TTT: Favorite Movies and TV Shows

Favorite Movies and TV Shows
Here's where my other geek banner flies. I love TV and movies. I love any form of storytelling, but after books, these are definitely my favorites. I love the visual aspect and the brilliance that can be fantastic dialogue.

So yeah, sorry. My love for these things cannot be restrained, so these will have to be separated into three different categories. Because of the length of this already, I won't give explanations, just a list of my favorites.

1. The Avengers (basically any Marvel movie surrounding The Avengers, but this one takes the cake because of its brilliant use of an ensemble cast and its perfect dialogue.)

5. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
6. The Amazing Spiderman

  2. Which Hairspray movie though? That is an important detail :) Also, love seeing She's the Man and 27 Dresses on your list!

  3. I agree with so many of your book to movie adaptations. You've picked some great choices.

  4. HOLY SHITE that HIMYM finale was freaking awful! I have never been so let down in my life. At COMPLETE odds with the rest of the season. just EUGH! Sorry, I fell into a rage pit also. I also loved the Amazing Spiderman - their chemistry was off the charts!

  5. I've stepped away from tv for so long that I need some new recommendations. Thanks for sharing these. I'm taking notes today.

    And, since I'm not really in a position to recommend tv or movies, I decided to venture off on my own this week and post about mood-boosting books: Be-Happy Books.

  6. Psych, yes! I'm so glad to see this show and quite a few lists this week. Such a fun show.

As far as book to movie adaptations, we obviously share Harry Potter,LotR and the Hunger Games films. And then in t.v. shows, we share Doctor Who (♥!), Sherlock (♥),Avatar: The Last Airbender, Supernatural, Merlin...and we used to share HIMYM but that finale was so terrible it pretty much RUINED the entire series for me. Like I can't even. UGH *calms self* Anyways, we share a lot of same shows :D awesome picks ^^
