Two,no, three movies

Lynda has posted about her favorite movie, The Big Lebowski.. Lynda and I have similar tastes and interests.....I watched it on network TV and simply did not get it..... way too much was cut out, I think. Then, Lynda and Terri and I watched the uncut version together. Still,,,, kinda over my head... or maybe I am thinking too much.... I should be like The Dude.

You know how you just have to laugh when your friends are laughing,,,,,,, from the joy of seeing them having fun? Even if you haven't heard the joke? Laughter is contagious.. Emili and I get giggling over something and we just can't stop......... Grandpa just shakes his head and walks away, he doesn't get it, but he is glad to see us having fun.

That's how I feel about The Big Lebowski... A enjoyable film. I will watch it again, and quote the dialog, and try to be like The Dude........ It makes Lynda and Terri laugh, so I laugh right along.., I love those women, I have to laugh when they are laughing. It brings me joy. Thank You, Jeff Bridges and The Coen Bros.

Wait, wait, The Coen Brothers also made my second favorite movie....... Fargo... the first time I saw Fargo, I was horrified at the violence and murders and didn't give the film a chance. In the second viewing I came to appreciate the story and the humor. I love the musical score, the setting and the characters have depth. I have watched Fargo many times.
A quote:
Marge Gunderson: There's more to life than a little money, ya know. Don'tcha know that? And here ya are. And it's a beautiful day. Well. I just don't understand it.

A brilliant movie. Despite the "leg in the woodchipper scene".

My Favorite Movie??? The Music Man, circa 1962. A tale of a con man and his redemption, far different than Fargo in style! Singing and dancing, elaborate costumes, I love it all.

Here's a quote:
Marian Paroo: No, please, not tonight. Maybe tomorrow.
Harold Hill: Oh, my dear little librarian. You pile up enough tomorrows, and you'll find you are left with nothing but a lot of empty yesterdays. I don't know about you, but I'd like to make today worth remembering.

I agree

Wow that is so true-what if we really lived our lives as if we wanted to make memories? I must say, some of my most memorable days were pretty wild-I had a mispent youth and still remeber it today as I live a very calm middle age!

For a long time when the kids were younger, they would watch Little Women over and over. "Why does everybody have to go away...." with great bursts of laughter. It was supposed to be serious but when the boys did it, it was funny!
The other was Meet Me In Saint Louie. They watched it numerous times, cried, cheered on the naughty girls, and can still sing the songs years later. Very enjoyable to hear and remember!
