Hmmm once again i have a few favorites.
If i know a movie is based on a book i try to read the book first. It had always been a goal of mine to read Gone With the Wind. Im not scared of large novels, i absolutely love them. I devoured Gone With the Wind. I read it whenever i gt the chance. The written language sounds more sophisicated than it is now adays. The movie is long, like 4 or 6 hours, i can't remember which. Its amazing though. To see what Scarlett goes through in her life and she always fights to remain strong. Not to mention how handsome Clark Gable is in it.
But on a rainy, gloomy day, i love to watch Across the Universe. It's a musical set to Beatles music. It's interesting to see how the director created a story using characters and interpretations of the songs. The actors sing the songs so well. Sometimes i put the dvd in like i would a much loved cd and use it for background noise.
Another movie that puts me in a good mood is Gardenstate. Zach Braff from the show Scrubs, wrote, directed, and starred in it. Its a movie i fully relate to. It's quirky but loveable. I take quotes from the movie and write them in various journals i have.
Some comedy's i love are Superbad, Zoolander,Waitress, Hot Tub Time Machine, The House Bunny and Bring it On.
Other movies are 500 Days of Summer, The Breakfast Club, Ghostworld, The Ring, The Lost Boys, Edward Sissorhands, Fight Club, Big, Star Wars, and Star Trek.
I have a weakness for musicals. As i already mentioned Across the Universe is my absolute favorite but i also love Moulin Rouge. Ewan McGregor is gorgeous in it.
He's so talented, i melt whenever he sings "Your Song." The way he looks at Satine in the movie, with so much love, is how i want a guy to look at me someday. He sees so much goodness in her that she didn't see in herself i think. It's one of my favorite love storys.
I can't conclude this blog without mentioning Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long blog. I'm going to consider it a "movie" now that it's been released on dvd. It started as just a webisode created by Joss Whedon starring Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion. If you love Joss Whedon (he created Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse...) then it's a must see. My friends and i quote and sing the songs all the time. and i mean ALL THE TIME!
