Random top 10: Fav Disney Animated Movies

Ok so if you know me at all, you know I am a HUGE Disney fan. I go when I can, worked there for a summer on internship (@WDW, not the other one)…watch the movies all the time, quote things you would never recognize (unless you were also a Disney freak), and have lithos and other pics hanging all of my apartment. Yes, I am one of “those” people. Don’t judge lest YOU be judged! I’m just sayin’, you probably have something in your closet too, I’m just more upfront about mine 🙂

Ok, so here we go. Please keep in mind, these are my favs, and probably won’t coordinate with many others. I’m special!

  1. Emperors New Groove – honestly, so many good lines…In fact I usually post this one to my friends facebook pages when it is their birthday!…and really, Kronk and Yzma? Awesome.
  2. Beauty and the Beast – my 13th year is when this came out – I spent it obsessing over this movie and watching and rewatching it on the only VHS player in the house, in my parents room. What’s not to love!
  3. The Aristocats – I love cats, I mean, everyone wants to be a cat…and I’ve always loved this movie. Should not be hard to connect the dots 🙂
  4. Aladdin – The genie. Enough said…my favorite part, that I quote frequently…and no one ever gets…
  5. The Sword and the Stone – I know this is an odd one, but I love this movie. Merlin cracks me up!
  6. Atlantis – For Mole alone I would love this movie, but the plot is interesting as well…although definitely not a big hit in the box office sad to say.
  7. Kung Fu Panda – Jack Black’s delivery of the lines in this movie made it fabulous. Couple that with a great story line, and voila! Perfection. Of course I get that damn song stuck in my head because of this movie, but it’s a trade off that is worth it to me!
  8. How to Train Your Dragon – One of the best recent Disney movies…of course it’s more a Pixar movie, but I’ll take it :).
  9. Mickey’s Christmas Carol – One of three movies I watch consistently every Christmas (others: National Lampoons Christmas Vacation and The Muppet Christmas Carol). Check it out: Part 1, Part 2.
  10. Sleeping Beauty – My favorite of the “classics”…not a huge fan of Bambi or Dumbo, but this and Snow White are pretty good 🙂 I find the songs uplifting (for the most part)..my favorite.

That’s it! What are yours?

Weakness: Anything Jane Austen

When I say anything I really mean it.  I am currently watching a movie called Lost in Austen.  It’s truly fabulous and acts out something I’ve always dreamed – to be able to swap places from my reality with Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice (of course) and to have Mr. Darcy fall madly, deeply in love with me! Sigh.  Obv never going to happen, but a girl can dream – and this movie does a great job of living it the way it would probably  happen to me (minus the really tiny flat in London and lovely accent as well as the messy parts in the middle. It is MY fantasy, after all). For your viewing pleasure – here is chapter 1 🙂

Having loved being lost in Jane Austen for most of my life, I hope that many of you will enjoy as I do!  I promise to write of more…the next JA movie I plan on watching is Persuasion 🙂


Awesome Music from Transformers Movie


So I was frustrated when I could not find the music I was looking for from the movie Transformers….at least, not the music I wanted! That’s right, if you are looking for the score or any of the background music, this is so not the place to find it! Go to Amazon for that stuff….So, here is a list I compiled of the songs I think people are looking for (mostly the one’s playing from Bumblebee’s radio, in order found in the movie):

    “Drive” by The Cars
    “Sexual Healing” by Marvin Gaye
    “I Got You (I Feel Good)” by James Brown
    “Baby Come Back” by Player
    “Before It’s Too Late” by The Google Dolls (on soundtrack)

All of these songs are available on iTunes, or I have linked to an album on Amazon if you would prefer!

If there are any more songs I should add….lemme know! 🙂 I love this movie!!!!
