this blog is detecated to the issues with games and gravity. When I go to my friends house and play minecraft you can chop the middle of the tree without anything falling. I see super meat boy ya i can jump 30 feet. okay this was a short blog entry but i just wanted to point that out.
With the new systems coming out who will win you say first one that comes out and whichever is cheaper. When they come out though they most likely will not have much success I mean the ps3 and Xbox still are coming out with good games why change it? Some people think that it's time to but the bottom line I dont think they have to [well I didn't include the Wii u but they are the one that needs new]. Okay it is shiny,sleek, and new with bug fixes and things but the bug fixes I think are the only thing that would need to be updated I mean the graphic cards make them cost like 600$ Im not buying that I want to go to college instead

So, this is a list of my top 5 favorite movies and my first official blog. For those of you who don't know I'm taking over for my brother when it comes to blogging. There was a list like this earlier about books which I will re post based on my full preferences and why. These are my top 5 favorite movies. (Oh, and most of them are series so there won't be many single movies here.)
If you have any comments/questions please post them under the comment section. Also if you have any other movie suggestions please please let me hear them! I'm dying for some new movies to watch. My favorite are the mid-evil/old England/Roman era so if you know of anything along those lines I would love to know! (Also, gory stuff doesn't bother me so don't worry about that.) If you disagree with my list please tell me your favorites and why. I apologize if I leave something out because this is kind of on a whim, but I think I have a pretty good list worked up and I hope you think so too. And now, without further ado, my top 5 favorite movies.
5. The Princess Bride
One of the greatest things about this movie is that it never gets old. You could watch it again and again and never get tired of the people or jokes. This is perfect for any occasion because it has action, comedy, and romance all tied into one great package. Throughout the story you will follow the main characters, Westley and Buttercup, through great adventures as they battle villains in an attempt to stay together since their love is forbidden because Westley disappeared after his ship was attacked by pirates and Buttercup is supposed to marry the prince. I really recommend it to any person of any age because I can promise you that you will find that you soon grow fond of Westley and Buttercup yourself. This is why The Princess Bride ranks 5 on my list.
4. Pirates of the Caribbean
I found it very hard to choose between the fourth and third spots, but as of now my preferences stand as thus. The first thing that I have to say about Pirates of the Caribbean: It is hilarious! You couldn't find a better person to play the role of the witty Captain (always Captain) Jack Sparrow than Johnny Depp.These movies have great action, including sword fights, sea battles, and gun fights. They also have wonderful romance between Miss Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner (played by Keira Knightly and Orlando Bloom, my favorite actor) which despite all the obstacles in their way (and trust me there are a lot) eventually shines through. One of the best things about these movies is the way you can watch characters look at personal challenges and see how they react to them. There is a fine line between good and evil that is often crossed and while some characters don't care others always try to find their way back to the good side despite how they may originally seem. For these reasons I would rate Pirates of the Caribbean as number 4 on my list.
3. Star Wars
A timeless movie. A quest to defeat evil and save the ones we hold dearest to us. It is hard to get something that compares to the masterpiece that is Star Wars. There are so many incredible turns in the plot, the most famous being accompanied with the line, "Luke, I am your father." I think that the greatest parts of these movies are not just the action, but the emotions. Characters struggle with a constant lust for power and evil. Personally, I believe that the most interesting part of the story follows Anakin Skywalker, better known in his evil state of Darth Vador. I think one of the greatest scenes in the series was in Revenge of the Sith (3rd movie) when Anakin and Obi-Wan were fighting to the death, apprentice turned against teacher, and Obi-Wan knows he must leave Anakin to die. It was truly amazing to me. The plot also differed in the fact that Anakin didn't originally turn to the dark side for himself, it was for his wife, Padme, whom he wasn't even supposed to love. Also, when he found out that she was dead he let out a heartbroken cry that broke my own heart. I absolutely love this series! So for these reasons, I would rank Star Wars as number 3 on my list.
May the force be with you.
2. Harry Potter
Okay, so anyone who knew me would be super surprised that Harry Potter is number two on my list and not one. Honestly, if they made it more like the books I am positive that it would take the fist spot. I believe that if Chris Colombus directed the whole series it might have resembled the absolutely amazing books more, but hey, that's just what I think. Now on to why they are number two. The actual story of Harry Potter is one I feel is unrivaled by any other and as I mentioned in the blog I posted earlier the only thing that comes near it is Lord of the Rings. It is about a boy who has lost so much but is still expected to save the world and sacrifice that which he holds dearest. I will save most of my rant for when I do the book list. Anyways, it is just absolutely amazing story, no matter how much the writers and directors changed it, and I still love it. These are a few of the reasons why I would Harry Potter as number 2 on my list. (I am Sirius when I say that I will post a nice long rant on the book list, and yes, I meant to do the Sirius thing.)
1. Lord of the Rings
As I'm sure many of you have guessed by now my number one pick is Lord of the Rings. On the outside there is fighting and battles and armies and creatures that can entertain anyone. But, when you look closer you find the true greatness of the film. You watch poor Frodo get slowly seduced by the power of the ring while everyone around him tries to resist its pull. Some fail while others succeed though it is a hard fought battle either way. I won't go to far into this one either today since I will, once again, save the real rant for the book list, but one of the greatest things about these films in the emotion in them. On that rare occasion when you get a great story, great actors, and great director you get that one in a million movie that inspires you above all others. I'll be honest, whenever I watch this I'm sobbing uncontrollably for a little over the last half hour (not sure exactly how long because I loose track but I know it is at least that long). In this movie you see the friendship and loyalty between the Fellowship and how they grow to care about one another. The only word I can think of to describe it is beautiful. Truly truly beautiful. For these reasons and more that I will speak of in the book list, the Lord of the Rings series takes the spot as my favorite movies of all time.
Other movies that I was considering putting on this list were: Troy and Anger Management. Also, I am sure that the Hobbit will make its way on to this list with ease when it is realeased. Whether you consider it to be in the Lord of the Rings category since it is the Prelude or not is you decision.
I am Yoocon's sister. I'm going to refer to myself as B. and I am taking over for him in the blogging aspect of this site. Four things you should know about me: I am a die hard fantasy fan, I like to rant, I am always looking for new things to watch and read, and I absolutely abhor twilight (it doesn't even deserve to be capitalized). I don't read anything realistic and I try to avoid historical so please don't suggest them. For movies my favorites are mid-evil/old England/Roman era movies, with a lot of fighting.
I'm absolutely in LOVE with Harry Potter! It was the best thing ever created! The only thing that even comes close to it is Lord of the Rings. I love the deep meaning of how the ring takes over the best of men and how our greed can rule even the strongest of us. Don't assume I'm just some random fan girl. I actually know what I'm talking about and would love to respond to opinions/questions/ideas and I would be happy to post blogs on any topics that you wish to speak of.
I also love writing and ever since I read Harry Potter it has been my dream to be an author and occasonally I might post stories, only if people want it though, I would appreciate reviews on them too for anyone who has time.
I'm happy to take any questions, comments or concerns. I am going to post my first blog on my own (I have already helped with a few other like the book blog and the quote blog) immeadiatly following this.
Hope everyone enjoys by blogs,

"It was, he thought, the difference between being dragged into the arena to face a battle to the death and walking into the arena with your head held high. Some people, perhaps, would say that there was little to choose between the two ways, but Dumbledore knew- and so do I, thought Harry, with a rush of fierce pride, and so did my parents- that there was all the difference in the world." -J.K. Rowling

"Wit beyond measure is a man's greatest treasure." -J.K. Rowling
"It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you , have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well." -J.K. Rowling
"Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?" -J.K. Rowling
"All that is gold does not glitter." -J.R.R. Tolkien

"So, people, let's try and calm down a bit. Things are bad enough without inventing stuff as well. For instance, this new idea that You-Know-Who can kill with a single glance from his eyes. That's a basalisk listeners. One simple test: Check whether the thing that's glaring at you has got legs. If it has, it's safe to look into its eyes, although if it really is You-Know-Who, that's still likely to be the last thing you ever do." -J.K. Rowling
'"You haven't got a letter on yours,' George observed, 'I suppose she thinks you don't forget your name. But we're not stupid – we knowwe're called Gred and Forge." -J.K. Rowling

Ron gave a loud false cough, which sounded oddly like "Lockhart!" -J.K. Rowling

So this year I went to Syracuse for Christmas. We did lots of things there and first of all we got there the day after Christmas so we opened presents there my favorite present was my nurf guns I also got a 3ds case of outer space. After that since my dad had to much work he couldn't come so I TRIED to do face time with him on my new I phone but it failed badly some reason.
On day two me and my cousins my age woke up early and we played video games (we did this every day) and we found a fun game called gun mayhem. Then we went out and played with my nurf guns (I have two) and one of my sisters played with us and how the game worked was one team got the front yard and the other the back and there was a spy for each team witch could be held hostage by the other team if shot and then the other person had the gun and the cool glasses (I think there cool) and if they got shot the game was over.
Day 3 are last day there it snowed and snowed and snowed. The first thing I did was go ice skating I was so bad I fell at least once every lap and it hurt my ankles. Then we played video games and after that WE WENT TO A SYRACUSE GAME)it was so fun we were 7 rows from the top but still we were in the dome (Syracuse's stadium) the game was against Seton hall witch only lost one game but we really beat them it was so fun (I am a mega Syracuse fan). Then we had to leave.the trip back was short tho.
