I am not doing every day of this challenge because honestly that takes a little more effort than I am willing to put into it. But this one struck me because if you follow any of my posts you know how much I love my movies. So in no particular order, here are three movies that I never get tired of. 1. Elizabethtown. Starring Orlando Bloom and Kristin Dunst. This movie did not get the attention it deserved. It's my favorite movie of both actors. Its such a beautiful story of finding yourself and who you really are. 2. Julie and Julie. This is probably one of my all time favorite movies. About a woman who decided to cook her way through Julia Child's cook book. and 3. Fern Gully. My favorite movie as a little kid. This is one that I will watch whenever I see it on tv, and I have been looking for them to put it back on the shelves at Walmart because its been awhile since I've seen it. Its actually a really silly movie. But it does have a cute story. So what about you? what are three movies that you never get tired of watching? I'd love to see @CoralLevang , @DesriousDreamer take part in this, because id love to see what their movies are.

I like the movie Rudy about a young guy who gets on the Notre Dame football team despite all odds. Elizabeth the first movie with Cate Blanchett. and Lord of the Rings..all of the movies are quite entertaining.

I only got through the first LOTR movie, I just couldn't get into them. I only read the Hobbit the other books just didn't interest me.

I have seen all those. Some say Rudy is the best football movie ever.

Elizabethtown was a box office failure that the critics roasted. I saw it and while I didn't think it was great, it was okay. I like Kirsten.

I am not into movies these days, but Braveheart would be about the only one. The rest are series can I do that? Oh, I make my own rules. I never get tired of watching Generation Kills and the Wire and both were done by David Simon. He is brilliant

Braveheart is good, but its not one that I would watch over and over again. In fact we don't even own it.

@thislittlepennyearns Mel Gibson has taken a nose dive as of late but one has to admit one of the best actors ever. Take out all the romance can watch that all day and why I never got into Keanu Reeves. That guy cannot act for anything. Never got how he became famous other than good looks and does action movies. Also Mel does not really line up to what that movie says and think why so many are mad at him.

@crossbones27 Keanu Reeves is a good actor, he had bad roles. John Wick was really good. Somethings Gotta Give and Much Ado About Nothing are my favorite roles hes played.

Elizabethtown got a lot of press here...but that's because I live 50 miles away from Elizabethtown, where the movie was filmed! My three are Casablanca, The Ten Commandments, and the original The Day the Earth Stood Still.

Yeah, I would imagine it did get a lot of press there. I've actually been to where it was filmed,but it was before the movie was filmed. I've never seen all of those all the way through. I wasn't a huge fan of the remake of The Day the Earth Stood still.

@thislittlepennyearns -- I didn't see the remake, but when I realized I was bored while watching the trailer I thought, nah, I'd better not. The original isn't "sci-fi" the way you think of sci-fi: the lead character is an alien, and he has an 8-foot tall robot, but it's more a commentary on the "red menace" scare of the 50s.

@FourWalls I may have to see if I can find the original on Amazon and order it. It would be interesting watch. What kind movies do you mostly watch? Do you like sci fi?

Hmmm. . . I'd have to go with The Hunt for Red October, 1995 BBC Pride and Prejudice, and Christmas Vacation.

I just bought Christmas Vacation on dvd. I found the special edition on dvd at the thrift store new with the wrapper on it. I had to have it. Lol. And that is my favorite Pride and Prejudice.
