Top Ten Movie Blogfest!

Major props go to Alex J. Cavanaugh for hosting yet another epic blogfest! It's time for the



Here's my picks-

10.  Ocean's 11 - George Clooney, Matt Damon, and Brad Pitt. Very Clever and lots of eye candy.

 9. National Treasure - the tension is amazing. I'm still on the edge of my seat when I watch this. 



8. A Walk to Remember - This was my first experience with Nicolas Sparks and it stuck with me for a long time. I still listen to the soundtrack.









7. Never Been Kissed - I love Romances. I love Micheal Vartan. Nuff Said.







 


6. Austenland - I did a review of this one here. I plan on seeing it as soon as it comes out in theaters and I WILL own a copy for my home





 
5. Pride and Prejudice - I've spent many a sick day in bed watching all six hours. Love me some Darcy.









4. Spider-man - This is the only movie that I've seen more than three times in a theater. I had a huge crush on Tobey Maguire in High School. And duh, Spider-man!









3. The Princess Bride - The most quoteable movie on the planet earth. The genius of the writing is bar none.









2. The Lake House - A mailbox that sends letters through time? I  really need to get me one of those. 










1. Hitch - I don't what it is about this movie. Maybe it's one part Will Smith and one part Kevin James mixed with a whole lot of romantic and funny. Still my favorite movie of all time.

Donna K. Weaver said...

Fun selections! Since I'm off work today I may need to actually do this hop.

Shell Flower said...

OMG, A Walk to Remember is so good! And P&P is a MUST on any sick day ;)

Elise Fallson said...

Oh I so agree with you about Micheal Vartan. (; Princess Bride is on my list as well, love that movie.

M.J. Fifield said...

Ocean's Eleven is very clever. I think it's probably my favorite heist film, and I love a good heist film.

And how can anyone not love The Princess Bride?

Carolyn V said...

Great choices! I like every movie you posted!!! Awesome!

ilima said...

Great list! Except now I'm sooo jealous you've seen Austenland!

Blue Skies said...

Yes to Micheal Vartan -- but really the love affair for me is Alias. Great choices!

Jessie Humphries said...

I dig it! I loved Hitch too. I love that part where he kicks her in the head when he's trying to get on the seado. hahaha too good!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

The Princess Bride just missed my top ten. Yes, the whole film is quotable.
Thanks for participating in my blogfest!

Rena said...

Inconceivable!

Okay, I love the princess bride. I don't think I could narrow down my top ten movies if I had to. I certainly couldn't put them in order.

prerna pickett said...

you have great taste in movies, I loved all of those!

Hart Johnson said...

Ha! Princess Bride for the win! Also a big fan of National treasure.

Al Diaz said...

The Princess Bride is very popular! I enjoyed Hitch very much. I always appreciate a movie that makes me laugh.

nutschell said...

What an awesome list! I loved Lake House, Hitch, National Treasure and Never Been Kissed, too!

Hildie McQueen said...

Cool list, I've never seen Austenland, I'll have to check it out!

Nicole said...

Hitch is such a cute movie! And I agree - Princess Bride is THE most quotable movie ever. :)

Jeff Hargett said...

ah, finally, a list that doesn't overlap mine at all. In fact, I've only seen a couple of these. Having noted that a couple have appeared on multiple lists today, I'll have to check them out now.

Adriana Dascalu said...

I've seen and loved evry single one of these. Did you see the 2005 pride and Prejudice? I like it best because is more truthful to the book!

VikLit said...

THE VARTAN!! How could I forget him and Never Been Kissed? LOVE Drew and Vartan in it! Want to rewatch it now.

David P. King said...

So they're bringing Austenland to theaters, there's going to be a date-night, for sure. Great list! :)

M. J. Joachim said...

A walk to remember made me cry...you've listed some goodies here!

Kathleen said...

I STILL haven't seen the end of A Walk to Remember even though I've seen every other part a gajillion times. I think I need to have a date with Netflix tonight... And watch your entire list=)
Great picks!

Hitch is on of those movies I can watch a thousand times. It's such a clever movie. Great list.

Jay Noel said...

I LOVE Hitch! Love the scene where Hitch is trying to teach Albert how (not) to dance.

LD Masterson said...

I haven't seen all of these but the ones I have are great.

Krista McLaughlin said...

I love your list! Those are some great movies! Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth is definitely worth watching 6 hours. I forgot to add the Princess Bride - inconceivable!

Trisha F said...

Love me some Darcy too - glad you chose the Colin Firth version. :) Love the Princess Bride too, and Sandra Bullock movies.

Robin said...

Great pics. The Princess Bride is the best. Also, I LOVE Hitch, now I'm itching to see it again.

I watched the Lakehouse, but it was over my head. And glad to know someone is as excited about Austenland as I am.

Carrie-Anne said...

I've only seen #7 and #4 on your list. I've heard of most of the rest of them, but I just don't see very many modern movies.

Lynn(e) Schmidt said...

This is an awesome list, although I could never get through any of the Oceans movies without falling asleep. Maybe casino robbery just isn't my thing?

Courtney Barr - The Southern Princess said...

ALL of these put a smile on my face. what a list...I love them all - well I plan to LOVE Austenland..

Samantha May said...

Love this list! Hitch especially!!

Doing the Q-Tip as I type this :D

Rhonda said...

Never Been Kisses was really a fun movie. Happy to see it on a list.

Nick Wilford said...

Nice stuff here! Seeing a lot of the Princess Bride around.

Nicki Elson said...

Austenland is going to be a movie? Yay! Glad I crawled out from under my rock for this news, hehe.

Emily R. King said...

Hitch is a fun one!

Mark Noce said...

Ok, even as a guy I admit I do like that Jane Austen one...Pride and Prejudice is hard to resist:)

Julie Daines said...

Great choices. I love Never Been Kissed too, but I was surprised to see it here. Most people don't know it--at least not as much as the other Drew Barrymore movies. And yes to Michael Vartan!

Tammy Theriault said...

so what's like one of the fewest movies with a hot and handsome cast...yeah, you guessed it...oceans 11!!!

Ashley Nixon said...

Aww! These are great movies! I'm seeing Princess Bride a lot! I'm sad because I love that movie and didn't even think about it.

"Inconceivable!"

Imogen Elvis said...

Princess Bride, Pride and Prejudice and Spider-Man. Awesome movies. I watch Pride and Prejudice when I'm sick too.

Anonymous said...

I don't really like comedies of any sort but I can admit that "Never Been Kissed" was kind of cute.

Mark Murata said...

Considering your tastes, you should watch Lost in Austen -- a successful combination of science fiction and Jane Austen. It's three hours long, and you have to be up on your Pride and Prejudice to follow it, but it's worthwhile.
