Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Favorite Movies!

*in no particular order

Started with a mix but then the movies just took over! So here's 10 fave movies!

 1. JAWS--one of my fave movies ever! Don't ask why, I really have no idea! I've watched it since I was a kid and have always just enjoyed it! Definitely will never set foot in the ocean, never have and never will! This movie was definitely one of Stephen's best I think, being his first major hit. He did some amazing things with it despite all the trouble he had with Bruce! ;)
2. Underworld Quartet--there's really not one I could choose over the other! I have enjoyed them all. Sure the first two were probably the best! But the second two, including the prequel were still pretty awesome! And the last one is where I met my Theo!
3. Brothers Grimm--I loved this one! I loved seeing an imagined origin story for the fairy tales that I have loved since childhood! Plus with Matt and Heath what's not to love?!

4. Frozen--duh!
5. Maleficent--I really liked this one! I thought it was an interesting twist to give Maleficent a different story! And I loved the twist with the different kind of true love's kiss too!
6. Tangled--one word: Maximus! I loved that horse! He truly reminded me of our dog, who's also all white and has a HUGE attitude!

7. Vampires Suck--OMG! I love this movie! It is SO freaking hilarious! If you're not a Twilight fan, then you might appreciate it. That is if you want to see Twilight being act out but made fun of at the same time! Hilarious!
8. The Princess Bride--basically my childhood consisted of rewatching this one, Jaws and Disney movies! I was weird, what can I say?!
9. Van Helsing--one of my fave movies ever! Loved it! And I just saw on Wikipedia that they are going to make another/new one? But Tom Cruise is going to be Van Helsing, not sure how I feel about that.

10. Divergent--it was pretty freaking awesome I thought! But of course, Theo was in it, so there you go!


  1. Well, that tease certainly got me wondering... from whom are they hiding?

    Divergent... yeah, l loved that movie too.

    Thanx for stopping by.

  2. Van Helsing!! Awesome movie. and for the first time that I find someone with my name in a movie. I was sooo happy with it :) Even if she is a bad vamp. Yaaaay!!

  3. Great teaser! I want to read it so badly!! :)

    Great movie choices too! Maleficent was awesome!! Still haven't seen Divergent. >.<

  4. Nice tease- I can so see myself saying that to my mom. Loved your movie list- I thought that Divergent rocked as well.

    My Teaser

  5. I need to see Maleficent!! It looks amazing. And, seriously - I could watch Frozen and Tangled a hundered times. Wait... I have an 8-year-old daughter. I probably already have. :)

  6. Thanks for the tease - I love Marr and I didn't know about this one! :/ I love Tangled, Frozen, and The Princess Bride!! Great movie picks, Jessica!

  7. Omg, you have such awesome picks!! I completely forgot about some of these movies, even though I really like them. Brothers Grimm always made me sad to watch after Heath Ledger died, but it is such a cool movie. And of course, The Princess Bride is a classic. :)

  8. Great picks my dear! I actually recognise these!

    Frozen has to be one of my favourite Disney films. I loved it so much!

    Vampire Sucks was hysterical! I went to go see it at the cinema when it came out! :)

    Thanks for sharing & great list!

  9. Tom Cruise instead of Hugh Jackman! No way.

  10. The Princess Bride. Absolutely!! Frozen and Tangled are on high rotation at my house with the two little girls...good thing I love the movies, too. ;) Great list!

  12. Great Teaser post, that is actually on my TBR list. I love Divergent as well, it is amazing.

  13. Some of these are GREAT movies! I introduced my 19 year old brother to Jaws recently - I couldn't believe he'd never seen it! Maleficent was excellent! And Tangled is my husband's favorite movie, strangely enough. Thanks for visiting my Top Ten!

  14. I watched Brothers Grimm a long time back and I would like to watch it again. Thanks for reminding me.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog, Jessica.

  15. Great teaser! I love Melissa Marr, so I'm sure it's going to be great :) And interesting list; I loved Divergent too! I'm glad to find someone else, so many people were disappointed with it!

  23. Brothers Grimm is such a fun movie. I've seen it a couple of times now and I enjoy it every time. MALEFICENT WAS AMAZING. Tangled <3 I adore Flynn and I also watch Princess Bride every once in a while. There is something magical about that movie.
