My Top 3 - Movies

Everyone loves a good movie and the trouble is, I love SO many different ones, everything from horror and rom-coms to action and sci-fi, I have So, So many favourites - so for me to pick just 3. . . well let's just say this has been the most extremely difficult 'top 3' so far!  In my opinion, a movie can only make it on to a favourites list if, 1 - you know every word, 2 you've watched it dozens of times and 3 if, the second it finishes, you just want to start watching it all over again immediately!  So for me these next 3 films are on this list for that exact reason.

Dirty Dancing, I LOVE this film SO much I have watched it at least 62 times!  No I'm not kidding!  And I know it word for word (remember "I carried a watermelon!" and "Nobody puts Baby in a corner").  It's a total classic, I love the story, the music and seriously how hot is Patrick Swayze in this film!?!  I first saw it back in about 1992 and I was just hooked straight away, I even saw it again a couple of weeks ago.  It's a film that just makes me happy and makes me feel good, I could easily watch it every day and not get bored of it, I did actually do that once for about a week, I know crazy!

Next is a film that I often find not that many people have heard of, The Labyrinth.

I first saw this when I was about 10 or 12 years old something like that, I quickly grew to love it and have done ever since.  I love the characters and the whole mystical feel of the film and the music is brilliant to.  It stars the amazing David Bowie looking very snazzy as the goblin king and wonderful creatures like Hoggle, Sir Didymus and dear little Worm!  Again I know it off by heart and could happily watch it again and again and again.

"Through dangers untold and hardships are numbered, I have fought my way here to the castle, beyond the Goblin city, to take back the child that you have stolen.  For my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom is as great.  You have no power over me!"
I just love that quote :-)

And of course best till last, Twilight :-)  Romance and vampires, what more could you want!

I have to admit, I was a little late on the bandwagon to catch on to the Twilight craze, I never read the books until after I'd seen Eclipse and I didn't even see the first film until about a year after it came out.  But of course there was one huge plus side to that, I didn't have to wait too long for New Moon!  Once I had watch the first film, I just fell in love with it completely, it's such a beautiful romantic story and I absolutely love the way it's all so subtle, it's not like most movies with the characters snogging every two minutes and jumping in to bed straight away!  It's gentle and charming, a proper love story, as Bella says, 'old-school' romance!

I still think I love the first film the most out of all 5 but of course you can't watch that one without following it with all the rest ;-)  I really don't think I can even write how much I love this film, it just wins hands down over everything else.  It is truly enchanting and wonderful and romantic and I honestly think I will love it forever.

So, so beautiful!

So, so good looking lol :-)

  1. My three favourite films are:
    1) "Last Holiday" with Queen Latifah. Not well-known, I know, but its my go-to movie when I needa reminder not to give up.
    2) "The Matrix". It blew my mind when I first saw it, and it still blows my mind today. I love martial artsfilms, I love sci-fi, and the special effects are the best .
    3) "Beaches". The one film guaranteed to make me cry, despite having watched it too many times to count.

  2. Thank you so much for your reply Emsie! Oh my goodness, I honestly nearly put Beaches, I first saw that at my bording school (you know the one) and love it so much, it still makes me cry and yes I'm a huge Matrix fan too, still think the first one is the best :-D

  3. Labyrinth is amaaaazing. Love that film. X

  4. Isn't it! It'll always be one of my favourites :-)
