Katie Watches Movies

Friday, May 23, 2014

What is life without movies? I don't understand how people can simply say they don't like movies. How can you not like movies? I may be biased because I come from a stage and film background, but even still, movies are great.

I like a lot of movies, and I am constantly saying this movie or thst movie is my new favorite. But, the truth is I only have a few movies that I can watch over and over and still love.

 The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Arthur Dent is a normal man living a normal life. Well, until he discovers that his house is to be demolished and the girl he has fallen for as shacked up with a ship stealing alien. Plus, with a cast with Martin Freeman, Zooey Deschanel, Mos Def, and Alan Rickman, how can you go wrong?

Cast: Martin Freeman (Sherlock, The Office UK, The Hobbit), Zooey Deschanel (New Girl, Elf), Mos Def/Yasiin Bey (rapper), Alan Rickman (Harry Potter, Die Hard, Love Actually, Sweeney Todd)

Star Trek/Star Trek: Into Darkness

If you don't know already, I'm a huge Star Trek fan. I'm more of a Next Generation girl, but there is a special place in my heart for the original series. I like the reboot series because you see relationships forming. You see how Kirk and Spock become friends, and you see the dynamics between this very young and different crew. Into Darkness is the same way; people being tested above their limits and it is the ultimate story of loyalty and frienship. Also, c'mon, the cast is gorgeous. Kill me now.

Cast: Chris Pine (This Means War, Princess Diaries 2, Unstoppable), Zachary Quinto (Heroes, American Horror Story), Zoe Saldana (Guardians of the Galaxy, Avatar), Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), Karl Urban (Lord of the Rings, Dredd, Almost Human), Anton Yelnich (Fright Night, Charlie Bartlett, Terminator Salvation) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, 12 Years a Slave, War Horse)

Pride and Prejudice

This is the only Jane Austen book I actually like. It tells the story of the Bennett family, who have 5 daughters. As the girls are getting older, so are their parents, and Mrs. Bennett wants her daughters to all be wed before Mr. Bennett dies, so they can be in good, well-to-do homes. It's the story of developing love and just general girlyness.

Mmm, Mr. Darcy. Need I say more?

Cast: Keira Knightly (Pirates of the Caribbean), Matthew Macfayden (Anna Karenina, Robin Hood)

X-Men/X2/X-Men: The Last Stand/X-Men First Class

I combined all of the X-Men movies into one group because I could go on and on about every individual one. X-Men is my favorite thing ever. I'm a rabid X-Men fangirl--it's actually the biggest reason I'm Team Marvel rather than Team DC. I love the backstory, the characters and just the allure of mutant abilities. Albeit, there are some bad things about the movies (WOLVERINE IS NOT THE LEADER, STOP MAKING MOVIES ABOUT HIM. WHERE IS JUBILEE? ROGUE IS NOT THE SAME AS HER.) Caps were totally needed, by the way.

And, I'm sure that X-Men: Days of Futures Past will be great. (Sentinels?! Groovy Charles Xavier? Yes please.)

Cast: Sir Patrick Stewart (Star Trek: The Next Generation, American Dad), Sir Ian McKellen (Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit), James Marsden (Enchanted), Hallie Berry (Catwoman, Die Another Day, The Call), Hugh Jackman (The Wolverine, Oklahoma! Van Helsing), Anna Paquin (True Blood)
