*I recently remembered I had another blog I had started years and years ago. This was the only post I had written, and part of me is really ashamed at my writing. However, I have been blogging for a year now, and I thought this would be an interesting way of celebrating that. (Plus, I’m using this as an intermediary while I try to find the flash drive that had some of the projects I’m working on ….) My writing is rough; you are warned. *
Top Five Favorite Movies for Snow Days
Okay. So, with this snow normally comes snow days. And, lucky me, my brothers have already had four. Me, um, two. So, when that opportunity comes around, you will probably find me in our basement watching movies. By myself. Under our leopard blanket. With hot chocolate. So, “What movies,” you ask? Well, let me explain.
Jane Eyre This movie is so long, four hours exactly, but it fills my romantic craving. Plus, I love the idea of a troubled romance, so, hey, perfect combo, right? Troubled romances, long movies, and a hot lead? Get my hot cocoa started! Also, that time in England, the mid 1800’s, completely captivates me. The dresses, the, ah, men, and the parties. So, like, honestly, what better way to spend a snow day? Eh?
Les Miserables I got the full show on DVD for Christmas this past year. Yeah, it’s just singing, but, hey. It is actually at the London Hall, so it’s supposed to be good, right? I still need to finish it. I haven’t been able to watch it the whole way through, so I’m just waiting for that. Also, and you can ask my family this, but I go around the house singing Les Mis songs day in and day out. Mark finds it annoying, but once you get bit by the Les Mis bug, there ain’t no going back!
Alice in Wonderland Okay, this movie is either love it or hate it, and I for one, love it! My top favorite actors are in it; Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Alan Rickman, and Johnny Depp. Plus, it was directed by Tim Burton. Sure, he’s crazy, but he does some good movies! I got it for Christmas, on Blu-ray, and wow, the colors are vibrant! I just think, even though his movies are out there and out of the ordinary, the music is amazing! I hear something weird and instantaneously, I think Tim Burton. So, yeah.
Anything Harry Potter Yes, I know, I’m obsessing. But whatever! I have always loved the idea of magic, so this is perfect! Also, I think the main theme behind all of the books is a good way to say that good triumphs over evil, no matter how strong the evil may be. I think that Daniel Radcliff is a great actor, no matter what everyone else says. Plus, I want to be completely ready for a surprise trip down to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Hint, hint, Mom!
Avatar This movie is just plain good! Sigourney Weaver definitely knows how to kick some butt in the movie! Also, Pandora is amazing! The plants, the animals, and Eywa reminds me of how much God is around me and everywhere I look. Personally, I find the Na’ vi people intriguing. Just the way they go about things, like killing animals, hunting, living, and the music. It makes me wish Pandora was real and that we could actually take on the form of an avatar. Hmm, that would be so cool. Hey, I will keep right on dreaming!
So, those are just a few of the movies I would watch (and have watched). My list could go on and on, including the like of Pirates of the Caribbean, Thumbelina, Anastasia, and many more, but I said my top five. Plus, the “Pirate” movies are another story in and of itself. Please let me know what your top movies for snow days are.
