An incredible story starring Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne in Stephen Hawking’s life story. Eddie Redmayne does an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G performance as well as Felicity Jones. The costumes and photographic design is enchanting.
2. Gone With The Wind (1939)
3. Running On Empty (1988)
Danny (River Phoenix) is a 17-year-old kid who’s parents are always on the run. In River’s finest acting and a interesting plot that will keep you on the edge of your seat, it’s definitely one of the best.
and…..did I mention it’s River Phoenix?
4. Down To Earth (1947)
The lovely Rita Hayworth stars in this adorable film from the 40’s about a greek goddess named Terpsichore, who goes down to earth to be in a broadway play. With dancing, luscious costumes and fun jingles this one’s a never fail lovely.
5. A Far Off Place (1993)
With a very young Reese Witherspoon in this action-packed 90’s disney magical adventure set in Africa, this movie will inspire you to want to only watch good films like these. I love to watch 90’s disney films, back when life was good…
6. War Horse (2011)
Seeing this film makes me want to give Steven Speilberg a hug. 🙂 War Horse, has it all, action, costuming, photographic direction, and best of all a grand story full of passion and a definite tear-jerker.
7. The Wizard of Oz (1939)
It’s the wizard of oz, what more could be better right? Seriously, the effort that was put into this incredible move shows with amazing colors, very detailed costuming, sets and the whole thing was completely done without SGI and on a sound stage! Ah…I wish I had ruby slippers to click myself back to the 30’s.
8. A Little Princess (1995)
A Little Princess will always be one of my favorites as it was when I was little, and now that I watch it again I can appreciate just how well done the story, cinematography, and design of it all is. Not to mention the score, and great colors!
9. Tracks (2011)
This is a subtle film, but on a grand importance for its meaning and well created photographic genius. It’s based on the true story and book by Robyn Davidson who went across the Australian desert on her own, with one dog and four camels.
10. The New World (2005)
Terrence Malick’s genius in light, color and movement as well as writing tells the story of Pocahantas in a beautiful and truthful light.
And it has Christian Bale in it, which makes everything ok. 🙂
11. Peter Pan (1953)
A classic that will never die out, in such great music, color and overall magicalness that I’ll never get tired of.
