I can't believe we are now on the 52nd edition of Tuesday Couch Potatoes! It's that fast!? Thanks mostly to you all who never tire of joining every Tuesday. Our theme for this week is Favorite American Movie. To be honest, I am confused on what to pick and feature this Tuesday. I am thinking of choosing between drama or fantasy adventure but I am featuring the movie that I love to watch over and over again. I am after all more drawn to the extraordinary and make believe.
My pick then will have to be The Lord of The Rings trilogy. It has got lots of aspects of human nature combined: love, hatred, good and evil, hope, peace, happiness, friendship, courage, faith, determination, anger, acceptance. The trilogy in itself is a fascinating journey and the adaptation of the LOTR books was beautifully done. Although it's a fantasy movie, the values that the movie emulated were very, very much human. The actors in the movie also did justice to their roles, making it very effective. Who could also forget the superb soundtrack of the movie, mostly done by Enya?
This movie won lots of Oscars too. But Oscar or not, still will always be one of my favorites. What's yours? Share it with us by entering your TCP URL in the linky below:
Thanks for joining this week Couchers! Apologies for the delay in posting my entry and the linky. Hope to see you all again for next Tuesday's theme: Something New (the latest, fresh release movie that you saw). Take care everyone! Happy TCP!
