My Faves: Movies

Well, I know that summer is movie season, but ever since we've had Allie we don't really see movies until they come out on video.  We love to watch movies, of course, but I have a picky husband...I am a big romantic comedy fan, but also love action in a movie...especially if the actor is hot :)  I was thinking about my favorite movies of all time, and it is a little embarrassing, but I thought I would share anyway.


I used to have a big crush on Richard Gere so First Knight is my fave from way back when...


...and also Runaway Bride.


How to Lose a Guy is probably my all-time favorite, regardless of the cheesiness...


And Elf will always be my favorite Christmas movie.


I saw Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Trey the second week we started dating, so it always brings back fun memories.  I can watch this movie over and over and not get sick of it.



I think that Avatar is my new favorite recent movie (even though I can't stand all the save-the-earth propaganda)  I guess I will see if it stands the test of time...

Anyone seen any good movies lately?

Would you believe I've never seen Mr. & Mrs. Smith despite the gorgeous leads and the fact that I love action movies? I've seen the rest of your list and think they're great fun! I really liked Inception and am looking forward to date night with my husband so we can go see The Last Exorcism. I've heard good things about it.

Haha Jess you and I need to hang out because I think we are a lot alike, I feel the exact same on all of those movies and I hated thy about Avatar.. "they killed their mother" that line was sooo annoying to me. Haha I LOVE first knight! I'd add pride and predjudice to that list though. Loooove that movie and book!

Oh my gosh! I swear just like a week ago I was confessing to Taylor about my first movie star crush. I said Richard Gere in First Knight. I wonder what year that came out and how I I/we were. Hmmm... I'll have to google it. I love the other movies you listed too. Good choices! We are always really late on watching movies because we wait for Redbox, but recently we rented Dear John and I really liked it. Maybe you would too?? Trey probably wouldn't, so watch it alone. :)

1995... but I probably saw it in '96. 10-years-old! :)

I would add The Thomas Crown Affair with Pierce Brosnan. Sexy!
