Katelin's movie marathon.

If you've seen my tweets lately you've noticed that I've sort of become a movie watching fiend courtesy of Netflix on demand. I don't really know what started it but on Sunday after Christmas I was lazy and didn't know what movie to watch and I realized that there are so many movies I had on my queue. And from there my mini movie watching marathon began. In the past five days I have watched the following: The Bounty Hunter, The Duchess, The A-Team (on DVD not on Netflix), Babies, Moonstruck, Amelie, The Importance of Being Earnest and Steel Magnolias.

I mean yeah, it's slightly ridiculous. But at the same time I feel like I'm finally catching up with the world and oh man there are so many movies to go. Anyhoo, let's break the movies down a wee bit shall we?

The Bounty Hunter. Eh. I could have passed on this one. Although I didn't mind watching Gerard Butler, I mean he's like a cleaner Johnny Depp and still suave and rugged and yes please.
The Duchess. So freaking fascinating. I can tell why Kiera was nominated for this, she was superb. Then again I love all period pieces and this one was no different and made me want to read all about the Duchess of Devonshire, I definitely recommend checking it out.

Babies. Oh the bebes! This documentary was so cute and interesting and had no words but just four bebes from four different places and yes, check it out.

Moonstruck. "Snap out of it!" For once Nic Cage didn't bother me, but rather made me laugh quite a bit and Cher, she was pretty great as well.

Amelie. Adorable and quirky and one you should have watched by now.

The Importance of Being Earnest. Oh those Brits know how to make a funny movie and seriously add Colin Firth to anything and I'm sold.
Steel Magnolias. I want Dolly Parton to be hair stylist and BFF, seriously too ridiculous. Such a cute and very 80s and adorable and girly movie. Lurve it.


Fun times all around basically and if only I had more time to watch more movies I totally would. There are so many more movies on my queue and basically Netflix is running my life!

So anything I should add to my queue? Seeing any good old movies recently?





happy thursday!

Moonstruck! I love that movie. It's so sweet. Amelie is a great pick too.

Steel Magnolias is a staple here in The South. It is a requirement for all lil souther belles to watch. haha

Will be adding The Duchess and The Importance of Being Earnest to the top of my Netflix queue. Thanks for the recap!

Unfortunately I have not seen any of the movies you recently watched. I will have to make a note to watch them all except maybe Babies, I just don't like documentaries. Thanks for the reviews :)
