Our “Favorite” Movie Of All Time

11 Jul

1414316877-goonies-oThe regular trio of friends that have been doing the movie nights off of crazy lists of movies (listed at the bottom) decided to take a break from the unknown list of movies to indulge in and share one each of our “favorite” movies.

Personally I don’t have a “favorite” movie, I am a movie fanatic, I could never pick just one….maybe one from every genre and year…maybe then I could.

So for Kelsey her favorite movie of all time was The Goonies. A fantastic film from 1985; a true adventure complete with pirates, treasure, danger and friendship.

When this movie first came out we all drove to Myrtle Beach for vacation and she went through the whole movie on the way down and we all sat there listening like she was reading a book.

Funny enough Jamie’s favorite movie is a modern take on the movie I chose as my “favorite”. Some Like It Hot is from 1959 and starring Marilyn MonroeTony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. In this film its the men who dress up as women to hide after witnessing the Valentines Day Massacre.

Some_Like_It_Hot_posterIf you’ve never seen any of these movies I highly recommend them all; they’re funny, the kind of funny that transcends time and spans decades of great films. It’s interesting because these movies really say a lot about each of our personalities.

For Kelsey she chose a movie about sticking with your friends and siblings even when they decide to run into a condemned old building with bank robbers, and then to march forward in search of a hidden treasure that could save their hometown.

Jamie chose a movie about female strength and perseverance, and going after what matters most. It’s also about backing up your sibling, which she does fiercely, and true friendship.

And for me I chose a classic film with a basic historical theme (spinning off from the real Valentines Day Massacre) love, friendship, and marching on after a setback.

The first crazy list, the top 10 greatest movies of all time:

1. “Citizen Kane,” 1941
2. “The Godfather,” 1972 
3. “Casablanca,” 1942
4. “Raging Bull,” 1980
5. “Singin’ in the Rain,” 1952
6. “Gone With the Wind,” 1939
7. “Lawrence of Arabia,” 1962
8. “Schindler’s List,” 1993
9. “Vertigo,” 1958
10. “The Wizard of Oz,” 1939
