Dirty Dancing was on TV not too long ago. I’ve seen that movie at least 50 times, but I still sat and watched it on TV. I had plenty of other things to do, but it was Dirty Dancing! So it got me thinking, what other movies do I stop what I’m doing and watch no matter what?
1. Dirty Dancing
“I carried a watermelon.” Classic. My favourite coming of age movie. Plus I love Jerry Orbach who plays Baby’s father. Did you know he was the voice of Lumiere in Beauty & The Beast?
2. Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan
Best Star Trek Movie Ever. Well, with the old cast because the new movie and cast is FREAKIN’ AWESOME. Ricardo Montalban’s chest in this movie. Yes, that’s his real chest. This movie really solidified how much I loved Star Trek and always will. Yeah, I know-I’m a geek! Also, I’m pretty sure I was born in the wrong century. I should be on the Enterprise as a Science Officer!
3. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Steve Martin and Michael Caine are a comedic genius pairing. This movie is hilarious from start to finish. Love it. I love almost everything Steve Martin does.
4. Singin’ In The Rain
Probably my favourite old style musical. Everything about it is just magical. I think I know all the songs by heart I think. Donald O’Connor was a genius in it, and Gene Kelly makes my heart flutter every time! HIS BUTT. OMG.
5. Shaun Of The Dead
My favourite Zombie Movie. Brilliantly written dark comedy. Makes me laugh every single time I watch it. Plus Bill Nighy’s in it and I love him, even though he dies. 🙁 I also like this movie because it’s a classic take on how zombies move-no running. Although, I’m starting to think they will be able to run. Gotta get a treadmill in the house to resume my cardio training!
Picking just 5 movies was hard!! But these 5 movies I’ll always stop whatever I’m doing to watch on TV.
So, what are your 5 Movies you stop to watch?
