>I like movies. Not all movies mind you, but a variety of genres are represented on my favorite’s list.
I like classic movies made in the 1930s – 1960s.
I like animated features from the 1980s (An American Tale, etc.).
I’m drawn to epic movies with swords (King Arthur, Gladiator, Rob Roy, Braveheart, Kingdom of Heaven, etc.).
I fall for well written romantic comedies (Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail, While You Were Sleeping, How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days, etc.).
I like crying in gritty dramas (The Departed, Basketball Diaries, etc.).
I like cheering for the underdog in those cheesy kids movies (Camp Nowhere, The Mighty Ducks, The Sandlot, etc.).
I like going back with dramatic adaptations of literature (He Knew He Was Right, The Three Musketeers, The Last of the Mohicans, etc.).
I even like ‘blaming the Man’ on occasions (Glory, 1492, Roots, Changing Places).
This appreciation for movies began during my early childhood years. Two of my earliest memories as a child are me sitting in front of the television at three years old watching The Whiz and Star Wars (not at the same time though…).
I am not sure what fuels this interest, but I do know that this love affair is here to stay.
