I’m in the writing mood tonight, and because I haven’t bought any new makeup in a long time, it will have to be about something non-beauty related. I’m a huge fan of watching movies, so thought I’d put together a list of my favourite films. These are only a handful of my faves; it’s late and I can’t remember them all!
Vanilla Sky. I know this movie got panned big time by critics, but I really love it! I like how you don’t know what happens at the end; it’s up to you to decide what really happened. I love the parts between Tom Cruise and Penelope Cruz; I think they had great chemistry and their scenes are very natural. It can definitely get a bit creepy at times, so I can’t watch this too late at night! Ha ha.
Inglorious Bastards. This movie is fantastic. I love the script, the acting, everything is perfection. It’s so violent and gory, yet so funny at the same time. My favourite character is the ‘Bear Jew’; he’s awesome and Christopher Waltz plays his villainous part to perfection. I’ve seen this film countless times and I never tire of it. I always enjoy Quentin Tarantino films; the dialogue between characters is always so interesting, fast paced and keeps you on your toes.

Spanglish. This is one of those movies you can watch over and over and never get sick of. I’m not a huge fan of Adam Sandler’s movies, but this one is different. I like how it touches on some very human issues like marriage, temptation, family etc.
The Wizard of Oz. My parents tell me I used to watch this movie every single day when I was a kid. That’s right folks, every single day. Nothing’s changed…I still love this movie and will watch it every single time it’s on tv. Truly a timeless movie that appeals to any age. Plus what girl hasn’t wanted a pair of ruby sequin heels at some point in their lives?

Vicky Christina Barcelona. Possibly one of the best romantic movies ever. It’s not exactly conventional; Juan Antonio is a charming artist who secuces two American friends which later turns into a tangled love affair with the arrival of his ex-wife. It’s funny, romantic and clever, which makes it very entertaining to watch.
Brides. It’s not a very well known movie, but it’s one I highly recommend. The film focuses on young migrant women who travelled from Europe to America by ship after the war. The main female lead is a young Greek woman who must go to America to make her family proud and to start a new life. On board is a young American photographer who documents the young proxy brides on their way to a new life in a new country. It’s a heartbreaking story of the sacrifices people make for their families, and the lengths people go to in order to start a new life.
