3 Cinema Classics I Hold Near And Dear To My Heart

Have you ever watched a movie and began to feel like you were actually amongst the characters and scenery? Like you were submersed into the storyline and had no idea what conflict you would encounter next? Trust me when I say, I have had those exact inquires.

Nonetheless, I usually have these types of feelings when I am watching some of my favorite movie classics.

Now, when I state the word "classic" I literally mean some of the best vintage cinema known to man. I absolutely adore the music, characters, and every single aspect that makes up these classic movies. "The Sound of Music," "The Wizard of Oz," and "Mary Poppins" are just a few movies that I hold near and dear to my heart.

Their talented cast and unique storylines makes each one of these films special. Since I cherish each one differently, I thought it would be great to share why I love these cinema classics so dearly.

1. The Sound of Music

I know I have written an article about "The Sound of Music" before, but I mean come on, this movie has got to be at the top of everyone's favorite classic movie list.

So many elements in this movie make it unique and special. First off, "The Sound of Music" has a stellar cast, led by the wonderful Julie Andrews. She is by far my biggest role model. Andrews is so poised, beautiful, talented, and quite honestly wonderful in all aspects.

However, Andrews is not the only reason I adore "The Sound of Music." The catchy tunes and gorgeous Austrian landscape are also attributes that made this film an instant success.

I could honestly go on and on about why this classic movie is the best; however, I'll just let you all watch and decide for yourselves.

2. The Wizard of Oz

The "Wizard of Oz" provides me with a great amount of memories made with my grandma. I can remember going over to her home and watching this wonderful film over and over again.

Judy Garland, otherwise known as Dorothy, was another woman who inspired me greatly. I felt like I related to her since Dorothy grew up in the Midwest and lived on a farm. Although, Dorothy is not the only reason I watched this film continuously.

The Cowardly Lion, Tin-Man, and Scarecrow made this movie that much more light-hearted and fun. However, I won't lie and say that I wasn't intimidated by the Wicked Witch and the flying monkeys.

3. Mary Poppins

As you can obviously observe, I have always loved movies that have some sort of vintage charm. If it wasn't for my grandma's great taste in films and love of music, I don't think I would be as passionate as I am when it comes to classic movies. Nonetheless, I encourage all of you to view these particular movies and take in each aspect.

I can promise you won't regret it.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
