Movie Library



I haven't watched many movies lately. It's a cold, overcast day outside... and I saw Billy Crystal talking about the 25th anniversary of The Princess Bride last night... so I decided to pull out The Princess Bride and watch it at least once today. To my horror, when I opened up my movie cabinet, everything was out of order! Not sure how that happened... but now that I've rectified the situation, I'm wondering... what does your movie library say about you? Me? I think mine says I like happy endings. Most of the time. Here's my library... what movie(s) should I add?

A Mighty Wind
Alex & Emma
The Day After Tomorrow
Down With Love

Okay maybe that also says I'm silly, I like to laugh, and I like a little bit of adventure every once in a while (but let's not get crazy). I also have a bunch of VHS tapes (yes, still)... and I know for sure The Sound of Music and My Fair Lady are among them. So, yes, I like musicals too. And I do have required-watching for all puppy dogs everywhere: Puppy Bowl and Meerkat Manor.

There's enough happy in this list to keep me going for a while... even if I just think about these movies and don't even watch them! What movie(s) make you happy just thinking about them?

PS - I put Love Actually on this list because it's my favorite movie and I know I have it... somewhere. Have I loaned it to someone? If you have my copy of Love Actually, holler!
