Yesterday I shared the first part of the 5 things challenge. If you missed that post, you can find it here.
I was inspired to do this post by Melanie, author of Sparks From a Combustible Mind. I put my own twist on this challenge and decided to do 5 of each category:
- 5 Books
- 5 Movies
- 5 Songs
Yesterday’s topic was books, so today’s topic is movies.
Thank you, Melanie, for the inspiration!!
5 Movies You Should Watch If You Want To Know Me Better
- When Harry Met Sally (1989)
I have mentioned this movie a few times now. It is one of my all time favorites. I am very much like Sally. There is a quote at the end of the movie where Harry says he loves that it takes her an hour and a half just to order a sandwich. I chuckle every time, because sometimes I can be that indecisive. You will also get a feel for my sense of humor in this film. I have seen this movie a hundred times, and I laugh at the “Paprikash” scene every. single. time. Of course, it’s a romantic comedy, so I feel all warm and gushy every time I watch it.
Gahh! I’m gushing all over again, this quote gets me every time! You might need to come mop me up, because I’ve melted into a puddle! ❤
2. Into The Wild
There are pieces of me all throughout this movie. It speaks to me on so many levels. First of all, the scenery has my adventurous spirit running wild! I am yearning to travel and go on a long road trip!
Secondly, the writing. Oh my gosh, I have never seen a movie with so many wonderful and inspiring quotes! The writing is absolutely phenomenal.
Lastly, the soundtrack. There isn’t one song on this soundtrack that I don’t like!
There were so many awesome quotes it was hard to narrow it down, but I am longing to see a new horizon!
3. Mr. Smith Goes To Washington
I wrote a post about this movie. I fell in love with it, but I pretty much am Mr. Smith. He refuses to give up, and even passes out at one point during the film, because he refuses to give up on what he believes in, and loses so much sleep while fighting for his beliefs. He doesn’t care if other people think he’s crazy, as long as he does what he believes to be the right thing, nothing is going to stop him. I am very much like that. Once I set my sights on something, you’d be hard pressed to stop me from achieving it. Especially if it’s something I’m passionate about and truly believe in! This is a must watch film, and I absolutely adore Jimmy Stewart.
It is the lost causes I go to bat for. This movie was made in 1939 and it is still very relevant today. We could all learn something from this movie.
4. Young Frankenstein
I wracked my brain trying to think of a comedy that best describes my humor, and I kept coming back to this one. Oh my gosh, I LOVE this movie!! Gene Wilder is so funny, and there’s just so much chaos and different kinds of humor. It is another movie that makes me laugh, no matter how many times I’ve seen it!
Bahahaha!!! There is so many funny quotable’s in this movie!!
5. Across The Universe
This is another one of my all time favorite films! I am a HUGE Beatles fan. I’ve loved them longer than I can remember.
The songs of the Beatles provide the framework for this musical tale, making for stunning, imaginative imagery, and a delightful soundtrack. Follow Jude as he sets sail for American from Britain, in search of his father. He meets Max, and his sister Lucy, as well as a few other rather eccentric characters.
Jude & Lucy develop feeling for one another, but their relationship is threatened by the social complications that accompany the Vietnam war.
I love this movie so much!! If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. I am now longing to see it again!!
There you have it. The 5 movies that have pieces of me hidden throughout the story lines, quotes, humor, and soundtrack.
Stay tuned tomorrow for the 5 songs you should listen to if you want to get to know me better.
Have you seen any of these movies? What are your opinions? What movies should I watch to get a better understanding of who you are?
Love & life lessons,
