Top 5 Films




I always get criticized for not having watched any films. As a child we never really used to watch them, hence most of the Disney I have ever seen was at Uni. I mean the first time I ever saw the Lion King was when I got taken to the theater for Christmas 2 years ago. And I didn't watch the film for at least another few months. Yes you read that right, I didn't watch The Lion King until I was in my 20's. Even so, even I have watched enough to make a top 5. Here goes...



1) Moulin Rouge
To be honest, who does't love a bit of Ewan McGregor?! 

2) Hating Alison Ashley
I'm not going to lie, I got into this film because it features my idol in life: Delta Goodrem. It's so easy going and the only film I can watch again and again... and again. I usually watch it when I am feeling really upset / stressed/ sad etc because it calms me down, it's like a baby's comfort blanket to me!

3) Sydney White
Introduced to me by my housemate last year. We watched this all the time, it is just fantastic girly, trashy film. We love any Amanda Bynes film (no, we are not 12, rather a decade older!) 

4) Les Miserables
Musical and visual bliss. I could have the soundtrack on repeat for days. Definitely couldn't catch me singing my versions in the shower...

5) Elf
I know it's a Christmas film, but it still makes my top 5 and is my favourite Christmas film.

So that's mine... What are your favourite films?

  1. I'm really bad at having favourites, but out of the ones you've mentioned I've seen three! I remember watching Elf in the cinema when it just came out... I was really young. I've loved it ever since then, because you know cinemas were magical places and fun to watch things. Moulin Rouge is a love story as always <3 I've only see Les Mis once in the cinema but it was pretty good. Not one I could watch over and over, but pretty good. I didn't know I was going in for an opera when I went in though xD I didn't mind too much.

    I can tell you what I just watched though, and it was Red Riding Hood. Have you seen it? Check out my review here: http://olivia-savannah.blogspot.nl/2014/02/red-riding-hood-film-review.html

    1. Ooh, Red Riding Hood was one of my 'must go see this at the cinema' films. But like most, it never happened! x

  2. I LOVE the randomness of your top five (and that it includes a Christmas film!)
    Marvellous.
    My all time favourite is Life Is Beautiful, it's a cracker! But best feel good film is and will always be Shrek. Not ashamed.

    1. You can't go wrong with Shrek. And the Shrek babies. And the Donkey babies for that matter too! x

  3. I really love Stardust.
    My Mum had been wanting to see Les Miserables for ages, so I got the DVD her last year on her birthday, when I watched it for the first I was like 'what am I watching?' but ended up loving it, she now plays the soundtrack everyday without fail.

    1. I thought the same when I started watching, but the music. Oh the music! x

  4. I went to the cinema twice as a kid--our cinema closed down and the nearest one was a hundred miles away--so I mainly watched old movies on TV. My favourites are still old musicals; it's probably a tie between The Wizard of Oz and Mary Poppins for my all-time favourite!
