Let’s Start Again!
Happy New Year! Well, 2021 has left us and it’s time to begin that uphill climb into 2022.
How are you going to spend this new year? Any plans? Goals? Or resolutions (shudder)? I don’t make new year’s resolutions. To me, they are like promises that you can’t keep. But there are some things that I would like to do this year like read more, write more, work on my bucket and to-do lists.
But today, I want to talk about movies. One of my favorite movies is “The Equalizer” starring Denzel Washington and in the movie, he tells the young girl at the diner about a list of 100 books you should read before you die. I love to read. Give me a good old-fashioned paperback novel and I’ll read it cover to cover, but not everyone likes to read. So, I thought we could come up with 100 movies to watch. I’ll share some of my favorites with you and I would love for you to share some of yours with me.
Ready? Here goes. (And these are not in any particular order.)
Driving Miss Daisy
The Proposal (Betty White was awesome in this. May she rest in peace.)
Oh, God starring George Burns
Lord of The Rings (Loved all three)
The Avengers (I prefer the ones where they work as a team but the individual movies are okay. Captain America, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, etc.)
Remember the Titans
And if you’re a Stephen King fan, Shawshank Redemption, and The Green Mile.
Tom Hanks fan? Forrest Gump, Turner and Hooch, Castaway, Sully and the list goes on.
If you haven’t guessed by now, I’m a big fan of Denzel Washington and Tom Hanks.
And last but not least,
The Bucket list. Did you know that they filmed the speedway scene right here in my hometown?
Well, that’s enough to get you started. If there’s a movie you think I might like, leave me a comment.
And if you prefer to read instead of watching a movie just google, 100 books to read before you die.
I’ve checked out some of the lists and most of the books I agree with and then there are some that I haven’t a clue as to why they’d be on the list. But to each his own.
Okay, that’s it for now.
Hugs till next time
