#72: Day Twelve –Top 5 Films (UPDATED)

Saturday, February 12, 2011

1. Romeo and Juliet


I’m not going to lie – I practically love this movie from the cast to the script to the writer and director. Olivia Hussey, I must say, was born for this role, and so was her co-star Leonard Whiting. The setting Franco Zefirelli (the Director) chose was PERFECT and the story was one of the best works of my ever favorite writer William Shakespeare. See what I mean when I said I loved every single detail about this film? And the clothes – the CLOTHES – were so right. I don’t know how else they could’ve made this better. You guys just HAVE to see this version of Romeo and Juliet. Forget the one with Claire Danes and Leonardo De Caprio (though I like these actors too). You can’t compare the original to a revival, ever. Even with music! But that’s another story.


2. Ever After



Drew Barrymore and Dougray Scott had such wonderful chemistry in Ever After, and the rest of the cast was just as impressive. I mean, with Angelica Houston’s villainous character, it was a perfect recipe for forbidden love. Of course, the script was equally as great with quotes from Thomas Moore’s Utopia and other “learnable” stuff in life. And I;m not forgetting the costumes. Let’s just say that if I had to rate it on a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being the lowest, I’d give it a 9. Hell yeah.


3. The Bourne Series



Again, Matt Damon was a WOW in this film. Acting the part of the best agent there is for the CIA, he worked really hard to act and look the role. This is even better than the James Bond films, seriously. I mean, it’s mostly charm and suits and women in the 007 films, but in the Bourne series, it’s pure skill, intelligence, and strategy. Sure there was his love life in The Bourne Identity, but that was it. It’s a great story about an agent tracking down his past and knowing who he is. Definitely a 10.


4. Rush Hour Trilogy



LOL, literally. Jackie Chan+Chris Tucker= HILARIOUS. I don’t know if they could’ve chosen a better cast. My brother and I have been watching all three films multiple times during the past two months and we haven’t grown tired of it at all. No matter how many times we watch it, we still get a kick out of seeing the partners kick but and make a fool of themselves. Action and Comedy go together so well in this trilogy.


5. Oceans Trilogy



Personally, not all George Clooney movies catch my attention. I think this is the first time I really liked him for his role, and I’m guessing it may be my last too. He plays a professional thief along with 11 other felons, and with a brilliant plan of robbing banks and other stuff, it’s a great film. Julia Roberts is also in this movie, but I’m not a fan. Seriously. It’s a nice in-your-face film. Haha.
