    The story line of Field of Dreams drew me in and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. I thought it was well written and directed and the acting was excellent. To paraphrase the well-known line from the movie....If I enter it, they will come!

    I just love 'Pillow Talk'... it always seems to bring me a smile. It's a great film on a flu day or even when you think the world has just got to crazy. It takes you have to a simpler time, where romance isn't dead.

    A few movies have moved me like Schindler's List did. It's deeply emotional and done with so much humanity and spirit. It is an amazing work of art from one of the best filmmakers alive today.

    Jurassic Park was a blast when I first saw it at the show. Dinasaurs do exist! The whole movie had me excited. I won't forget the 1st time.

    The Breakfast Club! Such a classic. This reminds me of high school, I went through a phase of Molly Ringwald discovery. I think my sister and I watched every movie she had ever starred in that summer... haha
