Blogtober day 9: Favourite movies I never get tired of watching

⚠Warning ⚠ there may be a few romcoms in this list.

  1. The Runaway Bride. A cheesy romcom starring the classic combo of Julia Roberts and Richard Gere, Julia plays a woman who constantly gets engaged but then runs out at the wedding. Journalist Richard Gere decides to investigate…
  2. French Kiss. You were warned. Starring Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline. Kevin does a great job as a stereotypical French con man. I love it because I have family in France and I’ve holidayed there a lot so the scenery and places they visit, along with the romance gives me nostalgia.
  3. Pretty much any Disney animation, I love Tarzan, Beauty and the beast, the Little Mermaid, Frozen, Dumbo, Aladdin to name a few.
  4. The Sound of Music – so much to enjoy, the music, the scenery, the story and the love story.
  5. A Chorus Line – I used to dance along and pretend I was auditioning too. I always got the part after getting over my adversity.
  6. Miracle on 34th Street, the newer one with Richard Attenborough, I watch it every year to restore my faith in Father Christmas.
  7. You’ve got Mail – Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. The Internet makes an early debut in film with a dial up connection – remember that?!
  8. When Harry met Sally, a classic that never gets old.
  9. The Flight of Dragons – it’s an animated film, not so well known but well worth a watch. A modern day man gets transported back in time to help save a world where logic is taking over magic but before he can start his quest his mind gets trapped in the body of a dragon. It’s got it all.
  10. Schindler’s List – I have Jewish heritage on one side (my mother’s, so I’m technically Jewish according to the faith) and I lost a lot of family in the holocaust, thankfully my Granny and Grandpa got out and came to England before the atrocities. It’s such a wonderfully created film and so sad, even more so because it’s true.
  11. Titanic – I always say I’m not going to watch it any more but if it’s on I can’t help myself. I always will it not to sink and poor Leo not to drown but I know it’s going to happen!
  12. Groundhog day never gets old, me and my husband both love this film, Bill Murray at his best, so many great one liners we still quote to each other all the time.
  13. Groundhog day never gets old, me and my husband both love this film, Bill Murray at his best, so many great one liners we still quote to each other all the time.
  14. Mannequin – an early appearance by Kim Cattrell of Sex and the City fame, a time travelling shop mannequin comes to life, but only for the lead male. I watched it in early labour with Phoebe and Daniel (only got to the opening credits with Daniel!), I just love the scene where they do what they like in the department store overnight.
  15. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves – I swooned over Kevin Costner and the fantasy woodland life that was created, with drama, action and a beautiful Maid Marion. I don’t care that he had an American accent! Plus Bryan Adams was my teenage crush and I loved his music.
  16. Dirty Dancing, what a classic. I used to watch this over and over with my friend after school. I longed to be baby.

Thanks for coming down this trip down memory lane with me, they all seem to (mostly) take me back to happy times in my life. What are your favourite films to watch over and over?

    Oh I love these. Completely forgot about Robin Hood (it was Christian Slater for me), oh and Schlindler’s List- definitely. #Blogtober16

      It was a bit if a toss up between the two!

    You’ve got some great movies there, I’m surprised for the love I’m seeing for ‘You’ve Got Mail’ even if it’s only for the dial up tones. I also love Groundhog Day, that’s a great film. I will confess though, I’ve never seen Titanic all the way through! #blogtober16
