My Aloha Friday question this week is:
What are three of your favorite movies?
Even coming up with three is hard for me. I really had to ponder it for a bit. But here's what I've come up with:
Moulin Rouge ~ this was a no brainer. I can't imagine loving a movie more than I do this one. It has everything I would want in a movie... romance, music, fun, good acting, good story. It's a movie you either love or don't like. I love it.
Freedom Writers ~ based on a true story of a teacher who changes the lives of her low-income, high-risk students by believing in them and giving them the tools and opportunity to succeed. I'm inspired every time I watch it.
The Sound of Music ~ yes, an oldie, but a goodie. Part of the appeal here, I'm sure, is that it is a movie from my childhood and has a warm and fuzzy place in my heart. I'd say this movie, along with Mary Poppins, gave me my love for musicals and this movie is a great musical.
I usually don't watch movies more than once, so for me, one of the tests of a good movie is if I would want to see it a second, not to mention a third, fourth, or fifth time. The above movies pass this test and I have watched them many times.
Today's blessing is having two good friends and getting together every week. If there's a good movie out, we head to the theater (which I'll be doing today). When Christmas shopping needs to be taken care of, you'll find us in the mall. Sometimes it's just lunch, in which we can spend hours in a booth encouraging and supporting each other. I am so thankful for these two long-time friends.
