Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish are quite fond of lists.
I just love this idea because I'm a compulsive list maker and I'm always writing more.
This Week's Theme: Movies. Okay so this was an extremely difficult theme because I have a long list of all time favorite movies and picking just ten made me sweat a bit. I'll probably post the rest of my list sometime down the line. But in the meantime here's my top ten list of all time favorite movies in no particular order because I'm ready to cry because I had to cut out about 25 movies.
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King - All three movies are amazing but The Return of the King is the biggest, baddest, most emotional one of the three.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl - I've always had a thing for 1.) Pirates and 2.) Johnny Depp who always looked like a pirate to me before he became Captain Jack Sparrow. Also, Orlando Bloom and my girl crush Keira Knightley!
The Avengers - An ensemble superhero movie that was cultivated and built up with individual movies and NONE of the actors were replaced? Yes please. Plus there was a little character by the name of Phil Coulson who owned his scenes and represented all the fangirls and fanboys.
Captain America: Civil War - Ugh, it's hard to choose between Marvel movies but this one had so much going for it. It was more emotionally driven than the previous Cap films and the conflict between Tony and Steve was clearly not an easy one.
How to Train Your Dragon - This one represented and in some ways told the story of me and Mr. Pud. I couldn't NOT pick this one because as much as it makes me cry now that Pud is gone, it also is one of the best animated films I've ever seen. The feels in this one guys. It's a great film for kids and for parents to open up the conversation about not judging those who are different.
X-Men - I was a huge fan of the cartoon back in the early 90's so when the movie was announced I was so excited. I didn't know who any of the cast was except for Halle Berry and Anna Paquin. This movie started my love of Hugh Jackman.
The Lion King - Do I really have to explain this one? It's an iconic movie with amazing songs but it was the story of Simba the lion that had me glued to the theater when it came out in theaters and still has me mesmerized at 32 years old.
Pride and Prejudice - I love Keira Knightley and I loved the casting of the Bennet sisters in this movie. Yes, a lot of the book was left out but it's a movie not a documentary and most of the important scenes were included to give non-book people a feel of the story. Heck, I read the book because of this movie because I knew if I loved the movie and the book is always better than the movie then...
Singin’ in the Rain - The iconic dance in the rain is just one of the reasons I love this movie. Gene Kelly was my first celebrity crush even though he had long since passed away by the time I saw it. I actually first saw him in another movie but this one has some of the funniest scenes and of course, the best dances.
The Philadelphia Story - Katharine Hepburn was may kind of lady. A game changer and a rule breaker and she brought her sassy personality to this movie (And to the play in which she played the same role). Cary Grant and James Stewart absolutely shine as well and I can never miss a chance to watch this movie on tv even though I have two dvd copies.
