My Top 100 Movies (in no particular order)

28/100: Moulin Rouge!

I love this movie so much, despite the fact that the ending is highly depressing.  Somehow I still get the romantic sense of beauty in love even though we know from the beginning that she is going to die.  Ewan McGregor pulls at my heart strings the whole movie.  I totally fall in love with him, his voice is amazing, just makes me melt.  I also have cried many many times at the end of this movie.  I also love all the music so so soooo much!

27/100: Indiana Jones and the Raider of the Lost Ark/Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade

I love Indiana Jones.  He is the shit.  Professor by day, awesome ass-kicking, Nazi fighting, archaeologist by night.  These two movies in particular are beautifully crafted, with amazing stories, awesome action sequences and characters you can love!  That by the way is the main reason that The Temple of Doom is not up here, the secondary characters and even the villains are not nearly to par with these two.  Not to say I hate it, but just not the best, and not my personal favorites.  I love the strong female characters, Sallah, Brody, and of course the icing on the cake Dr. Jones Senior!! :)

26/100: Mean Girls

This is one of the most quotable movies, just another reason why Tina Fey is amazing.  I never get suck of watching it, it is comedy gold.  I cannot for the life of me decide which character is my favorite, or my favorite joke, it is just all SO GOOD!

25/100: Dragonheart

If you say that you do not like this movie, you are wrong.  This movie is such a great story.  I love the epic fantasy world that has been created.  Sean Connery is a dragon!  That in itself is amazing.  The characters are so rich and awesome, and the way that they interact with each other is so great to watch.  Einon is such an incredible villain!  When I saw he was going to be playing Remus Lupin, I was thinking they must be wrong, he is so evil….  I highly recommend this movie, for anyone who likes dragons, Sean Connery, Dennis Quaid, or just general awesomeness!

 I no longer try to change the world, dragon, I just try to get by in it

24/100: Tangled

A Disney movie after my own heart.  I would not have believed that they would be able to make a Disney movie I would love as much as the ones from the Golden Age, but this one is incredible.  I love Rapunzel as a sweet energetic personality, and seriously Flynn Rider is the BEST!!  (Zachary Levi is pretty much my favorite also) The lanterns scene makes me want to cry every time, it is so beautiful, and I am still pissed I See the Light did not win for best song!  Love everything about this movie!!!

"Now, I’m only picking up bits and pieces here, of course. Overprotective mother, forbidden road trip. I mean, this is serious stuff. But let me ease your conscience. This is part of growing up. A little rebellion, a little adventure, that’s good. Healthy, even."

RIP Lauren Bacall

Hollywood lost another one of the greats yesterday, Lauren Bacall.  Bacall was best known for her movies with Humphrey Bogart, who she eventually married.  She contiuned acting until her death yesterday at the age of 89 from a stroke.  She is survived by her three children.  She will always be remembered for her movies and for teaching us all how to whistle.

I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that.

23/100: Anne of Green Gables/ Anne of Avonlea (Anne of Green Gables the Sequel)/ Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story 

I love Anne Shirley and her romantic ideals.  I am pretty sure that I thought exactly like she did when I was a child.  Not to mention Gilbert Blythe.  Can you say “the perfect man”?!  He is just like a young Mr. Darcy, seriously it is awesome!  I love both the adventures that she has with him and the ones with all the other amazing characters that are in this series!  Everything is so wonderfully memorable!

22/100: Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along BIog

Joss Whedon makes my life happy when he does anything, and this one is freaking incredible.  Nathan Fillion is hysterical, as is NPH and everyone else in this movie!  I love me some crazy musicals!  And this is the mother load!  By the way if anyone has not watched Commentary! the Musical, they should because it is amazing!

"Now the nightmare’s real. Now Dr. Horrible is here, to make you quake with fear."

RIP Robin Williams

I really cannot believe that I am making this post.  Robin Williams passed away this morning at the age of 63 from an apparent suicide.  I do not even think I need to explain the loss that we all feel at the passing of this amazing actor.  Everyone who worked with him said he was a wonderful fun person to be around, the man who could make us cry from sheer emotion or sheer laughter.  Picking a favorite movie is a little too difficult and there is no way I could compare them: Flubber, Mrs. Doubtfire, Aladdin, Dead Poet’s Society, August Rush, Jumanji, Hook,  Dead Poet;s Society, adn so much more.  His rep was quoted saying “He has been battling severe depression of late.  This is a tragic and sudden loss.  The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”  Robin Williams is survived by his wife Susan Schneider and three children.

"I started doing comedy because that was the only stage that I could find. It was the pure idea of being on stage. That was the only thing that interested me, along with learning the craft and working, and just being in productions with people.”

21/100: The African Queen

I recently watched this movie, then proceeded to watch it again.  It is such a wonderful classic, between two amazing classic actors!  An adorable love story, and how often can you pull off a full and relate-able story when the cast is basically only two people in a small area.  It is no wonder that Bogie got an Oscar for this movie, I loved his character so much!  Also love the dramatic music that plays when he decides to drink Gin.  :)

What a time we’ve had, Rosie. What a time. We’ll never lack for stories to tell our grandchildren, will we?
