Day 01 - Favorite foreign film
This French version of one of my favorite novels "Notre-Dame de Paris" is definitely my third or fourth favorite film addition(my top two are the ones from 1997 and 1982; I also love the Disney one) and it is amazing! :D Most of the acting is very, very good, it holds up well for a film made in the 50s, it follows the book well(except for some things towards the end) , and was definitely an adaption I want to watch again(and remember, only watch the French version with English subs).
The Chinese film "To Live". I seriously wasn't expecting it to be as incredible as it was, but I ended up loving the film. The main reason having to do with the lead of the story. However, after a weird beginning, the film starts to get really good and, though sad, it is a classic by the end. Also, it was interesting to see how the Communist obession here corresponded with the communist hatred here int eh 60s. Whereas here people were all "You're a COMMUNIST!" over in China, people were like "You're a CAPITALIST!".
Day 02 - Most underrated film
The Star Wars Prequel Trilogy. These films are master pieces(Revenge of the Sith being my favorite movie ever), and yet, a lot of people don't see how good they are. :(
Day 03 - A film that makes you happy
"Return of the Jedi". The ending makes me so very happy :)
It definitely has its sad moments, but in the end, it has such a sad, yet happy (sad is happy for deep people) finish. Love the sequels too :D
As a kid who grew up reading the books and watching the movies, it was definitely bittersweet seeing the kids get on the Hogwarts Express while the theme by John Williams plays
Day 04 - A film that makes you sad
Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. I think you all know the reason for this being listed.....
Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. That ending....:(
"Les Miserables"; it has a sadly happy finish and I almost cried during the last song.
Day 05 - Favorite love story in a film
Hmmm...well, most of my ships are from books or TV shows, so....I don't know....
I do find Frollo liking Esmeralda interesting, but I absolutely DO NOT ship that.
I guess Hermione and Ron, even though it's from a book first.
Day 06 - Favorite actor/actress
You just HAD to ask, didn't you?
I'll make this as short as possible
Emilie de Ravin
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Day 07 - The best plot twist/ending
A lot of good plot twists were in TV shows for me, but the movies has some good ones as well.
For best plot twist- Darth Vader being Luke's father(which I already knew, due to Toy Story 2), the one at the end of Thor: The Dark World XD, the many in Serenity, several things in Avatar, the one in Iron Man 3 with the Mandarin, and the one that will be at the end of Catching Fire(It's awesome in the book and I hear it is really well done in the film).
For endings, I love: Revenge of the Sith, Return of the Jedi, The Phantom Menace, Return of the King, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2, Serenity, Les Miserables, my favorite Studio Ghibli films, Godspell, Big Fish, Children Who Chase Lost Voices, and Ender's Game.
Day 08 - The best opening/closing credits
Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and all the Marvel films :)
Day 09 - The best soundtrack/score to a film
Star Wars; basically anything by John Williams
Howard Shore's scores for the Lords of the Rings/The Hobbit films are genius are well.
Day 10 - Favorite classic film
Classic film? Let me think. I definitely will say the Star Wars films and Indiana Jones.
I'll go with these renditions of "The Hunchback of Notre-Dame"
Day 11 - A film that you hate
Twilight: The book was bland and the movie was just plain bad- the cinematography was AWFUL and the fight scene at the end was so lame my sister and I had to stop(we were watching it because we wanted to make fun of it; plus, she wanted to know the story, so she could also say she didn't like it, but she didn't want to read the book). Don't watch this. Ever
Barnyard. Dumb. Just DUMB! First of all bulls do NOT have udders; it's a FEMALE part makers of the film! :P And the correct term for a male is a bull(or a steer if they've been castrated). Dumb, dumb, dumb!
Day 12 - A film that changed your opinion about something
Thor and Iron Man 1. Before seeing these two films, I hadn't really seen any good super hero films, except for X-Men which I always considered as something different, and just as awesome, from the typical super hero film(though I've always been very interested in super heroes and loved playing games about those kind of people with my sister and cousin) . I remember being pleasantly surprised when, in Iron Man 1, Pepper didn't get captured or rendered into a weakling. I have these films to thank for me to getting fully into this genre.
Day 13 - A guilty pleasure
A guilty pleasure? I don't really have one
Day 14 - A film that you used to love but now hate
Except for a few lame kiddy shows I can't believe I used to like, I haven't stopped liking any film I love.
Day 15 - Favorite film sequel
All the Star Wars sequals(and prequels), the Lord of the Rings sequels, and that sort of thing. The Little Mermaid and Cinderella both had good sequels, surprisingly.
Day 16 - Film character you relate to the most
Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Samwise Gamgee, Hermione Granger, Eowyn, Thor, Loki, Luke Skywalker, and Jesse Aarons(from Bridge to Terabithia).
Day 17 - Favorite film quote
"You were my brother, Anakin. I loved you." - Obi-Wan Kenobi in Revenge of the Sith
Day 18 - A film that you wish more people had seen
A lot of my favorite movies have been seen, so I'll go with the not-so popular
The Hunchback of Notre-Dame (1997 and 1982 versions)
Day 19 - The most hilarious film you've seen
The Avengers definitely had me in stitches
"The Hobbit" also had some awesome humor
While being extremely serious and tense, this show was hilarious!! XD
Day 20 - A film you wish someone would make
Basically all of Jude Watson's Star Wars books
The Underland Chronicles by Suzanne Collins
