Marya: A Life in Movies
Like Amy’s post before mine, I take a look at one film from each year of my life. Most of these films I saw roughly when they were released, with one exception. Although lists like these are always hard to compose, they often reveal a lot about you once you’re finished. That is definitely the case this time. So, here’s a look at my life in movies.
1986 – Pretty In Pink
All I have to say about this film is that Andie and Blaine belong together and Duckie just needs to get over it. Also, I may have seen this film more than any other film ever.
1987 – Baby Boom
I suppose this movie is really about Diane Keaton’s relationship with the baby she inherits from her distant British cousin, but for me it’s all about how hot Sam Shepard is. I mean, just look at him.
1988 – Willow
This is the first film I ever saw in theaters. Little two or so year-old Marya really got into it, even if audience participation wasn’t actually expected.
1989 – The Little Mermaid
My first introduction to the world of Disney animation. I love watching this film even today.
1990 – Ghost
Maybe this film is dated and a little cheesy. Maybe I don’t care.
