Um... idk, I'm listening to opera music, and a specific song came on and it reminded me of a movie...
SO!
What movies do y'all really like?
Are there any that you recommend people watch because WOW THAT'S A GOOD MOVIE THO???
What movies are your guilty pleasure movies?
Anything like that! :DDD




Fifth Element is one of those movies that I was raised on as a kid (and is the movie that this song made me think of), and I just... love??? I've heard people don't like this movie and I honestly cannot fathom why because I just love everything about it???


Emperor's New Groove is the movie that I know almost every line to. I can start of the entire intro and just keep going. I don't know the latter half of the movie pretty well, but this is one of those movies that I just cannot stop quoting because it's so funny. This is my feel-good movie that I watch when I'm stressed out because it's difficult to be mad / sad when I'm spending all my energy saying every line of the movie with the movie lmao


Alien: Covenant isn't one of those movies that I super adore, but it has aliens in it, and I LOOOVE the xenomorphs and backbursters (oh my god I forgot what the white ones are called I'M A SHAM! YEARS OF ACADEMY TRAINING WASTED), and they are my children I love them so much you don't understand.


Also, Pirates of the Caribbean because I mean, obviously.
I'm weak for Barbossa okay shutup

Fifth Element is great. People who don't like it are incorrect.

For me, movies depend wildly on my mood but there are some I can watch all day every day.

In Bruges is one of those. Not for those who can't handle violence or profanity but it is both laugh out loud hilarious and dark/depressing as all hell.

The Raid and The Raid 2 are both phenomenal action movies. The first one is more nonstop action and the second is a lot longer and packs in some story but the fight scenes in both are astounding. Iko Uwais is just...there are not words. I can't wait for the third one.

And a few favorites from last year just in a list in no particular order.
The Shape of Water
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Logan
Blade Runner 2049
Thor: Ragnarok
Wind River


So anyway I could go on forever about this so I'll stop now!

Anastasia (MY FAVORITE movie.)
Secretary (SUCH a sexy but sometimes hilariously crazy movie.)
Coco (MADE ME BAWL)
Zootopia
Atlantis: The Lost Empire

Chocolate is pretty great as well!

I maintain though that if you can watch the last fight in Raid 2 without sympathy exhaustion by the end you aren't human.

Okay but like, Once upon a December is never not a good song tbh

also, I need to rewatch Atlantis, I haven't seen it in forever, and the fact that I haven't drawn Kida is a literal tragedy


Hercules is always good because gosh dangit it Gospel Truth isn't my absolute jam okay

Princess Bride! (No Storybook Romance totally wasn't our first dance song at our wedding >.>)
Wreck-It Ralph (My son laughs his head off every time Calhoun smacks the shit out of Felix.)
Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005) (That look on his face when she falls from the rafters gets me every time, so you can shut up.)
Willow (Cause Warwick Davis is THE BEST! I will fight you!)
Pride and Prejudice (The 1995 BBC miniseries. So what if it's not technically a movie? Colin Firth is so hot coming out of that pond the brits build a statue to commemorate it!)

I'm sure I'll think of ten million more once I go to bed tonight.

I knew I'd think of more the moment I hit reply. Here's some oldies for you young'uns to look into!

Bedknobs and Broomsticks (Angela Lansbury? Yes, please.)
My Fair Lady (I would go gay for Audrey Hepburn in a heartbeat.)
Arsenic and Old Lace (I laughed so hard. Seriously. Check it out. Cary Grant's comic timing is god like.)
The African Queen, The Lion in Winter, On Golden Pond (Seriously, just go watch everything Katharine Hepburn ever did. The woman was a gem and there will never be another like her.)
Pretty much all the Road movies with Bob Hope and Bing Crosby, but specifically The Road to Morocco and The Road to Singapore

My mom loved old movies so we would watch them together all the time. It makes me sad sometimes that even people my own age haven't seen some of these gems!

I knew I liked you for a reason tho tbh

My "Dad's Movie" growing up was Princess Bride (well, that and Matrix cause he used to look like Keanu Reeves lol). I love that movie <3 Robin Wright is yes

I literally audibly gasped when you put Mr. & Mrs. Smith because I am honestly furious that I didn't put it myself???
One of my all time favorite movies, I just -squeals-
I've honestly been dying to do a Mr. & Mrs. Smith type RP for about a week now with Shyael because hnnnnngh

WhathaveyoudonetomeIcan'tstop!

Soap Dish (ZOMG Kevin Kline!)
The Road to El Dorado (ZOMG Kevin Kline AND Kenneth Branagh!)
Much Ado About Nothing (1993, Denzel does Shakespeare like a god. Keanu Reeves does it so bad it's hilarious.)
Stranger than Fiction (I usually hate Will Farrel but he's genuinely good in this and Emma Thompson is the shit, as always.)
Tropic Thunder (I didn't even realize that was Tom Cruise until someone told me. Like holy shit.)
The World's End (Simon Pegg and his gang at their absolute finest and the script is just...it's just a thing of beauty the likes of which the world may never see again.)
Kung Fu Panda 2 (Gary Oldman is the badassest peacock the world will ever see. I don't care that isn't a word.)

Shape of the water seemed a good movie, what was it about exactly?

Alright, DnDMama has me wanting to put more down lmao

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure (again, Keanu Reeves)
Be excellent to each other.

Lion King / Lion King 2 - Okay but listen to me, aside from having a wonderful soundtrack, Kovu and Scar tho

The Kingsman / 2 - I mean guys being super spies in well tailored suits is good enough for me, but they added Colin Firth and I am WEAK for Colin Firth okay shutup don't judge me
Also, the cinematography on those fight scenes is phenomenal and you can't convince me otherwise though OKAY

Flubber because I grew up on this movie and also Robin Williams

Aladdin because Genie made that entire movie because, again, Robin Williams

Oliver and Company - My grandparents had a van when I was younger that had a TV and a VHS player, and every so often we'd drive over to NM to visit some estranged grandparents and I literally just watched this movie on repeat the entire ride over.



EDIT: HOW COULD I NOT ADD THIS???
John Wick / John Wick 2 because this entire movie is so aesthetic I LOVE IT WHAT???

I guess I should add Matrix and not just mention it since, again, my dad's movie growing up lol

Granted, I haven't seen it (another literal tragedy within this post of my own doing), but from what I understand, a fish-man is captured or created by the FBI and a deaf or mute lady ends up saving him but they also fall in love???

Again, haven't seen it so I could be wrong, BUT I WANT TO SO BAD

I've seen it. That's pretty accurate but it also has a lot of really interesting subtext about people with disabilities, women and men in general but specifically in the 50's, 'The American Dream' as an institution as opposed to the ideal, sex and masturbation, homosexuality and, of course, love no matter the boundries.

Edit: He is captured, not created. She is mute, not deaf.

And while I'm here...

Bruce Almighty (Jim Carrey is funny!)
The Truman Show (Jim Carrey is earnest!)
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (Jim Carrey is sad...damn.)
Clueless (Let's just be clear, I love Jane Austin all her incarnations)

I've only seen The Truman Show once, but god it was so good! It was years ago though, I'm going to add that to my 'to watch' list lol
Jim Carrey is wonderful. <33

So on that note!
Ace Ventura
