NEW BLOG, Top 10 Favorite Movies, Express Yourself

Yes today is a BIG blogfest and Express Yourself Meme but first... a NEW BLOG ANNOUNCEMENT!!

I have mentioned it a few times before but today is LAUNCH DAY for...

Come on over to COVER GIRLS and see what 10 movies we have seen together. Don't forget to look around and follow.

 ***************************************************************************

Now to today's BIG fest! Alex is hosting Top Ten Movie Countdown Blogfest. I’m going to keep it short (haha) since I know there are tons of people to visit along this hop/fest.

Troy
I LOVE mythology! Ever since we had to study it in the seventh grade I’ve been obsessed. And this movie not only tells the great story of Troy but it has some great eye candy as well!
War of the Worlds
H.G. Wells blessed us with the original story. There is just something about this movie that I love. The sound effects from the Alien machines are eerie.
Red Dawn
Yeah, yeah, this movie is old and the CGI… well… is non-existent but I adore all the 80’s actors. Talk about original dystopian drama.
Transformers
I’m a huge fan of all the Transformers movies but my favorite would have to be Dark of the Moon. Again, alien-robot-sound-effects are like music to my ears.
The Postman
Another dystopian movie which takes place in 2013; global society collapses and nuclear war has crippled civilization.
Harry Potter
I’m a Pothead, er, I mean Potterhead all the way. But if I have to pick my fave from the franchise I’d have to go with Order of the Phoenix. Second best movie… Deathly Hallows part 2. Order and Part 2 have the top 2 best fight sequences ever!
Rescue Dawn
Not to be confused with Red Dawn. I’m a huge military movie fan and this tells a story of an escape and rescue that is emotional and invigorating.
I am Legend
We all hope to be the one who is immune to a virus which overtakes the world but do you think you can survive the loneliness? – Or the vampiric zombies?
Reign of Fire
Dragons have always been something of interest to me. Are they really legend?
Dawn of the Dead
Really? You couldn’t have thought a zombie enthusiast would leave out a zombie flick did you? I was just leaving the best for last!
What top 10 movies are you a fan of?

Express Yourself
Besides starting a new blog with Jackie we also co-host a weekly Meme and this week is no different: Do you have a lucky charm or a lucky ritual?
  • I used to play bingo a lot - yes, I know, I'm "young" and I played bingo... but I did take a troll doll and a rabbits foot.
  • I have an Angel jewelry piece that used to hang from a chain around my neck but now it hangs from a thick bracelet from my rearview mirror - a little luck while I'm driving never hurts.

  1. So many films I love here! Harry Potter made my list, too. It's so hard to pick just ten!

  2. Red Dawn... good movie. I remember watching that years ago and wondering if it could really happen. Haven't seen it for a while.

  3. Red Dawn is a classic. And Troy- whenever I watch that movie I feel convicted just for looking at it, cause everyone is so stinking hot!! LOL The fight scene between Achilles and Hector, Lord, have mercy!!

  4. I've seen the Harry Potter movies and that's about it from this list. :) You can't go wrong with those movies, especially the first one. That's my favorite one.

  5. Troy was an excellent movie! And I laughed at "alien-robot-sound-effects are like music to my ears," I know exactly how you feel, lol!

  7. I agree with your take on the fight scenes in Order of the Phoenix and Deathly Hallows Part two. Those battles just take my breath away.

  8. Fun list-my favorites would have to be Red Dawn (definitely a nostalgia factor going on) and I am Legend.

  9. HARRY POTTER. I picked that one too. And Reign of Fire. So wonderful. I should have had that one on mine.

  16. War of the Worlds scared the crap out of me! I practically broke my poor son's hand, I squeezed it so hard!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I HEART Reign of Fire - though I hated what happened to Gerry Butler's character. :-(

    ReplyDelete
  18. What a great set of choices!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I recently watched both the new and old Red Dawn, and the original will forever be the best. It's still a good movie, special effects notwithstanding, and the cast is mind-blowing. And, of course, the Transformers movies are awesome! Special effects eye candy (and the main soldiers aren't so bad, either).

  20. My husband keeps trying to get me to watch Red Dawn, but these days my list of must watch movies has become like my list of must read books, long and taking forever to get through.

  21. Nice picks! War of the Worlds doesn't get the attention it deserves. And your blog is very welcoming. I really like the soft and soothing color palette.

  23. Reign of Fire! Such an underrated film.
    Thanks for participating in my blogfest.

    ReplyDelete
  24. D'aww, Reign of Fire. Such a bad film. lol My mom loves dragon movies, too, though. They are cool.

    ReplyDelete
  25. The Postman was an awesome movie,few people ever list that one.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Reign of Fire was a seriously under appreciated film!!!

    And I'm headed over to the new blog right now! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Was DAWN OF THE DEAD the one with Simon Baker? His zombie movie was my favorite -- my characters all lived in that one! :-) I like BATTLE L.A. which most hate. Go figure. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I still have to see some of the movies you listed.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've only seen War of the Worlds and Transformers. The kind of cluelessness I have re: modern movies is the kind of cluelessness I know a lot of modern people have about the old films I gravitate towards. Just about the only modern films I seek out are foreign and/or long historical dramas.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Some great movie choices!

    I think most people wish for luck in many aspects of their lives.

  31. This list is so different from the one over at Cover Girls. It's so cool that the two of you have seen that many movies together, btw. And it's always nice to meet a fellow Pothead, I mean Potter head, hehe. Though the movies didn't make my top 10, the books definitely would.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Good variety here... actually I've not seen any except for I Am Legend! Full to bursting with recommendations!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Great list, although I admit I need to see several of this. My movie list is growing so fast with this great blog hop!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Haven't seen all of these but some of them are definitely on my wider faves list :) I Am Legend was such a tragic story but an inspirational one too.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Just dropping by from the blog hop to say you have an excellent list! I have much love for "Troy" "Reign of Fire" and "Transformers".
