Thursday Thirteen # 24 - Thirteen Movies That I Can Watch Over and Over
This week I decided to go with Movies I can watch over and over. These may make me laugh, cry or provoke thought. Do you have films that you never get enough of?
1. Roll Bounce - Funny movie about the Rollerskating subculture of the 1970's.
2. Lady Sings The Blues - Nominated for an Oscar for your first film! Diana Ross at her very best.
3. Jackie Brown - Quentin Tarentino and Pam Grier at their finest.
4. Why Do Fools Fall in Love - The movie has some of the funniest dialogue you'll ever hear.
5. Love Jones - Wonderful story about finding and losing love.
6. Final Destination Trilogy - I don't usually like scary movies, but these were riveting.
7. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles - John Candy and Steve Martin together, simply hilarious!
8. Glitter - I know, I know, it bombed and almost singlehandedly destroyed Mariah's career, but it has some good 80's disco scenes. What can I say.
9. Romeo Must Die - The last full performance by Aaliyah makes this worth watching, not to mention the martial art scenes by Jet Li.
10. Sparkle - Before Dreamgirls, there was Sparkle.
11. Piece of the Action - The third outing by Cosby and Poitier, with a killer soundtrack by Mavis Staples.
12. The Temptations - As you can tell I enjoy movies based on music.
13. Do The Right Thing - I can always watch this Spike Lee joint. Some Memorable Performances here.
This is one of my favorite scenes from the film "Trains, Planes, and Automobiles". John Candy was a gas!
