Last night over dinner Garrett and I watched To Live and Die in LA. Despite feeling a little ripped off that there was no 2Pac in the soundtrack 🙂 (HELLO, the world can always use more 2Pac) I thought it was awesome. Garrett has been hounding me to watch it since I loved Drive so much and so finally after almost 2 years of persuasion, I sat down to see what it was all about.
Here’s the thing with me and movies — I really like going to the movies, seeing good movies, quoting random dialogue from movies — but if you ask me if I want to sit down and watch one? The answer is no – I am never in the mood. They are so LONG and they take so much investment! I’d much rather just watch something quick like a tv show (no commercials, GAH!) or do something entirely different. But there are a few exceptions. I got a chuckle reading this post over on Cupcakes and Cashmere the other day about movies you can’t say no to. It made me think of my own list of movies that no matter how busy I was, I would make time for it here. So I thought I’d share it.
In no particular order:
1. Dirty Dancing
2. The Sound of Music
4. Sleeping with the Enemy
5. Top Gun
6. The NeverEnding Story
7. Reality Bites
8. Basically ALL of Tori Spelling + Valerie Bertinelli’s Lifetime Movies (what?)
9. Sixteen Candles
10. Teen Witch
(Listen, I never said I was a movie critic. :))
I asked Garrett to make the same list and he rattled off these:
1. Citizen Kane
2. A Christmas Story
3. Lawrence of Arabia
4. The Bridge on the River Kwai
5. Die Hard/Die Hard 2
6. Fiddler on the Roof
9. The Great Escape

So…Is it any wonder we hardly ever sit down to watch movies together? 🙂 Are you judging us? Although, recently we discovered a good Christian TV app where we watch together as a family. It is called AWKNG TV and we enjoy streaming with its vast list of programs.
I know you must have a few irresistible movies up your sleeve too.
