Open Book Blog Hop: Movies I wish I could see for the first time.

Is there a movie from childhood that still holds a special place with you (one you saw as a child, but isn’t necessarily a child’s film)?

I was watching “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark” last night and even though I’d seen it oh so many times before, it was still suspenseful when he was running from the giant boulder—of course he’s going to make it. Not like the guy with the spike through his head. Didn’t see that coming, well, I did.

It got me thinking what movies mesmerized me when I was younger. One aspect of watching movies then was the fact that I didn’t know the actors. To me they weren’t actors, the were the characters. Luke, Leia, Han, Obi-Wan were Luke, Leia, Han, Obi-Wan, and it wasn’t until later that I began to see these actors in different roles. But Indiana Jones will always be Han Solo because I saw him first.

Here are some movies I’d like to see for the first time:

  • Star Wars: Episodes IV, V, and VI
  • The above mentioned Indiana Jones movie
  • The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. I wasn’t young when I saw it, but it was exciting to see a childhood story come to life.
  • Field of Dreams. I admit, this one still makes me cry at parts. I’d like to experience the full on bawl that happened the first time.

Psst, I did get a few ideas from one of my previous posts: Read the Movie or Watch the Book
