When we moved to the Upper East Side a few years ago, we did a major purge of our Gramercy apartment.
Among items deemed expendable? A small mountain of movies that were rarely watched (thanks, Netflix!). Most fell into the category of "classics," since DVD purchases for us are pretty much a thing of the past.
We were ruthless. Scott actually had - and kept - more than me, but still took several boxes of them to Goodwill.
For me, it was pretty easy to pare down to these titles:
#1 - Manhattan
If for no other reason than the opening montage.
Because Meryl Streep.
Another Woody Allen classic, with a glimpse of mid-80s Manhattan.
#5 - Love Actually
What's not to love?
#6 - The Holiday
Two words: Rosehill Cottage.
The one with Jim Carrey. I love this story, and this is one of the best movie adaptations.
