Must Watch Movies…if You’re Asking Me

I love movies. If a picture is worth 1,000 words than a moving one has to be priceless, right? My favorite genre is probably romantic comedies, but to be honest the movies on my top favorites list come from all different types of genres.

My brother, who will be graduating from college this May (yay!), is a creative producing major. He has much more knowledge about the behind the scenes action that goes into making movies, Tv shows, and so forth. Ever since he started college though and began talking to my family about all that he has learned, I myself have taken greater interest, and have gained a better appreciation for the hard work that all the names of the people in the credits are putting in. Next time you watch a movie, I suggest you watch the full credits at the end, and read the titles of each job. Who knows, there might even be a special scene that only those who watch till the very end get to see.

Anyway, here is my list of movies that I love (in no special order though because that would just be too difficult to decide). Hope you like it! Oh, and also, my favorite actor is Denzel Washington, just saying. I will just name as many as I can think of on the spot so could be a long list.
