Hurray for Hollywood!
Do you enjoy going "out" to the movies? Since the arrival of Netflix, I’m thrilled that “date night” translates to pj’s and wings in front of our own television…. no muss, no fuss!
As is often the case, a coworker and I began our Monday, discussing our favorite movies and performances.
Neither of us is particularly fond of “pretty boys” – aka' Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise – so there was no bloodshed, scratching, hair-pulling. :)
I'll admit, their names are synonymous with box-office gold. But, are their performances particularly memorable? Maybe. I don’t want to get into a spitting contest over something I’m sure not qualified to debate!
So, hands-down, my favorite actor is Tom Hanks. For instance ... how many actors can perform for 90 minutes opposite a volleyball… and still suck you in? Remember that scene in Castaway when “Wilson” floated away? I wept like a baby -- over an inanimate object …. go figure!
How about you? Has a special movie moment given you pause that lasts and lasts?
