Movies – Why I Believe

My Blogging101 Class assignment today is to publish a post based on my own, personalized take on a blogging prompt. Today’s prompt is, Reason to Believe.

Since this is a blog about movies, I feel compelled to write about why I believe in movies…

There are a lot of  ways to escape the everyday stresses of life – friendships, sports, reading, hobbies, pets, television, working out, drugs, alcohol, etc.  My favorite way to escape is the movies.

For those two hours, I don’t need to take action, I don’t need to make decisions,  I do not need to make conversation with anyone, I can just sit back, relax and see where the movie takes me.  How I want to feel is up to me – I can chose the movie I want to see and the kind of ride I want to go on that day.   Do I want to feel inspired?  Do I need a good laugh?  Do I want to enter another world?  It’s up to me.  But whatever movie I chose, by the end of the two hours, my stresses will be far away.

      What are your favorite feel good movies? The first two that come to mind for me are Love Actually and Babe. I know those are kind of random, but I could watch them a million times.

        Ooh, tough question. I like both those movies, especially Babe. I also like Pride and Prejudice, 50 First Dates. .. I could watch those over and over.
