Movies That Move Us
Movies are a great chronicle of our lives. We remember our lives and the time we first saw them. Happy, sad, or poignant, they can have a profound impact on us all. Here are a few of the movies that have made an impact on my life.
The Sting – 1973
Although this has to be the greatest buddy picture ever made, the impact it had on me was introducing me to the music of Scott Joplin.
Jesus Christ Superstar – 1973
For some reason, this film and the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice reached me the way Sunday school and sermons never did. It put a contemporary face on faith for me.
Schindler’s List – 1993
This Holocaust story from filmmaker Steven Spielberg shocked me with it's accurate portrayal of the evils of Nazi Germany.
The Godfather – 1972
This saga of the Corleone family made a definite impact on me. So much so, it's my favorite movie of all time. I drive my family nuts because I will watch it any time it comes on TV.
The Enchanted Cottage – 1945
How did this black and white tearjerker from the 40's impact me. It's the best date movie you will ever find. 'Nuff said.
