Lights, camera, action!

We all have a favorite movie that we can watch a million times and still love.

Admit it, you probably quote that movie a lot. A lot of people even quote popular lines from movies they haven't seen. Those lines are just a part of pop culture and we all somehow know them whether we've seen the movies they're from or not. 

Like many people, I'm a big movie lover. I love going to the movies and seeing them on the big screen or just watching movies alone in my room. Movies are such a fun escape from reality. You get to dive into someone else's world for about 2 hours and they almost always have a happy ending (almost).
