Ready, set, action!
1. The last movie you saw in a theatre, and current-release movie you still want to see.
I last saw: The Devil Wears Prada
A refreshingly fun flick! Meryl Streep lets her magnificent eyes do most of the acting and they hit home perfectly; she is a pure delight to watch. Anne Hathaway transforms from naïve ingénue to delicious fashion plate wonderfully. The gazillion fantabulous clothes, shoes, bags, and accessories that spice up the screen scene after scene are more than enough to send scintillating shivers up every shopaholic’s spine. If you’re up to your ears in work and dying for a little break, stop what your doing and see this movie NOW.
I currently want to see: Monster House
A couple of little kids stumble upon an old house that is alive and hungry. How can this not be riveting?
2. The last movie you rented/purchased for home viewing.
Meet Joe Black
I’ve seen this already but I got the DVD so I could view it again.
What is the story? Let me see….. Hmmmmm. Oh! I don’t remember!
And honestly, I don’t care.
Just watching Brad Pitt sizzle in this movie is entertainment enough for me. BwaHaHa!
3. A movie that made you laugh out loud.
There's Something About Mary
This must be one of the most ridiculously funny films ever. My husband and I were cracking up so hard inside the cinema that people were beginning to give us strange looks. Well, we thought they were the strange ones for not laughing more.
Other belly-achingly crazy movies I enjoyed are Zoolander, the American Pie series, Liar Liar, and Top Secret!
4. A movie that made you cry.
This was gut-wrenching. The gigantic lump in my throat ached the whole time and I had terrible difficulty trying to stifle my sniffles inside the movie house. By the time I left the theater, my eyes were swollen red and my date’s handkerchief was damp with tears.
To think I was not even a mother yet when I first saw it! I honestly don’t know how I can take watching this again now that I have my own son.
5. A movie that was a darling of the critics, but you didn't think lived up to the hype.
I mean, really now.
Need I say more? :p
6. A movie that you thought was better than the critics.
The Passion of the Christ
This movie was riddled with much controversy. No matter what, I personally found it powerfully moving and profoundly meaningful.
7. Favorite animated movie.
Tell me. How can anyone resist falling in love with such a darling ogre?
8. Favorite Disney Villain.
If you’re going to be bad, you might as well be REALLY bad. And Ursula from The Little Mermaid is definitely one of the baddest, most kick-ass villainesses in Disney history.
9. Favorite movie musical.
The Sound of Music
I never get tired of watching this classic over and over again. Whenever I see it, I am sixteen-going-on-seventeen again, fondly recalling my favorite things, joyfully singing along to do-re-mi and feeling the hills come alive with the enchantingly beautiful sound of music.
I also love Grease, Moulin Rouge, Chicago and Evita.
10. Favorite movies of all-time (up to 5).
Everyone should see this movie. It truthfully depicts what our world has come to, and what our world should not be and be.
Father of the Bride
The Daddy’s girl in me stirs and smiles whenever I see this film. I am very close to my father and I am reminded of our special bond every time I watch it. My Dad even gave me the DVD a few days before I got married. It will thus always be special to me.
As Good As It Gets
The script in this movie is pure genius and the acting in it simply superb.
This movie with a huge stellar cast wittingly brings to light the greatness of different kinds of love. Anyone with half a heart would be delighted.
Dead Poet’s Society
Here is poetry and humanity interwoven in a cinematic masterpiece, reminding us of what is truly important and leaving us with the overwhelming longing to “suck the marrow out of life.”
If you haven’t seen this, you must. Carpe diem!
Fellow movie buffs, I’m now tagging you: Jenni, Pam, Maite, Menchie, Arvy and Julie. You’re IT... as well as everyone else who wants to join in on the fun! Just promise to let me know what you come up with, okay? (",)
At last, the time has come for me to blog-holler.....CUT!!!
