If you could experience one movie over again for the first time, which one would it be and why?
One of the blogs I follow, Disney In Your Day, is reviewing different Disney movies (because I guess she’s seen them all?! That’s a commitment!) and she recently reviewed Pocahontas. This is particularly timely for me because I am showing it to Wee One for the first time.
Despite my better judgement, I love the Pocahontas.
I just saw the newest Beauty and the Beast and it was one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time. (Spoiler alert.)
To be fair, the original Beauty and the Beast is probably my favorite of all the Disney movies. When I saw it (I was a sophomore in high school) I was studying French – we actually watched it in French in French class, if that makes sense – and that fall, I broke up with a boy that I didn’t really like, but I was still lonely and a little depressed, so I felt like Beast. When he roared, it was like a roar I would… roar. At one point when he said, “It’s hopeless.” That’s how I really felt. (Ah… high school.)
No, not the that one.
Living at Casa In-Laws means the TV is on a lot, which wouldn’t be my preference, but we go with it. They like to watch Hallmark seasonal movies and I can’t even be mad. They’re formulaic movies, but its a formula that works, and I don’t mind it playing in front if Wee One.
But they are obviously ‘Christmas Movies,’ and today I want to talk about Christmas movies that aren’t really Christmas movies. They are the ones I (and others) associate with Christmas.
Question of the Day: You’re stranded on a deserted island with a TV, five movies, and five complete TV series. Which ones do you bring, and why?
I have never been a big movie buff – when I was a kid, I was only allowed to watch one hour of TV a week.
You read that right.
So I didn’t watch a lot of movies, and since I was in a very formative phase of my life in the 90’s, the ones I did see made an impact. This week’s Top 10 is the Early Years countdown, listing the movies from when I was starting to building memories and friendships, some of which I, luckily, still have today.
Every now and again, we have one experience that is either awful or wonderful, and then have a completely opposite experience the second time. I’ve had that several times of flipping my opinion of something pretty suddenly, and this Top Ten Tuesday is going to focus on that.
