Actually, it's been fun. I love to watch movies. I like to watch them on Sunday afternoons, while the sun is shining through the bedroom window, on top of blankets and sheets that are fresh from the laundry. Of course, I inevitably fall asleep.
I have a confession to make. I watch movies, all movies, with the subtitles turned on. I don't know. When I watch movies, sometimes I walk away feeling like I'm missing a big chunk of the story. (I usually am. I daydream a lot.) With subtitles, I never feel like that.
Here's a list, with some of my rambling thoughts thrown in:
All Quiet on the Western Front (Started this, but haven't finished it. It's really
Laurence Olivier's Hamlet
All the King's Men
The Greatest Show on Earth
Around the World in 80 Days
Lawrence of Arabia
In the Heat of the Night
The French Connection
The Godfather (I watched this movie several years ago when I was too young to understand it. I just finished watching it again and I absolutely loved it. However, it's really too bad Mr. Brando couldn't keep his looks.)
The Godfather, part II
The Deer Hunter
Chariots of Fire
Out of Africa
The Last Emperor
Driving Miss Daisy
Dances With Wolves
Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (I haven't watched this one yet, but what really bugs me is that it's the third in a trilogy and I haven't seen any of them. I can't watch the third without having watched the first two! And I really have no interest in watching any of them.)
I'm curious. Any of these movies your favorite? Any that you've seen a hundred times? Tell me you love Rocky. That'll make me feel better about eventually watching it.
