Alright, so maybe the title was a little deceiving. It’s true in part, but I left out two words: “By Me”. I recently was reminded of a movie I used to watch over and over as a kid. I loved it. I decided to scour the internet until I finally found one company that actually sold the movie. I bought it for the kids and they loved it too! Now my little boy can have a crush on the same girl I had a crush on when I was young.

This got me thinking about the movies I watched as a kid. I give you my top 5 most frequently viewed movies:
1. Hoosiers or The Natural
Such great movies. The two best sports movies of all-time. Who can forget this scene in Hoosiers?
Best scene: It sends chills up my spine just thinking of Jimmy Chitwood coming of the dribble and nailing the shot at the buzzer to win the Indiana State High School Championship. Not to be outdone, Roy Hobbs’ powerful swing brought the NY Knights the pennant. Best scenes: Hobbs knocking the cover off the ball and nailing a home-run into the lights and creating his own “fireworks”.
2. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
|Yes, it’s as cheesy as it looks|
I know, I know. But this I blame on my sister. It’s actually a pretty good movie if you take out all the singing and dancing. Best scene: Milly flips the table of food over onto her new family. “If your gonna act like hogs, you’re gonna eat like hogs!”
4. On Our Own
5. Remo Williams
If you have not seen this movie, good luck finding it. I don’t think it’s on Netflix. Best scene is when Remo breaks out of the gas chamber by using a guys tooth filling. Best quote is by his master Chin, who said “Women should stay home and make babies”.
