First I did the Ten Books tag challenge, then somebody went and tagged me again– this time to name fifteen films! Well, I had to do this sooner or later, being a film student. But wth–I got tagged four times, so I think can exercise the liberty to add a bonus 5 more! (I can’t choose just 15, what is wrong with me.)
1. Pirates of the Caribbean (1-3)
Because Jack Sparrow is an excellent role-model for an 11-year-old. 2. The Lord of the Rings (all of them)
This movie kind of actually runs in my veins, I’ve memorized most of the lines by no fault of my own 3. Seeking a Friend for the End of the World
Keira Knightley and Steve Carrell are dynamic and heartwarming in this quirky pre-apocalyptic film.
A must for anyone studying film!
5. Toy Story (all of them)
Forever. And ever.
6. It’s Kind of a Funny Story This one was…wow.
7. The Orphanage
Watched this recently, and it just blew my mind…I was thinking about it for days after, and not just because it was for school!
8. August Rush
Nope, still not over it. Got the soundtrack on loop. #RIPRobinWilliams
9. The Darjeeling Limited
ALL HAIL WES ANDERSON.
10. Treasure Planet
And no, I’m not just saying this ’cause of John Rzeznik’s musical contribution.
11. Easy A
A big laugh, a good lesson, a great cast and overall, one of the films I can watch over and over again and still enjoy. In my opinion, Emma Stone’s best role!
12. How to Train Your Dragon (both)
The one movie that deviated very far from the books on which they were based, but came out even more spectacular. 13. Stoker
Hauntingly psychological, every frame like a painting, with a plot that keeps you up even after the flight attendants tell you to put down your window shades and sleep.
14. Some Kind of Wonderful
Wonderful, to say the least. John Hughes is a master at capturing the generation-transcending issues of teenhood. z
15. My Neighbor Totoro
This movie is just everything ok
16. Harry Potter (all 7)
No list is complete without this!
Great cinematography, a riveting script, and killer soundtrack!
18. Star Wars (4-6) It has long been my greatest aspiration to be a Jedi. 19. Stuck in Love A poignant and quirky film that speaks to me as both a writer and a human being. (also, Logan Lerman.)
And just when you wondered if I was gonna add it…
20. Marvel’s The Avengers
