Nancy: A Life in Movies

2001 – Lord of the Rings:  The Fellowship of the Ring

Sean Bean and Viggo Mortensen, be still my heart.

2002 – The Pianist

That scene where he plays the piano for the Nazi officer just gets me.

2003 – Love, Actually

Perfect romantic comedy.

2004 – Hidalgo

That horse. And Viggo isn’t bad either.

2005 – Walk the Line

He channeled Johnny Cash and when it ended I didn’t want it to be over.

2006 – Night at the Museum

I just loved the miniature Roman soldiers and the cowboys running all over the place.

2007 – Juno

I love the part where the Jennifer Garner character is worshipping Juno’s Belly. Just beautiful.

2008 – Tropic Thunder

It was so vulgar it worked.

2009 – The Hurt Locker

The most intense war movie I ever watched. Yet somehow the scene in the grocery store was the scariest part of all.

2010 – Toy Story 3

It made me cry. Heck, it made my husband cry. The perfect ending for this beautiful story.
