1. The Devil Wears Prada - I can watch this movie, over and over again. I actually just watched it on TV this afternoon even though I own a Blu-ray copy of it. I read the book and was very disappointed but the movie certainly made up for it. One scene that I love is when Andy Sachs transforms into a Runway girl and you see her walking to work in all sorts of outfits. Anne Hathaway was perfect for this movie. Her haircut in the movie when she gets a makeover is one of the inspiration for me to cut bangs. Here are some of my favorite lines from the movie:
Emily: Andrea, my God! You look so chic.
Andy Sachs: Oh, thanks. You look so thin.
Emily: Really? It's for Paris, I'm on this new diet. Well, I don't eat anything and when I feel like I'm about to faint, I eat a cube of cheese. I'm just one stomach flu away from my goal weight.
Emily: Okay, I am hearing this...
[she moves her hand in a speech mimicking sign]
Emily: And I want to hear this.
[she closes her hand]
Miranda: That's all...
2. Remember the Titans - this is a feel good movie, one that isn't a chick flick. I love football movies even though I don't understand a thing about the game. If you haven't seen this movie, go and watch it. There is so much meaning been the whole story, oh wait, it's based on a true story (and if you are a Sons of Anarchy fan, Opie had a lead role, Gary Bertier, in this movie, it's a huge transformation). And Ryan Gosling is in it, although he isn't as sexy as he is now. Here are some of my favorite lines from the movie:
Older Sheryl: People say that it can't work, black and white. Here, we make it work every day. We still have our disagreements, of course, but before we reach for hate, always, always, we remember the Titans.
Coach Boone: [to his players] Tonight we've got Hayfield. Like all the other schools in this conference, they're all white. They don't have to worry about race. We do. let me tell you something: you don't let anyone come between us. Nothing tears us apart. In Greek mythology, the Titans were greater even than the gods. They ruled their universe with absolute power. Well that football field out there, that's our universe. Let's rule it like titans.
3. Step Up 2 - I love dance movies, but this movie, I tend to watch it more often than others and it's probably because I like every single dance routine in it. The first Step Up was more romantic where as this one is more about street dancing. One of my favorite dance scene is when they are salsa dancing to Robin Thicke's Everything I Can't Have and also the final battle scene.
Picking three movies is tough. There are so many that I like but these are ones that stick out. If I were to ask you to name three movies on the spot, what would they be? It's tough to answer huh?
