I was tagged by a friend at Facebook! It used to be 15 books in 15 minutes. I tell you, I could remember more than 20 books at a click of a finger but movies? I have my favorites, some of which I used to watch a number of times but I could not honestly recall 15 movies in a span of 15 minutes. There are other movie titles though that would always make me smile every time and wish I could watch them all over again. Old favorites, love stories that I liked, some feel-good movies that would always linger. Back in high school, I was invited by a neighbor to watch a movie presentation for their film review. That’s where I encountered Sidney Poitier in a classic movie called To Sir With Love.
In fact, I have a copy of a video CD which I bought years ago and I’ve watched it several times since then. I just love Sidney Poitier in this movie. Don’t you just feel nostalgic hearing this song again? A big thank you for all the teachers who have molded the youth and still continue doing it until now.
And this is how I remember it was sung in the movie,
Another movie that left an impact in my young life is an all time favorite, The Sound of Music. I could not count the times I have repeatedly watched this film and every time, it never fails to give me the thrill. Don’t you just love Christopher Plummer singing Edelweiss and Julie Andrews dancing and singing her way in the hills of Austria?
The Promise was a book written by Danielle Steel which was made into a movie . I remember Michael , a wealthy heir and Nancy, a poor and struggling artist and how they were separated by a tragic accident. How they made a promise and kept it in the end despite all the odds. Certainly a tear-jerker but I love the twists and turns of the story. It’s the only Danielle Steel book that is so vivid in my mind after all these years. More than the book, the song itself is very touching.
I guess, I Am Sam is the best movie that I have seen so far. Sean Penn was at his best here and so was Dakota Fanning. Tears just flowed and laughter was not far behind while I was watching this great movie about a fierce love of a father to her daughter.
See,my knowledge of movies and my sense or recall on what I have watched are quite nil. So you think you can dance? Give me a book anytime or some music videos to boot and I’ll sing along with you.
