I'm not sure what your taste is but I love Across the Universe, Lars and the real girl, Into the wild, Hot Rod and Once.

Oh there's so many!

Do you like foreign films?
Favorites are La Vie en Rose, Paris Je T'Aime, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (amazing!!!) and of course Amelie is my all-time fave movie.

Some others: Once, The Devil and Daniel Johnston (more of a documentary type of his life but it's very touching), Little Miss Sunshine, Burn after Reading.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!! xoxo

I am Danielle and you are? said...

This is movie weekend for me! I watched Dan in Real Life at home (that is what I got this week from Netflix) and tonight I am going out to see Iron Man 2 with my brother. Tomorrow I might go out and see either Death at the Funeral or How to Train Your Dragon or maybe both!

But to the question you asked..I would make it a theme night, and nothing is better than an original cheesy horror movie marathon! Here is what I recommend:

1: Nightmare on Elm Street (with Robert Englund)
2: Friday the 13th (the original one!)
3: Psycho (with Janet Leigh and Anthony Perkins)
4: Night of the Living Dead (directed by George Romero)
5: Army of Darkness (starring my favorite actor ever BRUCE CAMPBELL!)

Anyway hope your weekend goes well!

I love audrey hepburn movies, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Sabrina, Roman Holiday, How to Steal A Million, Charade, etc.

That said, these are my five current favorite movies (in no particular order):
1. The Pagemaster
2. Persepolis
3. Let the Right One In (possibly the best vampire movie i've ever seen. EVER.)
4. Brick (Joseph Gordon Levitt. *swoon*)
5. The Royal Tenenbaums

hope it helps, and hope you have a nice weekend :)
