To be honest, it’s hard to watch any movies on repeat unless if it’s Harry Potter.
I figured these are the top 10 movies that I wouldn’t mind re-watching apart from Harry.
I’m a huge movie lover, so condensing down movies to a list is very difficult. The reason I decided to create a list is because someone had asked me earlier about what my top 5 favorite movies were. It took me a long time to think about it (actually it took quite a long time), and the more I thought about it, the list continued to grow.
That’s why I just wanted to keep track of what my favorite movies are to date. I have omitted Animated Movies and a long list of Chick Flicks (yet a few has made it onto this list) for another time and another list.
The following movies are not necessarily the most mind-blowing, academy award winning, nor the most critically acclaimed picture of all times, but these are movies that have been timeless to me and have a special place in my heart. So here they are, Michelle’s Top 10 Favorite Movies (thus far):
1. Big Fish
Big Fish is a little different from your usual Tim Burton films but it’s still licked with his familiar surreal elements. This one actually reminds me of the Notebook, if it were played out in a dream sequence throughout the entire film… and then realize Noah and Allie are just never going to wake up. When this film released I was completely breath taken by how well Tim Burton was able to convey all sorts of feelings and motifs through not only the acting but with every inch of the scene.
2. Midnight in Paris
I would not say this is the best written nor best performed piece in the universe, but I still loved it. I’m starting to realize that I might have a “type” for movies that I’m attracted to. Luke Wilson stars as a modern aged author in Paris with his fiance, and then a whole bunch of stuff happens. This film is fun for those who love literature and art, a fiction that welds two different eras together. Getting to see Pablo Picasso, Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Cole Porter, and all together is just really fun to watch. It’s like an Easter egg hunt throughout the movie, except instead of candy filled eggs you’re looking for some of the most influential artists of our time.
3. Mean Girls
On Wednesdays, we wear pink. This movie has capped off what it would have meant to have been in highschool during the new millenium. I also absolutely adore this cast, such amazing female actresses to ever have walked down North Shore High’s locker room halls: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Lizzy Caplan. And of course, Lindsey… oh Lindsey… truly a testament of why it is important to make smart business decisions in life.
