What films can I watch over and over? “Casablanca,” “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” and “Back to the Future.”
My favorite movie lines?
“Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn,” (“Gone With The Wind”)
“I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore,” (“Network”)
“There’s no crying in baseball.” (“A League of Their Own”)
And, of course, “Wait a minute, Doc. Are you telling me you built a time machine… out of a DeLorean?”
My least favorite film? Even though it won the Academy Award for Best Picture, I did not enjoy “American Beauty”… although it made a great point I’ve never forgotten.
When the ‘actor who shall not be named because he is accused of doing really bad things’ is talking to Annette Bening and says: “This isn’t life, it’s just stuff. And it’s become more important to you than living. Well, honey, that’s just nuts.”
That’s something I continually remind myself as I look around the house we’ve lived in since the year that film came out . Downsizing coming soon to a theater near you.
