Think About Your Favorite Movies, Then Read This

Think About Your Favorite Movies, Then Read This

So people usually have this crazy reaction when they hear that I don’t particularly like watching movies. They almost seem offended when they find out that I haven’t seen Star Wars or Harry Potter films. It isn’t that I don’t like movies.. I just don’t like watching them.

Now you get it?

I didn’t think so. Let’s just pretend I made a very compelling argument right there and pretend to be convinced.

I really like stories, in books and in conversations. I like them in movies too, but I watch movies in pieces because it is difficult for me to be guided entirely by a screen where my mind has no wiggle room. Explosion here, the sound of steps in an empty hallway there. I would know exactly what a character’s voice sounds like and that’s weird to me. No mystery, no questioning. Were stories really meant to be told like that?

Anyway, I would like to welcome myself back into this blog.

*applause*

Alright. Cool.

The question of the day is:

If you were stranded on an island, and you could bring with you 5 movies, which movies would they be?

  1. Twilight. But in 5 different languages so I could feel like I was doing something productive with my time.

    1. Angie, that is a great idea! Wow.

      But Twilight…? Haha

      1. Well now you all know my dirty little secret. Haha. But now that I think about it, watching one movie all the time could get weird. At some point, I’d probably end up drawing taylor lautners face on a rock and talking to myself.

  2. I’ll bring five DVD’s of ‘Erin Brockovich’.

    Nah! Kidding. But that’s just to emphasize how much I like that movie.
    So back to the point. I’ll bring ‘Erin Brockovich’, ‘The Help’, ‘What Happens In Vegas’, ‘A Separation’, ‘The Conjuring’ (Just to lose sleep so that I don’t become prey to some animal!)

    Now I know you said you don’t really like watching movies but still, which movies would you bring along?

    Aaaannd, welcome back! 😀

    1. The Conjuring? Whoa. Creepy.

      Thanks for sharing, aaannd thanks. To be honest, I’m not sure I’ve seen enough movies to come up with a list, haha. But since I HAVE to:

      1. Mary and Max
      2. Goodwill Hunting
      3. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
      4. The Nightmare Before Christmas
      5. Saving Private Ryan

      1. ‘Mary and Max’ – Yes!
        That is such a sweet movie. The concept of pen-pals has always been dear to me and that movie was so beautiful! Wise to have made it No. 1, Edwin. Haha!

      1. Thank you, Angie.
        Find me on the island, eh? I’m on the hammock tied to the tallest coconut trees. 🙂

        1. You bring the Julia Roberts movies, I’ll bring the booze!
