My Top 100 Movies (in no particular order)

58/100: Kate & Leopold

Meg Ryan in romantic comedies always makes me happy.  As does Hugh Jackman in….anything.  I think he is brilliant and hilarious in this movie, of course pulling off the swash-buckling hero gentlemen who gets plucked out of time and has to get used to our crazy ways and devices.  Then there is of course Liev Schreiber and his hilarious physical comedy.  I love the way that Leopold makes a lot of good points about how hypocritical our world has become, and of course he is the gentlemen everyone wants to fall in love with them!  Love this movie!

“ Theoretically, if you go to the past in the future, then your future lies in the past. This is a picture of you in the future - in the past.”

Today I watched Kate & Leopold( one of the cutest movies ever), and it left me with these thoughts:
• Hugh Jackman is very attractive
• maybe I need to jump off a bridge and travel back to the 18th century to find true love
•people really are broken roads that lead us to where we need to be
• it only takes one person to believe in a “crazy” idea for you to be successful
•don’t believe in fairy tales or movies like this one that give you false ideas about love.

The last one may be a contradiction, but it’s important to remember.

Liev Schreiber: Stealing the Show

Many moons ago I saw a movie with absolutely preposterous ideas regarding the space time continuum. It made no sense. If you’re a Star Trek fan, you know it’s bollocks a lot of the time there, but this made anything they’ve done look tame. To be frank, did you really think if the guy who invented the elevators disappeared from time the shafts would still exist and everyone would know what they were but the cars would disappear from within the shaft? SERIOUSLY?!

That’s not what I wanted to share with you. I want to share with you the scene that made me absolutely weep. Liev Schreiber is a fantastic actor, and I’ve long admired him, but this was the scene that single-handedly made me fall in love with him, and if you can’t stomach the ridiculousness of the rest of the movie, I don’t blame you, but you shouldn’t miss out on this scene.

Balled. My. Eyes. Out. I believed him, too. Thank you for being a fantastic actor and delivering this incredible scene.
