Day 5; Top 5 favourite movies... {Blogging Challenge}

Day 5; Top 5 favourite movies...
Ok, if you have been a reader/follower of my blog/s, social media etc. You will know I am a huge movie fan. I have a DVD collection that could revival a video shop - hold on DVD shop, wait... Do they even exist anymore? I only know of 1 DVD rental place left in our town! 
Anyway, I love movies. 
Narrowing it down to my top 5... Gee, that's hard. Really, really hard. But let's try...
1. The Blind Side. 
I love, love, love this film. 
2. Milo and Otis.
What can I say, this movie still blows my mind how they filmed it. I have loved this film since I was a child. I love watching it with LuLu.
3. The Help.
Just brilliant, I really enjoy this story.
4. The Others.
I do love a good thriller & this one is one I've watched for years. 
5. A League of Their Own.
Amazing, brilliant - I just love this movie. I've been watching it since I was a little girl.

Now for some honourable mentions...
Hocus Pocus  - best Halloween movie!
Cinderella - Both the original and the current version are so lovely.
About Time - I really like time travel movies. Age of Adaline is also lovely.
Step Mom - It is such a sad but nice movie, but I really love it.
Steel Magnolias - I do love a good a Dolly Parton movie. 
8 Seconds - A movie we've been watching in my family for years!
Almost Famous - When I lived alone and was 19 I would watch this movie almost every weekend.
Lawless - I really enjoyed this movie and have re-watched it a few times. 
The Vow - Such a sweet movie, I love all those Rachel McAdams movies. 
What To Expect When You're Expecting - I watched this a bit when I was pregnant, it was actually very relatable for me in a handful of the scenarios.

Now I also have a little but growing collection of Christian movies, I really enjoy them. They are good & honest movies with lovely meanings to them.
I thought I would include a photo of my small collection, I have watched all of these and re-watched a few 3 or 4 more times. 
(Also I realise some people don't like "Noah" the movie, I agree that parts of it aren't very true to text or nice... It was a good movie, but not very true to the Biblical version. For entertainment purposes it was ok, but I do agree that some of the "Hollywood additions" took away from what is, a very important Bible story and made it almost, mythical/unbelievable - perhaps?) 
The top favourites for me were...
God's Not Dead.
Mom's Night Out.
Heaven Is For Real.
Facing The Giants.

I also have a fairly decent horror movie collection and a wonderful Christmas movie collection. If you would like to see either of those make sure you let me know!
I hope you enjoyed this list and possibly found some new movies to check out! 
Let me know what your favourite movies are!

  1. I love the vow! I rented Cinderella and it is on my Christmas wish list. I will be deciding on my list and posting it later today. I have over 250 movies and I have too many to just choose 5 so may also need to do a honourable mention.


Thank you for leaving me a comment!
Have a lovely day!
