The Stacey Family’s Top 5 Movies

During dinner on Saturday night, my oldest randomly asked me what my favorite movie OF ALL TIME is and my brain froze up on me. One favorite movie? There is no way I could narrow it down to one movie, no matter how many hours I spent obsessing over it. But I did, after obsessing for only a few hours, manage to narrow my favorites down to an all-time Top 5, and forced my family to do the same.

My current Top 3 movies

Making time for movies

Journal page for tracking movies

We rarely go to the movie theater. Our town only has a “cinema pub” with the big tables and the super expensive menus. I don’t mind the fact wine and cocktails are on that menu, but it’s about $120 night out for my family.
