Leo….you continue to wow me

Okay, I know so many people dislike Leonardo DiCaprio, but I think he is an excellent actor and does a fantastic job in everything. I think he is able to make you believe he is who he’s acting, and he does it well.
One of the “line items” on my Life Long List is to watch all of his movies, just like Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock. So I thought I would gather them all here and note which I have seen, etc. There are 40 according to Google and I have seen 7 of them as of 03/01/19. I am honestly totally shocked and extremely disappointed in myself at this low number!
  1. Critters 3
  2. Poison Ivy
  3. This Boy’s Life
  4. What’s Eating Gilbert Grape
  5. The Basketball Diaries
  6. The Quick and the Dead
  7. Total Eclipse
  8. Romeo & Juliet
  9. Marvin’s Room
  10. Titanic – my favorite movie of all time, ever. hands down.
  11. The Man in the Iron Mask
  12. Celebrity
  13. The Beach
  14. Don’s Plum
  15. Gangs of New York

  21. The 11th Hour

  23. Revolutionary Road – started, but probably won’t finish
  24. Orphan
  25. Shutter Island – I read the book first and then when I found out that he was the actor, I of course, had to watch it. Great movie!
  26. Hubble
  27. Inception – can you say “excellent writing” holy moly.
  28. Red Riding Hood
  29. J. Edgar
  30. Django Unchained
  31. The Great Gatsby – I love the 20s and I love Leo. This movie was honestly so very good. Tobery Maguire did and excellent job too.

Sandy B…you are so lovely

Sandra Bullock is a wonderful actress! I think she does a great job and I love each movie I’ve seen her in! My boyfriend….does not feel so highly about her. So therefore I will have to watch all of her movies on my own time!
One of the “line items” on my Life Long List is to watch all of her movies. So I thought I would gather them all here and note which I have seen, etc. There are 48 according to Google and I have seen 10 of them as of 03/08/19. I couldn’t believe I’ve only seen 10. Like honestly, I’m really disappointed with myself.

  47. Ocean’s 8 – I was actually very against seeing this because I love the first three with the men so very much. I was afraid it was going to be a lame copy cat, but the cast list was solid and I was really impressed!
  48. Bird Box – I didn’t realize this was an “end of the world” movie, so I was thrilled when I realized that!! It reminded me of Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel, which I completely loved!
