1.WillowThis first movie that falls into this category may be a bit of a personal preference that isn't shared by others, but for me this movie was sooooooooo good...I was, I don't know 5 or 6 the first time I watched it. I don't know who introduced me to it. I don't even remember the first time. Alls I know is I watched it multiple times throughout my early movie viewing career. It's as old as I am. Released in 1987. Written by George Lucas and directed by Ron Howard (how can you go wrong?)....(pronounced in my best goat voice)...Willow!
I was in love with the movie.
The village of little people was fascinating!
The crazy wildebeest/wild-boar dog monsters that terrorized the village of little people were seriously scary. Not to mention the freaky baboon/goblin things at the end. Oh and can't forget the scariest...the two headed ball-sack shaped dragon! Ahhh!
The friendship between Willow and Madmartigan. The love story between Madmartigan and Sorsha. The cute baby! Oh this movie was everything! Luckily my dad surprised me with a copy a few years ago (great gift)...I need to go watch now.
2.The LabyrinthHonorable early childhood mention: The Labyrinth! another just...so good..."play it again, again, again, Mommy!"...movie.
3. TitanicA movie that captured every girl's heart...and I was certainly no exception...Titanic.
This movie needs no description because we all loved it! I was a tweeny-bopper when it came out and was, like the rest of America, severely depressed at the end of it when Jack sunk to the bottom of the ocean..noooooooooo! I literally felt his pain at the end as I was frozen, unable to move, when the credits started to roll. Wahhh!
But its okay everybody...look what I've found...Jack is Back!
Yay...the Popsicle corpse of Jack comes back in the sequel. Did not know this existed until I did a google search of "jack sinking titanic" It does look like him though.
4. Legends of the Fall
This movie spawned my obsession with Mr. Pitt. I even spent real money on a purse that had Mrs. Pitt on the side (wow). I watched this movie for the first time and then literally watched it for the 2nd through 16th time consecutively following the first time. I'm not proud of this, but I couldn't get over the tragic story. My friend, Alison, knows how much I love this movie because she bought me a copy. This is one of Kenny's faves too. OMG we're so meant to be!
|Ooh La La|
5. Forrest...Forrest Gump
This movie is stupid good. Only thing that could make it better is if Forrest had gone to Auburn University instead of University of Alabama.
|it has everything...even my boo John Lennon|
|"is he smart or is he...."(tear rolls down my face)|
Okay enough....I see a movie marathon in my future!! Kenny get ready!
