Armaid Staff’s Favorite Movies

March 8, 2017

These are the films each of us has watched over and over, or can quote whole scenes from, or can sing entire soundtracks to. Movies are like music, in that they are deeply personal in their connection and transformative for each individual at that point in their life, forever changing the way the viewer sees the world.


Garden State - “You know that point in your life you realize that the house you grew up isn’t your home anymore. Even though you some place to put your shit, the idea of home is gone…you feel homesick for a place that doesn’t even exist.” So many great lines in this movie. And a kickass soundtrack too boot

Prime - “It is better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all.”

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days - “Our love fern, it is dead. Are you going to let us die? You should think about that!”
