5 Movies We’ll Watch

RomanticMovieDear Darling,

When we finally meet and are together, not only will we finally have someone to go to the movies with, but we’ll get to stay at home and watch our own movies. I’ve missed out on plenty of good movies I wanted to see just because there was no one to go with, and I’ve sat down to find many a good movie on TV to watch, wishing you were there to join me.

Here’s a list of five movies I want to watch with you:

1) The Princess Bride
Romantic and fanciful classic. You lose points if you’ve never seen it or can’t quote it as much as I!

2) Lord of the Rings
Yes, technically that’s three films, going on six, but the series is dramatic and powerful and as you can tell by the nomenclature of these letters, Tolkien’s worlds are quite meaningful to me.

3) Casablanca
One of my favorite movies, ever. Every line is perfect.

4) The Notebook/A Walk to Remember
They’re both chick flicks, and I’ve never seen either one all the way through. To preserve my man-card, I’ll have to have you watching them with me.

5) Groundhog Day
I don’t like the sex portrayed in it, but I like the concept and final lessons.

I love movies on TV, by the way. They censor out most of the objectionable stuff. I have pretty high standards about movies. I don’t like excessive swearing or violence, and sex/nudity is a major problem for me. I don’t think it’s healthy to let that pervade your mind when our Lord commanded us to think on what is lovely and pure. Even when we’re married and those thoughts are far more permissible than they are now (targeted as they’ll be on someone whom I may love guiltlessly), and maybe I’ll feel more license to let such content roll off my mind, I still don’t think it’s going to be healthy to consume those materials often. Unfortunately, our entertainment industry is fixed on putting it into every film in some form, but it is ours to obey God, not man.

There’ll be lots of new movies to see, and old black and white movies to catch up on.

Which ones do you want to watch with me? Start making your lists now.

Love always,
