As you may know, I am a massive film junkie. Due to this, I obviously have my favourite films I constantly watch, over and over again. I’m here to share my top ten picks so I hope you enjoy it! I’m trying to keep my intros short and sweet this week so that you can focus more on the content at hand. If you prefer my longer, more personal introductions, I can go back to my usual programming if needs be 🙂
- The Princess and the Frog
- Game Night
- El Camino
- Shawshank Redemption
- Birds of Prey
- The Orphan
- Toy Story (all of them!)
I will never shut up about how much I love this movie. It came out 10 years before I was even born, but even though it’s just reached its 25th anniversary, I still find this film iconic and hilarious.
2. The Princess and the Frog
Not only are the songs catchy and really good, this movie is magical in more ways than one. The character’s are iconic and the storyline rings true with a feminist perspective: the harder you work, the more you achive.
3. Game Night
Since this film came out, I’ve watched it every time I’m at home sick. I love all the actors and actresses too and no matter how many times I watch it I always laugh until my cheeks hurt.
4. El Camino
I absolutely love the Breaking Bad franchise, so when I found out that El Camino was coming out I was super excited about it. After finally watching it, I was obsessed. All my favourite character’s are in it and there are some truly heartfelt moments and I can’t help but love it.
I watch this film almost all the time with my brother, meaning I have all these heart-warming memories whenever I watch this movie. I also adore the Greek Chorus – honestly all I need is my life to be commentated by them. And Megara is amazing so bonus points for that boss-ass bitch.
6. The Shawshank Redemption
This is definitely a must-watch-movie. The storyline is so original and well thought out, but also just so fascinating, shining a light on prison abuse, how hard it is to rehabilitate once you’ve left prison, and other social issues which are so important. A timeless classic with amazing twists.
7. Birds of Prey
A brilliant “get-over-that-scumbag” film, a great film about feminism, fighting, fearlessness and showing how amazing you can be on your own. This is the third time talking about this film on my blog alone, so you know I love it!
Yet another one I watched with my brother. A very original concept you have to watch. Also Betelgeuse’s suit us pretty iconic. Of course, it is a little bit confusing at times but the SFX are so cool!
9. The Orphan
My all time favourite horror movie. A psychological thriller which will constantly keep you on the edge of your seats. It’s the definition of expect the unexpected and I’m watching it right now!
10. Toy Story (yes, all of them)
By far one of the greatest, most heart warming/wrenching film franchises in the world. Even though the first two movies came out before I was born, I have watched them all religiously, and I can recite each and every film word for word.
