Four Things//Day Four

1) A Face in the Crowd (1957)

I love this movie! Andy Griffith gives a spectacular performance, so different from his other roles. It was surprising to see a darker side of him. If you've only seen him as Andy Taylor, be ready. It's a big transition. This movie is comical, a bit twisted, and at times, a little disturbing. I feel like this movie was way ahead of it's time and is definitely worth a watch.

2) Lars and the Real Girl (2007)

Okay, so this movie is a little strange, but it's one of my favorites! Ryan Gosling is SO awkward in this role, and it's amazing. I love how the community comes together in this movie. Touching and very funny, in a weird sort of way!

3) The Princess Bride (1987)

This is a classic. I love this movie! Parts of it are excessively silly, but I am still pretty obsessed. I love Inigo Montoya so, so much.

4) The Prestige (2006)

This is another great movie! I've seen it like 15 times and I still find more clues and different hints for the shocking ending throughout the movie. If you don't want to think when watching movies, I wouldn't recommend this one. But it's really an awesome story, with great actors. I love Christian Bale and Michael Caine. 

5 lovely notes:

I own it, but haven't watched it in forever...
Personally i wasn't a fan of Lars and the Real Girl...it just didn't hit my interest but no worries! :) ha.

Oh yay! I love old movie recommendations, I will definitely be queing the Andy Griffith one in my Netflix :D

LOOOOOOOOVEEEEEEEEEEEE the Prestige! Christian Bale is my older-man-celebrity-crush. He is ridiculously dreamy. I definitely want to see this one again.

Princess Bride is amazing, of course. I've never seen Lars and the Real Girl, I always thought it looked kinda silly. But you have good taste so maybe I should check it out ;)

Princess Bride has got to be one of the best movies of all time =) I quote it... more than I want to admit. The book is a great read too if you haven't picked it up yet.
