Jamey and I watch a lot of movies. He likes action ones, and I love period dramas. We both enjoy a good comedy, but fail to understand all of these “reboots” and often don’t watch them. Why, when we can enjoy the originals?
We rarely go to the movie house. The last time we went it was for Star Wars Episode VII, The Force Awakens. Yes, I’m a big Star Wars fan, much to the surprise of Jamey. I like the OLD Star Wars…Episodes 1-3, meh. I enjoyed Episode VII and will be waiting for the next ones to come to Havre.
My favorite movie, however, has been and will always be Gone With the Wind. I watch it every Thanksgiving weekend. It is now an almost 30 year tradition and never fails to entertain. While some pan it as glorifying slavery, I see the movie as a strong woman of Irish heritage who did what she had to do to survive.
And considering I’m a woman of Irish (and other) heritage, I admire her determination and spunk! And I want that red velvet dress in the worst way!
