Ummm, I'm not a very movie person. I don't see lots of them, don't watch lots of TV, I'm more about words on a page than pictures on a screen.
And I'm a hopeless romantic when it comes to movies. I'm a bit more nuanced when it comes to books, but I like romantic movies, teary movies, but movies where the guy gets the girl in the end.
My favourite movie might be Gone With the Wind. It was for a long time. I love it. I love Rhett Butler. He's so damn sexy. And I love that he's pretty Dom and the clothes are gorgeous and there's so much undercurrent about morals and expectations and ... yeah. I love the interaction between the two of them, the tension, her trying to boss him around, his refusal to be bossed. Growing up, I think that Rhett/Clark was my perfect man, smart, bossy, successful, older and oh so sexy. That might be my favourite movie. And I know it doesn't really seem like it, but I've always been convinced that it does eventually end happily. He comes back to her, because he can't stay away, and she's learned her lesson, works at making it work and they live happily ever after. Could happen, right?
I also love Star Wars. It has adventure. Technology. Ideology. Some comedy. Good against evil. A bit of love interest. She says, "I love you." He says, "I know". Yes of course it was always Han Solo. It kind of shocks me that there could have been any question there of choosing Luke over Han. Han had that bad boy thing going on. Luke was ... well more like your brother right? So no big surprise when that turned out to be the case. And really, anything else that Harrison Ford has ever been in... yum.
Or Pretty Woman. Yes, so politically incorrect in so many ways. Happy, sad, unrealistic, great music that makes me happy. Of course I know that it's not that simple and that life as a hooker isn't pretty. But I just love the love story in it. Does it matter that she starts off as a hooker? Maybe not, I think it's a Cinderella story with a great shopping scene in it.And it's funny. And the guy gets the girl in the end. Or is it the girl getting the guy?
So those are my movie picks. What do you mean I was supposed to pick one? I don't think it said I had to just pick ONE did it? No way. And btw, they might be different picks on different days. Maybe. Although nothing else comes to mind. Yeah, I know they're all old. Hey, do you notice they all have older men in them? Coincidence? Probably not.
