Life of a Blogger: Favorite Movies (Freebie)

Life of a Blogger is a weekly meme hosted by Novel Heartbeat. This feature is designed to let readers and other bloggers get to know us on a more personal level by discussing non-bookish topics. This week's topic is a freebie so we chose...

Favorite movies!


Ugh, so many favorites. I definitely have an unhealthy obsession with Pitch Perfect (I can recite most of the movie and do the dances). I also really like Disney Channel movies from my childhood. I think Go Figure is the most underrated DCOM ever and I'm still upset that I can't buy it on DVD. Staying in the same genre, I am a huge fan of Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (and basically everything else Lindsay Lohan was in around that time), Aquamarine, Ice Princess, Stick It, Bring It On (the original, Again, All or Nothing, and In It to Win It), and ANYTHING AMANDA BYNES IS IN BUT ESPECIALLY SHE'S THE MAN. I'm also a HUGE fan of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Easy A, Fight Club, and Donnie Darko. For animated movies, my favorites are Mulan, The Winnie the Pooh Movie (the most recent one with that song "Everything is Honey"), Anastasia (actually so good though), and Hercules (which is definitely an underrated Disney film). Well, we have quite the mix here so I'm just going to stop.


Ooh this is hard . . . I love  lot of movies. I don't watch a lot of movies, mostly TV, but ugh I love so many. Without any particular order, these are the movies that immediately come to mind: V for Vendetta, Into the Woods, Inception. V is just a masterpiece of social commentary and has probably the largest well of quotable lines. It's genius, really. I love Into the Woods because, well, let's be honest, AGONY and the lowkey polyamorous song that Emily Blunt sings -- but also the well structured plot and engaging narrative. Inception, well . . . my god that soundtrack and my god that story is just . . . my god. But I have lots of types of favorites too . . . like Big Hero 6 immediately comes to mind for animated films, along with How to Train your Dragon 2, because both films are incredibly good with gender and ethnic representation while also boasting undeniably awesome plots and narratives and just really cool characters. Also the Avengers. Never forget. I'm going to stop now.


I LOVE SO MANY MOVIES, which is why when people ask me what my favorite movie is I have figured out my top three (I can't narrow it down past that) so I tell them that, so if you'd like to know, my top three favorite movies are The Social Network, V For Vendetta, and American Psycho. The Social Network is where I first fell in love with Andrew Garfield and he's been the love of my life ever since. Of course, there are plenty of other movies I can't get enough of. For example, pretty much anything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Right now, I think my favorite has to be Captain America 2, but there are some very promising ones coming out threatening that spot (cough civil war; cough age of ultron). I've also developed a deep love for Big Hero 6. And of course, I can't forget to mention my favorite Disney movie, which is Tangled. I have so many more movies which I adore beyond belief but a comprehensive list of favorites would take up a lot of time and a lot of room so let's just go with these for now. 


There are just so many, this is actually a struggle for me. Just like my fellow bloggers, I love love loved V for Vendetta (Natalie Portman is a queen on so many levels), Love Actually (because really, who doesn't), and Good Will Hunting. But most of all, I really love bad chick flicks, good chick flicks, chick flicks of any sort -- any sort of mushy romance, big gesture for love, or ridiculous romcom are just my game. Name a romance movie, chances are I've probably seen it. Also Disney/Pixar are just baes because pretty much all of their movies are beloved. I also loved Tangled and Mulan and Aladdin, so I'd say theres a tie between my three favorite Disney movies there. This seems like a lot so I'm going to cut myself off right now because if I don't I will continue forever.

What are some of your favorite movies?
