I am more of a book girl than a movie one but I have to say there are some gems out there that I could watch day and night and never tire of. As we talk movies today, here are just few of my all time favorites.
SEX AND THE CITY – the entire series or any of the movies. I am just a Carrie Bradshaw lover and most probably, I started my first blog because I was just obsessed with her. I admired her sense in fashion, I wanted to have that true no matter what friendship with my girls, I wanted the hair and the brains. Also, I am one of those people who would love to go McDonald’s and order a portion of large fries and a Cosmopolitan. And the love …. ohhh….
I’m looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love.’
AUGUST RUSH – this movie makes me cry every time I watch it even if I already know all scenes like the back of my hand. It is the story of an 11 year old boy who lives in an orphanage and dreams of running away and finding his real parents. He is a musical prodigy and just as expected, both his mother and father are talented musicians. It is a very sugary fairy tale with the always dreamed happy ending.
I don’t need to mention that the soundtrack is absolutely mesmerizing and I never stop listening to it, lots of times while I write.
DIRTY DANCING – OK. This is actually a movie I have seen over three hundred times and know all lines even in my sleep. I remember the 90s and just how every girl was dreaming of Patrick Swayze and learning to dance just like that.
I was a teenager and we had a JVC video player and my parents recorded Dirty Dancing and Pretty Woman on the same tape. Bad luck made it that the final dance was cut because the tape was just three hours long. I was watching it and every time the dance came I would start jumping off the sofa, annoyed that I cannot proper watch it. Later on when we had access to DVDs and the movie could have been watched on TV I was the happiest girl out there being able to see it all. And the music ….. tell me you don’t like all songs in Dirty Dancing?
GONE WITH THE WIND – first of all I am a massive fan of the book itself and have read it few times already but I have to say that the movie never disappointed.
Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh made history in 1939. Their talent and beauty gained the world’s hearts and the movie soon became one of the best in history. The love between Scarlet O’Hara and Rhett Butler is just so powerful and incredible. The reason why it’s so popular is because it was one of the first technicolored films ever created by Hollywood. The movie also depicted a lot of issues back in the civil war such as slavery, adultery, and theft. Even if the movie would have lasted two days I would still find myself binge watching it from time to time. It is just so powerful and emotional that it never seizes to make me shed some tears.
THE TERMINAL – I love Tom Hanks in all movies but The Terminal is just such an incredible masterpiece.
The picture is inspired by the true story was of Merhan Nasseri who lived at Charles DeGaulle Airport from August 1988 to August 2006, when he was taken from the terminal due to an illness. It is an exceptional, inspired and most definitely underrated movie. As soon as you watch it you never forget it
There are so many incredible movies I can always watch happily but probably I am a romantic at heart. I have to mention THE GODFATHER – absolutely genius; a masterpiece of all times. I also need to mention The Dark Night; The Shawshank Redemption; Inglourious Basterds, Troy and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
