I am a man, in the middle of life. What that means to me, you and us is what I hope to frame in my attempts at this.

There are a few movies I love, and today is going to be the first of (maybe) more Movie Mondays...so to kick it off, a list of my favorite movies, in no particular order:

-Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
-Finding Nemo
-Fight Club
-Toy Story 1,2,3
-LOTR trilogy
-Back to the Future trilogy
-The Shawshank Redemption
-The Matrix
-The Chronicles of Narnia
-Forgetting Sarah Marshall
-A Christmas Story
-District 9

Each of these movies have a way to say different things to me, and some are like virtual time bookmarks in my life, holding a place that meant something sometime for me.

There is something great about a good movie, and when you find one that speaks to you, in a funny or sad or tragic or amazing way it can leave a lasting impact...when you look at the few I listed, or your own list, What movies speak to you?


  1. A movie that I have been able to watch over and over again because of some of the great dialog has been Forbidden Kingdom with Jackie Chan and Jet Li. Great film overall but has some moments that really make you think.

  2. I still haven't watched it all the way through, but I would like to....
