Day 7: Favorite Movies
I don't watch a lot of television, and rarely go to movies. So there really are no recent films on this list. But these are movies I love to watch over and over; they never get tiresome for me.
This is an obscure one, made by Claymation genius Wil Vinton. I love its quirkiness, and it was the first time I was exposed to Twain's less-well-known stories, such as the Diaries of Adam and Eve. Well worth tracking down.
Lordy, Christopher Reeve was gorgeous. The first movie was so campy, it's tremendously fun to watch. The second was more fun, but it went downhill with Richard Pryor in the third.
Again, a movie I loved to watch whenever it came on TV. I loved the line Henry Fonda gives near the end of the movie: "It's not going to bed with a guy that proves you love him; it's getting up with him every morning and dealing with the kids, the house, the mortgage..." Truer words were never spoken.
I'm sure I'm leaving out a great many movies (the original TRON; Monty Python and the Holy Grail...). I love the older movies, and lean heavily towards comedy and light-hearted escapism. So sue me.
