that probably sounds strange since this movie can be depressing at times but for some reason, it lifts my spirits. I think because in the end, life starts looking up etc. They also find a way to live life even in the midst of the craziness! The music is so great. I love “Seasons of Love.” I hope someday I get to see this movie done on Broadway.
Bonus: Tell about the first movie you ever saw and/or the last one!
The last movie I saw in the theatre was “Julie and Julia”. It was with my good friend C and we had so much fun. After the movie, we both came out wanting to go home and cook. But that was a couple months ago. There are a lot of movies out in the theatre right now that I would LOVE to go see!
I'm glad you recommended some movies I haven't even heard of, like "Once." I'm going to have to order those on Netflix. I belatedly remembered musicals, so it's nice you included them here.
