Movies, Movies, Movies

                I like almost any movie I watch. Besides documentaries and some crude humor movies, (for example Bruno), I like just about all of them. Any movie with action and/or a good plotline makes a good movie I believe I would say that my favorite types of movies to watch are comedies and science fictions though. I watch movies for the entertainment of them , not usually to gain any knowledge or wisdom from them. They are a time filler, and I pick the type of movies that make life seem very interesting, like people making jokes all of the time, or imagining if there were supernatural beings and futurist ideas.

                If I had to pick one movie to recommend for a friend to watch, I would choose The Prestige. It is a psycological thriller and is about two magicians that are trying to out do each other, going to extreme levels to do so through out their lives. The two main actors are Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale. It has suspense, deceit, mystery, and fantasy aspects within it, and will catch you by surprise if you're not watching closely.
 The actor from the Golden Age that I researched was John Wayne. He was in a ton of old Western movies and was very popular. I know my grandpa loved his movies and we would always watch them at his house when we went to his house. John Wayne was born in 1907 and died in 1979. He had a career lasting 50 years and became a movie legend. A few of his movies include Red River, True Grit ( the original), and Rio Bravo. People really liked Westerns because their wasn't as many cities make then, and alot of people lived in the country.


  1. I am the same way. I like all movies and am a huge movie person. Also if you have not watched any old movies with John Wayne I advise you too.

  2. One thing interesting about John Wayne's collectible items is that there price less based from pawn stars. Also his movies are good.

  3. Yeah that seemed like Jon Wayne was all he watched lol:)
    The Prestige was an excellent movie in my opinion as well.
