I Think I Adore These Movies A Little Too Much



It's time for Top Ten Tuesday and this weeks topic is:

My Favourite Movies!!!

I am obsessed with films, about the same as I am with books. I own 1,000s of DVDs, which is a lot since I haven't really bought any in 2 or 3 years as I watch everything online now. I have so many favourite films that this topic is so hard. And, come on, there is no way I was ever going to just be able to pick 10. So here are just a small collection of some of my favourite films.

These are three movies that I consider my classics, I love them all and feel they are films everyone should see once. I think Fight Club might be the best book to movie adaptation ever, where they actually improved on the source material. Even the author of Fight Club says he thinks the movie is better. Plus it has amazing performances from Edward Norton and Brad Pitt. The Boondock Saints is soooo iconic to me for so many reasons, such a great concept for a movie. V for Vendetta is the movie me and my fiance watch every single 5th of November, it is an amazing film.

People should not be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.


The Lord of the Rings movies are just masterpieces in my opinion. Peter Jackson was a genius when he created these films, I love them so much. I can also watch them over and over again and never get sick of them. I can just sit and binge watch all three and not think about anything else. These films were just soooooooo good. I will admit to being really sad that the Hobbit movies weren't anywhere near as good.

Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.


These are probably my 3 favourite romantic movies,and that is quite sad as they all have really depressing endings! Ooooops. I guess The Notebook isn't depressing, it is a rather sweet ending. The other two are just depressing though! I love Baz Luhrman, he creates some of the most stunning pieces of cinema. I think Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge are his two best films. 


The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.

And here are three of my favourite kids movies, that are totally not just for kids! I adore Anastasia, it has one of the best soundtracks ever. Plus I can still say I have a huge crush on Dimitri, even if he isn't a real person - his sass and sarcasm just speaks to me. Quest for Camelot is hilarious and also has a fantastic soundtrack, I will never get sick of watching that film. The Emperor's New Groove is hilarious from beginning to end, it is probably my favourite Disney movie. 


And some other favourites: 


Can you tell that I LOVE kids films? I am sad that I can't just sit and list every single movie I love, but we would be here all day, Your turn... What movies do you love?!? Do any of mine make your own list?


I am planning to do a proper post soon about my return to the blog, as I have been absent for quite some time. I plan to hold a giveaway, so felt I might as well just get it all sorted now. The giveaway is for one winner to receive up to £40 of books of their choice from Book Depository. It's a giveaway for my return to blogging and to celebrate 15k followers on Instagram.

  4. Everything about animated films is THE BESSSST. I love Disney.๐Ÿ˜ And omg Emperor's New Groove is JUST SO AMAZING. Like Kuzco is my hero and I'm sure that's not worrying to anyone. hehhhheh. And I mean, LOTR is really long and I find it tedious at times..but it really is genius and the detail is AMAZING and it'll always be one of the most inspiring trilogies I've ever seen. :')

  5. Romeo + Juliet came out when I was in high school and I was OBSESSED with it! I can't even count how many times I watched it. Enchanted is such fun! And I definitely agree about your must see movies. I'm not sure Fight Club is really a movie I want to see again but it was so good! Great list!

  6. The Lord of the Rings movies are so good. I've never seen V for Vendetta! I thought Enchanted was a lot of fun too. I like the mash up of animated and live action, and it was a fun story. I need yo see Romeo and Juliet as well.

  7. Aw, I remember loving Anastasia as a kid. I wonder if my VHS tape even works anymore!? ;) Also, Beauty and the Beast is a classic. One that I'm SO excited to see Disney adapt as a live-action film. It promises to be amazing. :)

  14. Ah, I love Quest for Camelot! It's so underrated, the soundtrack and the cast are great :D

  15. I've not even seen most of these movies! Love Mulan and Anastacia - definitely two of my favorite animated movies. I really need to rewatch Beauty & the Beast because the first and only time I saw that movie, I was like eight years old. I loved it then and I know I still would now - I really need to get ahold of it. And, of course, I've seen and loved the LotR movies. And...that's it. Unless you count bits and pieces of The Lion King on TV - and I should watch that movie, too, because what I saw, I liked. I do need to watch a few of these movies - Moulin Rouge and Hocus Pocus specifically. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog earlier!
