Last night a couple friends and I went to our cute little downtown movie theater – The Coed Cinema. You won’t find reclining seats or seats with rumbling built into them but there is something oh so nice about patronizing our little hometown cinema. They work hard to bring great movies to town and they have a great concession stand so that is all that matters to me.
We saw “Where the Crawdads Sing” which is a popular book by the same name written by Delia Owens. It is a popular book club choice and I really did love the book. Which made me a little nervous to see the movie. So often the movie versions of books disappoint me. They change too much of the story to make it good for the big screen and take too many liberties. But this movie stayed pretty true to the book story line and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Parts were difficult to watch but I also remember cringing when I read certain parts of the book so I guess that is part of the beauty of the story.
It got me to thinking about some of my favorite movies that I have watched over the years. Here is a random list of 10 of my favorites in no particular order and just off the top of my head.
The Big Chill
The Breakfast Club
The Green Mile
The Sound of Music
Top Gun (both of them)
What movies top your list? I would love to read those in the comment section so please Comment for a Cause – The Augustine Literacy Project.
