My Cousin Vinny. Have only seen this a small handful of times but it makes me laugh each time. My favorite line is when when Vinny asks the judge if he can declare his own girlfriend a hostile witness...LOL. Maybe it's time to revisit this one...
Moulin Rouge. Nicole surprised me because her voice was a whole lot nicer than expected. I like the way they used modern music to set the mood, much like A Knights Tale did. The funniest scene has a reworking of Madonna's Like a Virgin. Trust me, like when iggy reworks the lyrics to a song....you'll never EVER hear that song the same way ever again!
Miss Congeniality. Candice Bergen playing a bitchy ex beauty queen, William Shatner as a relatively clueless show host, Michael Caine as a stylist and Sandra Bullock as an ugly-duckling-turned-swan federal agent sent under cover to catch a criminal....what more could you ask for? Her character dolled up and exiting a hanger to the tune of Mustang Sally and then tripping? Check. Her character not having a clue as to what to do for the talent portion and beating up on her partner infront of an audience to teach self defense (as her talent mind you)? Check. Havent watched the follow up to it yet, maybe it's high time to.
MIB first AND second movies. Love em! Tony Schalub (Monk) as a head re-generating alien is a total hoot. If you must miss one of these, do NOT miss the first one with Vincent D' Orofino (Law and Order:Criminal Intent) as the Bug. You think his acting in L&O is off kilter, his acting in this is a must see.
Mask of Zorro. I enjoyed this one alot...actually both that I saw were great. I usually dont sit through dramas as well as comedies so it was a real surprise. Oh and that song on the first soundtrack....*sigh* with Tina Arena and Marc Anthony is simply b-e-a-utiful.
Mummy... first two movies (havent seen the other one yet). I dont generally much get into monster or horror movies much, but this seems to be more action than "lets scare the pants off of some people". Maybe it's the slash and gore I dont like...hmm. Yes, these movies had a couple moments when I was peeking from between my fingers....but nothing like the movie Doom (which found me cowering behind my hands most of the way through....*sigh* they were free tickets though...). A real shame they couldnt get the same actress to play in the 3rd movie opposite Brenden Frasier.
Miracle on 34th Street. The version with Mara Wilson is my absolute favorite. She's a real joy to watch up on the screen. One of my utmost favorite lines comes out of this movie. Im sure many of you have seen my shorthand for it many times. Instead of saying "You're welcome" when someone thanks her, she says "You're Entirely Welcome". I always loved that and started using it in chat....so instead of the customary yw to a ty became a yew.
And representing the animated films is Mulan. A wonderful story of a young girl that sneaks off with her father's armor to go to war in his place.
As with the M is for Men... feel free to play along. List your favorites for any of the categories in their respective blog entries. If you've played the "10 things I love starting with the letter" game already, use the letter you were given....if not feel free to use the letter I was given.
So far we've covered 7 of my favs. Three more to go....
