They’re not necessarily Oscar winners. Nor are they million dollar blockbusters. There might even be titles you’ve never heard of before. Still, they’re some of my favorite movies from over the years. They’ve all touched me … or tickled me … or just reached me in some way to the point that I felt compelled to buy them so that I could view them any time and as many times as I wanted.
I should point out that I purchase movies for myself very infrequently. Sure, we have a decent film library in our home but more than 95% of these titles belong to my children. The movies I’m talking about today are just for me. You can tell a lot about a person from his or her movie preferences. Which is why I’m nervous as hell about sharing mine. (Deep breath) Okay, on the count of three …
… oh, whatever. Here they are!
1. Benny & Joon
3. Down With Love
4. The Full Monty
5. Moulin Rouge
6. My Life
7. Sliding Doors
Do I still have a few titles I want to pick up? Yes, of course. There are actually several that come to mind immediately. I’ll try to get that together for tomorrow’s post. Until then, what about YOU?
What movies do you love so much that you just had to own them?
June is Blog Post by Numbers Month. Wanna play with Mel and me? Just write a “listy-type” post with a number in the title (ex. FOUR Reasons I Love Mayonnaise, SIX Things You Can Do With A Paper Clip). Then link back to us and tweet us about it so we can include you on June 30th in our final list: (Number-Yet-To-Be-Determined) Great Bloggers Who Played the Blog Post by Numbers Game!
I also own Sliding Doors, which means that movie sold two copies! I love it, though. I would own My Life, but I fear that my can’t-breath-ugly-crying that would frighten my children.
