Top Five April Movies

Again, spring movies are tough. Any comments or suggestions are welcome.

Bull Durham - My all time favorite baseball movie and it isn't very close. I try to watch it each year right around opening day. Better than other baseball movies it captures the 'play every day' magic of the baseball season.

Amelie - One of the most charming movies ever made. I don't know what time of year the movie is supposed to be set in but it strikes me as a spring movie. It has that new life feel of springtime to it.

Bambi - Very much a spring movie. The scene with all of the young animals coming out and meeting each other marks this movie.

Wizard of Oz - Another movie that I think was on the TV each year during this month. Or at least that's the vibe that I'm remembering. Can anyone back me up on this?

Princess Bride - I'm not sure why I think of this with spring but I do. Maybe it's because of the light humorous touches throughout.

(On a side note, we really could use some more obvious spring movies . . .)
