Hi everyone! I thought it would be fun to share with you some of my favorite characters and movies that I feel don’t get enough appreciation or attention from me (and others). I’ll also of course be stating why, so expect some mild fangirl-ing XD
Ernest T. Bass from The Andy Griffith Show! Now, normally when I watch something funny, I’ll laugh the first few times I watch it and my laughs will suddenly subside and I’ll just smile or not even care anymore. But sometimes, something is so funny that I literally laugh every time I watch it – no matter how many times I’ve seen it! This is the case with Ernest T. Bass. He is a crazy, wild, mountain man, hillbilly who loves to throw rocks through windows and climb and jump around like a monkey – all the while laughing merrily! I just can’t get over him – he absolutely cracks me up! Laughing makes me feel good and definitely turns my day around, so I highly recommend watching Ernest T. Bass when you need a good laugh. That is, if you like that kind of thing ;D
The Cowardly Lion is another one of my favorites. I die each time he laughs or cries! It’s so hilarious – and when he “barks!” AGH!! The Cowardly Lion, just like Ernest T., makes me laugh every time I watch The Wizard of Oz! 😀
I’m sure many of you might hate me right now, but I really like Jar Jar Binks! I wouldn’t say I love him, but I really like him! I honestly don’t understand why people hate him so much. He’s just clumsy and prone to making mistakes – but aren’t a lot of people? I love how he walks and talks, and I’ll laugh when he makes mistakes and I feel bad for him when people get mad at him. I understand, it could be annoying and extremely frustrating to have him around all the time, but in the movies, I’ve always enjoyed him.
*dies* People. This – oh my gosh. This is seriously one of my all time favorite movies!
*returns from grabbing my Count of Monte Cristo bracelet*
The Count of Monte Cristo is an intense story full of revenge, romance, broken hearts, redemption – it just kills me, you guys! It’s one of those movies that you watch where afterwards, you feel dead. Just completely drained and like you can’t focus on anything else but the amazing movie you just watched.
It does have some thematic elements (unfortunately a lot of movies do), so make sure to talk with a parent before watching it 😉
But truly, it’s worth watching! It’s such an amazing story – I can hardly put it into words. *mentally tells mom we need to watch this movie again*
“It’s a rumor, a legend, a mystery! Something whispered in an alleyway or through a crack!”
Anastasia is a beautiful movie about a girl who has lost her memory and wants to find her real family. Dimitri, a con artist wanting money, gets “Anya” as she calls herself, to agree to portray as The Grand Duchess Anastasia who has been missing for several years after her whole family was killed (except for her grandmother in Paris 😉 ). It’s a mystery, a romance, and a musical! The songs are so powerful and emotional – one of which gives me chills just about every time I listen to it! *thinks, I need to listen to the soundtrack again…*
The only thing I don’t like about this movie is the villain, Rasputin. He’s absolutely disgusting. We skip the parts that are all about him cause it’s just too much. *ugh, now his song is in my head!!*
We actually just watched this movie last night! After watching it, I always think – man, that’s a really good movie!
Reign of Fire is about the world being destroyed and taken over by dragons. There are not many survivors in the world and even London is empty – except for the hundreds of dragons that live there. It’s a survival story and definitely worth watching! And, I just have to say, Christian Bale’s accent is amazing. And so is Gerard Butler’s. XD It’s also very sad, but not in the way that would make me cry. It’s just sad. 😉
I think the rest of the movies I have to show are all romances – oh boy! XD
Miss Potter is about the authoress, Beatrice Potter and her journey to becoming a best-selling author. It’s also a tragic romance. Oh gosh, so sad. It’s a very serious movie, but a great story! Oh, and Ewan McGregor sings a song in it, so that’s awesome XD
I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!! It’s SO CONFUSING!!! LOLOL!
Seriously, this movie is insanely confusing to me, I don’t get how something that happens in it is even possible, but somehow it is. My mind just can’t wrap around it. XD
This is a love story about two people who live in different time periods, but somehow start writing letters to each other and form an attachment. It’s a beautiful movie and again, so confusing to me! I really wanna watch this now, too…
*dies* It- I- it’s just – *dies*
The Young Victoria is literally one of my all time favorite romance movies! The acting is superb, the costumes are gorgeous, and the story is just amazing. It’s all about Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Their meeting, how they fell in love, the struggles – I just love it. It’s an absolutely beautiful movie and makes me so happy (and yet, dead) after I watch it.
This movie also has some thematic elements in it, but easily skip-able 😉
Treasure Planet is one of Disney’s greatest movies! At least I feel that way LOL! I don’t think this movie gets nearly enough attention as it should. It’s a great story full of adventure, humor, and AMAZING songs! Whenever I’m listening to music and a song from this movie comes on, I always get so happy! Also, with that little chub nugget of adorableness (AKA, Morph), how could you not like this movie? XD
Everyone, this movie messed me up. In a very bad way. I was depressed pretty much the rest of the day after I watched it. I was crying after the movie ended. I died. (I actually was getting teary as I typed all that right now)
I’ve only watched this movie once so far, but it’s a very interesting story, tragic romance *bites lip*, and just – *sigh*. It’s a very good movie, I loved it. But the ending is terrible.
This movie also has a thematic element in it. I’m letting you all know this so you can let your parents know in case you wanna watch it. I don’t want them thinking I’m recommending bad movies to you! LOL!
Okay. Now that I’m dying over everything I just typed, I think I need to go continue reading my Amish romance book and maybe have some ice cream. XD
Do you love any of the characters or movies I listed? Did any of the movies sound interesting to you?
