  1. RainbowRay says:


    1. PATCH ADAMS (1998)–Robin Williams
    Inspiration for RainbowRay

    2. Naked Gun series of Movies (The Police Squad)
    Talk about comedies with “perfect timing” with
    humor. Laugh splitting, gut wrenching humor.
    We miss you Leslie Nielson (A fine Canadian actor
    by the way)

    3. The Polar Express-Tom Hanks
    Ranks up there with “IT’s A Wonderful Life”
    (Fiona “Fee-Fi” makes a Wonderful Wife which should
    also be in this top 10 list , but I chose this as ONE of
    my favorite Christmas movies of all time.

    4.The Spelling Bee
    I’ve seen this movie three times and love it (i also love
    S-P-E-L-L-I-N-G (is that how you spell “Spelling”? HA!)
    B-e-e-‘S and have seen some of the Scripps Spelling
    Bee that is held every year in Washington D.C. (what a
    “capitol” idea!)

    5. Blind Side–Sandra Bullock
    A heart warming, inspiring and mucho inspirational movie
    that tugs at the heart strings. I’ve seen this movie twice
    and would highly recommend it to give yourself a lift,
    especially at Christmas time.

    6. The Bucket List–Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman
    Everyone should have A BUCKET LIST. I’m making
    one to do with Fiona and I’m asking her to do the same
    with me.

    7. Pete’s Dragon (1977)–Helen Reddy
    From Walt Disney, I cherish this movie from childhood
    and have seen it as recently as a year or so ago (again).
    Bring’s back memories.

    8. The Godfather series (1972, 1974, 1994)
    The best mobster movies EVER made in my
    opinion. Would you like to hear my Marlon
    Brando, Don Corleon impression? Ahem (throat
    clearing with cotton in my mouth) I’d like to welcome you
    on this the day of my daughter’s wedding!”
    How was that? Pretty good?

    9. The Sound of Music (1965)-Julie Andrews, Christopher
    I think everyone has seen this movie at least once in
    their lives, right? A classic!

    10. 12 Angry Men–Henry Fonda (1950’s)
    A great legal drama about a jury trying to come to a
    verdict in a famous trial, but one man (Fonda)
    disagrees wit the verdict, causing an uproar
    amongst the other jurors.

    “From peanuts to popcorn, I remain your’s, RainbowRay”

    “Sharing is caring and caring is sharing; living is giving and living is giving”
