Day two and already I'm racking my brain into exhaustion. My favorite movie? What does that even mean?
Once upon a time, I would have said 'Lord of the Rings'. However, when I watch it now, there are certain parts I fast-forward through, just so I can get to what I call the 'good parts'. Is it still my favorite movie then?
These are the things that keep one up at night.
I asked my husband what his fave movie was, and he answered 'Hoosiers' without hesitation. Someone asks me, and I've got to really think about it!
But ultimately, I think I've got two.
"Pride and Prejudice" - Not the newest one with Keira Knightley, but the 1995 BBC TV mini-series with Colin Firth. Roughly six hours in length, I am captivated by the scenery and the costumes. Of course, all of the characters are well-played too. Some say there's too many shots of Mr. Darcy brooding (:D), but he is experiencing some serious inner turmoil - going against the norms of the time, by being in love with a woman beneath his station. I love Austen's book of the same name, and I feel this version captures the spirit of the book the best.
"The Gamers: Dorkness Rising" - Not a mainstream film, but one that I'll actually watch over and over. It's a light, comical film that depicts a group of people roleplaying a Dungeons and Dragons adventure. Because I play D & D too, there's a lot of references and jokes that I understand. I do love the nerd factor as well. And there's even a hint of romance, but nothing that overtakes the story.
