Day 29: A Movie that Changed Your Opinion About Something

Prior to watching The Green Mile I was all for the death sentence, I didn’t see how someone could murder a person and then not have to lose their own life. It may sound daft, because it is just a film, but The Green Mile completely changed my opinion about it. The electric chair scene was enough to change my mind completely. It’s a really tough scene to watch … Continue reading Day 29: A Movie that Changed Your Opinion About Something

Day 28: Movie with the Best Soundtrack

Going for a film whose score was composed by Hans Zimmer seems far too obvious; we all know his soundtracks are some of the best, so I’m going to go for something a little less talked about. I’m not a music person, although I can appreciate a good soundtrack when I hear one, and Hanna stands out as the best that I’ve heard in a film because of the … Continue reading Day 28: Movie with the Best Soundtrack

Day 27: Favourite Classic Movie

I’ve had to bend the rules just a touch and go for a modern classic. Generally the term ‘classic’ in film tends to apply to films before the 70’s when Hollywood was first in full swing but shamefully I’ve not seen many of those. Perhaps I should! Anyway my favourite modern classic film would have to be The Shawshank Redemption. I watched this quite recently and fell in … Continue reading Day 27: Favourite Classic Movie

Day 26: A Movie That is a Guilty Pleasure

Dirty Dancing has been a guilty pleasure since I was small. I’m a sucker for that kind of film and it’s actually a toss up between Dirty Dancing or Mamma Mia! I can’t decide which. But since I’ve seen Dirty Dancing far more times than I have Mamma Mia! I’ll go with that. I say it’s a guilty pleasure because a lot of people around me turn their noses up when I say I … Continue reading Day 26: A Movie That is a Guilty Pleasure

Day 25: A Movie that No one Would Expect you to Love

Million Dollar Crocodile is a Chinese monster movie, interestingly the first monster movie to come from Chinese Mainland. I saw it at Udine Far East Festival, going into the film with the expectation that it would be awful. I’ve never been a monster movie fan, and it’s definitely one that people wouldn’t expect me to love, it actually turned out to be one of my favourites … Continue reading Day 25: A Movie that No one Would Expect you to Love

Day 24: Favourite Documentary

I watched Touching the Void for the first time when I was quite young, I don’t even know why I watched it…it just happened to be on TV. I’ve seen it several times since and it always has the same impact. Something about it scared, thrilled and intrigued me. It’s interesting, moving and pretty shocking. The people involved have an incredible story to tell and it’s really … Continue reading Day 24: Favourite Documentary

Day 23: Your Favourite Character from Any Movie

  Iron Man are some of my favourite films, and Tony Stark is one of the best characters in any films I’ve seen. My other favourite characters are Lisbeth Salander (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Hellboy so it’s difficult to choose just one. I love RDJ anyway as you probably all know by now, and of course Tony Stark is drop dead gorgeous! But aside from that his character is amazing. He’s … Continue reading Day 23: Your Favourite Character from Any Movie

Day 22: The Most Underrated Movie

Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus will always stand out to me as an underrated film. Whether it’s the most underrated film ever is debatable, of course it’s all down to personal opinion. Fur got some pretty awful reviews mainly from people disgruntled that what they watched happened to be a film and not a documentary about Diane Arbus’ real life. It’s a fictional recount of what her life might have … Continue reading Day 22: The Most Underrated Movie
