Let's never come here again because it will never be as much fun.

oh Friday, I am sooo delighted to see you! i feel so behind on life. my schedule next week is not as intense, thank God!

i was pretty excited about this week's Fill in the Blanks. Movies... they are life's greatest escapes. Below is one high on my que.

1. My absolute favorite movie of all time is "Braveheart." It's the one movie i wished i had seen on the big screen. It's such a beautiful film (and not just because of Mel Gibson) .

2. My favorite movie as a child was "Adventures in Babysitting"- me and my seesters watched it all the time! My brother Marco said he would put it on for us when he had to watch us.

3. The best movie quote ever is "Meet me in Montauk..." for everything it stood for in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind .

4. My favorite actress is Penelope Cruz, and not just because i call her my "girlfriend" but because she really is incredibly talented. Obviously we saw that in Vicky Christina Barcelona, but i loved her in Elegy & Don't Move. My favorite actor is Johnny Depp! Gorgeous & so talented. (though my first celebrity crush when i was 10 was Kevin Costner & i've always been a huge fan of Robert Downey Jr.)

5. The movie I could watch over and over is "Love Actually" - such a feel good movie with solid acting in the fun (Emma Thompson- brilliant) .

6. My favorite movie genre is indie (sundance anything) / foreign and then the good ole chick flicks .

7. A movie I'd like to watch this weekend is "Julie & Julia." I can't believe i still haven't seen it .

Play along over at Lauren's. I love films, so I can't wait to see what you love! (if you have a must-see movie, leave it below in the comments?)

oh Braveheart.... one of my all time favs... and you know how i feel about the others. xoxo

Brandi said...

I'm so excited you're seeing Julie & Julia this weekend! One piece of advice though -- make sure you have a delicious meal in front of you. That movie needs to be shown beside a buffet.

where the wild things are

Julie and Julia is lovely!

ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING! I think you might be my soulmate. Just sayin'. I looooved that movie when I was little and always secretly delighted when she gets all badass and says "don't fuck with the babysitter!!" haha

eQ said...

ooooh this is fun! I am going to play along.

Got Ron started on Dexter. It was a deal, I have to watch The Wire (his all time fav series) and he'll watch Dexter.

Anna said...

Love Actually is in 1 of my top 5 movies of all time! so amazing and beautiful the way it tells the truth about all aspects of love... just lovely! and probably my number 1 (and a total must see! especially when i'm/you're having a shitty day) the Birdcage! it always manages to make me laugh and make me feel good! if u havent seen it yet! then what are u waiting for! lolz

- Iza

feel free to google the birdcage first, i don't want u to rent it and find out its a genre/storyline that u hate hahaha

Erin said...

I want to see Julie and Julia this weekend too!

I luuuurved Adventures in Babysitting. Had forgotten all about it.

And Braveheart... "I love you, I always have, I want to marry you." Oh William Wallace... sigh...

Happy Friday! Thank goodness the weekend is finally here!

Polly said...

I watched Julie and Julia last weekend and it's SO good! If you love Penelope Cruz you have to watch Volver - it's amazing. I saw Penelope Cruz walking along the street once. It was gooood!

Micaela said...

Eye-Zuh i TOTALLY love the birdcage!!! :) you made me giggle when you said i should google it first "just incase." lol i read a book called "pages for you" and LOVED it but had to put one of those "just incases" since it was about two women falling in love lol

Erin, the BEST line from braveheart!!!!

Claire, UNTAMED HEART!!! always made me cry!!! i love the way the movie opens- how cute is marisa tomei? "my girl" made me cry too!!! such a favorite. OF COURSE we have the same taste in film as in music! x

Jennifer (thy lady), the above isn't braveheart ;) it's pictures of "lost in translation" but YES! braveheart is a MUST!

THOR! I love "Adventures in Babysitting" It was one of the only non-Hindi films my aunt had so her kids (my cousins) and I would watch it almost every weekend!

Every Little Counts said...

penelope cruz! she stole my heart in that creepy tom cruise movie- "vanilla sky", speaking of which, i still need to see the original spanish film.

and thanks for the recommendation- "don't move"- i'm pushing it up in my queue right now.
