Glory's top ten Movie picks
Prepare to laugh. I will be giving you Glory's top ten movie picks. Why would I do such a thing? Because Alexandra Heep told me to.
And why would I listen to her? Well, better than listening to the voices in my head. They keep hounding me to write their stories and really, I just don't have time to do them all at once. And yet I have time for this list...well, I never said I actually made sense, now did I?
There ya go! Never promised you a rose garden either...I did however promise one to myself--Thanks to Julie I have one now!
Anyway.... On to the list!
#1. The Philadelphia Story- this has to be one of the funnest ~sidebar: Is that a real word? Must consult dictionary. It is! End sidebar~ Katherine Hepburn movies there is, and that's saying something! She's maddeningly human, witty and snarky --before snarky was even in vogue-- in this film and with such great co-stars-- Gary Grant, Jimmy Steward and the adorable Virginia Weidler as her smart-alec little sister makes this totally delightful, mad-cap fun.
#2. The Princess Bride- If you've never seen this, well, one question: What is wrong with you? This is such a cute and hilarious modern day fable with tons of quotable quotes and memorable scenes you'll want to watch over and over. If you're like other fans of this classic you'll be able to quote it word for word in no time. "Alo, my name is Indingo Montoya. You kill my father. Prepare to die!" "Good night, Wesley, sleep tight, most likely kill you in the morning."
#3. Star Trek 4: The Voyage Home- "There be whales, Cap'n!" This is such a funny romp through the universe with the aging crew of the original Starship Enterprise--the fact that the Enterprise was blown up and they were actually using a captured Romulin ship is too long a story to explain just now-- that you have to wonder why it took them so long to figure out they had to get back down to earth to make us laugh this much!
#4. Pride and Prejudice- The six hour one with Jennifer Elhe and Colin Firth is the most accurate to the book, and so I like it best.
#5. Stranger than fiction- Love it because as I write I can easily imagine myself as Emma Thompson's erratic character. I love her!
#6. Chocolat- It's not just about chocolate. Johnny Depp's in it. Need I say more?
#7. Beauty and the Beast- Yes, the Disney song-fest. What can I say? I love to sing!
#8. Sleepless in Seattle- I'm a hopeless romantic...that's why!
#9. It's a Wonderful life- From start to finish it tugs at the heart and I just love that.
#10. While you were sleeping- A lonely girl in search love finds instead a kooky family and then love... what could be better?
That's my picks. What are yours?
