Today I present my go to movies….the movies I could watch again and again and again. (For the recorde “If Beale Street Could Talk will not ever be on this list.  I saw that yesterday and it was so slow I think I’m still watching it…)

Some of these movies I’ve talked about before.  Others are crossovers from yesterday. Some might be odd choices, but there you have it. These are movies I’ve seen so many times I know when something has been edited out…

  1. The Cutting Edge- Uptight lead female character.  Yup- has me written all over it.
  2. The Sure Thing- Hyper organized main character who carries her Filofax around. It’s like looking in a mirror
  3. Arsenic and Old Lace- This is an old comedy starring Cary Grant. I think its hilarious in its just slightly absurd fashion. Love.
  4. Raiders of the Lost Ark- here’s my anecdote: when this movie first came out I had no interest in seeing it.  One night I was out with friends and we were going to see Superman, but when we got to the theater Superman was sold out.  There were tickets left to see Raiders though. So we saw it.  I never looked back. Love this movie.  Could see it a million times. Have seen it a million times.
  5. Bridget Jones’s Baby- I know this might seem like an odd choice until you consider how I  would like to be in a love triangle with Colin Firth and Patrick Dempsey
  6. It’s A Wonderful Life- It’s not Christmas without this one…
  7. Some Like it Hot- I could just watch the last scene over and over again
  8. Young Frankenstein- I laugh just thinking about this movie.  I’m laughing now…
  9. Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein-  this is the one with all the monsters
  10. Dial M for Murder- Hitchcock.  Yeah. This one is clever and fun, even though it is about a murder and all

Ok- what are your faves? What are your desert island movies?

      1. What is humankind?
        If you mean Jumanji then the old one…. My parents don’t see English movies, and this is the first where I forced them to see with me. The glee on their faces when the game causes animals to come was priceless. So definitely the old one

  1. Monty python and holy grail, hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, muppets Christmas carol, a whole slew of musicals (king and I, greatest showman, newsies, to name just a few). Young Frankenstein also makes me laugh!

  2. Shooter. Probably the only movie with Mark Wahlberg in it I like this much. I don’t know why, it’s all conspiracy theory stuff, but I really liked that movie.

    Every Xmas i watch jim Carry as the Grinch. The set, the costumes…so fun!

  3. I agree that If Beale Street Could Talk was very artsy and slow. I almost fell asleep, but it was a great way to show the in-depth impact of how the police abuse their power and of how the justice system isn’t just.

    My favorite movie of all time is Love Jones; it’s a great love story. I also really like School of Rock, which for some reason, surprises people lol

    1. School of rock is a great movie! My biggest problem with Beale is the fact that it’s a beautiful lyrical work, but that doesn’t mean it translates well to the screen. The filming was so understated that my friend had trouble hearing some of the lines…and since it was basically prose poetry, if you missed a word you often missed the point. But glad I saw it!
