Hullo one and all! The Time of the Tags is upon us, apparently... you remember that in my previous post, Hannah tagged me for some super fun questions. Well, I just discovered that Rachel over at Sesquipedalian Dreamer tagged me for another blogging game! This time, I just list my favorite movies! (This is going to be tough because I have a surplus of favorites.)
1. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
I love these movies because...do I really have to explain? Are we all in agreement that these are the best movies ever made? Yes? Ok. Moving on, then.
2. The Phantom of the Opera
This is a beautiful movie with a completely enrapturing story. Even if there wasn't stunning music and a classic story to go along with it, I would be satisfied watching the movie just for the gorgeous dresses. Gerard Butler, Emmy Rossum, and Patrick Wilson star in this heart-wrenching movie...I can't even say how much I love this story and movie. No matter how many times I watch it, The Phantom of the Opera never gets old.
Well, of course I have to have a superhero movie in here somewhere! Thor was quite a surprise to me. I didn't expect to like it nearly as much as I did, and I was thrilled with the wonderful acting, humor, and fantasy aspects of the movie!
4. Wives and Daughters
Who doesn't love a good BBC movie? I love the emotion in the movie, and the character of Molly. Really, there are no better actors than the British! There are many BBC films that I love just as much as Wives and Daughters such as North and South, Cranford (1 and 2), and Pride and Prejudice (Jennifer Ehl and Colin Firth version).
5. Horatio Hornblower
This is another BBC series that I simply couldn't live without, and every time I watch it I feel the irrepressible urge to yell "Fire!" Again, the acting is excellent, and the stories are wonderful.
"I congratulate you on you perspicacity, sir!"
That is a much quoted quote around our house from the episode "Fireships" :)
Those are the main movies that come to mind, and I do watch many of them with "clearlplay". Some others that I love are Pirates of the Caribbean, Alice in Wonderland, the Oceans trilogy, The Princess Bride, Tammy and the Bachelor, Star Wars and many, many more!
Now I'm supposed to tag more people. And those people are....
If ya'll don't want to participate, don't worry about it!
