What's Your Favorite Scary Movie?

Day Seven - Your Favorite Movies

So I guess the title of this post is a bit misleading as I'm not really talking about scary movies, but I can't help it.  I love to use Pop Culture references.  It's an obsession.
So I'm favorite movies in no particular order...

Dirty Dancing
My goodness.  Are there any words?  This movie is a life changer.  Once you watch it, you will never be the same.  Plain and simple.  It is one of those movies that I can watch and know every.single.line.  I can even close my eyes and tell you exactly what is going on.  You are kidding yourself if you think that while I'm writing this I'm not watching the final dance on YouTube because I totally am and so should you .  I'll never forgot the moment when I realized what Penny's "situation" was.  I could never figure out why Baby's dad was so freaked about the whole thing.  Then one day it all clicked and I had the major "ah-ha" moment.  Whatever.  It's still a fantabulous movie in my eyes.

Willy Wonka and Chocolate Factory
Not to be confused with that disasterous Johnny Depp crap.  Don't even get me started.  Who could not love this movie?  With the candy and the humor and the good story, it just makes for an all around good time.  And a great movie to quote to boot. 

Sorry, but this movie is iconic.  It's when we first were introduced to the awesomeness that is Paul Rudd and Britney Murphy was all awkward.  Again another great movie to quote and these girls will always be in style to me.

Sixteen Candles
Although I have not seen this movie in a very long time, it will always remain one of my favorites.  It gave hope to dorky girls everywhere that maybe, just maybe the cute guy in the class will fall for you.  It probably won't happen, but we can all dream, right?

This movie has so many things going for it, that I just have to put it in my favorites.  1)Two Sex and the City actors play roles (John Corbett and Bridget Moynahan) 2) Jeremy Piven. 3) It's set in New York 4) Serendipity is a truly awesome restaurant.  Given all these factors, plus a cute storyline, I can't NOT put it in my favorites. 

Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Like many movies I watch, this one gets better every time I watch it.  It just becomes funnier.  Which is hard to do.  You would think that the more you see something the less funny it would become, but the opposite holds true for this movie. This movie also stars one of my all time favorite actresses - Kristen Bell (more on her in an upcoming entry on TV shows).  Even though she is slightly bitchy in this movie, I still love her all the same.  

And I know that there are a million more and as soon as I see everyone else's lists I'm going to want to add those to my list too!


  1. I love love love Serendipity! I can't believe I left it off my list. I think I may have to watch it today. :) Oh AND! I totally agree with you on Charlie and the... Johnny Depp's version is totally wrong! The old one is so much better!

  2. I've got Forgetting Sarah Marshall on my list too-- it's hilarious! And Clueless, how could I have forgotten that one!

  3. LOVE Sixteen Candles, it was on my list too! One of the greatest movies ever made :)

  4. We were just talking about Clueless tonight at our young adult Bible study...I bet I have watched that movie at least 100 times!
