I love my movies to be dramatic with just a splash of reality. I LOVE happy endings and can be quite peeved when a movie ends badly. Jeremy would laugh at me and tell me, 'it's like real life..and life doesn't always have a happily ever after'. Yeah well..I go to the movies to ESCAPE real life, not watch a remake of real life on the big screen.
The previews for the feel good, sort of girly-girl movies always intrigue me but I don't usually end up seeing them in the theatre. No, the movies that catch my interest are usually sci-fi, suspense, spy, shot em up, big boom type movies. Or I like movies that are just entertaining..not too deep..just cute and/or funny. Right now I want to see Red, Life as We Know It, Due Date. I have my eye on Skyline and Hereafter. I don't know about those two..but the previews have me curious.
But my go-to favorite movies are:
The Fifth Element. Its a little campy, but I still LOVE it. And the fact that it's a sci-fi, shot em up, big (bada) boom movie WITH a love story WWWIIITTTHH a happy ending?! Yes please.
The Count of Monte Cristo. Great story. I did read the book, its a classic but I love the action of the movie. And the casting was great.
The Matrix. The first movie is my absolute favorite. The others were just ok..as sequels tend to be. Again...sci-fi, suspense, shot em up with a love story. I'm a sucker!
Dude, Where's My Car? That's right, I love this stupid movie. Jeremy and I love to throw out quotes from this movie. AAAAnnndddd then? No and then!
