This week I'd like to share some movies that have inspired me lately. This is not all inclusive, as I am a huge movie watcher. Just some of the recent ones.

1. Down with Love – a great nod to the wonderful Doris Day and Rock Hudson romantic comedies. I'm not a huge Renee Zellweger fan, but she does a great job. And, Ewan McGregor is, as always, charming.

2. Marie Antoinette – Such romantic clothes. Love the colors.

3. Pride and Prejudice – I love all renditions, but I have to say that I love the styling of the Keira Knightley version. And the music is absolutely beautiful.

4. Moulin Rouge! – Definitely out there, but such a great movie. Some people aren't a fan, but I enjoy the movie. Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor do a great job and I love the arrangement of modern songs. The sets are so elaborate, and I do love when Nicole Kidman plays a redhead. (REDHEADS ROCK! I am one, so I know.)

5. Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events – A children's story with edginess. Definitely not a Disney movie. While I would say that this movie does not do the books justice, I do like the stylization. I don't particularly care for Jim Carrey's overacting, but that's usually a given with him.

6. The Holiday – For the music. Good storyline, but the music makes me melt.

7. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – Yeah, I watch this movie over and over. I can't help it – I love nearly everything that Tim Burton does, and this is no exception. When it first came out, I was appalled that anyone would try and redo the beloved Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, but this movie is delightful and a little dark at times. And,I love the oompa-loompas even more.

8. August Rush – Another movie with a beautiful soundtrack and sweet storyline.

9. Peter Pan – I love how this version focus more on the transition of child to young adult, which I find to be the them of the original story.

10. Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium – So magical. I love the character of Mr. Magorium – he's so childlike yet wise at the same time. This is a great story about believing. And, Natalie Portman's pixie cut is too cute. Plus, the main music piece is stunning.

BONUS: Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland – I know, I know. It's not even in theaters yet. But it's already inspiring me. I cannot wait to see it.
