Once upon a time, I was a wannabe film snob. I am not ashamed because I did enjoy the artistic side of it all but I am sure some friends rolling their eyes now and then!
Scary movies are not my favorite but most other genres are enjoyable. When I was in college, I got really into noir film like Citizen Kane! But then, I started a new tradition which was to watch and wait for the Academy Award lists to come out so I can see which movies and people are being nominated in each category. There was one that is most important to me though.
“Best Motion Picture of the Year”!
They would range in genre of course but I loved watching every single one of them before the awards show. I loved being outside my comfort zone sometimes and finding new favorites, or even admiring the artistry of movies I didn’t love.
Some of the highlights have been everything from The Silence of the Lambs to Forest Gump. I also really like epic Roman films like Gladiator. With my son, we are just venturing into Marvel and Spiderman but it is funny because he will ask me if he has seen somethings from like Rescue Rangers (because of the new movie) and I will have to show him the cartoons from the 90’s!
Now, I may not do the same thing every year anymore but I do enjoy finding new movies to check out when I can. So I have a favor to ask…
What are some of your favorites movies? I can’t wait to hear from you and look forward to your recommendations!
