I'd love you to love me

I've recovered from my birthday on Saturday!!!

Just kidding, I didn't go too crazy but it was THUPER DUPER FUN! And I got some GREAT prezzies from my family. Everything has a little joke to it and I can actually use it all. I'm going to have to make a post in the future when I finally get my camera and show you all.

We got some new movies over the weekend, The Town, Its Kind of a Funny Story, and The Social Network. I strongly recommend all of them :)

So in the spirit of movies.... I give you my top 10! (in no particular order)

1. 10 Things I Hate About You- So Heath Ledger makes this movie, but all the other characters are almost as lovable. And the American high school stereotypes? Just perfect.

2. Pride and Prejudice- First of all, I LOVE period films, the atmosphere, the costumes, and, of course, the way people talk. Kiera Knightley is stunning in this movie and the love story is phenomenal. I can watch this movie over and over again.

3. She's the Man- I love Amanda Bynes in basically everything she does but this was her best and most eduring work. I have never met anyone who hasn't seen it and it seriously makes me laugh every 2 minutes. One of the funniest movies ever.

4. Never Let me Go- This so heart-renching and yet so beautiful. The cast is amazing with Kiera Knightley, Carey Mulligan and Andrew Garfield and the story itself is thoughtful and interesting. This is something I watch when I'm in a contemplative mood. It's kind of leaves you with the same feels as Atonement.

5. Star Wars (the oldest three)- My dad LOVED Star Wars when it came out, so he would make my sisters and I watch it when we were little. Originally I loved it because he loved it, but then, as I grew older I started to love it because of the familiar characters and the awesome story line. And the aliens :)
6. The Lord of the Rings (the trilogy)- Frankly, I just love the fantasy. I love the whole world that is created and I love the epic battles. Plus there are elves, which is pretty awesome.
7. The Breakfast Club- Classic 80's movie. Everyone needs to see it at least once. I always wished I could do something like this in high school but I never got in trouble so I was never in detention so I never got to meet all the cool people there ( ok I was delusional).

8. The Little Mermaid- MY FAVORITE DISNEY PRINCESS AS A KID. Seriously. "Out of the sea, wish I could be part of that world."

9 The Hangover- This doesn't even need an explanation but I'm going to give it anyway. I laugh the entire time I watch it everytime I watch it. I can watch it on repeat and still laugh. I saw it 3 times in theatres, so I was pretty much obssessed from the first time I saw it.

10. Sweet Home Alabama- Omigod, such a cute movie it gives me happy tingles everytime I watch it! Even though I have it on DVD, if its on TV I'll still watch it with the comercials. Gahh I can't get enough of Reese Witherspoon as a super Southern hillbillie turned high class New Yorker.
So thats my list. There are so many more awesome movies that I couldn't fit on this list but these are that movies I can consistantly watch over and over again.

What are your favorite movies? Do you like any of the same ones?

Fun Fact:

There are actually 9 planned films in the Star Wars series. George Lucas made 4 through 6 first, then 1 through 3 came out a few years ago. There are no plans so far to make the last three.

  4. I love the Lord of the Rings trilogy too. My favourites are Blade Runner and 5th Element. I guess I like a lot of fantasy and scifi. Oh I dint realise until I just wrote them down. Xxxx

  5. My favorite film of this list is 10 things 'I hate about you'! I love watching it when I'm a little bit down! And I don't know why but I have never seen Lord of the ring trilogy. Ummm, I think I prefer love and fashion histories! Jejeje! Thanks for your comment in my blog on tuesday! I follow you! Kisses

  6. Nice movie list! I've seen almost all of them and I agree they're good!


  7. I love '10 things I hate about you'! I could watch it any time. It has three of my favorite actors in it (well ones a girl, but you get me). And yes, lord of the rings is pretty awesome :D
