Saturday at the Movies...

So it's no secret to my family and friends that I am a complete movie fangirl.  I love that movies (to me) are the visual equivalent of books.  There are just so many different and wonderful world's to get lost in. 

Let me know if any of these are on your must see list, and if they aren't, let me know what is.  I'm always interested in finding a hidden treasure, be it book or movie!

The Hunger Games - One more month, only one more month!

 Snow White and the Huntsman - I love the Gothic Feel of this - here's hoping Kristen Stewart doesn't muck it up!   

The Hobbit - Squee!  I'm so excited!  The dwarf song always get me!

  1. Oooh good list.

    #1 for me is Hunger Games!!!! I cannot wait.

    After that I want to see Snow White and the Huntsman, Dark Knight, and the Secret World of Arrietty. I'm also looking forward to Mirror, Mirror and The Lucky One. My oldest and I are planning to go see Titanic on the big screen again (well again for me anyways - the 1st time I saw it I was pregnant with her).

    1. I want to see Mirror Mirror and The Lucky One too! Although, I'm always wary of Nicholas Sparks books/movies…I usually end up bawling my eyes out! Titanic is also a no-no for me, because my eyes can not handle the amount of tears they must produce to survive that movie.

  2. The Hunger Games is definitely on my must-see list. I'd be curious to see the new Batman and Spiderman movie as well. Are you planning to watch all of these?

    1. Yes! If not on the big screen, then definitely through Redbox!

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I definitely be stopping by your blog too!

  4. I am, of course, eager to see Hunger Games as well as the Snow White spin-off and Gatsby. Most of the others I haven't seen previews for though--guess I know whose blog I'll be visiting tomorrow at work. HEE!! Thanks for this.

    I heart movies too!

    1. Glad to be of service! Movies are just like books….so many good ones, and not enough hours in the day.

  5. They're redoing GATSBY????!!!!!???? How did I not know about this? That's only one of my top three favorite books! Holy crow, Batman! And Leo's in it? Um, yeah, I've been in love with him since he played Romeo. *directed by Baz, too*

    Holy Toledo! So glad I read this I have to do some cyber-stalk-- research, yeah, that's right, research. :)

    1. Hahahaha….glad to help in your research ;) I also heart Leo, and loved him Romeo and Juliet! I also heart Baz….Strickly Ballroom, Romeo and Juliet, & Moulin Rouge are some of my favorite!

  6. Oh, and I think I might be interested in seeing The Great Gatsby too.

    By the way, you've been tagged. You can view my blog entry for today to get more details. Looking forward to reading your responses!

    1. Thanks for tagging me! My responses are up!

  7. I am so excited about Snow White and the Huntsman. I thought the trailer was visually stunning and Charlize looks like she is gonna be badass as the evil queen/queen ravenna.

    Also very excited for The Dark Night rises because I am a huge Christian Bale fan and love batman :)

    And, oh my word? Leo is gonna play Nick in The Great Gatsby? *fangirls till the end of time* hahaha. Loving that picture and I love Baz Lurman films. The visuals are always insanely gorgeous in his films.
