Random Thursday: Movies I hate to admit I loved

You know this is going to be a good one! There are a few movies that I suppose I should be embarrassed to admit I enjoy.

Around the World in 80 Days (2004)

I know this is kind of a lame Disney kiddie flick, but I love Steve Coogan. And it makes me laugh, so that’s worth something, right?

The Lara Croft movies

These aren’t exactly highbrow entertainment, so it’s a little embarrassing to admit how many times I’ve watched them. But how can you not love Lara? She’s gutsy, fearless and always armed with a quick comeback. Girl power, y’all.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Go on, laugh. I like really over the top action scenes and this movie delivered. The mountain peak ninja sword fight? Totally never happening in real life, but very cool in a movie.

The Time Traveler’s Wife and The Vow

These are probably the two sappiest movies I’ve ever willingly watched. My goodness. In both movies the characters are deeply in love but are torn apart by horrible tragedies, and the amazing amount of love they still have for each other (and how hard they fight to save their relationships) is amazing. Just, uh, just don’t tell anyone I cried at the end.
