One of the best parts of October is all of the Halloween movies. Hours and hours of entertainment, being scared, and wanting to be in Hocus Pocus. What could be better? If you’re not planning on going out tomorrow night – I won’t judge, it is a Tuesday – get your share of thrills in with a movie that embodies the Halloween spirit. Enjoy some caramel corn and a cuddly blanket while you celebrate the scariest holiday. Halloween Movies to Die For 1. Rocky Horror Picture Show My
And we’re back! I am going into this weekend feeling energized, excited, and enjoying a really good book. After weeks of feeling too stretched out, I’m looking forward to a weekend of getting back to my roots. Highlights of this week were seeing my parents, a pizza party at work, and possibly finding a new apartment. Lows included a major breakout, sitting in traffic for way too long, and our summer intern at work leaving. But overall, a massively good week! Overall Good: A F
Ever since I was a little girl I have loved films. There’s something about watching an entire story unfold in only 90 minutes that has always entranced me. A world is revealed in a short time, in the most visual art. Cinema is my life. And while I love to watch films in my free time, my taste in films varies by mood. I love to watch plotless films on bad days, dramatic films on weekends, and romantic comedies when I eat. Below I have compiled the 10 films that have continuall
One of the best parts of the holiday season is the movies. There’s something about the wholesome jolly that are Christmas films. And when it gets to December they are all I watch! Since it is Monday and I will likely spend after work watching movies and drinking hot chocolate, I thought I would share my favourite films for the holiday season! The Enthusiast’s Favourite Holiday Films The Holiday One of my ultimate favourites, I love this classic switching lives story involving
As a female in today’s society, I have learned a lot about what it means it be a strong, independent, fearless, compassionate woman from movies. It’s as Audrey Hepburn said. “Everything I learned, I learned from movies.” And it’s true. So much of what goes into making us is what we see on the silver screen. That’s why it’s important that as people we are seeing the movies that teach us to be role models to ourselves and others. Today I’ve compiled a list of movies that featur
It’s Movie Monday again on Everyday Enthusiasm, and this one’s going to prepare you for a special day this week: Date night. My boyfriend is back in town from his summer job, which means I get to have date night again! And instead of fancy dinners or dressing up, my perfect idea for date night is sweats, popcorn, and a movie playing. Yes, I’m one of those people. And that’s why this week’s Movie Monday is centered on movies that I think are perfect for date night, or really a
Who’s ready for Movie Monday? I know I am! Because I love movies I’m always looking for new recommendations that will keep my cinephile brain pleased. And I’m sure there are lots of people who are exactly the same. One of the best parts of film is getting to share it with others! That’s why I thought I’d share with you all some films that I recommend everyone watch. Trust me, you’ll be filling your Netflix at-home queue in no time! Morgan’s Movies, ala Recommendations You’ll
It’s common fact that I love movies and that I especially love sharing movies that I find interesting. I went on a me-date on Saturday and went to see “Men, Women & Children” and it truly was a fascinating experience. I hadn’t seen many of the previews, so I wasn’t anything of the film, but I knew it was about our Internet/texting-dependent lives. But I was excited because of the cast (hello, they put Jennifer Garner and Ansel Elgort in a movie!) and nonetheless took time out
October is one of the best months for films, next to December of course. All these fantastic films about Halloween and horror and it’s just so exciting!

HALLOWEEN TOWN 4. BEETLEJUICE 5. HOCUS POCUS 6. DR. HORRIBLE’S SING-ALONG BLOG 7. GHOSTBUSTERS 8. RETURN TO HALLOWEEN TOWN 9. SCARY MOVIE 10.
I am one of those people under the belief that a movie is a sacred thing. Not sacred as the cow to the Hindus, but it’s still a pretty special thing. So much work and money goes into making a movie, so it’s only fair to watch it with a certain amount of respect. Therefore, if you want to get the best movie experience, or just want to experience a movie like this film buff, here is how you do it. How to Enjoy a Movie the Film Buff Way Have the right crowd. If you are going to
Since the passing of my dog, I’ve tried to find lots of ways to occupy my time. Watching old cartoons, evening my tan, and making the perfect turkey sandwich. I also watched Pirate Radio with commentary, something I’ve never done but enjoyed more than watching the movie normally. As I listened to the commentary on the film, it made me wonder what I would say if I were to watch my life and commentate it like a movie. What key parts would I explain to the audience? Which parts
I am a huge film lover. I watch films like fat kids eat chocolate. And when I was 13, it was no different. Of course, I watched very different films from the Indie/Comedy/Biopic films I like to watch now. I was the girl sitting on the couch watching Disney Channel original movies for 6 hours a day. I rarely remember the films I watched when I was younger, except for when I’m babysitting. I’m fortunate enough to be babysitting children who like to play, yes, but also love to w
I’m always babbling on about movies, but it’s for good reason. Movies can teach lessons, relate to your personal life, and can just perk you up when you are feeling your lowest. And this year, 2012, lots of movies based off of books are coming out. And, well, I want to see them. 1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower. My absolute favorite book and I’m really excited for when it comes out. Expect it to be out in the middle of this year. So excited! 2. The Hunger Games. Based off t
So, as I have made a list of the Top TV Couples you know there has to be a list of the top movie couples now. So, I have compiled a list of the top couples who have created the romance, the story, the beauty of coupleness in their movies. 1. Aurelia and Jamie
Even though the language barrier, Aurelia and Jamie end up having the most romantic relationship in Love Actually. They can communicate by emotions and not just by words, getting to know each other in an intimate way tha
Sorry about the late night SS post, but here it is! This lovely little GIF is from one of my absolute favorite movies, Almost Famous. Directed by Cameron Crowe, it actually tells of Crowe’s experiences touring with multiple famous bands such as Led Zeppelin and The Eagles. Although the film is fictional, it is completely based on Crowe’s experiences. WHAT IS GOING ON IN THIS SCENE?
William’s (the boy) mother is extremely tight-laced and has this whole on-going thing about him
Twilight. You might know the world’s fascination with this vampire series. If not, I will give you a quick description of it. Because of this book, and the rest of the series and the films, teenagers are now wearing vampire fangs and thinking that vampires sparkle. Yes, it is that bad. I remember the first time I read Twilight. My friend had just finished reading it and was obsessed with the series (which was before everyone else was) and was trying to force me to read them.
Today I did one of my favorite things. I went to the cinema. My mother approached me this morning to know if I wanted to go to the cinema with her to go see the new film Crazy, Stupid, Love. Not only was it a cute film, but it entertained me to no end. Oh yeah, and Steve Carell has sex. Lots of it. Crazy, Stupid, Love is about Cal Weaver, who has recently been told that his wife cheated on him and wants a divorce. He is devastated and throughout the film is trying to get over
Pirate Radio: My absolute favorite film ever! It’s filled with raunchy jokes, creative personalities, fantastic music, and some of the best one-liners you will ever hear. I love it with every fiber of my being. It captures everything about British radio in the ‘60s, but with an interesting and fun story line. And nothing is better than fun history! To know more, I wrote a post a while back about the film, so click that to really get the nit and grit of it. Peter Pan: This fil
I’ve been watching quite a few films lately, and between them I have decided the jobs I would like the most. They are as follows: From The September Issue, I would like to have Anna Wintour’s job. She’s the head of everything. She is fashionable and has great taste, and the entire world knows that. She is smart and knows how to make something profitable. I would love to be the editor-in-chief of a magazine. From How to Lose Friends & Alienate People, I would absolutely love t
As I posted a few hours ago, I went to go see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 today. I laughed, I cried, I grabbed for my friend’s hand, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have waited 5 agonizing days to see this film, but the wait was definitely worth the while. I even curled my hair. It was so incredible to see the ending of an amazing era of films and novels. First off, I’d been wondering all year how they were going to really start off the beginning of Part 2. The
