Guilty Pleasures

Recently I've begun thinking that I have much to share with the world. Often I feel the need to write, and I don't think I can pull off owning a journal. I thought I'd give this a try, but every time I started to do it, I would lose any semblance of an interesting topic to write about. I decided to default to what I do best--lists. For my first topic I will tackle 5 movies that would be considered my "guilty pleasures."

Number 5--Grease

I can't help it. Somehow me and Grease, well, we go together. I watched this movie countless times as a child, and now that I understand everything that they talk about, I can't believe my parents let me watch it.

Number 4--Three Ninjas

This movie made me crack up when I was younger, but if I found it on TV today, I'd watch the whole thing.

Number 3--Rocky IV

I realize the acting is terrible. I realize that Stallone should have stopped after Rocky II. I realize Dolph Lundgren really was on steroids. I realize that Brigitte Nielson is Flava Flav's true love. But if I can change, and you can change, everybody can change.

Number 2--Sister Act 2

Only the greatest sequel of all time. I remember singing along to the CD in middle school with my sisters. I'm not an expert, but this movie is, without a doubt, Whoopi's crowning achievement.

Number 1--Bloodsport

Jean Claude Van Damme. The greatest actor of this generation.

I can't believe I let you watch Grease either, but you probably knew its 'meaning' before I did!
You are a wonderful writer...you do me proud! I can't wait to read more!!
