You know those movies that you can always return to, the ones that give you warm fuzzy feelings inside? There are movies I’ve watched for years and years, the ones that were my bread and butter when I was kid, and I’m pretty sure they’ll always have a special place in my heart.
Some of them, in fact, are still viable options on our movie shelf. So for the ones that we still enjoy watching, I’ve labeled them with #stillwatching.
1. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
This movie shaped my perspective on life. 50% of who I am comes from Seven Brides. The qualities I search for in guys are (a) tall as church steeples, (b) rugged good looks, (c) one of seven brothers.
Also, Millie is the original Queen, and she slays wherever she goes. And can I please have all the girls’ dresses because they’re AMAZING.
We actually watched this yesterday, so of course #stillwatching.
2. Scamper the Penguin
3. Wee Sing Under the Sea
THEY GO INTO THE MAGICAL PAINTING!!!! IT’S AMAZING!!! IT’S MAGICAL!!!
Except now, it’s so clearly obvious that they were Not Actually Underwater, and my grown-up heart breaks a little.
4. Barbie Nutcracker
This holiday classic will never go out of style. (Literally, I think we watched this last Christmas.) First, ballet princess. Second, Barbie.
Third, sNoW fAIrIeS!!!
5. Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron
I still get chills when he makes The Jump. (Except we have the full-screen version so that closeup is cropped in waaay too far.) First, Hans Zimmer did the music. Second, Matt Damon voices Spirit. Third, it’s about a majestically beautiful horse.
What movies did you grow up? What movies do you still continue to watch to this day?
