You can take the girl out of Hollywood...

Just a few posts ago, I boasted that Matthew and I don't have a TV here in Scotland, thus freeing up loads of free time in which to be creative and productive. But, I forgot to mention that we've been watching movies. Some out in theaters and some by using his computer like a dvd player. Lucky for us though, every one we've watched has been really great in its own way. Here are all the flicks we've seen on this side of the pond accompanied with  my own little quips and a few fun clips. Happy Friday!

Maltese Falcon (1941)

Bogey at his prime- tough, smart and totally cool. If you don't like this movie, then you're none of those things ;)

The Wicker Man (1973)
Campy, creepy and fun, The Wicker Man might just be my new favorite cult classic! I think a lot of folks in the theatre appreciated Willow's Song... you know, because her voice is so pretty!

The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash (1978)
A silly spoof on the fab four with amazingly Beetle-esque tunes, and there's this too!

An American Werewolf in London (1981)
Wait... did I already say The Wicker Man is my new favorite cult classic? Because this one was fantastic as well.  I realize that the only horror movies I actually enjoy are the ones that aren't scary... although this trailer seems pretty frightening!

Blue Velvet (1986)
Scarier than any of the horror movies I've seen lately. Best line ever... "WHY ARE THERE PEOPLE LIKE FRANK?"

A Little Princess (1995)
Saw this remix on a blog and had to see the movie...

Toy Story (1995)
I see why Pixar became instantly loved by everyone. So fresh and innovative, was it really made 17 years ago? Jeebus.

Layer Cake (2004)
Drugs. Violence. Dumbledore?? Layer Cake was one of those capers you really had to pay attention to, and even then it was all screwy. But fun. For Potter fans it's a real trip, as the beloved Head Master isn't so beloved.

I'm Not There (2007)
Cate Blanchett is out of this world. Seriously, I think she is from another planet

Eagle vs. Shark (2007)
Sooo awkward and kinda mean feeling for the majority of the film. But ultimately sweet. And there are many many many quotable lines

Your Highness (2011)
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Best movie of 2011. I could watch it daily. (And now I can, because right here is the full movie.)  But if this doesn't make you laugh, it might not be for you.

Skyfall (2012)
It's Bond. And its in Scotland. Go see it.
