Being the very introverted person that I am, I love to spend my time reading and watching films by myself. * Starts singing don't want to be all by myself, don't want to be all by myself* If you haven't already checked it out, I uploaded a post about ' 5 books I could read over and over again' HERE, ( Cheeky bit of self promo ) So today, I thought it would be a perfect time to share with you my ' 5 films I could watch again and again'
#1 GREAT GATSBY
I haven't read the book ( I desperately want to though) so I can't compare it to the film but the film as a stand alone film is amazing. The first time I watched this in my English lesson I remember being absolutely hooked, so hooked in fact that I stayed in to watch it over break leaving my friend alone outside ( yes I know I'm a bad friend) The acting, the set and the music is so beautifully done, My favourite scene is definitely the house party or when they they have tea inside because it is raining so they make it look like they are outside!
#2 HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHERS STONE
A new favourite of mine, as I only watched it for the first time this summer. Just like the book its probably one of my favourites in the whole series. I love seeing them all as waist high little kids, that wouldn't say boo to a goose. Its so magical to see where it all began. Its such an easy to watch, nothing to difficult to follow film for a lazy Sunday afternoon. My favourite parts are definitely when Draco introduces himself to Harry on the stairs, can you imagine if they shook hands, how the whole series would be so different. I also love their first broomstick/ quidditch lessons.
#3 MONSTERS INC
Its a toss up between this film and Nemo being the first film I saw in the cinema ever! I am a massive fan of Disney pixar, a lot more than just Disney ( you can stop sharpening your pitch forks, I'm sorry) Monsters inc is where my love began. I love the characters,Mike Kozlowski being a personal fave. The reason I chose monsters inc over Nemo, is because Nemo can get a little bit boring if you watched it a lot but monsters inc never gets dull! The plot and the jokes are legendary.
#4 ALICE AND WONDERLAND
Okay, this is going to look like I am contradicting myself because I just said, I wasn't the biggest fan of Disney films, but I do really like Disney films just not as much as Pixar. I watched the original Alice and wonderland a couple of Christmases back, and to be honest I didn't really enjoy it. The main reason why I love this film is because it has Johnny Depp in it ( obviously) and I loved the score. I even based some of my photography coursework around Alice and wonderland because I love it so much,
#5 HOME ALONE
I am the biggest sucker ever for Christmas films, though I have never watched ELF ( I know shock horror) Home alone is my all time favourite Christmas film simply because of the absolute ridiculous, plot line that makes it just brilliant. Though Home alone is a pure example of when film companies shouldn't keep making sequels and prequels, because lets face it Home alone 2,3 and 4 are absolute rubbish.
I hope you enjoyed this quick run down of my top 5 films I could watch again and again.
What are your top 5?
