Top 10 Favorite Movies of All Time

Tuesday, April 18, 2023

Since this is a book blog, I rarely mention something other than books. I tend to not go into my day-to-day happenings and rarely, mention the movies I love. Years ago, I posted movie reviews along with my book reviews but I preferred writing about books instead. However, to change it up a little, today I will be sharing some of my favorite movies of all time. 

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is: Top 10 Non-Book Freebie - Top 10 Favorite Movies:

The Princess Bride: At the core of this, the movie celebrates the joy of storytelling and reading. I love it so much!

The Conjuring: A horror movie is ten times more frightening when it says, "Based on true events." I've met part of Ed and Lorraine Warren's (the movie follows a case of theirs) investigative team and got to hear a bunch of their real-life investigations. Knowing how there are aspects of the true events, the movie becomes even more chilling!

The Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring: What a movie! I know it's quite long, but it's a classic adventure fantasy. And it's based on an amazing book!

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty: This movie is a love letter to travel. It's gorgeous and spontaneous. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it!

Forever Young: It's an older movie, but I love it all the same. The movie is a romance of the best kind. It follows kids who find a cryogenically frozen pilot in an old warehouse. The pilot discovers that, despite being frozen for some time, his true love still lives and he intends to find her before time catches up to him. So fantastic!

Inception: This screenplay is next level amazing! The complex structure of being within a dream and the different levels of the conscious just blows my mind every time I watch it. The open ending also always leaves me with questions.

Pirates of the Caribbean - The Curse of the Black Pearl: I must admit, this is probably where my love for pirates originated. Any book or movie with pirates in them is usually an automatic win for me.

The Illusionist: In a similar vain of The Prestige (which is a great movie too!), The Illusionist revolves around the allure of magic and illusions. It's a murder mystery with magic elements and when the case comes together, it will most definitely blow your mind.

Knives Out: This one is a classic who-done-it mystery. The large fantastic cast of characters makes this movie even more enticing and fun; it will certainly keep you guessing until the very end.

Split: James McAvoy should have won an award for his portrayal of Kevin in this. He is a true star!

Have you seen some of these? Let me know your favorite movies!

  1. Oh yes! I grew up on The Princess Bride! It's one of my all time fave movies! I can remember a time or two when we had to watch it in a class, and when the teacher handed us the worksheet to fill out to make sure we are watching the movie I remember answering all the questions before she even hit play! Lol!

    The first POTC is definitely my favorite as well! Loooove that movie to pieces! The Illusionist was another good one! That one totally blew me away! Great picks!
