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.
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.
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.
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.
Another dystopian movie which takes place in 2013; global society collapses and nuclear war has crippled civilization.
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!
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?
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.
So many films I love here! Harry Potter made my list, too. It's so hard to pick just ten!ReplyDelete
Red Dawn... good movie. I remember watching that years ago and wondering if it could really happen. Haven't seen it for a while.ReplyDelete
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!!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
i think the film "the postman" was so underrated...ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Fun list-my favorites would have to be Red Dawn (definitely a nostalgia factor going on) and I am Legend.ReplyDelete
HARRY POTTER. I picked that one too. And Reign of Fire. So wonderful. I should have had that one on mine.ReplyDelete
Transformers! I almost forgot about those movies. I liked reign of fire too. Great picks!ReplyDelete
Great choices. I like I am Legend and Troy and of course, I love Dawn of the Dead! :)ReplyDelete
So much awesomeness here, and congrats on the joint blog effort! :)ReplyDelete
I've never heard of Rescue Dawn, but I may have to check it out.ReplyDelete
Great list :)
I enjoyed Transformers very much too. Troy and Harry Potter are great. :)ReplyDelete
great picks! Still have to watch Dawn of the Dead though.ReplyDelete
War of the Worlds scared the crap out of me! I practically broke my poor son's hand, I squeezed it so hard!ReplyDelete
I HEART Reign of Fire - though I hated what happened to Gerry Butler's character. :-(ReplyDelete
What a great set of choices!ReplyDelete
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).ReplyDelete
Shannon at The Warrior Muse
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.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
The Postman doesn't get enough credit. Great list.ReplyDelete
Reign of Fire! Such an underrated film.ReplyDelete
Thanks for participating in my blogfest.
D'aww, Reign of Fire. Such a bad film. lol My mom loves dragon movies, too, though. They are cool.ReplyDelete
The Postman was an awesome movie,few people ever list that one.ReplyDelete
Reign of Fire was a seriously under appreciated film!!!ReplyDelete
And I'm headed over to the new blog right now! :)
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
I still have to see some of the movies you listed.ReplyDelete
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
Some great movie choices!ReplyDelete
I think most people wish for luck in many aspects of their lives.
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
Good variety here... actually I've not seen any except for I Am Legend! Full to bursting with recommendations!ReplyDelete
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
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
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".ReplyDelete
