Recently there have been an influx of bloggers creating their personal lists of 100 Things They Love About the Movies. I recently contributed some ideas to Anomalous Material to be used in the collaboration of one such list. I don't desire to go all the way and create my own, but I thought I'd quickly post the 10 that came into my mind immediately (these being the ones I ultimately sent to AM). I don't really know why these 10 came to mind first, but its quite an entertaining little list I thought. They are as follows:
1. Carey Mulligan
2. Pixar Animation Studios
3. Director: Paul Thomas Anderson
4. Daniel Day-Lewis' performance in There Will Be Blood
5. The soundtracks from Wes Anderson films
6. The revelation about Kobayashi in The Usual Suspects
7. 'Andy Dufresne, who crawled through a river of shit and come out clean'
8. Amelie Poulain/Audrey Tautou
9. The old Star Wars Trilogy
10. The opening scene from The Social Network
Bonus: Sitting all the way through the credits discussing an ambiguous ending with friends.
