I really adore Inception and Now You See Me. They're not what you'd expect, they make you think (to this day, every time I watch Inception, I find something new that I never noticed before) and they really make you view the world a little bit differently. I like psychological movies a lot more than just pure horror/slasher/bloody pulp movies, so anything that catches me off-guard and makes me really think about it catches my attention.
Sed-me, you will probably laugh, but I am such a romantic and I LOVE romantic comedies. My absolute favorite is Pretty Woman. I can't tell you how many times I've watched that film, and just writing about it now makes me want to see it again. I love any movie with Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock or Drew Barrymore, On the serious side I love Jane Austen and Sense and Sensibility. …and then I have to mention Forrest Gump and The Sound of Music…but the list goes on and on.
A list of those I love and will watch over and over:
Arsenic and Old Lace The Green Mile Sweet Home Alabama The Princess Bride Armageddon Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Shaun of the Dead Legally Blonde Clueless Big Forrest Gump Good Will Hunting Constantine The Bourne Supremacy Walking Tall The Rundown Dave Becket A Man For All Seasons The Sound of Music Book of Eli Crimson Tide
Shine, starring Geoffrey Rush (1996) as pianist David Helfgott. The film moved me deeply. It's a story of a man who became unable to do his life's work, having suffered a nervous breakdown... which affected his adult life for many years. Finally, he received the love and compassion he needed to resume his passion. The film received an Academy award for Best Actor in 1997.
The Shawshank Redemption. Damn near everything about that film is perfect and engrossing and memorable. I don't even care that it's a slow burner and it's over two hours long--I get so wrapped up in the characters and the story every time, and it always manages to hit home with its key scenes. Absolutely brilliant film.
If anyone's curious, I keep a Top 10 list on my profile page, so I can gush about something else you might not have seen~
Sed-me, I haven't seen Far and Away, but yes, I loved Apollo 13. With all of the writing that I do, I am quite behind in my movies. I'm writing the sequel to my first novel and about to send it to my publisher so I'm not getting to watch movies right now. When I finish this, I will get myself back on target because I LOVE movies.
Mr. White male/female, LOOK OUT. Black teens (Eric Holder's people) have invented a new game. It's called the 'Knockdown Punch.' It works like this:A group of black teens (3 to 15) decide they gonna...
I was wondering why there were only 20 page views on two of awordlover's newest hubs and I just found out why. The same day they were published, they were copied to the following website. I just got done...
Just thought I'd get a jump on the MSM. Many right-leaning reporters are already saying if Obama shows up tonight, the left will declare him as the ultimate, supreme, audacious, awesome, comeback winner. lol
