5 Films I Could Watch Over and Over again

5 Films I Could Watch Over and Over again

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?

Thanks for reading x

  1. They changed a few things in the Gatsby film from the book but it's mostly a pretty faithful adaption! I personally think that the casting is great, and the soundtrack is soo good!! And I completely agree Home Alone is just fantastic but they should've just left it as a standalone film. This post makes me want to watch all these films all over again!! x

  4. I've never watched The Great Gatsby and it's really hard to think of 5 I could watch over and over as I tend to get bored of seeing the same film many times. But Tangled HAS to on the list and probably Peter Pan (2003)! (My mind has now gone blank of any other films haha)

  11. The harry potter films are my favourites I love them all. I agree also that it's so cute seeing them as little kids in the first one. I also love monsters inc, it was one of my favourite films when I was little.

  12. I love Monsters Inc, once I made a monsters inc reference then my friend like carried on the reference and it was such a magical moment. I've only ever seen The Great Gatsby once but I really want to rewatch it because so much happens, I feel like it's the type of film you need to rewatch because there's so much to take in than just the story line, like you gotta admire the clothes and the music and it's all just so good! I really want to read the book too, I thought I might have been studying it in english this year, but turns out I'm not!x

  13. I have yet to watch The Great Gatsby, another one to add to the 'to watch' list. I'm also a lover of the Harry Potter movies, but overall I have to say my all time favourite movies are Disney Mulan and Aladdin, I've watched them so many times I've lost count!x

  14. Alice in Wonderland is one of my all time favourite movie. It's so whimsical and twisted at the same time. A bit unsettling but something that you want to see through. I love the book too, even though C.S.Lewis was a pedophile.
    Great post! I think you've covered all the best ones. :)
