I was playing the game Dominion, which is great, with my friends Dan and Eric the other day when Eric played the Witch card. Since I, like so many of you, was raised on movies and TV shows, I cannot help it but to quote dialogue that matches what’s going on at the time. So when Eric said he was playing the Witch, I said “I’m not a Witch, I’m your wife!”
Putting the gender confusion aside, it’s from “Princess Bride,” and when I said it we shared a chuckle and agreed that it’s a perfect movie. Which is what bring us here to this blog today.
The perfect movie. A movie that couldn’t have been improved by changing anything in the script, the acting, the dialogue, the plot, the anything. “Princess Bride” is one of them, and I’m gonna hit you with a few others below. Note that this isnt a list of “Godfathers” and “Citizen Kanes” but a list of MY perfect movies that showed up during MY generation. The kind of flick that my friends or I were channel surfing and come across, we couldn’t help but to say “oh!” and settle in. Here we go, feel free to add or disagree:
The Spanish Prisoner
Full Metal Jacket
