Finding Joy in Him

Through Every Season

Found a New Favorite Movie

My Top Ten Favorite Movies
I’ve been spending lots of my time watching movies lately.. 
So i thought I’d share with you some of my favorites.
The King and I (1956) – 
My favorite movie for 20 or more years.. 
I lost count of how many times I had watched it after 39..  
“Shall we dance?”  “One, two, three, and..” 

Ever After: A Cinderella Story (1998)
When it comes to this part of the movie, my whole world stops.. 
Danielle: It is not fair, sire. You have found my weakness, but I have yet to learn yours.
Henry : But I should think it was quite obvious.  
…it reminds me of a meeting I had once with Jesus in a dream.
Fiddler on the Roof (1971)
Tevye: You are just a poor tailor!
Motel: That’s true, Reb Tevye, but even a poor tailor is entitled to some happiness! 
“If I were a rich man!”
Pride and Prejudice 
I don’t know which I like the best – 
I own all three:
the book, the BBC version and this one (2005)
 “Nothing is more deceitful … than the appearance of humility. 
It is often only carelessness of opinion, and sometimes an indirect boast.”
Little Women (1994)
The book is way better than the movie.. but I still like the movie..
“Oh, Mother, if I’m ever half as good as you, I shall be
satisfied,” cried Jo, much touched.
The Sound of Music
I love this movie more every time I watch it.
“Fraulein, is it to be at every meal, or merely at dinnertime, that you intend on 
leading us all through this rare and wonderful new world of… indigestion?”

Ushpizin (2004)
If you haven’t seen this one, I have extra copies.. 
wonderful, wonderful movie about love, hope and forgiveness
 The Last Sin Eater (2007)
Wonderful story of redemption and salvation 
based on a book by Francine Rivers.

Bed of Roses (1996)
In this one, the couple lives together before getting married..
so have the fast forward button ready..
But I still love the Cinderellaish story.
“I noticed the other morning you didn’t order any breakfast. 
I wasn’t sure if that was because you weren’t a breakfast eater… 
or because you thought I was gonna kill you” 
And for number ten.. a movie I saw for the first time today
An Affair to Remember (1957)
I first heard about this movie while watching “Sleepless in Seattle”
and had wanted to see it since.  I loved it!  Best ending of any movie ever.
Scared the kids a bit by all my crying.
  “And all I could say was, “hello”.”

  1. Hey- thanks for the movie reviews. I haven't seen 3 of them. Ever After is also one of my favorite movies and that has got to be one of the best lines EVER. I also love Pride and Prejustice. . . and most of those other movies based on 19th Century Romances. I think I like North and South the best, though. I watched a Christian movie last night, but it wasn't very good. It had a good message and a good story, but not well delivered.
    Courtney PS your blog is being wierd about posting comments

  2. I have not seen half of those movies. Guess I better get to the video store.
