1. Black Swan (2010)
Day 1- The best movie you saw during the last year (2011)




I simply loved this movie. Everything about it was fantastic; I don't even know how to elaborate :]

2. The Book of Eli (2010)
Day 02 - The most underrated movie



Maybe it isn't the most underrated movie, but it is one that I loved, and I think it deserves more credit than it was given.
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 3459  Average listal rating (2273 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating
3. Mean Girls (2004)
Day 03 - a movie that makes you really happy





This movie makes me smile for SO many reasons.
A. It reminds me of my freshman year of high school (its been 6 years and I feel old, haha)
B. I can quote most every line
C. This is when I first fell in love with my two favorite actresses: Rachel McAdams & Amanda Seyfried
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 2680  Average listal rating (1702 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating 7.9 
4. The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)
Day 04 - A movie that makes you sad



I know that the ending is a happy one, but who can't help but feeling sad throughout the majority of it?
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 1213  Average listal rating (703 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating 5.8 
5. Valentine's Day (2010)
Day 05 - Favorite love story in a movie



I just love this movie, and I'm normally not a fan of "puzzle-piece" movies. Every story is well put together and connected. Love it.
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 1492  Average listal rating (833 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating 6.4 
6. The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride (1998)
Day 06 - A good sequel



I have seen this movie so, so, so many times. It has been one of my favorites since it came out in '98.
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 1198  Average listal rating (748 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
7. Orphan (2009)
Day 07 - The most surprising plot twist or ending.



The ending just made me say WHAT THE HELL?
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 690  Average listal rating (375 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.1 
8. Rent (2005)
Day 08 - A movie that you’ve seen countless times



Oh how I adore this movie. I have no idea how many times I have seen it or how many more times I will watch it.
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 1528  Average listal rating (974 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating 6.1 
9. Sucker Punch (2011)
Day 09 - A movie with the best soundtrack



I tried to refrain from using a musical like RENT or The Phantom of the Opera, and I love this movie.
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 3280  Average listal rating (2112 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating 8.1 
10. The Wizard of Oz (1939)
Day 10 - Favorite classic movie



I grew up watching this movie with every chance I got.
I was the tin man for halloween one year, and dressed up as Dorthy for the opening of my Aunt's antique shop.
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 882  Average listal rating (475 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating
11. Water for Elephants (2011)
Day 11 - A movie that changed your opinion about something.



I thought that every movie Robert Pattison was in would be awful. But this movie changed my opinion. This is one of my favorite movies now, and he did a wonderful job in it.
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 1245  Average listal rating (782 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
12. What Dreams May Come (1998)
Day 12 - A movie that you hate



I am not a fan of Robin Williams, and I truly hated this movie. I gave it a chance, then I gave it another chance, but still hated it.
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 1737  Average listal rating (1116 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating 6.9 
13. Elf (2003)
Day 13 - a movie that is a guilty pleasure




I don't really consider many of the movies that I enjoy guilty pleasures. But most people would probably consider this an embarassing favorite, but I don't care.
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 893  Average listal rating (610 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating 6.4 
14. Death Race (2008)
Day 14 - a movie that no one would expect you to love



Death, gore, action, cars...nothing about this movie screams "Lydia".
But I absolutely LOVE it
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 1376  Average listal rating (838 ratings) 5.8  IMDB Rating 6.1 
15. Sweet Home Alabama (2002)
Day 15 - A character who you can relate to the most - Melanie Smooter (Reese Witherspoon)



I can see this being me in a few years. Caught in the middle of two men, from a small town, married at a young age. I'm sure that there are better characters that I can relate to, but for now, this is what I chose.


Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 4465  Average listal rating (3012 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 6.8 
16. Jumanji (1995)
Day 16 - A movie that you used to love but now hate



I have just seen it way too many times, and every time that I see it I like it less and less.
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 1728  Average listal rating (1136 ratings) 5.8  IMDB Rating 6.4 
17. Paranormal Activity (2007)
Day 17 - A movie that disappointed you the most



This movie was built up so high that I was expecting to see the most horrifying movie ever made, and it was simply boring and awful.
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 793  Average listal rating (525 ratings) 5.8  IMDB Rating 6.2 
18. Paycheck (2003)
Day 18 - A movie that you wish more people would’ve seen



I really enjoyed this movie, but not many have seen it. And those that have don't seem to rate it very high. But I thought it was great.
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 2181  Average listal rating (1460 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 7.3 
19. The Hunger Games (2012)
Day 19 - Favorite movie based on a book/comic/etc.



I am normally a skeptic when it comes to movies based on books that I love, but this one met my expectations and I think that the movie was as good as the book.
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 4207  Average listal rating (2854 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.9 
20. Iron Man (2008)
Day 20 - Favorite movie from your favorite actor - Robert Downey Jr.



He has recently become one of my favorites, but I have always loved Iron Man

21. The Dark Knight (2008)
Day 21 - Favorite action movie



Who DOESN'T love this movie? There were so many movies to choose from for this day, so I don't know if it's my favorite, but it's up there for sure.

Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 3313  Average listal rating (2269 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.8 
25. The Hangover (2009)
Day 25 - The most hilarious movie you’ve ever seen



I don't care if everybody loves it and it was blown out of porportion, I still LOVED it. I was laughing out loud every 5 minutes, and it takes a lot for a movie to do that.
FAVORITE for SURE

27. In Time (2011)
Day 27 - A movie that you wish you had seen in theaters



There really is no reason WHY I would have liked to seen this in theaters, just that I really like this movie and I like seeing good movies on the big screen.

28. Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Stre... (2007)

So Timm Burton may not be my favorite director, but I don't know who my favorite is, so he will do for now.
Lydia's rating:

People who added this item 2201  Average listal rating (1399 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating 8.2 
29. The Princess Bride (1987)
Day 29 - A movie from your childhood



I could have easily chosen a number of Disney animated flicks, but I chose this one because it is a little different. My cousins and I used to act this movie out all the time.
