There are few things I enjoy more than a good movie. Here are some I never get tired of watching:
My mother forced our family to watch “Chariots of Fire” when I was a teenager. It was an excruciating experience, but something has changed since then because now it’s my favorite movie ever. This film is absolutely inspiring — and seems to get better with every viewing.
A daddy/daughter love story set against the canvas of time and space. Optimistic sci-fi with brains and heart. It doesn’t get much better than that. (Disclaimer: There’s apparently some brief strong language in this show, which is a shame. I was able to watch it with the objectionable language taken out.)
This fabulous movie about a rat who can cook convinced me that Pixar really can do anything.
I don’t like courtroom scenes in movies. They almost always strike me as inauthentic, but here’s one movie that doesn’t have that problem. Everything about “To Kill a Mockingbird” rings true.
OK, OK, so The Lord of the Rings movies are too violent, but they’re also fantastically rich and beautiful. For me, “Fellowship” is the most satisfying.
Go ahead and revoke my man card, but, hey, a good movie is a good movie.
I’m not going to argue that this is a great film, but it’s hard to top the thrill of seeing Jean-Luc Picard and my other childhood heroes on the big screen for the very first time.
If I were going to sit down and watch one Harry Potter movie just because, this would be the one.
Pretty much the best comedy ever.
