Sense of Sarah: Movies

Wednesday, March 7, 2018

It's been a LONG time since I've done a Sense of Sarah post, so if you're new around here or need a refresher on what that is, Sense of Sarah posts are just blog posts that let you get a little peek into who I am and what I'm about!

Today's post is all about my favorite movies.  One thing you need to know about me is that I love watching a movie!  My mom used to take us to the movies a lot when I was younger, and going to the movies now is still something that I really love doing.  Sadly, Dustin doesn't enjoy watching movies (obviously that wasn't a deal breaker for us haha) so I don't get to go as often as I'd like but that doesn't stop me from watching them at home all the time!

So without further adieu, here are some of my very favorite movies of all time!

 My number one favorite movie of all time is When Harry Met Sally!!!  I can quote the entire movie, and embarrassingly enough, I quoted the end of this movie to Dustin when I was really ready for him to propose to me 😂🙈  I make it a point to watch this movie around New Years every year.

 This movie comes in a close second for my favorites, and Pretty Woman is another one that I can quote every line.  I love Julia Roberts and Richard Gere so much in this movie and they are awesome together!  My mom and I used to watch this together all the time and so I always think of my mom when I watch this movie!

 Because I'm a southern woman, it's pretty much a given that I'm going to love Steel Magnolias.  I love the storyline, the quotable lines, just everything about this movie.  Now that I'm married to a Type 1 diabetic, the low blood sugar scene with Shelby is hard to watch.

 I always pay attention to the music in movies and this movie's soundtrack is amazing!!!  But in all honesty, I really love the storyline, too.  I love that it's based off of the life of the writer, Cameron Crowe.  I cannot imagine being a teenager and writing for Rolling Stone magazine  while traveling with a band on tour.  If you haven't ever watched this movie, then stop everything and watch it now!

I feel like it's another given that I have to like Forrest Gump because I'm from Alabama.  Well, I'll gladly play into that stereotype because it's a wonderful movie!  No matter how many times I've seen this movie (and it's probably close to a million), I always cry at the ending when Forrest is under the tree.  Always.  Now I feel like I need to put this movie on and watch it tonight!

Yes, I'm putting a Christmas movie on my list because it only makes sense to have a Christmas movie when that's my favorite holiday!  The Holiday is such a different kind of Christmas movie and that's why I think it's popularity has lasted.  I can watch this movie anytime during the year--not just at Christmas!

What is your favorite Christmas movie?


  1. I LOVE Pretty Woman, too! And Steel Magnolias was one that I used to watch with my cousins allll the time. It's been forever, so I definitely think I need to rewatch it soon!

  2. You know I adore Pretty Woman and of course the ladies of Steel Magnolias have my heart. I too must watch the Holiday during Christmas time and my favorite to watch during that time although also not being a Christmas movie is Sound Of Music! LOVE Sense of Sarah posts!

  3. You're going to freak out.. but I've only seen one of your favorite movies!!! Haha! The Holiday! Haven't seen any of the others!

  4. THese are all amazing. I have a snow day today so I think I might just have to have a movie marathon!

  5. These are all such good movies!! I saw Almost Famous in the theaters and just loved it. I need to rewatch it again soon. Love these all and would add Win a Date with Tad Hamilton, Tommy Boy and Sweet Home Alabama to my list.

  6. YES to ALL! My husband actually made me watch When Harry Met Sally because I have NEVER seen it! Needless to say we now own it!

  7. I am a sucker for old chick flicks myself... one of my all-time favorite movies is Under The Tuscan Sun and I will totally watch The Holiday any month of the year :)

  8. I sure do feel like you and I could spend time together and have so much fun.....despite our age difference!

  9. All great choices! I LOVE Almost Famous! A lot of people don't know that one when I talk about it so it's cool that you chose that one!

  10. Forrest Gump will always be number one for my husband and I-it even played into us going to Savannah for our honeymoon! And our lab is named Forrest, so you can say we're mildly obsessed, haha!

    xoxo, SS

    Southern and Style

  11. Steel Magnolias is SUCH a good movie! My mom was obsessed with Pretty Woman when I was young, so I'm like you there's not a time that I see it on tv that I don't think of my mom. What else...never seen Almost Famous, Forrest Gump has to be one of the greatest films of all time, and I want to live in the magical bedroom tent from Sophie & Olivia's room in The Holiday!
