Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Movies I Could Watch Again and Again...

1. The Lord of the Rings--any or all of them.

I was originally a Legolas fan, but I've since switched to Aragorn. Although Eomer is a close second. Funny story: my mother-in-law had taken to wearing those hair pieces (like ponytails) when she had short hair. Well, my husband thought they were ridiculous and looked like the horse hair helmets of the Rohirrin from the movie. So, one day she's wearing it, and he says to her, "How fare things in the Riddermark?" She totally didn't get it, but I couldn't stop laughing.

2. Star Wars--the original trilogy

Somehow, I just can't relate to any of the new characters.

3. Serendipity

4. Ghostbusters
My dad laughs uproariously at "That's a big Twinkie," but I've never really gotten it.

5. Meet the Parents
Gotta love Ben Stiller.

6. Simon Burch
I cry everytime. Perfect cast.

7. Gigi
A favorite since my junior high days. I still occasionally quote the movie.

8. Freaky Friday
I have the new version with Lyndsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis.

9. Rear Window
I could almost fill the whole list with Hitchcock movies...

10. North by Northwest

11. Gladiator

12. The Saint
Val Kilmer and Elisabeth Shue
One day I'll need to watch the original TV episodes with Roger Moore.

13. Emma
So many good lines! Loved Gwenyth Paltrow as Emma.

Blogger's not uploading my photos, so I'll post without 'em.

I love Meet the Parents. The scene on the plane with the flight attendant with the 'sticks in her hair', that cracks me up every time!
