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.
