Movies

These are movies I’ve seen. Unfortunately, I can’t begin to list all the movies I’ve seen prior to starting this blog. So, I’m just going to begin with the present and move forward. Movies are listed beginning with most recently viewed.

A Good Year

Atonement – Loved it!

Letters from Iwo Jima

Tenacious D

Zodiac

The Holiday

Polar Express

The Bee Movie – loved this one!

Charlotte’s Web

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

Creature Comforts– the first season and “Merry Christmas Everyone” – love, love, love Nick Park and his claymation!!

All the King’s Men (2006) with Sean Penn, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Anthony Hopkins

The Prestige

The Last King of Scotland

Apocalypto

History Boys

Man of the Year

The Pursuit of Happyness  – The plot departs a bit from the book, but the point is not lost. Will Smith and his son have an awesome on-screen dynamic.

Becoming Jane – A must-see for any Jane-ite whether or not you agree with the plot as envisioned or fancied by its writers. Anne Hathaway is brilliant and James McAvoy matches her line-by-line. Too bad we don’t know more facts about Jane’s life and romance with Tom LeFroy…sigh.

The Last Kiss

Hairspray – John Travolta and Christopher Walken are quite the pair!

Bobby – I found this movie both sad and inspirational, and I strongly urge you to see it. Read my post about it.

Volver

The Bourne Ultimatum – It felt like Bond minus the cliches and the womanizing. Fantastic! Loved it! Am I the only one who remembers the original Bourne movie starring Richard Chamberlain?? It was The Bourne Identity done as a TV mini-series.

Broken Flowers

The Bourne Supremacy

The Bourne Identity

When Harry Met Sally

Happy Feet

Notes on a Scandal

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Oceans Twelve

Oceans Eleven

Little Children – This movie explores the dark side of ordinary lives – loveless marriage, secret affairs, motherhood and parenting, child molestation, and struggling with inner demons.

Flyboys – The true stories about heroes of the newborn American airforce during World War I.

Flags of our Fathers – Clint Eastwood is an amazing storyteller. What an impact this movie has. I can’t wait to see Letters from Iwo Jima.

Catch a Fire – with Tim Robbins. This movie is set in South Africa and tells the story of the freedom fighters during apartheid.

Half Nelson

200 Cadillacs -read my post

Pay It Forward – love Kevin Spacey’s performance, such talent!

Titanic – “I’m the king of the world!”

Four Weddings and a Funeral – forgot what fun this movie is

Nacho Libre

Who Killed the Electric Car

Platoon – Charlie Sheen, Willem Dafoe, Tom Berenger. Interestingly, a very unknown and almost unrecognizable Johnny Depp appears in this movie as does now Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker.

Apocalypse Now with a very young Martin Sheen and Marlon Brando and Robert Duvall who’s character is the one that says, “I love the smell of napalm in the morning. Smells like victory.”

The Queen with Oscar-winner Helen Mirren
