Top Ten Movie Blogfest

First, the winner from the Lunar Love Giveaway is posted.

Now for fun!



A huge thank you to Ninja Capt Alex J. Cavanaugh for hosting this awesome blogfest.

My top ten are not listed in any particular order.

1. LOTR Trilogy: Couldn't pick just one, so I'm cheating a little by putting all three.



2. Last of the Mohicans: Gosh, I never get tired of watching this one. Ever. Don't believe me? Ask my husband.



3. Aliens: The first one, Alien, was a bit too slow for me. This sequel had great pacing, strong acting and tied my stomach into knots from the middle to the end.



4. Dune: If you're a fan, no explanation is necessary.



5. Queen Margot: Sumptuous costumes, haunting music, riveting story.



6. True Romance: The story was fresh, so unexpected and quirky. It's gritty with dark humor. Best of all it makes you root for Clarence and Alabama from start to finish, despite the harsh odds against them.



7. Dark Knight Trilogy: Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale did a brilliant job. I will forever love this version of the saga.



8. Dangerous Liaisons: Glenn Close, John Malkovich and Michelle Pfeiffer. Conniving antics, vicious plots of revenge and smiles as sharp as razors wrapped around gorgeous costumes and striking cinematography.



9. Blade Runner: A cutting-edge sci-fi masterpiece by Ridley Scott.



10. Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon: After seeing this, I walked out of the movie theater blown away. Whenever I watch it again, I'm just as enthralled as the first time by two deep love stories, a perfect soundtrack, rich cinematography and beautiful martial arts choreography.



Here's the list of other blogs participating.

  8. Ooh, I saw Queen Margot. Very lush movie. And you can't go wrong with LOTR. And Blade Runner was so iconic of the 80's. Cool movie.

  13. Great list! I can pick a clear favorite of the LOTR movies, although I like all three: Return of the King. On the other hand, of the Dark Knight trilogy, I like the third one the least. I feel like Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway are the only good things about it - that plot is a hot mess. Hathaway's an awesome Catwoman, though.
