Rants and Raves: Films to be Thankful For

Great blog - thank you for reminding us of some awesome movies that are worth revisiting!
I'm grateful for movies that lure me in, completely mesmerize me and let me truly escape reality for 2 or so hours. I'm grateful for movies that make me laugh so hard that my cheeks and sides hurt and leave me in giggle fits for days. Or dramas that linger in my head for days afterward, making me wonder what I would have done in that character's place. Or scary movies that won't let me go back to sleep at 3.30 am (ok, maybe not so grateful for THAT), but you know what I mean ;). Or sci-fi movies that make me wish I was born 500 years from now..
I'm grateful for genius comic pairings like Steve Martin and John Candy in "Trains, Plains & Automobiles", gutsy casting (from male to female) of characters like Ellen Ripley in the "Alien" movies or even TV show "Battlestar Galactica" (Starbuck and Boomer). Grateful for the fact that women are getting a foothold in the Horror genre (not just as damsels in distress, but as directors and writers). I could go on...and on and I know I'm probably leaving out things I'll facepalm myself for later... I'm also grateful for knowing other movie buffs and fanatics with whom I can discuss these things for hours into the night :)
