There are certain movies that when I’m flipping through the channels and happen upon them, I just have to watch (at least for a few minutes). They’re not in any certain genre; some of them are award winners; others of them are, well, not. I’m not an old-movie buff, so they’re all from my lifetime.
Some of them are just good movies. You know the kind, the ones that make you feel something deep in your soul. Others remind me of a certain time in my life, a movie time capsule of sorts. They make me laugh or cry, or both! I like to call them my personal classics. Here they are in no particular order:
- The Shawshank Redemption
- The Lord of the Rings trilogy
- The Little Mermaid
- You’ve Got Mail
- The Matrix (only the first one!)
- Dazed and Confused
- A Few Good Men
- The Harry Potter movies (even though the books are so much better!)
- Billy Madison
- American Beauty
- The Hunger Games movies (see above about the books being better!)
- The Princess Bride
- Bring It On
What movies would be on your list?
#InkRipples is a monthly meme created by Katie L. Carroll, Mary Waibel, and Kai Strand. We pick a topic (June is all about movies), drop a ripple in the inkwell (i.e. write about it on our blogs), and see where the conversation goes. Be sure to check out Kai’s and Mary’s posts this month. We’d love to have you join in the conversation on your own blogs or on your social media page. Full details and each month’s topic can be found on my #InkRipples page.
