Way back in July, Skylar suggested that I make a list of my personal favorite movies. So here they are, my ten favorite movies in no particular order as of December 2015.
Stiff Upper Lips
Stiff Upper Lips is a parody of British Edwardian movies in particular Merchant of Ivory movies and that time period all together. I first saw this on Masterpiece theater and thought it was super silly. It’s super well acted, the sets and costumes are great and the humor is awesome. I quote this movie all the time, in fact my AMV editing name came out this movie.
Veer-Zaara is a Bollywood movie and it was the second one I ever watched, the first was Devdas. It’s such a lovely movie in its look, plot and characters. I know it flawed but I really love it.
Another Bollywood movie. I watched this movie late one night when I was very anxious and it calmed me right down so this movie has a calming influence on me. Again it just a lovely pretty movie.
If you want a Depressing movie about China in WWII here ya go. This is not like a nice movie in its plot BUT it’s so pretty. It was based on a novella and the movie gives the plot/characters so much depth without like spelling it out for you. It’s a really well done movie.
Castle in the Sky
I have talked a out this one before, I love it.
Land before Time (Original, the sequels do not exist)
This movie, this movie, sigh, it was my childhood favorite. I loved dinosaur when I was a little kid. This movie is traumatic for little ones but I love the characters and the animation is still great.
L’Amant (The Lover)
I think this movie is like a guilty pleasure for me. It doesn’t have a plot but it has a meaning and point. Again it’s a well done movie.
The first time I saw this one I thought I was going to hate it but I loved it. I love its humor characters and style (in parts). I love the slugs, the frogs, and Robby’s alias Millicent Bystander. I also love the mime on the cell phone.
Agian it such a beautiful movie. I love the way the film incorporated Frida’s artwork into the style of the movie.
GAH This Movie is way too pretty, I love it.
So yeah those are some of my favorite movies. I actually watch a lot more TV shows (and anime) than movies like as go to things or just in general. I need to watch more movies.
Here some Honorable Mentions,
Gone with the Wind (I love Scarlett, I think is a great character, terrible person but great character and the costumes.)
Gloomy Sunday (Another depressing yet lovely movie, I love the ending though.)
Rebecca (I love the mood and style of this one)
Ranma 1/2 second movie Nihao My Concubine (Ranma is one my favorite anime and this was the first thing I saw of it and I was confused but I still love it)
Asoka (I love the music in this one and the style)
La belle et La Bete (I have talked about this one before)
Muppets Caper and Most Wanted (I love the muppets and I can’t pick between these two^^)
Lady and the Tramp/Dumbo (I dunno why love these movies as much as I do. I might do my top disney movie )
Gorgeous (I need to rewatch it because I loved when I first saw it but I can’t recall it well right now except for the Just Smile fight which was awesome)
