Gretchen's Top Five Movie List

I know, it has nothing to do with my paranormal romance book, but I wanted to shaking things up a bit and talk about something other than writing. So by all means, add your top fives and let me know what you think of mine. 

Brotherhood of the Wolf
A funny thing about this movie is when I saw this movie in theaters with my father I had no idea it was a foreign film. It was a surprise when the film started and everyone was speaking French. This movie is loosely based on historical events. Two men are sent by the king to provincial France to investigate animal attack on the local citizens. A warning, there is nudity and violence. The costuming and cinematography are lovely. Not to mention Manny is quite nice to watch.

Practical Magic
Who doesn't love this movie? It is a story of two sisters who happen to be witches with a family curse against 'any man who would dare love an Owens woman'. I like the strong female characters and the dialogue. The aunts are my favorite.

Ghostbusters (Both 1 & 2)
I have a slight obsession with these movies. I used to watch the first one all the time as a young kid and the second was the first movie I ever saw in theaters. I have most, if not all, of both of these movies memorized.  How can you beat lines like, 'Dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!'

The Saint
This 90s movie is based on an old comic book I believe. It is about an orphan that grows up to be a professional thief (played by the yummy Val Kilmer). The story takes follows him through, what he believes, will be his last job. During the job he falls for Elizabeth Shue's character and he finds it harder to complete his job.

Bride & Prejudice
This is basically a Bollywoodesque version of Pride & Prejudice. I love the songs and the interesting twist on the classic story. One of the cool things about this movie is that it has cast, crew, and filmed in India, England, and the USA. 

Gretchen happily lives in Seattle, Washington where she spends her time creating new characters and situations to put them in. She also enjoys cheering on her local sports teams, even though it sometimes seems they are allergic to winning.

She has loved reading and telling stories as far back as she, or anyone else, can remember.  Currently, she loves to read the same genres she writes. She also loves exploring her home state. At the end of her adventures she unwinds by curling up on the couch, knitting while catching up TV shows.
