In case you don’t subscribe to my YouTube channel, and missed my explanation of this project, here is a brief recap. I’m turning 30 at the end of June. I thought it would be fun to celebrate this milestone by talking about a bunch of my favorite things over the course of the month. I’ve already finished one list of favorites (my favorite books), over on my YouTube channel, which you are welcome to check out by clicking on this link here.
Today I am continuing to count down my favorite movie moments with number 24 to 19. Also, please excuse some of the poor quality clips. I was restricted to what was available on YouTube.
#24 – “Pure Imagination”
Movie: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971)
Walking into Wonka’s factory for the first time is a magical experience, and grants the wish of every child for there to be a real life land made of candy. Also, Gene Wilder is wonderful.
#23 – Sam tells his story.
Movie: Sleepless in Seattle (1993)
Never fails to make me tear up.
#22 – “When Somebody Loved Me”
Movie: Toy Story 2 (1999)
This sequence will make you feel like a terrible person for throwing away your old toys.
#21 – Eduardo realizes he got screwed.
Movie: The Social Network (2010)
Andrew Garfield lets loose in this scene in a way I’ve seen few actors even attempt. All the frustration we have seen building within Eduardo reaches a boiling point, and is tipped over the edge when his “friend” screws him over after everything they’ve been through.
#20 – “I can’t beat it.”
Movie: Manchester By The Sea (2016)
After a heartbreaking revelation of Lee’s past, we see him break down even more as he admits to his nephew that he is incapable of moving past his guilt to take care of him in the way he knows he should.
#19 – “Come out sideways.”
Movie: Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987)
Always gets a laugh from me, even when I’m not watching the movie but simply thinking about the scene.
Swing by tomorrow to see more of my favorite movie moments.
