my favorite movies

way back when i used to work at a video store. one of the fun parts was choosing the movie to play in the overhead television. i used to have theme days ie, romantic comedies, disaster flicks, sci-fi... and then the shift would change and if dani came in she would play titanic over and over again... how i now hate that movie!

so... just for fun, here are some of my favorite movies. in no particular order

the princess bride
finding nemo

hotel rwanda
the man of la mancha (with peter o'toole and sophia loren)
dark water (the orignal japanese version, not the american one)
the american president
the ring

dead man walking
the holy grail
mulan
buffy the vampire slayer

sometimes lines from my favorite movies wind up in sermons or newsletter articles i write.
finding nemo, the fellowship of the ring, and another monty python favorite the life of brian have all made it as sermon illustrations.

the movie i am most looking forward to
the lion the witch and the wardrobe (remember reading those books as children?)

and i've heard rumours that there will be a new buffy the vampire movie out at sme point. can i just say... buffy was and is my favorite all time tv show (yes, even more than M*A*S*H)

I'm re-reading the Chronicles of Narnia (can't wait for the movie) and it's interesting to pick up on all the themes of Christianity that I missed as a child. It's doubly interesting as I am in a Jewish Studies class with an eye towards converting.

And Buffy the Vampire Slayer was my all-time favorite show, too. Angel as well (Smile Time, anyone?)! Any luck in getting the Pobble interested? I've always thought she'd enjoy it.

Y'all are killing me. Better than MASH? And for the record, I have indeed seen one episode of Buffy and one episode of Angel so at least I know they exist. Yes, I'm a t.v. goob ~ it's part of my charm.

Regarding the MASH test: You tested out as Colonel Potter - did you like him better than Colonel Blake?

I tested as B.J. Hunnicutt, which disappointed me, because I'm much more of a fan of Trapper John. I liked MASH best during the Colonel Blake, Trapper John years.
