My favorite movies....

I rarely watch movies. But when I do, I am one of those people who can watch the same movie more than once. I should keep track how many times I watch one I like. I may make it into the Guiness Book of World Records. I thought I would share my favorites that I can watch over and over. 

American President. My favorite line in this one is at the end when he says "It turns out I have a rose garden."

Sweet Home Alabama. I have so many favorite parts but I just when the line "What do you want to marry me for?" And it goes without saying that I love the music. 

Steel Magnolias. There isn't a scene in this movie I don't love. It's one of my favorites and I cry every time I watch it. 

We are Marshall. This move reaches me way deep down in my soul. I am from Barboursville, WV. It's a little town on the outskirts of Huntington, the home of Marshall University. We were in the floor playing Bingo. I was 13 and they broke into whatever we were watching to announce the plain crash. Everyone was stunned. It took the town a long time to recover from the devastation. On one of my trips back home, I went to the cemetery where the monument is and where some of the departed was buried. Needless to say, since I know the story well, I cry through the entire movie just about. But I still love watching it. 

Grease. This is one of those movies that is just fun to watch. I could watch it over and over. As a matter of fact, I do. 

Shag. With my love of the beach, it goes without saying that I love this movie. Makes me want to learn to shag.

Apollo 13. This one is just one of the best movies ever made. I love when "Gene" says: With all due respect, sir, I believe this is gonna be our finest hour.


Guarding Tess. This is just one of those movies that I can watch at any time. If I am flipping channels and there is 10 minutes left of this movie, I will watch it. 

Sweet Dreams. I just love Patsy Cline so it stands to reason I love the movie about her life. 

Coal Miner's Daughter. I love Loretta Lynn. This was one of my favorite songs of hers. And being a coal miner's granddaughter, I just love this movie.

I love Sweet Home Alabama; Steel Magnolias; We ARe Marshall; Apollo 13 and Coal Miner's Daughter and Sweet Dreams. Guarding Tess is also good. Grease is okay. Haven't seen Shag, or American President. Need to put those on my list!
