There’s a great new meme over at There’s a Book, and in this weekly event, we share “bits and pieces” of our real selves.
Like this week, we’re telling about our favorite movies.
Now there are many, many movies that I love, and, like many of my obsessions, I collect compulsively. I have huge DVD shelves that my son built, going from floor to ceiling, for the length of the hallway.
So believe me when I say that it’s hard to choose. However, when I think about the movies that I’ve watched SO many times that I practically know the dialogue…well, that narrows it down.
First, we have When Harry Met Sally, starring Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal.
Doesn’t the cover here take you back? If you liked this movie, of course! But I so enjoyed the romantic premise of people becoming friends, the passage of time, and then the gradual change from friendship to romance.
Then, for a darker look, here’s another one I can’t seem to get enough of, even though I know every scary moment before it gets here. Fatal Attraction, with Glenn Close and Michael Douglas, is one of those “cautionary tales” about the consequences of our actions that can morph into something dark and disturbing.
Okay, this reminiscing makes me want to grab these from the shelves and enjoy a movie marathon.
How about you? What are your favorites? I hope you’ll stop by and tell us about them.
