ten beautiful movies

I've seen a top ten list for most beautiful movies moving through all the blog lately, so I thought I'd join in. I'm not sure if it is anything official in the ways of blogger tags, or if anyone specifically created it, however, I think it was simply a post created first by Oliva from Meanwhile, in Rivendell. I can't say for certain if this is really my top ten, I had a hard time putting this list together. I suppose when I watch movies, the beauty isn't really always was stays in my mind, but rather the story. So I was trying to think back over my favorite movies and figure out which ones were actually beautiful. Anyways, here is rough list of movies that I find beautiful in one way or another (some titles linked to a trailer), in no particular order:

1. The Forbidden Kingdom
The story is amazing and some of the characters and places are beautiful to see. This is a great fairy tale with such wonderful characters, with a backdrop of beautiful Japan.
2. Mirror Mirror
The costumes in this movie are so creative and bold and fun to look at. So many beautiful colors and patterns! Not to mention that the evil queen captures a very creepy beauty.
3. The Star Wars Prequel Trilogy
The love story of Padme and Anakin is beautiful. I also find it beautiful to watch how environments and other people can shift and change one into something completely unlike how they began in this world. An eerie beautiful.
4. Disney's Enchanted
I just thought this story was beautifully crafted. I love how it has so many classic fairy tale characteristics, and how all the characters find their love in the end. I seriously cried the first few times I watched this movie. I just always thought this movie was truly a perfect retelling of a fairy tale.
5. Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean movies
I love tales on the sea and all that good stuff. I think all the ship scenes are wonderful to look at. I think just about anything with the ocean is beautiful.
6. Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader
This whole movie is just magical to watch. I love how so many things are given life with such power that are generally overlooked. It is a beauty that our current world needs to acknowledge more.
7. Titanic
This movie is beautiful. I love how they created the love story of two people that pulls the audience in and makes them care deeply about a historic event that was so tragic. It is also incredibly beautiful because of the music! I love this soundtrack...
8. Medicine Man
I saw this movie when I was pretty young and have loved in since. I love the message, which is bittersweet, and I love the scenery of the Amazon jungle an people.
9. Chocolat
I love the beauty of this tiny French town and all of its unique people, especially the very beginning.
10. Elizabeth the Golden Age
Queen Elizabeth's strength and power will always be beautiful to me, and Cate Blanchett portrays her perfectly in this movie.
