T^2: ????

Dunno where Jenn is and it's her turn to come up with a question but since she's not around and there's no question waiting for me to answer... Here's an impromptu Thursday Talk question. Hopefully she'll get a chance to post her answer soon!

M: With the impending snowstorm -- if you were stuck at home with only one movie to watch over and over again, what would it be? (IOW, what movie can you watch over and over again and not get sick of. I guess trilogies allowed.)

M: Sliding Doors. I truly think I could watch it over and over again. There are other movies I considered, but bottom line, I need it to be a happy (and emotionally satisfying) movie/ending without a single cheesy/corny/cringe-worthy scene in it. And happy movies are very often accompanied with at least one cringe-worthy scene. So Sliding Doors. Plus, I love Scottish accents! (The guy is Scottish, right?)

J: Yikes, sorry I dropped the ball this week. Thanks for taking over, Mira! I think my answer would be Little Women with Winona Ryder. It's kind of a strange answer because I don't know that I'd actually list it as one of my all-time favorite movies but I find it really comforting to watch. It kind of takes me through a whole range of emotions, with moments that make me laugh, cry, yell at the screen...I've already watched it countless times and honestly, writing this is kind of making me want to watch it again!

hahaha. did you say trilogies are allowed because you knew i'd say Lord of the Rings? it probably is my true answer, but since i consider that kind of a cheating answer even if you don't, i won't choose it. the problem is, for me, this is truly a 5-way tie (to include LOTR). that's a cop-out answer, so i'm stuck between a cheater and a cop-out. i'll just pick one...and i won't choose the classic one on my list...so....i'm going to choose the one of those five that i've watched most recently: "Waking Ned Devine." i love this movie. it's funny, it's touching, it's not only about ordinary people but they all look like ordinary people. it's quirky, has gorgeous scenery, good use of local music (love "the parting glass" during the closing credits. i get goosebumps), and just a great, great, fabulous great, great ending.

Hm I've never watching Waking Ned Devine. I guess I have to add it to my Netflix queue!
