Whenever my dad and I watch particular movies, he'll tell me about his Island Top 10 movie list. (You know what I'm talking about, right?) Most of his list includes classics from the 1950s and movies like Animal House. If I happened to be stuck on an island with a comfy chair and a television that could play DVDs, I would hope that these movies would be available to me (in no particular order):
4. The Holiday
7. Garden State
10. You've Got Mail
As you can plainly see, I love movies about finding true love, overcoming obstacles, being true to yourself and supporting others. Oh, I'm such a sap. What's on your Island Top 10?
Until next time,
PS - If you haven't had the chance to see In Time, starring Amanda Seyfried and Justin Timberlake, you should hop on your bike or whatever and scoot on down to your nearest cineplex. I thought it was really well done. This movie really puts the importance of time into perspective. Let's all sieze the day more often!
PSS - Did you know that the phrase carpe diem is actually part of the longer phrase carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero. The latter means "Seize the Day, putting as little trust as possible in the future." It's just something to think about.
