I am not going to give you a review of the Top 10 Movie of the Year. This is based on my personal favorites as I, just like you, loves to watch movies. Movies that have made me laugh, cry, shout, jump and made my heart race; movies that made me smile as somehow, it relates to some episodes of my life; movies that touched my life in some way; and movies that taught me a lesson and stuck in my mind and heart. Be it romantic comedy, action, suspense or cartoons; yes, you heard it right because there’s a kid in all of us.
This movie has it all: action, romance, suspense, comedy and a little drama. Bruce Willis at his heroic best (other than being Officer John McClane of Die Hard fame). A bunch of drillers recruited by NASA to drill on a gigantic asteroid about to hit the earth, put a warhead and pray that it divides into 2 and miss the earth. Everytime I see Harry (Willis) say goodbye to his daughter Grace (Tyler), it makes me cry. And yes, they did save the earth and had a happy ending; for Grace and AJ (Affleck), at least.
An action-packed movie starring Nicolas Cage and John Cusack with John Malkovich as the villain (he’s so good at being one). A group of convicts hijack a plane taking them to a maximum security prison. They are joined by Poe (Cage) who partners with Larkin (Cusack) to stop the convicts from taking the plane. Lots of action especially on the last part of the movie. I like the ending wherein Poe gets reunited with his wife and daughter whom he hasn’t met yet.
Maid in Manhattan
I am a romantic at heart so this movie is in my list. This is the story of Marisa Ventura (Jennifer Lopez), a maid in a hotel and was mistaken for a socialite by politician Chris Marshall (Fiennes) who gets intrigued by her and eventually, falls for her. Doing maid services in a hotel didn’t stop her from aspiring of becoming a manager. She showed how tough it is to work hard for her son and be tough when it comes to matters of the heart. It also shows a mother’s love for his son and how she fights for her dream. With scenes that are hilarious and of course, scenes that will make you fall in love all over again.
