Movies Movies Movies

I review a lot of movies on here, but I don't think I've ever told you what my favorite movies are. So wonder no more. Here they are, in no particular order.  The pictures are linked to the descriptions on IMDB.

What kind of nerd would I be if I didn't like Harry Potter?!
I do have a confession to make though: I haven't read the books yet,
but I have this weird thing where I try to see movies of books before reading the books,
because the book is almost always better than the movie based on it.
My favorite Harry Potter character is Luna Lovegood.

This movie is so amazing. It's one of the ultimate sci fi films.
There's so much weirdness and action. I just love it to death.
That's all I have to say about this one.

I'm not sure if you know this, but I'm a Jedi. I was Jedi knighted by one of my awesome
cousins back when I couldn't walk. The Star Wars original trilogy will always have a special place
in my heart. My brother and I grew up watching the VHS tapes of it that we had taped off of TV.
We had to fast forward through the commercials and everything.
Also I may or may not be able to play the entire soundtrack on my flute.




The first one in the series is by far my favorite.
I love time travel stuff. (Doctor Who anyone?)
And obviously I am a huge fan of sci fi.
I even have a Back to the Future shirt, and I love it.

I love this movie so much! I can play the songs on my flute.
I have a Jack Skellington tee shirt and purse.
I've stopped carrying the purse because I am a grown up, but also because it sort of is falling apart.
And I got some supplies to make some Jack Skellington jewelry : )

One of the best movies ever, in my opinion.
It's so epic and funny and adventurous and amazing.
Sometimes guys get scared away by the title and think it's
a girly movie, but once they watch it, they love it too.
You probably won't find this surprising, but some of my favorite movies are ones with
really weird female main characters. I also like movies that are really weird and artsy.
This movie fits both of those categories really well.

This movie is so wonderful in every way.
It will always be one of my favorites.
I love Tim Burton movies, the artsy weirdness is just my thing,
with just a touch of darkness thrown in for good measure.

Another crazy wonderful sci fi film.
Are you sensing a pattern yet?

Miyazaki is a movie master.
I cut my teeth on My Neighbor Totoro (not literally, of course)
and Spirited Away is even more amazing, in my opinion.
Her parents get turned into pigs and she has to
traverse a crazy world of demons to rescue them from their fate.
And the animation is fantastic.


Wow, that actually turned out to be an even 10.  I didn't even plan it that way.  My lists never have an "ordinary" number of items on them. I just add items until I'm done.  So now you know what some of my favorite movies are.  Of course there are tons more, but this is a sampling for you.

  1. The Nightmare before Christmas is awesome, yes.

    I just watched The Princess Bride for the first time a little while ago. The Prince made me watch it. It was cute.

  2. It seems so fitting for The Prince to make you watch The Princess Bride.

  3. Good picks. I LOVE Edward Scissorhands. And Minority Report is one of those crazy awesome movies that I almost forgot about... now I want to watch it again.

  4. This is the first time (ever) that I've read one of these lists, and could say that I had seen and liked each movie. Sounds like we have some similar movie tastes, although my favorite Miyazaki movie -- and one of my favorite movies in general -- is Howl's Moving Castle. It is just SO MANY kinds of wonderful. And it's got Batman! ... or at least Christian Bale. :p

    TL;DR -- You like awesome movies

  6. Lauren, you should definitely watch Minority Report again. It's such a good movie.

    Justin, I read your entire comment and yay for being movie interest twins!

  7. I like most of them and those I'm not a fan of are only because I've not seen them. I fail at movies. Star Wars 4-6, Harry Potter and Back to the Future are my faves though. Love all three of those series.
