14/365: My Top Ten Favorite Movies of All Time (A Re-post From My Former Blog)

Since I am talking about movies and books lately I consider today as the most fitting time to re-post one imported article from my former blog that I de-activated - "TheLuckyBlog.Info".

Check this out and you might find one of your favorite here.
***
Have you watched a certain movie over and over again until you lost count how many times you watched it?   Do you have a copy of that movie that you are watching over and over?

I am a movie lover and I watched variety of movies. I have more than a hundred favorite movies in mind but I have this top ten movies that I never get tired of watching.  I used to have this habit of collecting the original copies of my favorite movies.

I have the list of these movies in my manual journal and you will find that some of them have check marks.  The check mark means that I already acquired the original CD of that movie.  My best friend has her own list of favorites also.  Whoever between us finds a copy of a movie from our lists, we buy it in behalf of each other.  These original CDs used to be expensive and it was not financially-easy to sustain our habits.  What we used to do was to wait for these movies to be "on sale", then we buy the original copies.  If the movie is not so popular, I checked on video shops and buy the shop's extra copy.

'My purpose for collecting these movies is for me to watch them them anytime that I want to.  Well nowadays there are several easy ways to find the movie of your choice.  But before torrents and downloads became popular, I buy them and almost complete my list . “Almost” because I can not find the original copies of the other movies which are not very popular or not too commercialized.

pulled-out from my dust-covered collections,

    3. The Thin Red Lines
    4. The Notebook

  25. Trip ko yung 1 kasi i like Sandra Bullock at gusto kong maging katulad ni Keanu Reeves, hahaha! Trip ko yung 2 kasi bihira lang magkaroon ng impact ang mga war movies sakin, and Saving Private Ryan is one of the few that left an incredible impression on me. When I saw it parang gusto ko noon sumama sa military. THANK GOD NAGBAGO ANG ISIP KO, dahil napanood ko yung no. 6- 13 Days. Na tripan ko maging political aide ng kahit sinong politician, at dun din nagsimula ang desire ko pumasok sa pulitika.

    Trip ko din ang Meet Joe Black. Very romantic. I like Anthony Hopkins too. Nabading din ako sa katawan ni Brad Pitt. Hahaha! But the story is really romantic. Superb acting sa part ni Brad Pitt, the way he discovers the thrills and beauty of being in-love, and the tenacity of Hopkin's character in holding on to life and his fatherly love for his daughter. Nice film.

    My list is the following (random):

    1. Moulin Rouge (eto talaga ang number 1 sa puso ko. I LOOOVE NICOLE KIDMAN!)
    2. The Hours (Nicole pa rin)
    3. The Peacemaker (Nicole pa rin)
    4. Vendetta Trilogy -Korean movies by Park Chan Wook
    5. LOTR Trilogy
    6. Harry Potter Saga
    7. The Iron Lady
    8. Dogville (Nicole Kidman for the nth time..)
    9. Silence of the Lambs
    10. STAR WARS SAGA!!!!!!!!

    Most of the time I watch historical movies.... you know, the nerdy boring stuff that always excite me and kill others to death out of boredom.

  26. Di ako usually nagtatanda kung ano mga pinapanood ko pero sige as far as I can remember nalang:

    Sound of Music - Dito ako natuto sa kantang DoReMi, kaya nung grade 3 ako dina bago sa akin nung itinuro yung kanta sa Music subject namin, saulo ko na e hehe.
    Ghost - eto bata pa ako nun, shit laki ng impact saken nun. dalang dala sa istorya pagdating sa lovemaking, oi pikit ang mata! sigaw ng mga elders haha ayun hanggang pagtulog iniisip ko pa din yung character ni Demi Moore at ang sayang na diko nakitang lovescene LOL
    At First Sight - Lovestory na naman, very challenging yung role ni Val Kilmer dito as a blind man. Basta nakakakilig. Di halatang mahilig ako sa Romance hehe.
    Titanic - True to life story, touching talaga naiyak ako sobra.
    Tristan and Isolde - First time kung nakatuntong ng Gateway sa Cubao, daming first time kasi first sine bonding namin with cousins. mala teatro ang tema nito e, i love watching theatre plays. Masarap panoorin yung movie, siempre nakakainlove.

    Tsaka many to mention, Speed isa din yan sa fave ko kasi fave ko si Sandra Bullock. Basta feel good movies, comedy, action, crime, sci-fi lalo na horror kahit ano pwede kong panoorin at pwede kong maging favorite basta swak sa panlasa ko..
