This week’s movie poll on MovieFanFare asks you to pick what your favorite Thanksgiving movie scene is. But while we are on the subject of the holiday, I thought I would give you the reader a chance to sound off about what films you feel thankful for.
So here’s what I’d like you to do: in the comments section of this post, let me know what movie you feel gratitude for and why.
These don’t have to be holiday-specific films (like the pictured Planes, Trains and Automobiles). Mainly I’m looking for you to tell me about movies that you cherish all year round and the various reasons why you love them so.
Whether you are grateful for the warmth that watching a classic like Casablanca gives you or just thankful that J.J. Abrams didn’t screw up the Star Trek franchise, I can’t wait to hear what you have to say.
