I had to go for one with Julia Roberts in, lets face it she totally owned this genre (and no one has ever come close). Pretty Woman is now seen as such a classic chick flick. Such great chemistry between Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. Funny, charming and has a heart this film and will always be one of my favorites.
Possibly one of the most heartbreaking love stories in movie history, yet I think it’s my favorite. Real love doesn’t always end with the happily ever after, to really prove that he loves Isla, Rick must let her go. But remember they will always have Paris.
It never fails to make me cry when he tells her to go at the airport with her husband, as she has no idea that he had no plan on going with her. It really is so tragic, but such a love story!
When Prince Fabious’s bride is kidnapped, he goes on a quest to rescue her… accompanied by his lazy useless brother Thadeous. But this is no normal medieval film, it has a very funny take on those type of films. In fact it makes fun of them and itself in such a good way.
Well this was the first film I saw at the cinema, probably cheating having another animated film in the list but nevermind! I do love this film it really does have a special place in the films I have watched list! It has a love story, is very funny with Robin Williams voicing the Genie!
Quite a lot of posters have now been released for the up and coming (and much talked about) Hangover Part II. Which see’s the guys head to Thailand, and I am sure we can start to imagine all of the trouble they are going to find themselves in!
This one actually works out tougher than I first thought as it means I have to choose between Chicago and The Sound of Music! Both of which are in my all time favorite film lists! So I am going to cheat and pick both of them as my favorite musical. I just cannot choose between My Favorite Things and All That Jazz. They are both my most watched films, as I have seen them probably hundreds of times each. Ok maybe a slight exaggeration, but probably not far off for The Sound of Music having watched it over and over from a very young age.
The power of musicals for me make you happy when you are feeling a bit down. The Sound of Music has always been my feel good film, never-failing to make me smile. Chicago is such a sexy musical with some fantastic songs that you cannot help but to sing along too!
For this I am going for Cape Fear because it is so haunting that it is unreal. De Niro really does creep you out so much throughout the entire film. Making you jump and want to turn it off. He really does manage to get right into your head and scare you like the characters in the film.
Nemo is taken away in the big ocean and his dad Marlin must search the entire ocean to get him back. Meeting a fish called Dory with amnesia along the way. But a father’s love for his son sees him going further than anyone would have ever expected. It’s cute, funny and heartwarming throughout and such a fantastic animated film.
I struggle with this genre of films the most, as not a big fan of horror films. Probably debatable if ‘The Sixth Sense’ is more of a horror or a thriller. But for the sake of the 30 Day Movie Challenge it is going to be a horror! Lets face it we all did find it terrifying on the first viewing. It shakes you deep down as you do not realise the big twist coming at the end. We are all scared for the boy as he sees dead people and cannot do anything about it.
The Dark Knight is such a fantastic film, it really does have pretty much a bit of everything and is definitely one of my favorites. I even went to see it three times at the cinema! Yes it was really that great on the big screen. The return of the Joker in what was Heath Ledger’s final finished role and no-one could have ever expected him to be so sinister and brilliant. The action in this film is constant and at times does not allow you to take a breath. Such an incredible film!
This has been one of my favorites since I first saw it. Such an emotional journey we are taken on with The Ram as he battles back from a heart attack whilst trying to reconcile with his estranged daughter who actually gives him one last chance. But in the end the only thing that he can relate to is being in the ring and wrestling.
I always find picking a favorite comedy film the most difficult choice, as comedy preferences tend to change over the years. Depending on the time they were made and when exactly you watch them. I am going to go British and for an older film, with ‘The Full Monty’ I really do find myself laughing at this film on each viewing.
This is such a tough one as quite a lot of films out there which I didn’t particularly like but to have to have a least favorite film is difficult to choose. I have gone for Twilight as it was so disappointing after reading the book. It makes no sense whatsoever if you were not a fan of the book.
Everyone who has read my blog before will already know the answer to this one . . . yes that’s right Million Dollar Baby. I have loved it since the first viewing when it really broke my heart. Such fantastic performances from the whole cast and such an inspirational story of a woman who is determined to get to where she wants to in a sport.
Found this on Facebook and thought it would be a good idea for blogging!
