Mushy Movies

After another really late, late night watching Great Expectations yet again I got to thinking about what it was that I really liked about it. I don't think Gwyneth Paltrow is all that pretty, Ethan Hawke is not that good an actor; I guess it's just the story that I like. Exposure to the dark side of human nature is a revelation every time. And, like most of the world, I cheer for the underdog. Even when I'm my most practical, satirical, cynical, sceptical of moods, I can't help but feel good when the protagonist finally overcomes the odds.

I'm listing down a few of my favourite movies that follow this pattern; You could comment on your own favourite movies, or put them up on your blog and link it up here.

1. The Shawshank Redemption
2. Great Expectations
3. The Last of the Mohicans
4. Legends of the Fall
5. Love Actually
6. Reality Bites
