Eye candy, sunsets and bullets. This 2001 classic follows the story of Danny and Rafe, their lives as soldiers and falling for the same girl (the lovely Kate Beckinsale who plays Evelyn).MichaelBayhits hard at getting personal with history and making us sob away. Its heartbreaking, gut-wrenching and full of explosions, kissing and dirty soldiers fighting for the good ol’USA. We’ll forgive Bay for the movie’s mishaps when it comes to historic fact. It’s a tear-jerker and a lovely one at that.
Johnny Depp’s offbeat characters are masterful and Edward Scissorhands is no exception. This goes back two decades ago and will leave you more in love with Johnny than ever. Johnny plays Edward who just happens to have scissors for hands. There is fantasy, humour and romance. It’sBurtonmagic like we’ve come to know. Edward is an unfinished creation who falls for Winona Ryder’s character. He knows only innocence andWinonasees Edward’s beauty.
It’s Tarantino cool. It’s a mix of four tales of violence and redemption. Two mob hit men, a boxer, a gangster’s wife, and a pair of diner bandits and eclectic dialogue that will keep you at the edge of your seat. Tarantino’s crazy storylines and dark sense of humour makes it a must-see. Samuel L. Jackson and Travolta with guns, a mysterious briefcase and punchy one-liners. Classic.
If you haven’t seen Lion King your life is sad. If I am a mommy one day, I’ll make sure my kids see it. If you don’t know (shun), it follows the story of a young lion Simba, his uncle Scar’s evil pursuit of the crown from Simba’s father Mufasa and all the courage, humour and catchy sing-alongs to keep you riveted and crying. It’s magical, encouraging and heart felt. Hakuna Matata and all!
Leo in all his bright-eyed innocence and Kate in all her magnificence and elegance. James Cameron, bow down. It’s epic, larger-than-life and a historic classic. It’s filled with that damn iceberg, crazy love scenes, sketching, jealousy, heroics and heartbreak. Titanic is one of those movies you could watch over and over again. Cameron’s attention to detail is amazing and Leo’s cute third-class romantic is hypnotizing. You will shudder at the history and pursuit of reckless abandon. Your heart will go on!
