Man From Snowy River, an Australian Western Worth Watching

1. Man From Snowy River, an Australian Western Worth Watching

I was a horse crazy girl growing up and not only did I read every horse book available, I watched every horse movie released and I continue to search out a good western or movie featuring horses. I first watched The Man From Snowy River in high school at a…

Sexy Beast: Review

2. Sexy Beast: Review

I love this film – but it’s not for everyone I had to say that straight away. This is a British film concerning underworld characters so you don’t need much imagination to know that there’s a certain amount of ‘language’ involved….

3. Fried Green Tomatoes, An Unforgettable Movie

The Passion, Like Christ, Changed the World!

4. The Passion, Like Christ, Changed the World!

The Passion of the Christ is a movie that doesn’t necessarily make you feel good, but it sure makes you think! It is a movie that I have watched on numerous occasions, especially when I felt the need for an injection of faith. What makes the Passion s…

The Birds | Nature is Scary

5. The Birds | Nature is Scary

The Birds frightened me then and it frightens me now. In the days before the kind of technical equipment we now have, this movie set a standard for scariness. It is right up there with Psycho. To this day a large flock of birds gives me pause to wonder wha…

Saving Milagro

6. Saving Milagro

A sleepy, southwestern small town where everyone knows everybody and life is simple and quiet. Life is pretty quiet until you have a big- time developer who wants to move in and build an expensive housing project and golf course and a man who is unemployed…

Cube-Who Will Make it Out?

7. Cube-Who Will Make it Out?

What happens when a strange group of mismatched individuals end up dazed and disoriented in an odd cube shaped structure with no idea how they got there? Let’s just say there are several issues that come into play in the movie, Cube. First of all, you…

8. The Libertine Review – Johnny Depp as John Wilmot, the 2nd Earl of Rochester – A Favorite Film

‘Do you like me now? ‘ Not that it’s an easy task to choose, but ‘The Libertine’ is my favorite Johnny Depp movie. Depp’s acting and character portrayal shine in this film. If you like Johnny Depp and you haven’t seen thi…

Anastasia Animation Film is Better Than a Disney Movie

10. Anastasia Animation Film is Better Than a Disney Movie

Fox Animation Studios produced its first featured animation film, Anastasia, in November of 1997, often erroneously mistaken for a Disney film. In fact, with this box office success (grossing nearly $140 million) 20th Century Fox had high hopes of competin…

Frozen - Possibly the Best Disney Movie Ever!

11. Frozen – Possibly the Best Disney Movie Ever!

At least once a year, I make my way across the ocean to see my family and friends in Hawaii. Since it’s only once a year, there are always so many things that are on my must- do list such as eating my favorite foods, going to the beach and watching a…

Bringing Up Baby - A Favorite Screwball Comedy

12. Bringing Up Baby – A Favorite Screwball Comedy

I love a movie that is so frivolous it is pure entertainment without stress or drama. The screwball comedies of the 1930s fit my needs perfectly with Bringing Up Baby my all time favorite in this genre. It is a silly movie with a plot designed solely to ti…

The Lion King - Disney's Best Movie Ever

13. The Lion King – Disney’s Best Movie Ever

In 1994, I was fourteen years old, which as anyone who has been fourteen can tell you is an awkward age. I wasn’t quite ready to be an adult, but I certainly wasn’t a little kid either. However, when the Lion King was released by Disney, I couldn…

The Riotous Fun that is the Pixar Movie Ratatouille

14. The Riotous Fun that is the Pixar Movie Ratatouille

This wonderful movie, brainchild of those coolly creative minds that make Pixar so magical, is really just pure enchantment, and my personal choice as their best film. You cannot help but love Ratatouille – a rat in the kitchen – with a culinary flavour, r…

Hepburn Magic in Breakfast at Tiffany's

15. Hepburn Magic in Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Maybe it’s the soundtrack. maybe Audrey Hepburn’s fabulous wardrobe. or maybe it’s the way she ‘reinvented’ herself. who knows which is the top reason Breakfast at Tiffany’s is my favorite movie, but it is and has been for mor…

Carpe Diem with Dead Poets Society

16. Carpe Diem with Dead Poets Society

The Dead Poets Society is a movie that works on so many levels to create a rich, rewarding experience for the viewer, so much so, that it’s hard to begin to untangle the ways. Robin Williams in the lead as the teacher, John Keating, delivers the perfo…
