Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.
A Little Bit of Me Button

My dear friend from There’s a Book started a new meme based on the desire to learn more about her blogger friends and conversely have others learn more about her.  You know I am all about sharing (and even over-sharing), so I thought that this would be a great way to talk about me outside of books.

This week’s instructions are as follows:

Tell us all about your favorite movie and why. Can’t pick one? Give us your top five!

I always have difficulties picking any favorite movie for lists like this.  If I were being truly honest with myself, my favorite movie has to be 

Ace Ventura, Pet Detective

Jim and I saw Jim Carrey perform live on our first date, just after Ace Ventura came out in theaters, so I have a special place in my heart for all of his movies.  I have most of his movies memorized.  They just make me laugh.

Alternatively, this one has to make the list as well.

Gone With the Wind

My best friend and I used to spend hours reciting lines from this one in junior high and high school.  There is something about the costumes, the lush scenery, the timelessness of the movie that makes me want to watch it over and over again.

Because my taste in movies is just as eclectic as my taste in books, I can’t fail to mention another childhood favorite.

The Empire Strikes Back

Another movie to which I have all of the dialogue memorized.  I love the original three movies, but this one is by far my favorite.  It’s the snarkiest of the three, and I really like the fact that it does not end on a positive note. 

So, there you go.  I can’t say that these are my all-time favorite movies, but they certainly rank up among my favorites for which I will always have a special fondness.

Which movies make your list?
