This morning we’re going to take a minute to talk about something that is far from baseball. It’s confession time on VFTB and this morning we’re confessing movies we’re embarrassed to admit we like. Since it’s hard to ask someone to admit something without also admitting something yourself, I’ll start off the discussion with a few of my own.
Shakespeare In Love – This one won the Best Picture award back in the late 90’s. The title alone is what makes me a little Leary of confessing it, but when you really sit down and watch it, it’s a great movie. I would have changed the ended to mirror the Romeo & Juliet ending since he was writing the play based on what was going on in the film. It seems only fitting for that to be the way it would end, but it didn’t. Call me lame, but I like this one a lot.
The Other Sister – I have no way to defend myself with this one. It’s a cheese fest with the premise of the story being a love that develops between two mentally handicapped people played by Giovanni Ribisi and Juliette Lewis. Both play the roles well, I thought, but the movie doesn’t get very good reviews.
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure – If this one comes on TV, I’m stopping what I’m doing and watching it. I actually saw the sequel, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, in the theaters. I have no idea what it is that draws me to this one, but I love it. I could watch it over and over again.
Now you have a few of mine. It’s time to admit some of yours. What are those movies that you’re ashamed to like?
