44/100: The Sound of Music

Gotta love spunky Maria bringing out the good side in everyone. (except for the Nazis)  Again the story and the characters are so incredible.  Such a fun yet serious story, and I love every beautiful singing moment of it.  Julie Andrews is ridiculously incredible!

You are the twelfth in a long line of governesses who have come here to look after my children since their mother died. I trust you will be an improvement on the last one. She stayed only two hours.”

43/100: The Lion King

Arguably the best Disney movie ever made.  The complexity of this story is freaking amazing, so much deep stuff, and it only gets better as you get older.  Also Scar is an amazing villain, it was pointed out to me recently he may be the best one because he actually got what he wanted.  Not to mention Elton John and his amazing soundtrack!

Look inside yourself, Simba. You are more than what you have become. You must take your place in the Circle of Life.

42/100: Love Actually

It is so fun watching movies with multiple story lines all coming together.  This is my favorite one, the ultimate romantic comedy.  I watch it at Christmas time, and whenever because it is such a good movie!

Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere.

41/100: The Shawshank Redemption

You know how when you read a book all you want is a movie that is just taking the words and making them into pictures, exactly the way it is?  That is what Shawshank is.  The only big different that they made is that Red was supposed to be a red-headed Irish guy, but it does not make a difference to the plot and lets face it, choosing Morgan Freeman can not make you mad.  He even made a joke about it.  This is such a unique and compelling story, I love watching it over and over again!  One of Stephen King’s best!

 Yeah. The funny thing is - on the outside, I was an honest man, straight as an arrow. I had to come to prison to be a crook.

40/100: Romeo & Juliet

You want to see my romantic side?  Watch me watching this movie and quoting everything in the most flowery and dramatic way possible.  I love me some Shakespeare and this is the fist one that I memorized.  It may not be considered one of Shakespeare’s best plays, but I still love it.  This version is great.  I love the Baz Lurman one too, but there is something about this one being in the period it was meant to be set in that is just awesome. I love the costuming and every wonderful overly dramatic moment!

A glooming peace this morning with it brings. The sun for sorrow will not show his head. For never was a story of more woe Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.

39/100: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring/The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers/ The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

I mean this is one of the best adaptations of books that exists.  It raised the bar for fantasy movies everywhere.  I mean Peter Jackson did it right, I do not care if the movies are 4 hours long apiece, just get all the stuff in it that you can!  The cast is incredible and the sets are downright genius!  I mean the cinematography, the EPICNESS!!  This is the kind of thing that will live on through the ages and no one else is ever gonna be able to make another Lord of the Rings that will even come close to this one!

It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.

38/100: Grease

Gotta love this classic musical!  Even if the whole cast is obviously not in high school, it is just such a fun period piece with all the awesomeness that it should be!  When I was young I was not supposed to watch this movie so I would get up around 5 am to watch it before my parents woke up.  Also I cosplayed Frenchy, she is just my favorite, so nice and spunky!  It was one of the first musicals that I got obsessed with and I always wanted to be in a production of it!

37/100: The Mask of Zorro

This movie is so damn sexy.  A revenge story with a vigilante and so much amazing awesomeness.  Antonio Banderas and Anthony Hopkins kick all the ass.  Then of course there is the wonderful Catherine Zeta-Jones.  I wanted to grow my hair like hers ages ago just beause of the scene when her dress gets cut and you still cannot see anything haha.  Swordfighting is sexy, dancing is sexy, this movie just oozes sex!! Love it!

There is a saying, a very old saying: when the pupil is ready the master will appear.

36/100: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl/ Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest/ Pirates of the Caribbean:At World’s End

Pirates of the Caribbean is a great adventure, filled with crazy magic, crazy characters and another epic love story.  Another one with a million awesome quotes.  I love this movie and the way that it jumps the shark like a crazy person.  All the things that start happening in the last two movies in particular are nutso and I love how out of hand it gets, especially with everyone betraying each other all the time!

Me? I’m dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. It’s the honest ones you want to watch out for, because you can never predict when they’re going to do something incredibly… stupid.

35/100: Jaws

Steven Spielberg does it again!  He took a movie that could have just been a cheap thriller and turned it into a movie on the top 100 movies of all time.  The cinematography is incredible, and it has the perfect amount of fear and drama to make it something I never get tired of watching.

Back home we get a taxidermy man, he’s gonna have a heart attack when he sees what I brung him!
