This Week: As Promised
Sideways. Wonderful movie you should enjoy with a glass of red wine.
Love this movie! Lasse Hallström's best.
My beloved Mike Myers as Austin Powers
My favorite of the favorites
Last week I promised you guys a post about good movies. It can always be interesting to see if we have any movie favorites in common.
I cannot say that Peter and I are off to the movies too often these days. When we have a "date" nowadays we actually prefer going to a new restaurant we have not visited before instead of running off to the movies.
But movies are movies and there are always DVDs.
I will list some of my favorite movies of all times here. See if you agree, or dis-agree with me.
Every time I get the question: what is your favorite movie? I'll always answer:
¤ When Harry met Sally. I LOVE this movie. I think it is the ultimate movie in so many ways. It is hard to say how many times I've seen it. Countless.
¤ I am Sam. Fantastic movie, touching and lovely. Sean Penn is truly great playing the Autistic Sam, and Dakota Fanning is nothing but great playing his little daughter.
¤ Gone with the Wind. Nothing more needs to be said about the master piece.
¤ Once Around. My favorite Lasse Hallström movie! Also the movie from which Peter and I got the idea to use "Fly me to the moon" as our first dance at our wedding 13 years ago.
¤ Fried Green Tomatoes. Girl power movie! Mary-Louise Parker and Mary Stuart Masterson kick butt.
¤ Love Actually. Such a feel-good movie! Lovely to watch this movie around Christmas, or anytime for that matter.
¤ The French Lietunant's woman. A movie I have loved since I was a teen-ager. Meryl Streep and Jeromy Iron's are nothing but magnificent.
¤ Room with a view. Romantic and so beautiful.
¤ Roman Holiday. Audrey Hepburn so darn cute!
¤ Sideways. A new classic for Peter and me. Love it!!! You've gotta enjoy it with your favorite glass if red wine, but do stay clear of Merlot:-)
¤ Austin Powers. All three of them. I am a total Mike Myers fan! I have seen these movies countless times.
I know I have forgotten so, so many good movies here. If you have any favorites I would love to hear about them. I also have Swedish favorite movies, but those I'll write about in another post.
Sean Penn at his best!
A favorite movie from my teen-age years
