In an effort to write something, anything (in the hopes that the writing will translate to my thesis), I'm going to be starting a new series of posts. A series about movies.
More, specifically, a series about Movies My Family Quotes. I'm starting with 31 movies. There are many more that I could add. And that's not even counting all the TV shows and church films and cartoons (oh, the cartoons!) which I'm not even touching. I got the idea from conversations with my co-workers, where I realized that the movies that my family quotes are not always the movies everyone quotes. But when someone recognizes a quote from one of our movies, I know I've got a kindred spirit. So I thought I'd share my love for some of these amazing films. Who knows-- maybe you'll find a new favorite. Or you'll discover that we're also kindred spirits. :P I have no idea what my posting schedule will be, although I'm going to try to do at least 3 movies a week.
I thought I'd start off big-- with the mother of all quotable movies. At least for my family. I remember one camping trip with assorted extended Bytheway relatives, we sat around the campfire for at least 20 minutes, spouting line after line from this movie. If we tried hard enough, I think we could, collectively, quote the whole thing from beginning to end.( Propriety? Noun: Conformity to established standards of behavior or manner, suitability, rightness, or justice. See: etiquette )
So how many of you love this movie as much as I do?
