30 Day Challenge - Day 24

A posting 2 days in a row!  Woohoo!  I'm on a roll!

Today's question is what is my favorite movie, and why?

This is hard, because I actually have a lot of movies that I really like.  I know, I don't watch much TV, but I do watch movies...at least old movies.  Honestly, though, anything with John Wayne in it is great.

One of my favorites is McClintock! with John Wayne.  I don't really even need to watch it anymore, because I have seen it so many times.  I like older movies like that because its 100% safe to watch them with your kids! 
"You women are always raising hell about one things when it's something else you're really sore about.  Don't you think it's about time you told me what put the burr under your saddle about me?"

Arsenic in Old Lace is another I could watch over and over again.  Its just hilarious!
"Look, I probably should have told you this before, but you see...well...insanity runs in my family...it practically gallops!"

Gone With the Wind.  I can imagine myself in that movie.  Except, I would be in Texas.  And not wealthy. 
"It will come to you, this love of the land.  There's no gettin' away from it if you're Irish."  
"No, I don't think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly.  That's what's wrong with you!  You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how."

Dazed and Confused is one of my go-to movies when the kids aren't around.  I think I like it mainly for the soundtrack, but that alone is worth it.  Plus, it has Matthew McConnaughey in it.  (I know, yesterday I made my case about not idolizing movie stars.  I don't idolize him, but I will say that God really made him easy on the eyes.)  
"I'm letting you have shotgun. But I want you to know it's because only 'cuz I'm goin' inside."

Breakfast at Tiffany's.  Sure, Audrey's character is a call-girl, and she loves cats.  Other than those two things, it makes for a great love story! 
"It should take you exactly four seconds to cross from here to that door.  I'll give you two."  
"As Miss Golightly was saying before she was most rudely interrupted..."

So what is your favorite movie?  I'm sure if I thought a little more I could come up with a few more, but I will limit my one favorite movie to only five. Ha!

Be blessed today everyone!

  1. My favorite movie used to be Jane Eyer (1943 version), but "The Notebook" replaced it.



I enjoy reading every single comment I get, and make every effort to respond to each one...as well as return the favor! I do allow anonymous comments. But, if you use anonymity to hide behind cowardly attacks on my faith or anything else, it will be deleted. Also, if your comment is lewd, vulgar, and full of potty mouth words, I will delete it. Thank you!
