Hey there, movie peeps!
My name is Nate Parsons and I’d like to welcome you to our new blog where we will be discussing anything and everything movie related. I have always enjoyed watching movies but I didn’t really start to appreciate movies and understand what really makes a good movie until I was about 18. That’s when I started to expand to different genres and not just watch the most popular movies that came out. And that’s when I started to realize that emotional moments throughout a movie are what drive a good movie.
Whether it’s because a particular set of moments is intense, sad, happy, funny or a combination all of those, when a movie makes you feel something (gives you “goosebumps”), that’s when you know what you’re watching is good. And when you feel those same emotions on not just the first go-round but on also the second, third and fourth times through, that’s when you know you’re watching something special.
So some of my all-time favorites that give me “goosebumps” on every viewing include: The Shawshank Redemption, Braveheart, Schindler’s List, A Beautiful Mind, One Hour Photo, Saving Private Ryan and Warrior.
Some of my other all-time favorites include: Star Wars (excited about J.J. Abrams taking over!), The Lord of the Rings, The Green Mile, The Matrix, Tommy Boy, Casablanca, The Godfather and The Thing (the John Carpenter one, the good one!).
