My Favourite Films

By 7/17/2015 , , , ,

I have hugely varied and strange taste in movies. It makes picking a film for the evening with Jack impossible; he's the Rocky to my Lord of the Rings. I always thought I had pretty good taste albeit sheltered and quite particular...so I'll let you decide- here are my favourite movies!


    1. Harry Potter film series


I have always had a huge love for Harry Potter. I remember reading the books when I was tiny and being so excited that the films were coming! They always seemed to come out near Christmas for the first few and having a December birthday it was always the treat I wanted- a trip to see the newest film! I've loved being able to grow with the actors and actresses and as the movies matured, the generation of kids watching matured as well. It's my firm favourite, and I managed to get my mum to watch all of them- the next challenge is Jack!

    2. Labyrinth

I can remember watching this film on VHS when I was way down in the single digit years. It wasn't until the DVD age that I was re-introduced to this masterpiece and fell right back in love with it. The style of puppetry and the way the world has been created always fascinated me and I can't pretend I didn't (and do) have a massive thing for Davie Bowie in those leggings! The songs are all crazy catchy and I have several memories of singing them with my younger sister over and over again in the back of the car. Sorry Dad.

    3. Peter Pan

My favourite would have to be the original animated version that Disney produced (although not the poor sequel, and the live action ones aren't bad I suppose...). I find it hard to put into words why I love this film so much- I think it's the magical aspect of a good and proper Disney film, the charm and style that a lot of their later movies have lost. I guess the concept of a place where you can go and not have to grow up and face adult life was appealing to me as a youngster- plus, I've always wanted to fly.

My teenage bedroom wall- can you tell I liked Peter Pan?

    4. The Notebook

Yes- dispel the fantasy magical films, I actually am a romantic at heart! Not only is hunky Ryan Gosling in this film, and not only is there a warm yet tragic backstory sure to bring tears to even the driest eyes in the house- this film has everything a romance needs. Literally everything. Kissing in the rain- making out after an argument, cheesey lines that everyone will repeat even though after watching in ten times it still doesn't make sense 'If you're a bird, I'm a bird' (Why is anyone a bird?!). I did make Jack watch this film with me. I was excited for the twist ending, assuring myself it was going to break him and he'd have a sniffle with me. He guessed it in the first 30 seconds.

This list doesn't even begin to sum up the movies I adore, it's simply a top four to give you a taste of who I am and what I like! I'm sure being a mum I'll never get to choose what film we should all watch once Isla is talking, so I have to enjoy them while I can!

What are some of your favourite films?

  1. Well, now I am just thinking, 'You remind me of the babe. What babe? The babe with the power. What power? The power of voodoo. Who do? You do. What? Remind me of the babe.' I love Peter Pan & Harry Potter, though I like the books best. I love The Princess Bride, Stardust & The Rocky Horror Picture Show. #PoCoLo
