My Movie Collection

Updated on August 24, 2013

Movies and Television Favorites

I love movies! I am a big watcher of the small screen, but I'm not a fan of "going to the movies" since I don't like the high cost of the tickets or the noise from other movie goers. And frankly, I love the ability to pause and get a snack or go to the little girl's room.

I watch a lot of movies and television shows and make no apologies for it. My movie collection of articles includes "based on" stories as well as romantic comedies, dramas, and psychological thrillers.

The magic begins with a camera like the BolexH16 16mm film camera shown here.

      My favorite is "Some Like It Hot" with Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis. I can see it again and again without getting bored...

      Only one all-time favorite? It so often depends on the day. On a cold February day, it's "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir." When I crave a visual feast, it's "What Dreams May Come." When I want to look at a handsome man, it's anything with Kurt Russell (but especially his work with Goldie).

      I'll have to look into your choices, here, too -- then this will be an even harder question to answer!

      I love so many movies and I couldn't possibly pick just one. I've watched some good movies lately. One of which you might like is called "happythankyoumoreplease" I think you might like it, upon seeing your list here it kind of fits.

      Dawn of the Dead, no contest (actually, there's plenty of contest, but Dawn of the Dead still wins through!)

      Oh gosh.....this is such a tough question. Of course I love Gone With the Wind, but I think I'd have to say Lonesome Dove is my absolute favorite movie.
