fav movies

Post by amanda-renee on Wed 28 Nov 2007, 5:34 pm

ok so my movie taste is pretty much chick flicks, romantic comedies, and musicals so basically if it has a good soundtrack it's a good movie.

fav's are wizard of oz, mary poppins, chitty chitty bang bang, bedknobs and broomsticks, willy wonka and the chocolate factory, sound of music, singing in the rain, summer stock, anchors aweigh, take me out to the ball game, on the town, any elvis movies, mighty ducks trilogy, 50 first dates, the wedding singer, the notebook, ghost, my best friends wedding, pretty woman, yeah and heaps of others.

I'm thinking Billy Elliot is a common favourite amongst us all!! It's brilliant!! Very Happy

And I can watch horror movies... only my eyes are shut throughout most of the movie and then I end up having nightmares Neutral

Who is going to go and see the movie PS I Love You, when it comes to the big screens, I am not sure when it begins, but it sounds good? It has Gerry Butler in it (that in itself is reason enough to go- for me anyway), Harry Connick Jnr just to name a couple.

It is official, my new fave movie is PS. I Love You. Omg is Gerry hot or what!!!!!!! His beautiful accent makes me melt. He plays an Irishman in the movie, even though he is Scottish.

I want to see it again and I will definitely purchase the DVD when it comes out.


I found it rather surprising that HC jnr doesn't sing in it at all, but I loved the performances of both Hilary and Gerry. The guy who plays William is not half bad either, I love his dimples.


There is a book too, I have seen it in K-Mart, if anyone is interested- it is about $22 there or at least it was when I saw it, the stocktake sales may have lowered the book price somewhat.

I haven't seen P.S I Love You yet, but hope to see it soon.
I saw Hitman a few weeks ago which I loved! I can't wait for that one to hit Australian stores, so I think I'll order it in from the states ;)

oops a double posting.Sorry.


Anyway I was watching the movie De-Lovely the other week when it was on tv, after the Carols in the Domain, it was on Channel 7. It is a movie about Cole Porter and during the movie he sings a little of "It's Alright With Me" whilst he is seated at the piano.

That is the movie that has cameos in it from Robbie Williams, Sheryl Crow, Mario Frangoulis and Lara Fabian just to name a few. Another movie that I personally love- but first time I had ever gotten to see it- pity about the late timeslot of it though.

You need tissues for this movie, just like you do for PS. I Love You.

lol! It's hard to choose just a few isn't it?!
I still haven't seen P.S I Love You but hopefully I will before it finishes at the cinema. My sister saw it yesterday and she said it was fantastic.
I went to the movies yesterday and saw I Am Legend...very good movie!! I didn't think I'd like it because I'm not really a fan of Will Smith, but he was great in this one! Definitely worth seeing.

I cannot understand why the stupid movie critic gave PS I Love You, just one star, it was wonderful, obviously not his kind of genre, but if we all listened to the critics and didn't go to the movie, well we would be missing out. I was always going to see PS anyway, no matter what. I am not much of a movie goer, it could be ages before anything sparks my interest enough to go, I am more the sporting events and music events kind of girl, I know more about sports and music, than I do about movies, I would be the last person you would need on your team on a movie trivia night. However because it has been so hot here recently, I have been to the cinema twice in the past couple of weeks, firstly to see Gerry and Hilary in PS and last Thursday I went in to see McDreamy in Enchanted (Yes I am a Greys Anatomy watcher, hence the McDreamy reference) and I do plan on going to see 27 Dresses with Katherine in it soon.

I never listen to critics, mostly I think it's their own personal opinion anyway! What's the point? I am obsessed with movies and always see something at least once and give it a go, unless it's a genre I have no interest in. lol...but then again I still seem to sit through them.
I went to see Enchanted yesterday. It was really great how they did it like your typical 'Disney' movie lmao James Marsden was hilarious in this, I think he played the part of prince Edward really well! ... Do I sound like a critic now? lol Oh well let's give it 4 stars ;)
Yvone, 27 Dresses was also good. I have a thing for James Marsden now I think!! He is funny in this one too, and Katherine Heigl is one of my favourite actresses. (Loved her in the tv show Roswell) I'd give this one 4 stars too lol

I read "PS I love you" a couple of years ago. I really enjoyed it. At the moment we watch a movie each Saturday with our kids. So we tend to see a lot of kids movies.
My favorite movies are

Grosse Point Blank
Frequency
Its a wonderful life
Shawshank redemption
National Treasure
Billy Elliot
Love Actually
Small Soldiers
The Sting
Singing in the Rain

When I was a kid they made a movie about 3 kids who got lost in the bush (happened near here) one of my mums best friends played Mrs Duff and one of my best friends older sisters played Jane Duff. We saw it at school. I believe it was shown Victoria wide, and in the cinema was the girl who played Jane. It was a weird feeling. It was not a great movie but the story always stuck with me and I can still remember it clearly.

Foreign movies

Post by Angeo on Wed 16 Jan 2008, 1:09 pm

Hi All,
I've been meaning to post here for a while that I saw Atonement a few weeks ago and loved it. Especially captivated by James McAvoy and I must admit I have been spending a bit of time watching clips of him on YouTube just to hear his Scottish accent
Your pic
'Bagpipes yeah!'

Favourite movies that come to mind are nearly all foreign. It might be more to do with the atmosphere of watching them during the Perth Fringe Festival, on balmy nights under the stars and amongst the rustling trees of the Sommerville auditorium at Uni of WA, after a picnic with a few friends and a few glasses of cab. merlot . . .

To Live (Chinese) with the extraordinarily beautiful Gong Li


Jean de Florette (French) Gerard Depardieu, Yves Montand, Daniel Auteuil - legends


I also loved the sequel to this, Manon de Sources.

Babette's Feast (Danish - I think) a warm and fuzzy gastronomic experience


Amongst others also, Monsoon Wedding, Bend it Like Beckham, Chicken Run (Nick Park Animation). Favourite Aussie movies: My Brilliant Career with a young Sam Neill and Judy Davis and Oscar and Lucinda (both Gillian Armstrong, director).

I'm taking the kids to see Alvin and the Chipmunks today


Razz
