It has been a while since I’ve had a new post.  Life has been a little crazy and my mind just wasn’t into my blog.  However, I am back and have a plethra of new topics that I can’t wait to share.  One topic in particular is the exciting new movies that I am so excited to see.  Let’s face it, I have been a little disappointed in some of the movies that have been coming out lately and haven’t been not that excited to go to the movies (except The Avengers – really enjoyed that movie) and spend a lot of money.  That feeling has changed lately because I caught a few new movie trailers that have made me soooo excited.

So, here are the Best 3…Movies (that I’m  excited to see):

1.  Anna Karenina

2.  The Bourne Legacy

3.  Total Recall

Anna Karenina has been made into a few movies before but not like the one that will  be coming out and starring Keira Knightley, Jude Law and Aaron Johnson.  I love this book.  It has everything – drama, romance/epic love, sadness/depression, tragedy and so much more.  The minute that I saw the trailer – I was hooked.  It just looks grand and just what a period piece should be (did I mention that I love any period piece!!!  They are my favourite movie) and combined with this book, I just know it will be magical and spectacular.

The second best movie that I am looking forward to is the new installment of The Bourne Legacy.  Since I really enjoyed the first set and since I have such a crush on Jeremy Renner (just look at his amazing arms) – I’m excited for him to take on this role.  I love this type of action film and I love that Rachel Weisz.  They will be the best coupling!

My last movie is Total Recall.  I have seen the original but I am totally interested in the remake/update version starring my favorite actor Colin Farrell (honestly he is another gorgeous actor who I have a crush on…I think its because he is Irish).  Anyway, it looks awesome and just jammed packed with action and will be worth the movie ticket (and popcorn price) to see it.

Like many millions of people, I was lucky enough to see The Avengers this week.  It was a great movie.  I wasn’t sure whether I was going to like it but the movie, the acting and all the effects were really enjoyable and reminded me of why movies are such great entertainment.  The movie then got me thinking about all the superhero characters that have been invented and I found myself also imagining what superhero and powers I would like to have.  I can’t wait until The Avengers 2 – so excited – also looking forward to Iron Man 3, Thor 2 and Captain American 2!!!

This was truly hard because what wouldn’t I want to have! I would love to fly, have super strength, command the weather (which would mean it was always sunny and nothing would be able to grow from the lack of rain because I simply don’t like rain) or leap from tall buildings.  All of those abilities and powers sound awesome.  It just makes me smile to think of myself as a superhero.  Therefore, I wanted to devote a post to the superheroes that I believe are the best (I know there is going to be some disagreement with this post and that is ok with me – bring it on!  – see I sound like a superhero now!).

So here are the Best 3…Superheroes:

1.  THOR

2.  BATMAN

3. ROGUE (from the X-Men)

Honorable mentions: Superman, Iron Man, The Invisible Woman, The Thing, Beast (from X-Men), Emma Frost and Storm.

My first choice was easy – he is a god, has amazing strength, knows how to use a hammer and can summon and control the elements (God of Thunder).  He helps defend earth and all humans and is just plain awesome.  I don’t think there is much else to say about him. 

For my second choice, I chose a superhero that doesn’t really have any  powers but is just one-badass superhero.  He is strong, smart, funny, and takes care of the residents of Gotham City.  He lives his one life as Bruce Wayne but goes out at night when he is needed and just takes care of all the bad guys.  He is complex and just a great superhero.

My last choice may surprise some people but I really like Rogue.  She is gifted with some great powers but also some that haunt her.  Absorption of memories, skills, and powers through skin to skin contact, occasional super strength and flight.  She is the superhero I would most like to be – she has powers that are very different then other superheroes.  The only down side is her inability to touch anyone – direct skin to skin.

Let me know what superheroes you love!

BEST 3…80s movies

The first Best 3 of Everything had to be the best 80s movies. Why you ask would I chose that as my first best 3? Well it all revolves around the fact that I was one of the millions of people out there that was unfortunate enough to catch a cold. I was feeling miserable and spent the day curled up on my sofa with Netflix. So here is the list…

1. Sixteen Candles

2. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

3. The Goonies

In this case, there are alot of honorable mentions such as Dirty Dancing, Weird Science, The Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink, Girls Just Want to Have Fun, Top Gun.

Sixteen Candles is my number one choice.  It has everything – romance, comedy, drama.  It’s a movie that you can never get tired of watching and let’s face it, Jake Ryan is still hot (even in 2012) and he picked her!    There is so much good that I can say about it but I won’t bore you.

      

As for my other two choices, they are the movies that I remember most.  They are filled with great characters, scenes and just what I think a best 3 movie should be made of.
