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.

Continuing with the recent post on my blog, I want to explore who I believe would be the best 3 actresses to play the character of Anastasia Steele.  I should say that I have been getting a lot of views on the Fifty Shades of Grey topics so this is a good indication that I am not the only one out there that is really excited for this movie to come out.

I have though long and hard about the choices that I have included.  There is something about all these actresses that embody the character and that I think could do a really good job.  I just hope that these actresses are open (i.e. nudity) because this is a role that cannot be PG – that would just not work and I don’t think people will tune in.  This is also a role that can make a career or break it.

So, here are my Best 3…Actresses to Play Anastasia Steele (from Fifty Shades of Grey):

1.  Alexis Bledel

2.  Allison Williams

3. Amanda Seyfried

My first choice is Alexis Bledel because she has the look, the eyes and that ability to bring out the innocence of the character.  I think that she is a good enough actress that she would be able to deliver a great performance and really make the character come alive.  She would be amazing.  Even though she is thirty  – I think that she could easily portray a 21 year old  (my only worry is whether she would agree to any nudity – if it was a requirement – that is also a worry with all the actresses that I picked – although I think that if they had done the research on the character, they would agree).

My second choice might be different for some.  Allison Williams is the daughter of NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams.  She currently is on HBO’s Girls.  I don’t know much about her yet she fits the look that I see for Anastasia.  She is relatively new at acting and this would be a career making role.  I just don’t know if she would take it specifically because of who her father is (hopefully that wouldn’t be an issue…but I don’t know her and I don’t know her family).  I like the idea of a new actress taking the role.

As for my last choice, I think Amanda Seyfried (with her hair dyed brown) could really pull off this character.  She is a great actress and I know if she was cast, she would do an amazing job.

All I can say is, I feel really bad for the people casting the movie…this is going to be such as hard choice.

If you are one of the lucky people out there who has falling in love, you understand that there is no other feeling like it out there in the world.  As for me, I am one of those lucky people.  I found my best friend, partner and soulmate early in my life and I have been with him ever since.   We fell in love (and continue to fall in love everyday).  Sure there are days when I would like to hit him over the head but then he does or says something that brings back my sanity and reminds me why I fell in love in the first place.  To find someone that knows you better than anyone else is truly a gift.  It makes life worth living.  It shapes the person you are and makes you better.  I am not saying that it is all “sunshine and rainbows” cause that is not the true.  Once you are in love, its hard work…and there are times when you want to give up and move on but something inside you keeps fighting and that is how you know it’s love.  So I wanted to devote a post about the best reasons to fall in love. (because I highly recommend it) – whether it be with your soulmate or whether you fall in love multiple times – either way – here are the Best 3…Reasons to Fall in Love:

1.  The way love makes you feel

2.  Sharing yourself with someone

3.  It’s fun!

The way love makes you feel is just great.  It makes you feel lighter like you have a bounce in your step.  It’s as though all your senses are on high alert – everything smells better, tastes better, looks better, etc.  The feeling just radiates through your body and it is amazing.  When you first fall in love – these feelings are magnified and sometimes as you get more comfortable with one another those feelings fade but never really go away.  Sometimes they can sneak up on you – for me its the butterflies or ‘funny tingle’ that I get in my stomach after not seing my husband for a few days…even after all this time together – that feeling always comes back for me.

When you fall in love, you really are opening yourself up to love and pain but that is one of the best reasons to fall in love.  Sharing yourself with someone else is probably the hardest thing you can do because you are letting down your guard and showing them the ‘real’ you and when you do, it is not only satisfying but has the ability to bring you even closer together.

For my last choice, a reason to fall in love is for the fun factor – it is fun.  It makes you feel invisible and like I mentioned above let’s you be yourself.  I have never had more fun with anyone else like I do with my husband.

As a final word on the subject, I’ve  included a video of “All You Need is Love” by The Beatles  – because wouldn’t that be nice if it was true.

Hope you enjoy and I hope that other will share their best reasons for  falling in love or just their stories of falling in love (what can I say – I am a sucker for love)
