So, what's this about? There's a great getting-to-know-you-type meme hosted by There's a Book that I thought would be great. I think it's so much fun to learn more about each other. I can't think of a better way to build a strong community of bloggers who are more than just fellow bloggers – fellow bloggers who also are friends! The current topic is about movies.
Tell us about your favorite movie and why. If you can't pick just one, give us your top five!
I don't know if I can pick one. Or even five. I have eclectic taste in movies (at least I think I do), and there are so many that I love for so many different reasons. But, I'll give it a shot.
I think this is probably my all-time favorite movie. I love it. Lots of action, romance, and even humor. The story is heartbreaking, exciting, hopeful, then heartbreaking again. And to think it's based (probably loosely) on a real person. Amazing. I love how it goes through the whole gamut of emotions!
2. Fight Club
This is one of my favorites of all time, too. I think this is masterfully done. I never saw the end coming. Not once. LOVE this movie!
3. He's Just Not That Into You
I recently saw this and was blown away! I had no idea what I was getting into, but I LOVED it! It filled me with warm fuzzies, and I'm not gonna argue with that! ;-) My husband was out of town when we had this (via Netflix), so I told him that if he wants to see it then we're gonna buy it. I'll definitely see this again and again and again ...
Maybe this one is my all-time favorite. I dunno! LOL What I do know is I love this one, too. Again, the whole gamut of emotions. From excited to sad to happy to hopeful to disappointed to sadder than before. And Russel Crowe was amazing in this movie. This is one I own and have been pining for the extended edition! (Anyone know if that's on Blu-ray yet?)
5. The Princess Bride
Does this really need any explanation?
So, what about you? What are your favorite movies? If you wanna link up, check out the latest post.
