favorite actor of all time favorite film of all time

9 years gone. Heath Andrew Ledger (4 April 1979 – 22 January 2008)

“I don’t have a technique. I’ve never been a believer in having one set technique on how to act. There are no rules and there is no rulebook. At the end of the day, it all comes down to my instincts. That’s the one thing that guides me through every decision professionally. Socially, also. That’s my technique. Yeah, you read through the script 100 times. I guess I have little characteristics about myself. Sometimes, most often than not, once we start shooting I won’t look at the script at all until we finished shooting. It’s kind of like it’s been imprinted in my head during rehearsals. You just let it go.”

6 Films I Will Always Watch

Thanks @crazyfreckledginger for tagging me ❤

1. Across the Universe

This isn’t a very well known film but it’s one of my favorites. It tells a beautiful story about life in late 60s America from different points of view. It’s a jukebox musical and the soundtrack is all covers of songs by the Beatles by very talented, mostly unknown actors. Many of the characters are named after Beatles songs and represent other famous singers of the time like Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. It’s an inspiring film and I definitely recommend it. 

2. The Lion King

I’m Disney trash on every level and this is my favorite Disney movie of all time. It’s the one Disney movie I always keep coming back to whenever I’m feeling nostalgic and want to have a movie night with my old VHSs. It’s a timeless story with amazing songs and beautiful animation. If you haven’t seen it, watch it! You’ll love it. 

3. Captain America: Civil War 

I’m such a huge Marvel fan and this is by far my favorite out of all my movies in the MCU. It brought a lot of the characters together in an Avengers style story but it wasn’t afraid to have a darker tone and I’m absolutely riveted every time I watch it. 

4. White Nights

Another film that not a lot of people know about. I’m a dancer, so naturally I have a favorite dance movie. White Nights has Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gregory Hines dancing together. What else does this world need? It also gives insight the struggles of an artist under the rule of the Soviet Union in the 80s and how defection by Russians and Americans could affect their life. 

5. The Ghost Writer

I love any movie with Ewan McGregor, and this movie is no exception. I don’t wanna give too much away about it, but it’t an amazing movie about a ghost writer who follows the clues left in the manuscript of the writer before him and gets wrapped up in a political conspiracy. It’s amazingly written, suspenseful, and beautifully shot movie, and it’s directed by Roman Polanski, so it’s definitely worth a watch.

6. Batman vs. Robin

It’s one the movies from DC’s current animated universe (an extremely underrated series of films), and I love it. It’s the second movie in the Son of Batman trilogy, the one that really gave depth to Damian Wayne’s character. These movies are what made me come to love the Batfamily so much and I definitely recommend them. (Warning: the current animated universe movies are not for kids. They have some pretty serious material and they don’t hold back just because they’re not live action.)
