Fantasy World

My hubby and I were discussing our favorite movies and mine seem to have a common theme. Besides action movies--you know I love my Statham, Sly and Arnold (don't judge me!)--I came to the realization that I'm drawn to the Fantasy genre. I don't know if that's the exact word I'd use to describe these movies, but that's how IMDB categorizes them and they're the experts.

Anyway, some of my faves tend to have a not-quite-reality- based thing going on. After adding a little twist on reality in the latest story I'm working on, I thought this blog post seemed appropriate. Plus, I'll use any excuse to talk about movies.

"Fantasy" or not, some movies simply delight me to the core. Here are a few examples:

Just writing this makes me want to watch the whole list right now! (Fire up the Blu-ray, honey!)

If you've never seen Penelope, watch it! And if you've already seen it, watch it again. It's a delightful fairytale and James McAvoy is my spirit animal. I don't even know what that means, but you get it--I love him to pieces. He was ah-mazingly brilliant in Rory O'Shea Was Here and Romola Garai was stunning, but I digress.

What are some of your favorite movies? Are they firmly rooted in reality? Or do they involve a little magic, an apocalypse--zombie or otherwise--or some crazy CGI action? Let me know and I'll add them to my list. Like books, you can never have too many movies in your life...
