Favorite Movies I Never Tire of Watching

So busy finishing (yes – finishing!!!) the edits of Book 4, I didn't have much time to work on this blog. I'll still give the final ten pages another look on Thursday, but I think the story is solid – and that's what matters the most.

Anyway, I looked through our stash of DVDs (of which you can see from this picture taken last year – the collection has grown a little since and doesn't include all the John Wayne movies my husband has in an identical case) and wrote down the ones I could watch over and over and over. Well, I could probably watch them all over, but would need a year or two between watches. Not this list. If I'm flipping through the television channels and run across one of these movies, I'll stop and watch it. That's how much I like these.

Here they are, in alphabetical order – my favorite movies I never tire of watching:

  • American President
  • Back to the Future
  • Beetlejuice
  • The Birds
  • Bringing Up Baby
  • Bull Durham
  • Dave
  • Die Hard
  • Ferris Bueller's Day Off
  • Galaxy Quest
  • Raiders of the Lost Ark
  • It's a Wonderful Life
  • Ladyhawke
  • A League of Their Own
  • Love, Actually
  • Major League
  • Music & Lyrics
  • Notting Hill
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Pretty Woman
  • Romancing the Stone
  • Sleepless in Seattle
  • Sound of Music
  • Star Trek – The Voyage Home
  • To Kill a Mockingbird
  • While You Were Sleeping
  • Young Frankenstein

Have I hit any of your favorites? Or are you like my dad – watch a movie once and then forget about it?

And if there's a movie here you've never heard about, tell me. I'll then tell you why you should watch it!

Nope, I know them all. Got some good ones on there.

Some of those I've seen, some not.

Big Congrats on working so hard. Very very cool.

Happy Writing.

A lot of these are on my list, too - although I'm more a 'Star Trek: Wrath of Khan' repeater. And where you've got a lot of baseball movies, I've got a lot of football movies. (Unnecessary Roughness, The Replacements... that sort of thing.) Although, I could watch A League of Their Own over and over.

Thanks, Ivy! I'll be even happier when I finally send my project out to my crit partners!

B.E. - I like the football movies, too, and we own the ones you listed, but they're more of my husband's favorites. Of course, if he's watching one, I will tend to sit down and watch with him.

Thirteen on your list would be on mine as well. One that would be near the top is Field of Dreams! :)
