Recently I was asked my top 5 films and I found it very difficult to list them. Of course I have favourites, but they’re all favourites for very different reasons and it’s hard to narrow them down to a top five.
If I was going to be stranded on a desert island though, and could take five films with me which I could then watch over and over for the rest of my life, these are the five I’d take. They’re all there purely for entertainment purposes, a top five list of the best films I’ve ever seen would look very, very different.
Bridesmaids is one of the funniest girl comedies I’ve seen in a very long time and is yet to be defeated. I laugh out loud every time I see it, even though I’ve seen it about twenty times. It’s a go-to film when in need of a laugh or a pick me up, and it’s a great film to watch with friends. I don’t think I could ever tire of Bridesmaids, although watching it over and over on a desert island for the rest of my life could be a very different story!
2. Sherlock Holmes
Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes films are great entertainment. They’re laugh out loud funny, action packed and brilliantly made. A Game of Shadows is the first film that I’ve ever been to the cinema twice for, they’re just brilliant entertainment and they have it all. Of course Robert Downey Jr’s lead role helps *winky face*.
3. City Slickers
An all time favourite of mine ever since I was very young, City Slickers will never grow old for me. I’ve seen it many times and still haven’t grown tired of it and it’s a film that I know I’d miss if I wasn’t able to just grab it from my DVD shelf whenever I wanted. Classic comedy with all the elements you could hope for in that kind of film, plus an adorable calf called Norman! What more could you want?
4. Iron Man
Always one of my top films and always a go to when in need of some entertainment and a bit of eye candy. One of the better Marvel films, in my humble opinion, and one of the funniest Marvel characters. I’d definitely have to take this one with me to the desert island!
5. Dog Soldiers
Last on my list has to be Dog Soldiers, one of the best British black comedies of all time. Dog Soldiers is one of my favourite werewolf films and is always a good, action packed laugh with a few jumps along the way.
