Like most anything else, movies are one of those things that everyone has an opinion on. You love a movie or you hate it but, if you're truly invested, there won't be an in between. No matter where you are- on a plane, on a first date, around a dinner table, or standing in line at the store, movies are always an acceptable topic. Even more so, if you find someone that loves the same movies as you. Because, let's be honest, what's better than exchanging every. single. line of a movie with someone who gets it just as much as you do? Yep, nothing.
Here are seven movies that you have to check out, if you haven't already:
1. Forrest Gump
Anyone that knows me, knows that "Forrest Gump" will forever be my favorite movie. You can count on hearing me randomly muttering phrases such as "Run, Forrest! Run!!" on the regular.
2. A Christmas Story
While "Forrest Gump" is my favorite, "A Christmas Story" is as close behind as possible! I sport multiple shirts all year round, even when it isn't Christmas time.
3. The Great Gatsby
Leonardo DiCaprio. Need I say more?
There's no mistaking it, "Up" is hands down the best animated movie ever made. Not to mention all the feels a Disney/Pixar movie makes ya feel.
5. The Christmas Card
The movie starts out and they're just pen-pals while he was in the war. The movie ends and he came to find her, won her over, and built her a horse drawn sleigh. Come on, it's beyond dreamy.
6. The Titanic
Did I already say Leonardo DiCaprio?
7. Heart of the Country
I picked up this gem from the $5 bin at Walmart probably five years ago and I never imagined it would be one of the best movies I'd ever seen. If you're anything like me, you'll sob the whole way through.
