"My Mama always said, 'Life was like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're gonna get.'"

More than likely, you have heard that quote before! It came from Forrest Gump and it became so overused that most people don't even stop to think about what it really means anymore.

I found an interesting link that lists the top 10 movie quotes of all time. How many of them do you recognize?

I like quotes from movies and I will often make note of them and use them in my daily speech. Napoleon Dynamite changed the vernacular around here! - LOL!

Anyway, I enjoy watching movies, but it turns out that I don't see many of them. Last year I did a recap of my favorite 2005 movies on my scrapbook blog. Well, I want to do the same thing this year. I don't know if I will limit it to movies released in 2006 or not, just depends on how many of those I actually see since I don't make it to the theater a lot! For now, I will keep track of all the new (never before seen by me) movies I watch during the year.

A few weeks ago we watched The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill which was quite fascinating. Who knew there were wild parrots in San Francisco!? It made me want to travel there and see them for myself. It was a thought provoking movie that gave us lots of interesting discussion points to pursue as a family. I love it when that happens...when my kids want to know more! I would recommend this movie, especially if you enjoy movies like March of the Penguins or Winged Migration which are both excellent as well.

Ok, so can you believe that is the only new movie I have seen so far this year? There are a lot of movies out there that I haven't seen yet, even some classics. I hate to admit this but I have only seen 10 of
Time.com all time top 100 movies!

Want to know which 10 I have watched?

Finding Nemo
The Godfather
The Godfather II
It's a Wonderful Life
Pulp Fiction - not proud that I watched that one!
Purple Rose of Cairo
Star Wars

Somewhere, 600 miles away, my mom is shaking her head right now and wondering where she went wrong! There may be a few movies on the list that my parents had me watch when I was younger, but I didn't count them if I couldn't remember them.

So, I will try to delve into this list a little bit during the year also and see what treasures I discover.
