Summer movies...

1. Grease (1978): I watched this classic constantly as a teen over the summer break!

2. Weekend at Bernie's (1989): Also a classic as a teen. How long can they get away with carrying around a dead guy??

3. Raising Arizona (1987): It's a classic anytime but it seems to be more of a summer classic in my house!

4. Seconhand Lions (2003): Just a feel good summer adventure!

Feature Presentation...
MONDAY MOVIE MEME
hosted by Molly of The Bumbles Blog.

This week pick your favorite film you've seen this year whether it came out this year or not. I don't know if I can just leave it at one...Hmmm.

Favorite movie in theater this year:
1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 7.2: This was an amazing end to a great series. I was literally blown away both emotionally and visually.

Favorite non-theater movie(s) seen this year:
1. The King's Speech (2010): Heart-warming, funny, smart. I absolutely loved this story.

2. 127 Hours (2010): Though visually a bit graphic, this story really inspired me. It made me think about survival and the will of the human spirit. Amazing.
