Confessions of a Movie Addict


For as long as I can remember, movies have been part of my life. I don’t know if my parents plopped me in front of the TV one too many times, or if it’s just in my DNA, but I have an movie addiction that’s still going strong today.

My levels of addiction went something like this:

Disney movies:

Was it the forbidden romances in Cinderella and The Little Mermaid that lured me in? Or the cute little animals like Bambi and Lady and the Tramp who I wished I could play with in real life? haha. Whatever the reason, I’m a faithful Disney Queen and will watch these classics again and again, happily.

Hottie Flicks:

As a young girl, I sighed over teen heartthrobs and cool movies like The Outsiders, Pretty in Pink, Some Kind of Wonderful, Karate Kid, and The Breakfast Club. I guess I’ve always had a thing for teen drama, huh?

Action, Romance, and a Touch of Humor:

There is just something about those rebellious heroes, who are the underdog in the beginning and prevail in the end. I’m content when there is lots of action, sudden romance, mixed in with memorable lines that make you smile. I’ll always be a faithful fan of Rocky, Indiana Jones, Lethal Weapon, and Die Hard--movies that keep you on the edge of your seat and rooting for the guys who are imperfect, but with good hearts.

Yeah, that’s the road I traveled to get where I am today. So if there’s a cure, I don’t want one. I love to be entertained and now I try to entertain readers with my own stories.

Are you movie addicted? Confess some of your favorite movies! Your secret is safe with me. :)

Kelly, I'm with you--movies are a big part of my life. Here's two favorite DVDs that seem to rise to the surface whenever I'm under the weather: 13 GOING ON 30 and the BBC version of PRIDE & PREJUDICE. I can't seem to get enough!

I adore movies. However, I don't tend to watch movies over and over. Or if I do, I typically wait a long time, so I don't remember much. I like to watch action/thrillers on the big screen, but wait for DVDs when it's a sad or "deep" movie.

Great post, Kelly. Did you see Jungle Book limited ed. is coming out?

Tina, 13 Going on 30 is very cute! I haven't caught P&P yet!

Wendy, I'll have to swoop up the Jungle Book--that's one Disney movie not in my library. haha!

Sara Hantz said...

I LOVE movies!!! My favourites: Love Actually, Notting Hill, Miss Congeniality, Sister Act (1 and 2), Calamity Jane, Singing in the Rain, Funny Girl, Funny Lady.... and loads more.....

Tina, I loved the BBC version of P&P with Colin Firth!!! The definitive Darcy. My only criticism is I felt Alison Steadman over played the mother!

Amanda Ashby said...

Kelly, I think we could hang out together because we love all the same movies! One of the first movies that I really loved was Valley Girls with a super young Nicolas Cage in - le swoon. Btw, my kids LOVE jungle book and we always seem to have the soundtrack on in the car!!!

Jessica Burkhart said...

I still adore Disney movies! :) I think I've seen Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast a zillion times.

Tina, 13 Going on 30 is a great movie. I love Jennifer Garner!

I love movies! My perfect day was to go to the movies and then go and rent 2 or 3 movies, get a bottle of wine and # of shrimp and go home and watch more movies!!!

Classics: Lion in Winter, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Gone with the Wind.
