I saw a post on Glamour Magazine’s website today about movies and which movies you can watch over and over again. I thought that I would give you a few of my favorites!
1- Pretty Woman— I’ve probably seen this one at least 10 times. Sandra Bullock is amazing, and I think the plot is funny, creative, and sweet all at the same time.
2- The Last Samurai— Something about this movie is just kind of magical to me. I love the culture and the history involved, as well as the emotions.
3- Rio— Only kids movie on the list, and I probably could have listed a few more Disney classics, but this has been my favorite since it came out. I have an obsession with Brazil, but in addition to that I love all the colorful birds and the music!
4- Pride and Prejudice— I don’t know exactly why I like this one, besides that I love Jane as a character and think it’s an interesting plot, but it’s a good one to watch!
5- Seabiscuit and Secretariat—Ok- so this is technically two movies, but they are both about famous racehorses so I grouped them together. Both are great stories about some amazing horse-atheletes. I’ve never been able to be around racehorses a whole lot, but I’ve always loved to watch a horse run. There is something about it that just makes you stop and take it in. These are also both great underdog movies about overcoming the odds.
6- Devil Wears Prada-– I love Anne Hathaway in this movie. It’s funny, and for me it also serves as a reminder to do what we enjoy and what is best for ourselves.
7- Mr. and Mrs. Smith-– Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie- Not only are they married in the movie, but they are also enemies. This one is great for a lazy day when you want to chuckle.
8- Two weeks Notice— Another funny one, starring Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant. I adore Hugh Grant’s accent, and I love watching the dynamics of the two characters together! This one is laughs!
9- The Bounty Hunter— Another good Accent- Gerald Butler and another funny movie.
10- PS I Love You — This one is a sweeter side of Gerald Butler. For some reason this movie makes me think of “The Notebook” but not quite as sappy, but just as much of a tearjerker.
11- The blind side— Ultimate feel good inspirational movie!
12- How to lose a guy in 10 days— This one is just funny. Boy is trying to keep girl, while girl is trying to get rid of boy.
13- Dirty dancing— “Nobody puts Baby in the corner.” Patrick Swayze stars in this coming of age movie. I like the dancing but also the interesting relationships between all of the characters
14- Runaway bride— Julia Roberts. This is one of my two favorite movies starring her, but I haven’t been able to find the name of the other one(It has horses in it).
15- Sweet home Alabama—Southern classic- Love the song and the movie!
16- 8 seconds-– Bullriding J This movie is based on the true story on Lane Frost and best friend Tuff Hedeman. It’s a sad one, but it’s a good one if you like rodeo
17- Made of Honor — I haven’t watched this movie in a while, and I really want to watch it again. I have several really close guy friends, and I could see myself as this girl, asking one of them to stand up for me at my wedding. Cute Romantic comedy
18- The holiday— This movie makes me think about finding things in unexpected places and going out of our comfort zone to find what we need. It’s about people who change houses for a few weeks- One is from Los Angeles and the other is from England.
19- Pure Country— George Strait is in this one, and that’s all I need to know! Not only is he a phenomenal country singer, but he does a good job acting in this as well! (Maybe another time I could write a list of my 20 favorite George Strait songs? Is it bad that it wouldn’t be difficult for me to pick out 20 that I love?)
20- Bride Wars-– Final movie. Super fun wedding comedy. I laugh at the conflict between two best friends- but I hope that would never happen to me!
Just for added information- these movies weren’t in a particular order. It would have taken a whole lot more effort to get them organizes, and I figured it was better for me to just share! If you haven’t watched them- I encourage you to test them out. I love watching new movies, and if you have any recommendations for movies you think I should watch, let me know!
