BEETLEJUICE ! EDWARD SCISSORHANDS ! APPARENTLY MY CAP LOCK IS STUCK !



Drop Dead Fred is a classic!







OMG there's that movie.. about monsters under the bed... freakin can't remember if the name is like... obvious or not but there's the monster guy that makes friends with the lil boy and they go into the monster world under the lil boys bed....... that movie, even though the name of it is completely not coming to me is a freakin awesome movie!







Natalie Portman = alien. It's settled.







I liked the first Species movie, even though whats her pickle really crapped the acting.



I liked Aliens movies too, Sigourney Weaver is so badass.



I really like Susan Surrandon as an actress.



Dead Man Walking is one of my fave movies ever.

Stepmom really wasn't a bad movie, corny in some ways but good.





I liked Iron Man. I've watched it a couple times since it's come out.





I freakin HATED the Speedracer movie. HATED HATED HATED. Stupid man made me go to the stupid theater to see the stupid movie. STUPID MOVIE !





I wasn't expecting Zombieland to be as good as it ended up being... the older chick though, creepy... the whole Fairuza Bailk look isn't sexy to me... I kept thinking she was gonna turn into a vampire and ruin the movie completely....



Funny story, when we went to see Zombieland I ended up tellin off some asshole who sat down right in front of me (I'm short - have a lil consideration - sit 1-2 seats over) there was a WHOLE ROW and he sat RIGHT in front of me. I had my feet up on the back of the chair before I saw that they had stopped at the aisle in front of us, so I put them down on the floor. He sat right in front of me and I said "Excuse me, do you mind moving down 1 or 2 seats?" and he said "Why? So I can smell your feet. No thanks." And I said "No you asshole. I paid to see the movie not the back of your fat head. I came to see the fucking MOVIE." He called me a bitch and I asked him if he was gonna sit sideways so I could see through his gaping hole between his ears and he told me to fuck off, I told him he didn't have to be a douche and him and his dog moved 3-4 rows down :D



Oh and then about 12 to 15 15-16 year old boys lined into the theater, all wearing WoW or video game or punk band name shirts and the button up flannel over shirt. They all sat in 1 row and it was TOTALLY a typical lan-party nerd fest get together outing. I nearly pee'd my pants laughing thinking of all these boys sittin around playing video games and goin "omgz lolz dude zombieland is on tonight, we should totally go see it. omgz I heard there's zombie tits. omgz omgz lolzlolzlolz zombies totally pwnz newbz!!"



And that is my zombieland movie theater outing story for you all lol

My best friends fiance is a Toby Maguire look alike... only taller, like a foot and a half taller.... so if I my hubby looked like Toby... that would be even creepier than Natalie Portman's praying mantis alienishness

I want to see Brothers too. Sorry but ummm if I had a husband that looked like scrawny Toby Maguire and his brother looked like Jake Gyllenhal...I would have to dump the hubby for the brother...haha. No really I want to see the movie though. It will probably eat me up though because with my hubby being in the military the plot may hit a little to close to home...but then again I cannot relate because my brother in law is in a committed relationship plus he is gay...no brother swapping here...haha.

Nah, I've shaved my head before too lol all of the movies I've seen her in she just seems... awkward.... to me. And then she was on Top Chef: Las Vegas a few weeks ago.... she's just creepy. Her laugh, her smile, her eyes, her whole face, her twiggish body, she's awkward and creepy. She just has this look to her like she's an alien that is related to the praying mantis or something... I dunno she just creeps me out...

Lol, I've shaved my head myself so, no. Something about her is just off. I read something at some point, I wish I could remember where and what but, she was totally out of touch with regular life. It was crazy...

Oh yeah! Godfather 1 and 2 are definitely on my list! And "Bend and Snap" is a classic movie scene as well!

The Girl in the Cafe is a really moving movie, it's obscure as well.

I love ET, but I break into tears in the opening credits. That movie really hits me hard.

I really liked the Curious Case of Benjamin Button as well...I was crying so hard at the end, but I also had just had a baby, so it may have been hormones in combo with the scene at the end that did me in.

omg I'm so glad to see I'm not the only one that had Clueless on the list. LOL As if! :-) Wow...after reading through these I see I forgot to add a few! Willow being one of them...LOVE LOVE LOVE that movie! "He stole the baby while you were taking a pee-pee!!"

American Beauty - creepy..but great flick
Trannsiberian...If you haven't seen it...check it out!
Taken...not much for action movies but this movie rocks!
I'm prob gonna get laughed at for this one..but Legally Blond. NOT for the whole movie...just for the part where she teaches her that bend and snap move...then when she tried it and broke the delivery guy's nose..omg that scene almost killed me I laughed so hard...I'm laughing right now thinking about it...priceless. LOL

I don't know HOW I forgot to list these...but I'm a HUGE mafia movie fan...
Godfather 1, 2 & 3 (but not so much as the first 2)
Goodfellas
Scarface
King of NY
Road to Perdition
Donnie Brasco
Untouchables

Joy, that's quite the list ya got going on there lol....there are a few there that I love...
Fried Green Tomatoes...not only do I love the movie...I loveeeee eating them lol
The Notebook, A Christmas Story, Dusk til Dawn...Neverending Story....

Ladies...if you've never watched "The Heart of Me" w/Paul Bettany and Helena Bonham Carter I HIGHLY recommend...it can be a little difficult to find at a video store..but if you have Netflix or Blockbuster (the mail one) they usually carry it....That's one of my top 3 of alllll time... It's heartbreaking and wrong (u'll see what I mean) but what a great film.
