The Godfather trilogy aired on free to air the other night. Such a fabulous lot of films. Casting, score, story – this trilogy ticks all my boxes.
I love films that unfold slowly and keep me guessing.
I like different movies for different reasons.
Although I’m 36, I’m still unable to pinpoint my favourite movie. I can only narrow it down.
I love Taxi Driver and so does My Man. I love the way that after 15 years of watching it, I still wonder who Travis Bickle might be.
I love Blade Runner because it makes me think about the future.
I love Strictly Ballroom. It’s bogan-ness makes me so incredibly happy. Every time I watch it.
We can all learn from the strong sense of family in The Castle. It’s the vibe.
I love The Breakfast Club. Because each one of us is a brain, and an athlete, and a basket case, a princess, and a criminal.
The Shawshank Redemption sees innocence win, even after a very hard road. There could be no better ending to this story.
The Ten Commandments is a very special movie that always makes me marvel at Christianity.
Full Metal Jacket and Apocalypse Now make me think about the atrocity of war. It makes me think just how strong our soldiers need to be.
Love Actually is just beautiful. Such a beautiful story about different types of love and of course, love conquering all.
Different films take me on a different journeys.
Right now I’m loving a few series as well:
Breaking Bad tops my list, Yo!
Sex and the City is one that I re-watch when I want to laugh or cry, or laugh and cry at the same time.
I loved Winnie Cooper and Kevin Arnold in The Wonder Years. I would love my kids to see this.
I love The Office UK because of David Brent.
And I adore The Office US because of Michael Scott.
The Sopranos makes me think about how the other half live.
I could go on…
What are your faves? What are your must-sees?
