Today’s Five Things Friday is brought about movies my husband has not seen, that drives me crazy. We’ve been trying to crack into the movies that neither one of us has seen that the other person deems unacceptable.
So far I’ve made Nick watch: A League of their Own, That Thing You Do and Good Will Hunting. For a self-claimed Tom Hanks super-fan, those first two were necessary.
Other big movies I have on the list are:
1. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. THE ORIGINAL.
Nick has only seen the remake. While it is closer to the book than the original, I love the original more. The candy room, the songs, the oompa loompas. What’s not to love?
2. The Sound of Music
A true story about a family that sings, and escapes Austria. Firstly, the moved to Vermont, my home state. Secondly, they are a singing family, similar to my husband’s musical family.
3. Mary Poppins
Another Julie Andrews classic. A children’s movie that I love, it is just a fun movie.
4. The Harry Potter series.
I am a book nerd, I will admit it. I read all the books and watched all the movies. My sister always went with me to the movies. When I found out I was pregnant, Nick was in shock and agreed to go see The Deathly Hallows part 1 with me and his brother. Since I had just had the baby when part 2 came out my sister wasn’t here to be my movie buddy, so he HAD to go. Now to watch the rest.
5. A movie series that I’ve never seen that drives Nick crazy is: The Godfather series. Soon, I promise!
