And then I started thinking that perhaps instead of binge watching old TV series I should binge watch movies. I decided just to take on the top 100 movies for a starter. Now I'm very sure I am going to agree with quite a few of the entries on this list but I already know I'm going to argue about a few as well.
So here is #20 of the top 100 Movies of all time according to IMDB:
The Sound of Music (1965)
Okay, how did a movie like Pulp Fiction rate higher than The Sound of Music? A classic movie featuring the amazing voice and talent of Julie Andrews. I don't have any clue how many times I have watched the story of a novitiate who is a square peg in a round hole until she is sent to act as governess to the von Trapp family and falls in love, gets married and escapes from the Nazis. What is not to love about this movie?
Even if you've never watched it, I bet you sang the songs in music class in school.
