Now that Halloween is over, it almost time for Christmas! And for me that means being in my pyjamas by about 4pm, getting snuggled into bed and watching a good film. With that in mind I thought I would chat about my favourite films, so grab a cup of tea and settle down for an averagely long post.

I simply cant chose a definite favourite of the Harry Potter films, now I only saw the Harry Potter films for the first time this year, that's not because I didn't want to watch them, but when I was younger I wasn't allowed to watch Harry potter because my parents didn't like the fact it was about witchcraft and wizardry (Long story there, might do a post about it at some point), I've always wanted to watch and read Harry potter so I decided it was time for me to finally view them. After watching the first film I was hooked and had to watch the remaining 7. I now love the films and the books and I don't think I could pick a favourite, but just because you see (In my opinion) the characters growing up and seeing more of how they deal with everything that happens, I will say that Order of the phoenix is my favourite, but I think we can all agree that in deathly hallows where you see snape's memories, it finally gives you the purpose of the character.

The cornetto trilogy which includes Shaun of the dead, Hot fuzz and worlds end are brilliant films and I could watch these over and over and not get bored. I love any film that Simon pegg and Nick frost are in because they work so well together and produce brilliant characters. Now out of the 3 films my all time favourite is Hot fuzz because I love the whole story that this small little town is run by murderous old people (Spoiler alert).

The Grinch who stole Christmas with Jim Carey has to be one of the best Christmas films of all time. I've loved this since I was little and have watched in every Christmas for as long as I can remember. In the topic of Christmas films I also love the Muppet's Christmas carol, I just love the whole film and basically anything with the Muppet's in, I will love to watch.

Sweeney Todd with Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter is incredibly gory but great for music. I actually like gory films and Sweeney Todd is defiantly one of my favourites. To be honest I love all films that have Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter in them because they both work amazingly well together and put everything they have into the characters.

Scream 1, 2, 3 and 4 are great horror films, although I know in the first film you had to establish the sorry line but did it need to be spread across 4 films, I'm sure that it could have been over in at most 3 films. Saying that I still really enjoy watching them all, you know it kills a few hours, if you'll pardon the pun.

Anything Disney is definitely in my favourite films, whether its my child like mind or the catchy songs, I love anything Disney and I'm not even ashamed to say it. I'll tell you a secret shall I, I still cry when Sully has to say goodbye to Boo in monsters inc and I cried when at the end of toy story 3 Andy says goodbye to the toys and when they are about the be burned at the rubbish tip. I know its pathetic but what can I say, Disney make some fantastic stories.

So I hope you all enjoyed my ramblings there, what are your favourite films? Leave a comment below x

Bye for now xxx

  1. Ooo, great film choices! Harry Potter is fantastic. I would definitely love to read why your parents didn't like the idea of witchcraft and wizardry. I'm assuming it was a religious thing? Either way, I respect their opinions about it; but I'm glad you eventually got to see them! ;D

    As for my favorite films.. Hm. Avatar was visually amazing. I'm in love with nearly all of Marvel's superhero films, too.

    Looking forward to more posts from you!
