Top Ten: Movies (and some honourable mentions)

*Disclaimer: These movies are the best that I’ve seen and this list is based solely on my opinion, sorry if you disagree. Also, I’m aware that most of my favorite movies are cartoons, don’t judge*

First some honorable mentions:

The Little Mermaid (1989): I loved this movie growing up for no other reason than the fact that Ariel has red hair and I’ve wanted red hair in the past. Numerous times.

Saw (2004): I hate scary movies, hence why I’ve only seen the first movie, but it’s honestly a pretty good movie, and bearable scary.

National Lampoon’s Vacation, European Vacation, and Christmas Vacation (1983, 1985, and 1989): I was actually asked by a friend to watch Christmas Vacation, but then my dad told me to watch all three. I am so glad that he did because I was laughing my butt off the whole three movies. That was a fun night.

The Other Woman and What to Expect When You’re Expecting (2014 and 2012): I love the actresses in these movies, plus they have great endings. I hate predictable endings, but sometimes they’re good.

Interstellar (2014): I absolutely loved how this movie does a complete wrap around at the end and leaves you on the tips of your toes the whole time.

Now for my favorites:

10) American Sniper (2014): American Sniper is in my top ten because I hate the ending. I know that it makes no sense but in my mind it does. It’s a great movie with a great story and it deserves to be watched by everyone.

9) Funny Farm (1988): I love Funny Farm because it lives up to its title of being funny. I die (hysterical of course) when ever I watch this move. It’s definitely worth watching. Plus the ending it sweet and Yellow Dog is adorable.

8) Gravity (2013): Literally this movie is insane. I’ve seen it a few times, and still it drives me insane how things go down. Every time without fail.  This movie is so freaking intense and its 100% worth the watch.

7) Time Burton Movies [The Nightmare before Christmas (1993), Edward Scissorhands (1990), Corpse Bride (2005), BeetleJuice (1988), Alice in Wonderland (2010), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), Frankenweeine (2012), Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure (1985), and James and the Giant Peach (1996)]: I grew up on Tim Burton (thanks mama), and it has obviously contributed to my obsession with his movies. Besides the creepiness in every one of his movies, he tends to have Johnny Depp as his lead, or at least a significant role in almost every single movie. Which is great. I am looking forward to some of his upcoming movies which include BeetleJuice 2, Miss Perigine’s Home for Peculiar Children (and hopefully the rest of that book series), and Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass, which all come out next year I believe. There’s also a few movies of his that I haven’t seen yet because I’m not a huge fan of Batman, and I didn’t know the rest existed.

6) The Boxtrolls (2014): This is one of the most adorable interpretations of not judging a book by its cover. Seriously, this movie is adorable and I’m in love with it. Even though it is aimed towards smaller children, a teenager or adult can very well enjoy it.

5) The Book of Life (2014): Again, this movie is beyond adorable, and it made me act like I do when I read. I was shipping everything. And this movie made me mad so many times, and if you’re anything like me you’ll definitely want to stop watching it, but it’s amazing and I’m happy I watched the whole thing.

4) WALL-E (2008): This movie. Oh my lord. It has opened my eyes so much. Sorry to say this, but I’m like 95% sure that this movie is going to happen to us. Also, WALL-E and Eve are relationship goals. Take care of the planet, or we will end up fat and living in spaceships. That’s bad.

3) Big Hero Six (2014): BAYMAX! Oh my, I cried like a baby watching this movie. It’s so good. Ah I love Hiro and Tadashi and Baymax. And San Fransokoyo is the best mashup of names in my opinion.

2) Inside Out (2015): Besides the fact that Mindy Kaling is my spirit animal, and this is the movie I saw on my date, this is actually a great movie. When I was little, I always thought that their was little aliens living inside of me controlling me to do things. But of course I took science and found out it’s not aliens. If I’m being 100% honest though, sometimes i still believe that there is aliens inside of me. Don’t judge, I’m just a little insane.

AND………..

1) Monsters Inc. (2001): I grew up watching this movie. I’ve watched it so many times that I’m surprised I don’t know the words by heart. Seriously though, my mom said that when I was little I used to ask to watch it over and over again. I get why, it’s a great movie. Boo is adorable, Mike Wazowski is queen, and James P. Sullivan (Sulley) is so fluffy and amazing and I want to meet him in real life (yes, I’m aware he’s fictional). Another thing that has attached me to this  movie is that my mom used to call me Boo because she said I looked like her, also because I watched it so much. So Monsters Inc. just has a lot of history with me and it will forever be my favorite movie.

So, those are my favorite movies and of course they’re bound to change, with the exception of #1 and #2, but that’s me. I love my cartoons. And things don’t always have to make sense. Happy Sunday!

It’s Almost September…

September.

(That moment you realize welcome**** is spelled wrong but you like the picture too much to find a different one)

That means It’s almost fall. Almost time for sweaters and pumpkin flavored things. Almost time for school.

Honestly, I don’t hate school. I don’t necessarily like it either though. School is pretty much the only way I see my friends on a regular basis, and it’s also the only time I manage my time wisely. But, school also means that I care more for my appearance and I do better at waking up at decent times. To be fair, in the past week, I’ve been waking up before noon, so that’s pretty good.

Anyway, we finally got our schedules a few days ago, and originally I didn’t have physical education and had three electives, which is fantastic, but I need to have P.E. because I need to take the drivers ed course thing that we take sophomore year. So, now I have P.E.

I don’t really have classes with any of my friends. Honestly, that’s probably really good because I don’t know how to shut up, and I have set some pretty steep goals this year. I love my friends, just to be clear, but y’all are so distracting. I mean, of course I have classes with people I communicate with, but it’s not like last year where I had several friends in pretty much every single class.

And I almost forgot to mention, my school implemented block scheduling. That pretty much means you spend an hour in a class, but don’t go to all eight classes. Which in theory is a great idea being that I’m not a huge fan of all my teachers, and I want time to think things through, especially in Chemistry and Algebra II, but lets be real, gym for 55 minutes, 4 days a week is not my idea of fun. Well, actually I don’t mind a whole bunch because I had a lot of fun in gym last year when we weren’t running outside.

Anyway, in other news, surprise surprise I literally suck at writing regularly. Ideally, I wanted to write everyday, but that obviously hasn’t happened. I average about 3 posts a month if that. And what’s even better is that I have no excuse because I spend 85% of my time on the internet, and the rest sleeping, eating and occasionally hanging out with the one friend I have. But now she’s busy doing summer homework, and school is starting and we don’t even go to the same school so I wont see her ever again! By ever again I mean we are going to go at least 4-5 months after school starts without seeing each other outside of dance because between me debating and math leaguing (wow, didn’t think leaguing was a word) and her being a smarticle particle at her fancy academy school, we don’t have time, which really sucks. And this got really off track. So, I suck at writing, but I am taking a journalism class, so hopefully that will come in handy with me writing more often, or blogging with acing journalism. That’s why I started this paragraph, to tell you I was taking a journalism class, but I get so distracted. By virtually everything.

I think that’s pretty much the extent of my life since last time we talked, well I talked and you listened. Do I wish i had done more than binge watch movie this summer? Yes, but would I trade it to be part of society and socialize? absolutely not.

Oh I almost forgot, being that I watched a sad and rather large amount of movies, I am going to review my top ten movies of my life time, and then my top ten books of my life time, since I haven’t posted in a while. So keep a look out for those. Happy Saturday!
