Top 100 Movies Pt 1.

My life has been pretty blasted chaotic lately. Usually my day/week goes like this: Work, school, work, Young Women, school, work, work, free time that should be spent doing homework, but I choose to use as my "decompressing" time, and finally, stressing and panicking because I'm now behind on my homework (that doesn't fetching make sense in the first place.)
So, one of the things I've been doing to clear my head is I've been making a list of my top 100 favorite movies. It's actually a lot harder than I thought it would be. I know I've seen plenty over 100 movies, but SO many of them are not worth putting on the list. They have to be ones that I LOVE or really really like. My list is not in order from best to worst, nor do I base what goes on the list by the "quality" of the movie. There are a LOT of movies that I seriously love that are just generally accepted as crappy. Therefore you are going to see a lot of variety here. I haven't made it to 100 yet so I'll give you the first half now just because I feel like blogging. Once again, these movies are not in order. I actually don't have a #1 favorite movie. It's impossible to decide as the movie would change with my mood and situation in life. Example: this week I have watched The Man From Snowy River twice. I wouldn't be surprised if I watched it again in the next couple of days. Does this mean it's my favorite movie of all time? No. It just means it's hitting the spot right now and all I want to do is watch it, but I have no doubt that after this week I won't watch it again for a really long time. Anyway, onto the first 50 of my list. :)

1. Star Trek (2009)

2. Emma (2009 BBC)

3. The Man From Snowy River (I want to go to Australia!!)

4. The Last of the Mohicans (Best score of all time? Most likely.)

5. Persuasion (2008 BBC)

6. Cloverfield (So cool.)

7. National Treasure (such a fun movie!)

8. The Mummy (Total classic!)

9. North and South (BBC, not the one about the civil war.)

10. Major League 2 (So many memories, so many quotes.)

11. The X Files: Fight the Future. (Oh Mulder, you're such a Fox.)

12. King Arthur (This baby's score is in the running with #4)

13. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (Shoulda just stayed at one.)

14. Independence Day (Utah salt flats! Holla!)

15. While You Were Sleeping

16. A Bug's Life

17. Finding Nemo (Eskapay!)

18. Toy Story

19. Toy Story 2

20. Toy Story 3 (Holy crap this movie was amazing.)

21. The Simpsons Movie. :) :) :)

22. Pride & Prejudice (Keira Knightley version)

23. The Shawshank Redemption (OK, THIS movie could def. be on my list of GREATEST movies ever, but not necessarily my favorite.....make sense?)

24. Inception (I'm still not fully recovered from this.)

25. (500) Days of Summer

26. The Dark Knight

27. The Scarlet Pimpernel (1982)

28. Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India (Oh, Bhuvan. Way to change my life. :D)

29. Equilibrium (Freakin awesome movie.)

30. Clueless (*sheepish grin*)

31. A Time to Kill (Again, one of the Greats, but not one I'd watch everyday, ya know?)

32. The Island (What a totally underrated movie.)

33. Just Like Heaven

34. Speed (Oh my heck, I've watched this movie so many times it's insane.)

35. The Matrix

36. Singing in the Rain (Someday, in heaven, I'll meet Gene Kelly and thank him personally for being so talented.)

37. The Sound of Music (No joke.)

38. Marry Poppins (Classic with a capital "C")

39. Milo & Otis (I can't even think about it without getting misty eyed and reminiscent.)

40. Ace Venture (I'm not even kidding. This is on here solely for the quotes I still use to this day.)

41. Terminator Salvation

42. Charade (Cary Grant, baby.)

43. Count of Monte Cristo (Love. It.)

44. One Fine Day (Never has a man been as charming as George Clooney is in this movie.)

45. White Christmas (I can watch it all year round.)

46. Frequency (I cry every time.)

47. The Sixth Sense

48. Signs

49. Far and Away (Thank you, Enya.)

50. Enchanted

So there you have it. The first half of my list. Stay tuned for the next half, which may be posted tomorrow, or perhaps in a month. Only time (which I have a very limited amount) will tell. Peace for now.

Great Things!

1. I am beginning to realize how awesome Philosophy is. It kind of rocks. And surprisingly I GET it. At least so far.....(Knock on wood.)

2. My friggin Humanities class kicks trash. That class is going to blow my mind. I just know it. I'm actually starting to think it might make me want to take more art classes...... who woulda thunk! We looked at some paintings from the Romantic Era in class and because of that I discovered the painter Caspar David Friedrich. I. Love. Him. Here are a few of his works that I'm completely head-over-heels for.

Wanderer above the Sea of Fog (1818)

Seascape in Moonlight (1833)

Die Winterreise (1827)

Also in the "good news" world. Both Michael Buble' AND Josh Groban have come out with new songs. How rad is that? How rad is it that I am using the word 'rad?'
I feel like my brain is in a million places at the same time these days. I don't know how to compartmentalize! SO many things need to be done, along with all the other things I WANT to get done, add on top everything else that comes between.
So little time for sleep. And yet here I am blogging....... I just really wanted to tell everyone how much I'm loving my classes. Except for Meteorology. It's like a wrench that's been thrown into my schedule. Every teacher except Mr. Nasal as I call him (which really I don't mean in an "I hate that man" way. He really talks through his nose!) is SO passionate about what they are teaching and so I sit there absolutely enthralled by everything they're saying. But in Meto, I'm like *..............................*
In summary. Art=Cool. Philosophy=Cool. Meteorology=Snoooooze. My Life=Hectic. Sleep=Non-existent.

Pics from Legacy Lake

I know I never posted anything about girl's camp a couple weeks ago, but it's too late now. All you need to know is that I could have stayed for another 2 weeks if I had the option. :) But anyway, I wanted to share a couple of wicked awesome shots I got at Legacy Lake.
