[Top 10 Tuesday is a book blog meme hosted by the wonderful The Broke and the Bookish because who doesn’t love top 10 lists!]
It’s time for another Top Ten! This week’s topic is Top Ten All Time Favourite Movies!
Dead Poets Society
“Oh Captain, My Captain.” Dead Poets Society is a compelling story about the importance of education, boys learning to become men, and carpe diem. Knox Overstreet doesn’t hurt either.
As a bright and somewhat naive fourteen year old, I fell in love with Jake Ryan and Samantha Baker. Her sarcasm was refreshing and I really liked his preppy style. Although it’s not my favourite film anymore because of its blatant issues, I loved it for so long I had to feature it here.
“You see us as you want to see us—in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain…and an athlete…and a basket case…a princess…and a criminal. Does that answer your question?”
Children of a Lesser God
William Hurt plays a determined speech teacher at a deaf school. Marlee Matlin plays the school’s janitor who reluctantly becomes Hurt’s student.
Me Before You
I fell in love with the book, so I had to watch the film. Who doesn’t want to see Daenerys in a new light.
The Hunger Games
It takes “If it bleeds, it leads” a little too far, don’t you think?
Up Close and Personal
Robert Redford. Michelle Pfeiffer. Crazy pink skirt suit. Because You Loved Me.
How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
My best friend and I have seen this film so many times that we can probably quote it now.
The chemistry between Julia Roberts and Richard Gere is undeniable.
One of the few adaptations that I loved just as much as the book.
What do you think of my Top Ten list? What is yours like?
