a list of films

A list of  favorite movies as tagged by the lovely Jamie of Through Two Blue Eyes.

v. Jane Eyre {2011}
"I can see in you the glance of a curious sort of bird through the close-set bars of a cage, a vivid, restless, captive.
Were it but free, it would soar, cloud high."

iv. Thor {2011}
"Look at you. The mighty Thor! With all your strength!
And what good does it do you now? Do you hear me, brother? There's nothing you can do!"

iii. The Princess Bride {1987}
"You truly love each other and so you might have been truly happy. 
Not one couple in a century has that chance, no matter what the story books say. 
And so I think no man in a century will suffer as greatly as you will."

ii. The Phantom of the Opera {2004}
"In his eyes, all the sadness of the world."

i. The Return of the King {2003}
"How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart, you begin to understand, there is no going back? 
There are some things that time cannot mend. Some hurts that go too deep... That have taken hold.”

-- John Green
"You can't visit Hogwarts or Neverland or Middle-earth.  But you can certainly travel to Venice."

"This is a city of shifting light,  of changing skies... A city so beautiful it breaks the heart again and again."
-- Alexander McCall Smith
“The streets of Prague were a fantasia scarcely touched by the twenty-first century—or the twentieth or nineteenth, for that matter. It was a city of alchemists and dreamers."
-- Laini Taylor
