Number 38

"That'll do, pig. That'll do." - Farmer Hoggett

You have no idea how hard it was to find a picture for this movie. Titled: Babe, you can understand. I turned on google safe search and all was well. I don't recommend following in my footsteps, Gretchen and I were scarred. Anyway, this movie is very lovely. It's about a pig who thinks he's a sheep dog. Quite heartwarming.

Number 39

"That's not your grandfather." - George

One night we couldn't agree on what to watch. It was causing the worst possible fight over the stupidest thing when (for some reason) Dad popped in Hard Day's Night, the movie by the Beatles. We all shut up and watched it. So, music can really sooth the savage beast.

Number 40

"Just a drink, a Martini, shaken not stirred. " - James Bond (Goldfinger 1964)

I have to thank my Norwegian buddy Liv and her family for introducing me to the wonderful world of the double O's. Yes, all of the movies are just to good to chose just one for the list, so because I made up this challenge I'm going to allow myself to choose all of the them for number 40. Call it cheating, but I don't see anyone else trying to dwindle down their top 100 movies. Do ya like the picture? I was looking for something neutral enough, but still convey what number 40 is. If you haven't seen any of the older movies I suggest you go right out and rent one so you can say you've seen a classic James Bond and then the world won't think you're a complete loser. (or that you live under a rock)

Number 41

"Story of my life. I always get the fuzzy end of the lollipop." - Sugar

This lovely movie is quite the knee slapper. Some Like It Hot might be and oldie, but it's a goodie. And if you don't agree then I guess that nobodies perfect.

Let Them Eat Cake


What a wonderful way to start off the week. Courtney's birthday is today people of the internet. Weather you read from afar or from across the street let it be known that 16 years ago a wonderful girl was born and five years later I met that girl in Kindergarden where I thought she was cool from the moment I saw her because we both had hair down to our waists. Happy Birthday girlfriend! You deserve all of the love coming your way today :)

Number 42

"You know forks were invented so that man could at least make a pretense of separating himself from the apes." - Joanna

Meghan's gonna laugh at me. Just like she laughed when she saw it on my list. Overboard is a wonderful romantic comedy, where the two actors fell in love for real! Aww..

Number 43

"Well, it ain't Easy Street, but at least I'm wearing silver!" - Lilly

I have to admit the reason why I like this movie/musical so much is because Mom played Lilly St. Regis in a community production of the musical Annie. She did it the only way she knew how, with lots of pink feathers and sparkles.

Asher or C.J.

This past week I was riding in the car with my dad and the radio station was asking the viewers a question. The question was: Would you rather work at the White House for the President of the United States or work as a professor at Harvard University?

Both are upstanding jobs, and neither are skimpy on the pay so it really comes down to what you envision yourself doing. Although it might depend on your opinions about the current president when asked this question, so I can see why a chunk of people would jump at the Harvard choice.

So, are you more like Asher Fleming from Gilmore girls, do you want to teach classes and have a love affair with a student? Or are you more like C.J. Cregg from The West Wing, willing to stand by the President of the United States being the first to hear about some of the top news stories?

Number 44

"If you refuse this offer, you will be the most ungrateful, wicked girl, and the angels will weep for you." - Professor Henry Higgins

It's basically the music that makes My Fair Lady so lovely (british) to me. Plus Audrey is gorgeous, but Julie Andrews should have played her. According to her memoirs they were actually good friends and never were at war over the part. Yep, you learn something new each day.

"I guess this makes you the damsel in distress, huh, handsome?" - Queen Narissa

A Wonderful little musical that made me giggle. Enchanted is worth the watch.

"Neither am I a Maypole. Kindly stop spinning about me." - Mary Poppins

I'm a bit obsessed with Julie Andrews. (Mary Poppins)

West What?

What ever happened with you and this show Meghan?

Truly The Most Exciting News

Lauren Graham and Peter Krause are officially dating! We know her as Lorelai Gilmore from Gilmore girls and you might know him as Nate Fisher from the HBO show Six Feet Under. Right now they star each others siblings in the NBC show Parenthood. I'm so excited! I love these two!

Number 47

"In this town, murder's a form of entertainment." - Mama

Ah, good ol' Chicago. What a lovely musical. I can see why it won Best Picture in 2003, along with five other Academy Awards. It was the first musical since 1996 to win at Best Picture. The singing and dancing, plus the overall story line makes it wonderful.

Number 48

"What's his type? Wilting flower? Bright and bubbly? Or smoldering temptress?" - Satine

It's really funny seeing Obi-Wan play a romantic character that sings. The same visionary director who was part of Romeo + Juliet was the some one for this movie, Mulan Rouge. It's so sweet. I remember watching it at Tess's and asking her before hand if it was a sad movie. She said no so we watched the Sex and the City movie then this one. Oh, it was quite sad, but one of the best movies ever!

"...and then there was the time he walked up to this group of tourists and they were petrified because A they were obviously lost, and had probably never spoken to a drag queen before in their lives... and he... she just offered to escort them out of Alphabet City... and then she let them take a picture with her and then she said she'd help 'em find the Circle Line..." - Mark

Aside from Maureen I really like all of the characters in Rent, the opera to movie. The first time I watch it, it was all thanks to Ragan. She borrowed it to me when she heard I had never seen it. So, it's 2am and I'm sitting in my room and I'm crying my eyeballs out over this amazing movie. The music is the best, well I guess it's what tells the story, and the people who sing it are beyond this earth!

My Saturday

This took me 5 and 1/2 hours to edit. Please watch it.

Number 50

"YOU'RE nervous? An 11 year-old is cutting my hair!" - Annie

Ah, Lindsey before she found drugs. This is what I strive to remember as Comcast keeps on informing me of how she failed her drug test. The Parent Trap is a classic re-make, but I like this version better then the other. True, I haven't seen the other one fully, but I still stick to my guns. Imagine using a British accent for half the movie. My dad wouldn't make it (right Courtney!)

Because It's Fall

*I've been meaning to post this picture for a long time. It makes me giggle.

4 am

Courtney and I were talking last night before dance and we both agreed that we couldn't wait for the Sophomores Suck chant during the pep fest for Homecoming. Sadly as I lay in half sleep mode last night I had a feeling I wasn't going to school. Waking up at 6:30 my tong felt like leather and I couldn't breath through my nose. It stunk, but not literally because I couldn't and still can't smell. Poor Gretchen has this too. She's been up since four and ended up puking because she drank too much water. Yea, I didn't know that someone could do that. Well.....I've had an eventful day. Here's to more Vicks!

Number 51

"Put some Windex." - Gus

Because who doesn't wish they were Greek? (My Big Fat Greek Wedding)

Number 52

"Why not? I always wanted to meet Mrs. Thorwald." - Lisa

The true classic, Alfred Hitchcock did a splendid job as the director for Rear Window. I know all sorts of interesting facts about this movie that I won't bore you with. It's a little funny that I can hate one of Hitchcock's movie and love an other one at the same time.

Number 53

"I fit in better than you. At least I'm wearing cowboy boots." - Vinny

I know I have expressed my deep dislike towards courtroom scenes to Courtney. Jodi Picoult has way to many of them in her books and I'm completely Law & Ordered out, but My Cousin Vinny takes place in a court room (in fact Vinny is a lawyer) and I could never imagine getting sick of this wonderful movie.

Number 54

"I was hiding under your porch because I love you." - Dug

Five minutes after the credits started to roll and I still wasn't letting up. I was sitting the the Woodbury 10 theater bawling my eyes out over the movie Up. It was sad! The first fifteen or so minutes are of his life with his wife who dies! Goodness, now I can get thought the movie like a regular person, that is no fits of crying, but it's still a touching movie.

Number 55

"Now if you two don't mind, I'm going to bed before either of you come up with another clever idea to get us killed - or worse, expelled." - Hermione

The Harry Potter series really has made it big in print and on the screen. Many good books have flopped in theaters (hem...Twilight) but Warner Brothers has done a magnificent job on all of the movies. Makes me walk away wishing I was a witch and had a british accent. (below for your viewing pleasure)

Number 56

"It takes a very secure man to walk like that." - Gracie

We all need a little girl power every once and a while. Miss Congeniality conveys that perfectly with guns. Though all of the smart remarks Gracie makes and the situations she finds herself in (stage diving to prevent lighting up) through it all she has sarcasm (and a gun!). Can you tell the theme here? We're very pro guns.

Officially Fall

I know it's not officially Fall until September 22ed, but if you walk outside you'll see that it's Fall. The smell of crisp leaves in the air and the wind is starting to sting more then cool you off. The stores know this too. All of the Fall sales and magazines showing the Fall fashion lines. It's perfect weather for fashion. Cold enough to wear long pants, but warm enough not to have to bundle up in big parkas that ruin the outfit. Ah, I just love this time of year, aside from the whole school business. Yuck.

Number 57

"Ok, here's the deal. I have a hangover. Who knows what that means?" - Dewey

This movie needs no explanation. School of Rock.

Number 58

Milly: Say something nice, Gideon.
Gideon: Nice night for a coon hunt.

A classic musical, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is wildly entertaining and the songs stay in your head for hours. Though not a popular as some musicals it is one of my personal favorites. I can't really explain it so, here's a video. (which only Meghan will watch...)

Number 59

"Somebody up there has got it in for me. I bet it's my mother." - Donna

You can't argue with me when I say that Meryl Streep's hair in Mamma Mia is simply amazing! The whole movie is a ball of colors and bright lights. The clothing is to die for (how they have some of those things on that tiny island i'll never know) and the characters are so funny! Plus, the songs! Cause what's a musical without some music?

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

Number 60

"I can't marry Ryan. Ewww!" - Anna in Tess's body

Who couldn't love a mother daughter story like Freaky Friday? It's funny and it's before Lindsey went downhill. Ah, good memories. Plus, Gibbs from NCIS is in it! It's really weird seeing him playing someone other then Gibbs, but overall the movie is sweet! I like it a lot better then the 1976 vision. They do a great job playing the other person. And Chad Michael Murry is laugh out loud funny! Imagine falling in love with your crush's mom....ewww.

Number 61

Pumbaa: It's our motto
Young Simba: What's a motto?
Timon: Nothing, what's a motto with you?

Not only did The Lion King premier in 1994 (the best year on earth) but it's just awesome. I though we needed something to take out minds off the date today. Man, I sure could just watch all of the Disney movies for the rest of my life and never go back to that stupid building. Any who, I used to play with figurines of these characters and would wake Mom up early to make her play Scar. Yep, inventive little kid I was.

Number 62

"Did someone call for a doctor?" - Rusty

If only conning people was as easy as in Oceans 11. In this movie the lines are blurred and the bad people turn into the good and the good into the bad. You end up rooting for the robber with a criminal history instead of the wealthy, law abiding, casino owner. And when it all seems to be going to pot, Rusty and Danny pull the ace out of there sleeves and save the day.

Number 63

"There's that word again; "heavy". Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the earth's gravitational pull?" - Doc

I figured since were going back to school it would be a good time to talk about Back To The Future. Only the most classic movie of all time. If you haven't seen it wither you were born after 1990 or you really don't get out much. (or you have a social life) Aside from all of the great dialogue (above) in the movie it's also a very cool concept. A guy goes back in time and changes history, but in a good way. (a little like Hot Tub Time Machine) Plus the outfits are to die for!

Saturday, September 4, 2010

Number 64

"That was totally wicked!" - Boy on Tricycle

Possibly the best Pixar movie, ever. The Incredibles is amazing, and i've watch it in two languages (English and Norwegian) and laughed in both. The characters look so fun and stream lined and EDNA! She's my absolute favorite. (My God, you've gotten fat!) Mr. Incredible is kinda stupid through the whole movie (plus Mirage? Come on...) and it would have been completely fine if he would have just told his wife what was going on, but then it wouldn't have been the best movie ever.

Friday, September 3, 2010


Tonight, while back to school shopping, I discovered two things.

1. Nine at night on a Friday is a perfect time to shop because there is nobody around except for the sales people who cater only to you.

2. Jeggings!

Isn't that word just fun to say! Jeggings, jeggings. I think the sales guy thought I was weird. But come on! It's like wearing sweatpants that look like real world pants. I could sleep in these babies!

Number 65

"Your vote of confidence is overwhelming." - Grandpa

Ah, The Princess Bride, perhaps one of the most romantic movies of all time, plus it's quite funny. It was Ragan's parents first movie date, yep exciting news. I also really like that Indigo Montoya quote, I use it a lot. The whole Grandpa Grandson thing in the beginning (and other places) is a nice way to tie the story together and have someone to explain what's going on. Just adorable. And, is it just me, or does Westley (above middle) look like Dr. Chase from House?

Kay: I read this, in this fantastically depressing book, that when you jump from a building, it's rarely the impact that actually kills you.
Penny: Well, I'm sure it doesn't help.

I don't know what it was that made me buy Stranger Than Fiction, but it was worth it. After my in home screening I felt like a needed to write a book. That hasn't happened.

Number 67

"How did he do it? a) He Cheated b) He was Lucky c) He's a Genius d) It was written."

"We were screaming our heads off telling her to pick up the phone!" as Austin tells me his and Ragan's final moments of the movie Slumdog Millionaire, I remember my final moments watching that amazing movie, sheer panic and lots of screeming. I also remember the 2008 Academy Awards where they cleaned it out. I had never seen the movie, but after winning that many awards I figured I had to see this amazing movie! And thanks to Gaby and Laura I now own one of the best movies ever made.
