31 Days of Film - Film from your favorite Director

No surprise that I chose a movie from Steven Spielberg. I've gushed about him regularly on my blog. I love his films. He has such a range, each one with heart and a great bit of storytelling. His misses aren't BIG misses by most standards, and really the only reason I have a few on my "don't like" list is because of the subject matter.

Indiana Jones is one of the best movie trilogies of all time (I refuse to acknowledge the fourth one). My favorite is The Last Crusade. It's just a fun movie, with a lot of charm and humor. The father-son element is strong in the film, as it is with a lot of Spielberg's films. (I know, there I go again with the whole father-child relationship fangirling. It's not just a Once Upon A Time thing!)

Sean Connery gives a stellar performance as Indy's father, part absent minded professor and part James Bond. And, of course, Harrison Ford was born to play the role of Indiana Jones. The combo was sheer genius and made for a highly entertaining flick. I'm going to have to watch it tomorrow after I get home from my job interview - it's been far too long since I watched it!

There will be more Spielberg gushing later in this 31 day challenge. Spielberg is the best director of his generation. He's another molded from the same cloth as Walt Disney. They just know how to tell a story and capture the world's imagination and CHANGE the way we do things and the way we think. But I'll save that gushfest for later. It's almost 11... I need to sleep to be ready for tomorrow.

35 Days till Disneyland, btw, in case you lost count and couldn't read the ticker on my blog. ha ha
