Even though "Prince Caspian" didn't follow exactly along with C.S. Lewis's book, I loved it! The action, new characters, and great casting were all just wonderful.
#2: "The Lord of the Rings Trilogy"
Even though there are three LOTR movies, I'm looking at them as a whole for this, since that's how Peter Jackson wanted them to be seen. Really, Mr. Jackson did a fantastic job with this trilogy- it captured Tolkien's characters and story so well! The Hobbits were my favorite characters, because even though everyone looked down on them, they showed just how much God uses not warriors, but everyday people.
#3: 1995 "Pride and Prejudice"
I've watched the 2005 version with Keira Knightly, but this version by far is my favorite. It went into greater depth than the other version, and I loved everything about it! Lydia's story was explained more, as was Mr. Darcy's and Georgiana's, and I loved Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth's romance, although Mr. Bingley and Jane Bennet were my favorite characters. And for some reason, Mr. Bingley reminds me of Mr. Tumnus from the Narnia movies and books...
#4: "Anne of Green Gables"
Anne's story is a classic! It is so heartwarming and fun. Megan Follows played her part so perfectly (even though she was a seventeen year-old playing a twelve year-old) that when I think of Anne Shirley, Megan Follows playing that character is what comes to mind.
#5: "The Giver"
I almost liked the movie better than the book- even though Ms. Lowry did a great job on them, I liked how the movie showed more how terrible a world without feelings is. It just seemed to prove that point better. Also, it was great how the movie showed the community's reaction to Jonas's leaving. The memories shown and the point the movie proved was so inspiring. Even my mom, who didn't care for the book, enjoyed the movie!
#6: Disney's " The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe"
To me, this Narnia movie is a classic, and despite the fact that the book and movie were done for kids, I'll never get too old for them.
