It's time again for another installment of Movie Magic.....the part of the show where I share great old movies with you that you I highly recommend you watch at your earliest convenience! :)
Today's Movie Magic recommendations are for two more wonderful old movies, the first being Seven Brides for Seven Brothers! If you haven't seen this, let me be the first to tell you that it is sooo, sooo good. SO good. Definitely on my top 3 favorites list. And the barn raising dance scene is one of my favorite movie scenes of all time. I'm serious here....I would not lead you astray. (I think it has something to do with all of the amazing COLORS in the dresses/shirts that they're wearing in that scene....you know me and color!)
The other old movie I'd like to recommend isn't a musical. (Are you glad? Do you like musicals or hate them?) This next old movie is one that my best friend recommended to me just last week. I checked it out from the library (free = good!) this week and we watched it this weekend. Loved it!
It's called Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House. Think "The Money Pit" only in black and white, and with Cary Grant. This is a comedy that I really enjoyed. So much fun watching this couple build their dream home!
And for you guys out there who might appreciate a man's perspective....a new addition to the Movie Magic posts:
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers -- Bart's review: "This movie has some good lessons for manly men. As men, we can all relate to Howard Keel. It's a one-time view."
LOL. Me again......he cracks me up. This movie has a lot of singing and dancing which of course, I happen to l.o.v.e., but obviously the same doesn't quite appeal so much to my hottie hubs! Hee.
Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House -- Bart's review: "I liked it. Mr. Blandings' best friend in the movie, was my favorite -- he was funny with a great dry, sarcastic sense of humor. Lots of neat old cars and buildings."
So obviously Bart's reviews are a bit different than mine.....hahaha. BUT, let me know if you (or the men in your lives) appreciate hearing Bart's takes on these Movie Magic movies. If you like them, we can keep them coming. Hee.
If you've seen these movies already, or if you go watch them, leave us a comment and let us know what you think of them! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
