Do you ever find yourself obsessed with a movie?
It’s rare for me to become fixated on a movie, but every so often, I can’t get enough. I have been this way for as long as I can remember. As a kid, it was anything Jim Henson related. If it had a Henson Muppet, I was all over it. In college, I was obsessed with Bring It On, and Tim Burton movies. It’s been a few years since I have found myself drawn to a movie .
I watched Beautiful Creatures when it came out in the theater. I thought it was beautifully shot, and I really loved the characters in the movie. Recently it played on HBO, and I find myself watching it over and over again. When it’s not on, I crave watching it. Yes, it’s based on teen fantasy novels, and yes, it’s filled with angst, witches and other supernatural creatures. It’s not a movie that is going to change the worldview, but it’s a movie that has changed me.
So today, while I’m stuck in the house with another snowstorm brewing, I’m going to return to the deep south, and watch a witch fall in love with a regular boy. Maybe twice…
Do you have a movie that no matter how many times you’ve watched it, you could stand to see it one more time? What other movies would you suggest I watch?
