Movies are like an expensive form of Therapy for me ~ Tim Burton

Today's post brought to you by NaBloPoMo's Writing Prompt of the Day.

Buuut first, CAN YOU BELIEVE ITS JULY?! I'm so stoked! Because July better be better than June dammit, or I'm outa here. (sounds like such fightin' words until I start to think about what I would even DO.. go get August to kick out July? oh bah.)

On to the prompt..

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE?

This is kind of a hard one for me. I have 2 favorite movies. One classic, and one modern.

Breakfast at Tiffany's



I love Breakfast at Tiffany's, for its classic humor, and wit. Its the best! But I AM an Audrey Hepburn obsessed person, so really who can be that surprised that I love the song Moon River, and seriously thought about naming Oliver, "Cat"? (his name is Oliver, but his middle name is Cat, if you wondered).



and..

The Pursuit of Happyness



I love Will Smith. But I love this movie SO much! Everytime I watch it, I cry. Especially during that bathroom scene. Its a beautiful story though, it shows so much courage and determination. I can't imagine being that poor, and that helpless, but I think we all are really just a few weeks shy of being just that destitute. What's amazing to me is how he really did the whole "pull up by your boot straps" thing, and really got himself, and his child into a newer, better life - so inspiring.

Now I want to go watch both of these!

What's YOUR favorite movie(s)?

hmm I have never seen Persuit of Happiness. I heard it was really depressing so i never took the chance.. Maybe i will watch it!

The Pursuit of Happyness is to sad for multiple viewings. I know the end brings it all around.. but that Bathroom scene just KILLS me. Amazing movie though. Will Smith is the man.

Personal favorites:
Pineapple Express. The best stoner action comedy ever. Well.. it's probably the only one, but still.

And Borat. Nothing has ever shocked me, or made me laugh so hard, as the first time I saw Borat.
