My Top 100 Movies (in no particular order)
15/100: Its a Wonderful Life
This is also one that I have talked about before, but I cannot stress enough how much I love this movie. It has been such a great influence in my life. I relate to this movie on so many levels, and I love every message of it! The characters are incredible, I love me some Jimmy Stewart. I mostly love that it is the story of an every man, and for that reason it is one of the most happy and uplifting films that I have ever seen When this man dies, those that knew him will remember him fondly but the world will not, and that is okay, and I love that thought because I think that is what most of us should aspire to be. Not that we should not ever want to be more than that, but the fact is that even if the whole world doesn’t know who you are, you still have touched some people’s lives. :)
"Just remember this, Mr. Potter, that this rabble you’re talking about… they do most of the working and paying and living and dying in this community. Well, is it too much to have them work and pay and live and die in a couple of decent rooms and a bath? Anyway, my father didn’t think so. People were human beings to him. But to you, a warped, frustrated old man, they’re cattle. Well in my book, my father died a much richer man than you’ll ever be!"
