Well, I was just reading that last post, and I blush to see all the typos! I DO know how to proofread (sort of), so I can only blame the late hour and my excitement over seeing one of my favorite movies again!
Speaking of movies, I finally got around to seeing Revenge of the Sith today. Definitely entertaining, and Hayden Christensen is really a hottie (though I read recently he lost the 20 pounds of muscle he put on for this film and is now back to Shattered Glass dimensions again. Sigh. But he was cute in that, too). Great romance, though, this movie ain't. I didn't believe for 2 seconds that it was Great Love that made him do crazy/evil things like mow little kids down with a light saber. It just didn't move me the way the best romantic movies do, so I decided to go through my DVD shelf and see what some favorites are. Here are a few:
1) Roman Holiday (natch!), Breakfast at Tiffany's, Sabrina, Charade, How to Steal a Million. (All Audrey, of course, so at the top of the list)
2) Last of the Mohicans ("I will find you!")
3) Romeo and Juliet (the Zeffirelli version, not the Leo Di Caprio shoot 'em up, though that one had its moments, too)
4) Shakespeare in Love (passion, nudity, and Shakespeare quotes, plus some witty references to Marlowe, John Webster, tourism, and ticket gouging! I am so there)
5) The English Patient (love those Fiennes boys, I guess)
6) Titanic (best costumes ever, unless in Shakespeare in Love)
7) Persuasion (my favorite of the Austen adaptations)
8) Lost in Translation (never would I have thought a Bill Murray movie could be so romantic, but it was)
Anyway, that's just a few. I'm sure I'll think of 12 more as soon as I get off-line. :) I'm always looking for new-to-me movies, and always curious to hear what other people think are "romantic" cinema moments, so let me know what some of your own faves are! In the meantime, I think I'll pop in Breakfast at Tiffany's and cry over that dang cat again. Tomorrow it's back to work.
