A Few Of My Favorite Movies

I thought I'd also share some of my all-time favorites!

The 'Burbs A: This is one of my favorite comedies! Tom Hanks does an excellent job! It's all about how crazy people can get when they're living in the suburbs! New neighbors move in next door and everyone starts suspecting them of murder, especially after an elderly neighbor disappears mysteriously. All the neighbors band together to try and gather evidence! Corey Feldman adds an awesome element to the movie as the stoner teen across the street that spies on everyone else! It's hilarious and will keep laughing through the entire movie!

Pride and Prejudice (Keira Knightley version) A+: This is my favorite rendition of Jane Austen's classic. I felt that the movie filled in a lot of blanks from the book, the sort of blanks I imagined while reading her book! Keira Knightley is an excellent Elizabeth Bennett and Matthew McFadyen shines as Mr. Darcy. The supporting cast is just as superb! And the musical score is amazing! I bought the soundtrack and listen to it regularly! This is one I watch over and over again!

Casino Royale A: OK, I have never read any of the Ian Fleming books on James Bond, so I'm not quite sure on how Fleming truly portrayed Bond in his books. But I'm an action-flick girl! I love the fighting and to me that's what a spy should be--tough! In my opinion none of the other bonds have been able to portray that. Special gadgetry is nice...but, I love my action! So this was by far, the best Bond movie ever and Daniel Craig was an excellent Bond! I know lots of you will disagree with me, but that's OK! This is my opinion and my Blog!! This movie helped me see the softer side of Bond and his motivation about why he's a walking STD! Great storyline and lots of action!

Bourne series A: By far my favorite action flicks! Incredible acting, storyline, and action/chase scenes! Matt Damon is an excellent actor and love almost everything he's in as long as it's decent. I started reading the first book "Bourne Identity" and it's very different from the movie. They definitely took a lot of liberties with the books, but since I watched the movies first they're still my favorites. Good movies!

I guess that's good for now! I'll add more later! I have a large library of DVDs of all my favorites and would love to share them with you! Movies rock!
