MV5BNDUwMjAxNTU1MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMzg4NzMxMDE@._V1_SX640_SY720_For the past couple of months my friends and I have been moving through the top ten greatest films of all time. We polished off five films so far and now have five to go. I was especially excited for this pair of films, and if I’m being totally honest I was really just over the moon to have an excuse to watch Gone With The Wind again. It’s one of my favorite books and favorite films.

Gone With The Wind is all about discovering what really matters to you, at the end Scarlet may not have been very good at showing people she loved them when it mattered most but what she did discover was her deep love and connection with her family home, to Tara. On the surface she is just a silly girl but deep down she loved her father, she protected her family and made sure they all came through the war alive and fed. I would highly recommend you watch this film but if you do, do it with an open mind, except where Prissy is concerned you can hate the silly little thing that she is, her voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard.

Singing_in_the_rain_posterSingin’ In The Rain….well some parts of this film were really fun and finally seeing where the song Good Morning and Singin’ in the Rain came from was part of what made this movie fun. The dance scenes got a bit drawn out but overall an enjoyable film. Also, if you happen to know what modern movie or television show where the actors tip over the back of the couch please let me know, my friends an I searched online and couldn’t find where we know that from!
