Michael over at It’s Your Money is asking money bloggers to write about their favorite movies so here are mine:
It doesn’t matter what else is on the TV or if I catch the movie halfway through – I end up watching it. Andy could have let the fact that he was wrongfully accused of his wife’s murder get to him, but he didn’t. He had hope and he didn’t give up.
2.) Walk the Line
Johnny Cash is one of my favorite artists. I never really attach myself to celebrities but when I heard that Johnny had died, I burst out in tears right in front of my boss at the time. His music was truly from the heart. I enjoyed this movie because of the music and to see the ups and downs of his life.
3.) Forrest Gump
Good ole Forrest Gump. If there was ever a fictional character I would like to meet it would be him. I don’t care if we only talk about the weather…he gives me the feeling that everything is going to be alright.
4.) The Green Mile
John Coffey was wrongfully accused of murder and was sentenced to death row. Even with facing execution, he still helped others with an incredible gift of healing. The tears flow freely every time I watch this movie.
“One of these movies doesn’t belong here…” (sing to a Sesame Street tune) LOL. While A Night at the Roxbury is a comedy and my other favorites are drama, there is still something very inspirational to me about this movie (and funny too). Doug and Steve Butabi don’t let go of their dreams.
There’s my five. Anyone care to share yours (or comment on mine)?
