After a break for a family event last week I had planned to return to normal with a review of what was out at the cinema this week. But for various reasons while I did get to see a movie, it ended being a movie as part of a movie season, which got me to thinking – what is your favourite movie?
There is probably a good chance that there are multiple choices, but why are our favourite movies rarely what is currently out at the cinema. That is not to say that the current fair at the cinema is not worthy of checking out, but as there is such a quick turnover of films in your local multiplex it is unlikely to be anyone of those.
More often than not your favourite movie is the one that keeps being revisited again and again, genre is not always important either. Your favourite movie tends to be like a warm blanket, it comforts you, it is familiar and you know what you are going to get.
That last one ultimately might be the most important one when it comes to examining what your favourite movie ends up being. No need to check out a review or wonder if it is going to be any good, you just know that it will be. I could give you a long list of my favourite ones, but we would probably disagree – my favourite is unlikely to be yours!!
Will you be watching it again today?
