So Kate did a post about newer movies and how she feels guilty about it. You are not alone, dear...
My favorite new-ish movies include:
Almost Famous (2000) - Soundtrack is amazing. I wanted to kiss Cameron Crowe's feet when Feel Flows by The Beach Boys started playing during the credits. Kate Hudson is equally brilliant and William Miller aka Patrick Fugit is freaking adorable.
Garden State (2004) - PERFECT. I've been obsessed with this for like 2 weeks. Again, the music is essential to create a backdrop for the scenes and Natalie Portman and Zach Braff have incredible chemistry, IMHO.
Marie Antoinette (2006) - Did a mini-post on this in like, November and my opinion hasn't changed. It's so pretty to look at, even if I didn't speak English I would still be amazed. It gave a lot of insight into MA's life too. Sarah hearts Sofia Coppola.
Chaplin (1992) - Something you may not know, but I am a HUUUUGEEE Chaplin fan, no kidding. He could be considered second to Natalie. Anyhow, this movie taught me about his personal life, which makes for a great movie alone. Also started my Robert Downey Jr infatuation. Hehe...
Annie Hall (1971)- LURVES IT.
Harold & Maude (1971) - Towards the top of my all time favorites list :D Check out my quiz on it.
Natch I love all of the 80s Brat Pack movies, who doesn't? Pretty in Pink, 16 Candles, Breakfast Club, and the king of all of them, FERRIS BUELLER. John Hughes, your my hero.
Other ones I love but don't feel like talking about (ha) are Love Story, The Doors (god LOVE that movie), The Outsiders and I geekishly love Wargames too.
