Here are a few of my favourite films

As the days get shorter and the nights get colder, I find I watch a lot more films while snuggled up under a big blanket. My best friend regularly comes round for a film night in the colder months, where we'll eat junk food and pop some candles on while we watch something good (or so bad it's good!). We would probably do this in the summer months too, but it gets far too hot inside! So here's my list of some of my most favourite things to watch. I hope you enjoy!

The 'Burbs

Such a fantastic '80s film, with Tom Hanks living the surburban life, whilst becoming increasingly convinced that there is something morbid going on with the new neighbours. Full of laughs!

Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring

I first watched this when I was at home from school ill with the flu. A friend lent me the dvd as it had just come out. I had never seen anything like it and was in awe of the whole thing. The story, the visuals, the music. I loved seeing the hobbits in their homes at the beginning, and the scenes in Rivendell were beautiful. I didn't expect to love it so much and I was hooked.

 The Princess Bride

I first watched this when I was very young, and loved the fantasy, the princess, the love story. Then as I got older I loved it for it's humour, its tongue in cheek moments, it's action (and of course still the fantasy, love and Princess Buttercup!).

Fern Gully

Another film that I fell in love with at a young age. I credit this film for giving me my desire to understand about nature, pollution, and trying to protect the world we live in. The songs are fun, and includes great voice acting from Tim Curry and Robin Williams.

Little Women

A heartwarming tale of the March sisters. Based on the book by Louisa May Alcott. I find this a very emotional film, even more so as I am one of four sisters myself. And we also used to put on little plays in our spare time, with my sisters often saying I was very much like Jo. Great film, with a strong cast. 

I have so many more films that I love, but these few are my ultimate favourites!
