ten days. three films.

You know you are asking the girl who has no real favorites to choose favorites, right?  Sheesh, this is getting harder...

3. Cinderella Man.  I don’t own this movie yet, but I think about buying it quite often.  It tells such a beautiful story about the importance of family and love, and a man’s willingness to do what it takes to fight for that.  It’s humble, and leaves you cheering him on and weeping with his heartache.  Such a great film.


2. Despicable Me.  I’ve told you there is a small child living inside of me, right?  I love Disney Pixar films.  I think this one is my favorite...so far.  It makes me giggle, a lot.  I want a minion.  Just saying.


1. While You Were Sleeping.  This has been a consistent favorite for about 15 years now.  It never fails to make me laugh, and hope in real love.  I relate to the awkwardness of the main character and her desire to find love.  The supporting cast is a delight and it’s a movie you find me quoting on a regular basis.



(Honorable mentions...The Blind Side, The Help, Soul Surfer, To Save a Life, Lord of the Rings, Braveheart, Remember the Titans, Radio, Facing the Giants, Ever After, Penelope)

You're such an epic-story-based movie person. I love that. I'm a sensory-stimulation movie person--singing and dancing, great wardrobe, quotable lines...

I've never seen Cinderella Man, is that crazy??

Agreed w/While you were sleeping but wasn't too much into Despicable Me. :(
