Top 5 Friday

 Today's Top 5 Friday comes from Brina of Rose Colored Glasses.

Her question was my top 5 movie quotes... I switched it up a bit to trailers b/c Im not a big quote person.  There are many I love, but out of context, they just dont sound as good.  So Im leaving you with trailers to 5 of my favorite movies.  This was a hard decision b/c I have lots of other movies I love just as much as these...

Amelie... I adore everthing about this move.  Audrey Tatou is just about the most precious actress.  I love the colors, the story, the music, the feel, the language, everything about this film.
 
Youve Got Mail... my all time favorite feel good movie.  I just love Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, and together they are just adorable.  I think I have this whole movie memorized.  Seriously.  Love it.
 
Rushmore... I love each and every Wes Anderson movie.  I love the simplicity of his movies, the way he directs, his visual imagery is superb.  He always uses the best music made just for his movies, and re-uses interesting characters throughout all of his movies.  Top favorite director... one of them at least.
 
Pulp Fiction... a long time favorite.  one that never goes out of style.  Quentin Tarentino is my other favorite director.  Love everything he does.  
 
My Neighbor Totoro... my favorite Hayao Miyazaki movie.  Again, I love everything he touches.  Favorite japanese animator, story teller, director, everything.  This is a magical movie that will make you fall in love with wonder and adventure.  I recommend seeing all of his movies.

Enjoy!  Most of you have probably already seen all of these, if not, go watch them!

PEACE,
Laura

  5. I'm so excited you took my idea and made it your own! I know what you mean about quotes being taken out of context. One of my favorite movies is "As Good As It Gets" and whenever I quote it, people seem a little disturbed. *hee hee*

    "My Neighbor Totoro" and "You've Got Mail" are two of my favorite movies, as well. I was only introduced to "Totoro" this year, though. (And it made me cry! Big baby!)
