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: MOVIE FREEBIE: Top Ten Favorite Movies

*in no particular order

10. VAMPIRES SUCK--OMG! This movie is friggin hilarious!! It's basically like Scary Movie for the first two Twilight movies! And ohhhh god!! I laughed so hard in this movie! It's just hilarious!!
9. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL--I enjoyed the whole franchise and look forward to the newest installment as well. But I have a special fondness for the first film! It was sooo good!
8. BEETLEJUICE--loved this movie!! It's just old school classic awesomeness! I had mixed feelings over the sequel. Not sure if that's still happening or if it was one that was nixed. I mean...this movie was just great! A little dated, obviously but still a beloved favorite of mine!

7. UNDERWORLD: EVOLUTION--I think the second movie is still one of my most favorites of this franchise! It was just incredible I thought! Lots of action and blood and guts flying everywhere! LOL! And maybe because it's the last time we see Michael. Sob!!
6. VAN HELSING--I LOOOOOVED this movie!! Ironically this is the movie that my friend spoiled the ending for me, unintentionally! He had seen it early, I didn't believe him, so I just said tell me how it opens since I planned on seeing it that weekend. Amidst telling me about it, he let slip the ending. I was sooo mad at him. And of course when watching it, I kept waiting for it to happen and then thought maybe he lied, and then realized he hadn't! Oh the emotions!
5. THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON--I have odd taste in movies, yes! LOL! This was the first classic horror film I ever saw. And I legit laughed my way through it all! Obviously it's waaaaay dated but it just cracked me up. Felt a little bad for the Creature though. He just wanted to find love! Apparently a remake is in the works, again, mixed feelings about that one too!

4. JAWS--yes of course! I grew up watching this. It terrified me yet I still found it entertaining! And this is the very reason why I will NEVER EVER go swimming in the ocean. EVER!!!
3. LABYRINTH--ahhh, David Bowie! The great one! Loooved this movie! Such a huge part of my childhood!
2. TANGLED--one of my most favorite Disney movies ever outside my childhood! Maximus was a large part of that! That horse cracked me up!! He reminded me of our dog, just with his personality and being sooo snarky! And our dog is all white too!

1. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST--because duh! Of course a year from now I might have to also include the remake. Pending that it's as awesome as I am hoping it is!!



  1. Oh my, that teaser is so good! Yep, I really think I should grab A Darkness Absolute, sounds like my cup of tea ;)

    Thanks for sharing, here's my TT!

  2. I wonder who is there...Why doesn't she sense it?

    Beetlejuice, Van Helsing and Beauty and the Beast are some of my all time favorites as well.

    My TT

  3. Beauty and the Beast is on my list too. LOVE that movie and literally sobbed watching the latest trailer! My TTT.

  4. I loved Beetlejuice so much when I was a kid! I think I'm due for watching it again. I almost added Beauty and the Beast too, but I haven't seen it since I was a kid. I need to watch it again!

  5. Love Beauty and the Beast! My daughter just had to watch Tangled the other day but I have only watched that one once. You have a few on your list that I don't think I have even watched. I will have to try to get my hands on them!

  6. There was no way I could pick my favorite movies. Very brave :)
    I went with 10 Daniel Radcliffe movies.

  7. That's a sinister teaser! Love that cover and title. I think I should check out the author.

    My TT from One

  8. Sounds wicked good to me. I love Armstrong. I see you have another love of to take a dip in the ocean? I am not afraid. :-)

  9. Jaws made my list as well. There's just something about it that makes it a classic!

  10. I love Labyrinth. That's the first time I ever heard of David Bowie when I was a little girl. From then on he was always the Goblin King for me.

  11. That's a scary Teaser. I haven't read anything by this author yet.
    My Tuesday post features A MAN CALLED OVE.

  12. That teaser was great! I want to know more now! :)

  16. Yay for Pirates!
    and OMG I love Beetlejuice! It such a fantastic movie, and if it's on tv I always stop what I'm doing to watch it!

  17. Of all of the classic Universal monsters, I feel the sorriest for the Creature from the Black Lagoon... Have you seen all three in the trilogy?
