Anyway, I'm in the midst of a poem for Poetry Thursday. In the meantime, I thought I'd post a question to "keep things whole." (Yes, that's a reference to the Mark Strand poem.)
Here's the Q. of the day:
If you're flipping channels on television, what movie(s) do you stop to watch no matter what?
My top three:
1. Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan
How can you not watch a movie with lines like, "Revenge is a dish best served cold"?
Have you seen it lately ... it scares the bejesus of me yet I'll still watch it.
I think it's the last movie where Robert Redford looks rugged and cool, not old and holding onto his youth with both hands, as he does now. Also, awesome cast: River Phoenix, Sidney Portier, Mary McDonnell, etc.
Yeah, I could have said Goodfellas or All the President's Men, but my picks I classify as true guilty pleasures. Also, my first job was as a concessionist at a movie theater ("Would you like butter flavoring with your popcorn?") so my love of movies runs deep.
Now it's your turn. What movie(s) do you break for no mater what?
