Some of My Favorite ~Movies~

Hello, hello! So, I thought it would be fun to share with you all some of my favorite movies from some different genres. These are just in alphabetical order.

1. Action
Okay.  Action movies are my absolute FAVORITE!!  I can't think of just one that tops them all (besides LOTR for all movies, but I have that in Fantasy:)), but some of my favorites are; The Bourne movies, the Mission Impossible movies, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Superhero movies, The A-Team, and a bunch of others that I can't think of right now, but you get the idea. :)

2. Animation
Okay, this is so hard.  There are so many animated films I love!  But some of my favorites are; Pixar movies (minus Brave), Robin Hood, Cinderella, Tangled, Big Hero 6, Peter Pan, The Croods, and more.  One animation that I cried at that I did not know that I would was, Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast.  That ending...sniff.

3. Comedy
My least favorite genre.  Comedy.  Don't get me wrong, I love to laugh!  But these kinds of movies aren't my particular favorite.  I watch them once in a blue moon (except for Elf, but I'm kind of burned out with that one), unlike action that I can watch every day.  So, a comedy I like would have to be, any of the Tim Hawkins movies.  I know, I know, it isn't a "movie," but they are my favorite none the less! :)  He's so funny!

4. Drama
Hmmm...well one I really like is Hugo. That movie is so cute and sweet.  I just love it. <3  Otherwise, I can't really think of anything else.  Apparently I don't watch a lot of dramas. :)

5. Fantasy
THE LORD OF THE RINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!  No you don't understand, these are my FAVORITE movies of ALL TIME!!!!!  And they always shall be.  I just LOVE them!! *happy sigh*  Best. Movies. Ever.  That's all.

6. Horror
Um...I'm not much for horror unless its the old kind.  I find them kinda funny.  So, with that being said my favorites are The House On Haunted Hill (1959) with Vincent Price, The Mummy (both new and old, but I don't find them scary), and I liked The Invasion of the Body Snatchers(I watched both, but I like the one from 1956 the best).  It's so creepy!

7. Musical
I LOVE musicals!  Well, I just love music in general.  My current favorite musical would have to be, La La Land.  It was WONDERFUL!!!  Very classic.  The music, dancing, outfits, everything.  If you haven't seen it I HIGHLY recommend it!!  Kind of interesting, but extremely cool, Ryan Gosling actually plays the piano in all of the parts!  It's amazing!!  And my other well loved favorite is of course, The Phantom of the Opera.  I have always loved it ever since I was little and I always shall. <3

8. Mystery
My favorite mystery would have to be Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downy Jr. I like the first one the very best, the second one isn't my favorite.  Another fun mystery I liked and has a fun story for the first time I saw it, would be Nancy Drew from 2007.  Surprisingly, they consider it a comedy.  Huh.  Interesting.  Moving on, you want to hear the story of the first time I saw it?  Okay, here it is.

It was my sister, Madison's 10th birthday and she wanted to have a sleepover with our friends.  The movie was, of course, Nancy Drew.  So here we are a bunch of girls 8 to 10 years of age piled in the family room with snacks, blankets and pillows(lucky me got a whole couch to myself!:)).  The room is dark except for the movie playing...we are at a darker part when all of a sudden we hear a noise and someone comes into the room.  They all freak out, I don't particularly remember freaking out, but they all did!  And into the room walks...one of the girls.  She had gone to the bathroom and flushed the toilet and freaked the other girls out.  I like to look back on that fun slumber party and remember the flush of the toilet and staying up way to late.  XD

9. Romance
Ah...yes, romance.  Again, I don't know if I have a sole "favorite," but some of my favorites would have to be Pride and Prejudice(both 1995 and 2005), While You Were Sleeping, You've Got Mail, and others I can't think of right now.  I seem to read more romance books than watch romance movies. *shrugs*

10. Science fiction
It would have to be, Rouge One.  Sniff.  I just LOVED that movie!  I don't know how Star Wars will ever top it.  It was creative, original, and just awesome!!  I even liked Jyn.  You know, I'm not the biggest fan of Rey, shoot, I am not the biggest fan of female leads in general.  So I was kind of concerned about Jyn since I didn't really like Rey.  But she was great, I especially liked that she isn't the "main character."  I felt like they divided up the time pretty equally and didn't focus solely on her.  Which I appreciate!  I must add in I also love the Star Trek movies. Particularly the newer one from 2009.

11. Western
I actually really liked The Magnificent 7.  Another western I like is Tombstone from 1993.  My favorite thing about westerns besides the action is the facial hair!  <3

Well that is all for some of my favorite movies!!  Until next time~Morgan


  1. This was such a fun post, Morgan!

    So many good animated movies here, oh my. (Especially Tangled and Robin Hood...those are favorites of mine!)

    LOTR IS THE BEST. Just...so much yes! Those movies are my favorite movies of all time as well. THEY ARE AMAZING AND I JUST LOVE THEM SO MUCH. <333

    Ooh, I like musicals a lot, too! I haven't seen a ton, but Singin' in the Rain is one of my favorites. I kind of want to see La La Land, but there might be a little too much content for my tastes. Still, the music and costumes look SPLENDID!

    PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. ROGUE ONE. <333 That is all.

    I really enjoyed this post! And I'm loving the new blog look, too. ^_^

    1. Thank you, Mary!

      Thanks! Yes, I love those ones, too!

      YES it is!! AGREED!! <3

      I like Singin' in the Rain, as well! Such a cute movie!


      Thank you so much, Mary!! :)

  2. Nice list! I've seen the TV show but I've never watched the movie of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Is it good?
    I agree with you, action movies are the best! Although I tend to watch more action TV shows than movies...just because they are more available to me, I guess. :)
    Have you ever seen Now You See Me? It was really good except it had a lot of language:/

    ~Lydia~ <3

    1. Thank you! I really liked The Man From U.N.C.L.E.! I believe there were a couple scenes, but they can easily be fast forward. Besides that and I believe a bit of language, it is a really fun movie! :) YAY for action! ;D I really liked Now You See Me! Yeah, that is unfortunate.

      Thank you so much, Lydia!! <3

  3. I enjoyed reading this, Morgan! I didn't like 'Brave' either... it was weird in most parts and in other parts it was just 'wrong'. :)
    I don't really watch a lot of comedies either... as a matter of fact I can't think of any right now except for Mom's Night Out, which was pretty funny.
    Most comedies are just messed up these days. :P

    I think with movies and tv shows, drama is my favorite genre (historical drama to be precise!) I just love history and I love riveting plots, so when you mix the two together, you got a winner. :)

    I only like OLD horror movies as well, because they aren't very.... horrific. :) I really liked 'The Fly' with Vincent Price. THAT ENDING. IT MADE ME SO SAD. So yeah, I would recommend 'The Fly'. :)

    *GASP* Musicals... noooooooooo (I hate musicals except for a SELECT FEW). XD
    And also, noooooooooooo for Westerns! I have NEVER seen a Western movie that I liked. :)
    Yes, I know. I'm horrendous.

    Anyways, do you mind if I steal this 'movie genre' idea sometime? I think it would be kinda fun to write. :)
    Keep writing!

    1. Thank you, Amaris! I actually never saw Brave, but I heard what it was about and that's not my cup of tea. :)

      YES!! I loved Mom's Night Out!!! I totally forgot about that one!! Ugh. I should have remembered that one! Agreed, most comedies these days are messed up.

      Yes! Sounds exciting! What are some of your favorite "historical drama's"?

      AGREED! Oooo I have never seen 'The Fly'. Now I want to!

      :O You don't? That is so sad...but at least you like a few. ;)

      Please do! I would love to read what you put! Thank you so much, Amaris!! :D

  4. La La Land... ohmywordy YES and the music at the end!!!! *Sighs dreamily*

    1. Oh YES!!! That movie is positively scrumptious!!! The MUSIC!!! Ahhh, I just love it!! <3
