What’s your favorite movie?

I love everything from super goofy humor (Coming to America, Bridesmaids) to epic dramas  (Lawrence of Arabia, Casablanca) and recent releases like La La Land and Get Out. My favorite Pixar animation is The Incredibles. Don’t you love that moment when Dash finds out he can use his legs to make his mother/raft a speedboat??  It was so thrilling. In the movie Paris Je T’aime, I love the chapter directed by Alexander Payne – it’s at once hilarious and lovely. I love Sideways by Alexander Payne as well. And Mad Max: Fury Road – WOW. And boy, Kathryn Bigelow is amazing. The movies Contact with Jodie Foster and Arrival with Amy Adams fill me with hope and wonder. I think I was the only person in the theater who was bawling after watching The Road with Viggo Mortensen…it’s a stunning movie I never want to watch again because it makes me so sad. I could spend the entire next week listing all the movies I love. Many movies I love are based on books (The Road, Arrival, etc.). And as a kid, I loved the TV series The Twilight Zone. I would watch entire marathon weekends until my mom would yell at me to turn off the TV. Then I would grab a book and go outside.
