Getting Personal #20: Movie Marathons, and Movies In General

I noticed that Young OFW liked my recent post on Elevation Church. Whenever someone new likes one of my posts or follows my blog (Thank you!), I always click on their name / handle / WordPress ID and check out their site.

Whilst visiting his blog, I found this post:

Reading his post made me realize that I have not done any sort of post about movies! So, thank you for the inspiration!

I would have never thought to put some of these movies together. I’m excited to carve out a few weekends to try some of these!

For me, out of the movies he listed, these are the ones I have seen:

  1. Forrest Gump
  2. The Shawshank Redemption
  3. Pulp Fiction
  4. 50 First Dates
  5. The Proposal
  6. The Wedding Singer
  7. The Prestige
  8. Inception
  9. A Beautiful Mind
  10. Saving Private Ryan
  11. Schindler’s List
  12. The Departed
  13. Dazed and Confused
  14. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
  15. The Breakfast Club
  16. Interstellar
  17. 2001: A Space Odyssey
  18. Sleepless in Seattle
  19. Pretty Woman
  20. Inglourious Basterds

I loved his take. Seeing his combinations makes me want to watch these 20 movies again, and try some of the ones I haven’t seen. Some of these listed here, I’ve only seen once.

I’ve always enjoyed watching movies. My parents bought a lot of the classic Disney movies on VHS. Mom and I would go to Blockbuster once or twice a month to rent movies. The now-demolished Movies 10 in Chesapeake was where I saw George of the Jungle, Hercules, Mulan, and others. Then, Harbour View Grande 16 opened in Suffolk. My dad and I would see the newest James Bond movies in the theaters, and watch the classic ones on cable on vacation.

Then, I fell in love with a professed movie-buff, who is now my husband. Movies are one of the biggest things that we have in common. We watch the trailers online and go out at least once a month, if not more than that.

We’re known to see the same movie multiple times – Star Wars: The Force Awakens three times within two weeks, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice twice in four days.

Plus, he has Netflix and Amazon Prime, so we fill a lot of our time, in general, with movies and documentaries.

I’m currently working on my own version of Movie Marathons, partially inspired by Young OFW’s post. Check back in the next week or so for my picks for the following:

  • Action
  • Adventure
  • Comedy
  • Crime & Gangster
  • Drama
  • Epics / Historical
  • Horror
  • Musicals / Dance
  • Science Fiction
  • War
  • Westerns

Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
