Movies according to Courtney

Noelle's Movie Meme is out of my league. I haven't seen a whole lot of the movies on it, but Courtney at Yarn Tootin' made up her own list. I've seen more of these, so I'll bold the ones I've seen, italicize the ones I want to see, then I'm going to grade student stories.

1960's
The Sound of Music Watched this at my bachelorette party with Brian.

I'm going to have to try this one too. I'm a big sucker for movie memes. Don't feel badly about my list. I went to a school with a working film department and this was where having a telvision actually helped.

You haven't seen Garden State? I looove it. I have it, I'll lend it to you if you want.

This list was supposed to be a little joke intended to vex my brother and my husband, and I'm flattered that you've taken it to a new level. I do love all of the movies on the list even if they aren't super important or award winning. littlehedgehog commented on my blog that it all comes down to personal taste and I couldn't agree more.

I think Dances With Wolves was 1990.

I love Loyd too. When I mention that movie to My Partner in Kindness he shrugs... he knows about it but never saw it. He is SO missing out!
