M is for Movies

I've written many times about how much I love movies.  As a kid, they were an escape; a view into a life so different from my own.  As I grew older, they were inspiration; a way of seeing how I could and would later change my life.  As a young adult, they were a way to make time pass.  If I knew I had to be ready in 90 minutes, I would put on a 90 minute movie.  The time would pass, and I would know when it was time to be doing whatever came next.  During med school and residency training, they went back to being an escape.

Now they are a little bit of everything: they help pass the time, they help to inspire, and they are a means of escape.  Here are a few screenshots of my favorites.... can you name them all?  What are your favorites?

I'm not sure I know any of the movies you featured here. We saw a lot of movies in our youth, lots with the kids, nowadays not so many. Daughter in law saw the last Avenger movie last weekend and is "itching" for hubby to see it (he's a fan I'm not) so they can talk about it.

I would think my favorite movie is Bandits with Bruce Willis and Billy Bob Thornton. Its such a stupid movie but the memories of watching it with son at various times in life are priceless.
