One of the items on my 101 Things in 1001 Days is to create a list of My 101 Favourite Movies. I have actually done it… I am almost 100% positive that I have missed out a number of movies that I really, really like but this is as good as it is going to get for now. Also if I listed all of my favourite movies I might have to make a 1001 Movies.
There are a number of reasons why I consider these my favourite movies, story line, special effects, performances etc… sometimes though it is because of the feeling I got when I watched them. They may have sparked my imagination, made me feel good or maybe sad. I suppose what I trying to say is that I cannot justify my choices, I just like them.
Where there is a series of movies that I enjoy I have just included the movie I have watched the most from that series.
As it is such a long list I thought I would split it into five different parts, four of 20 and one of 21 to make it easier to read. I have not categorised the movies or put them in order of preference.
Ever After (1998) – I love this movie so much.
Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade (1989) – I love Sean Connery
The Matrix (1999) – to be honest this is the only movie I actually like in the trilogy.
Casablanca (1942) – Here’s looking at you, kid!
The Dark Knight (2008)
The Shawshank Redemption (1994) – This is a movie I put off watching for ages but it really is an interesting story with great performances. Out of all the movies on this list this is the only one I have only ever watched once, but I would watch it again.
Lord of the Rings – Return of the King (2003)
Jurassic Park (1993) – The original and the best.
It’s a Wonderful Life (1946) – How can anyone not enjoy this movie.
Toy Story 3 (2010) – It broke me……
Beauty and the Beast (1991) – My favourite Disney Animation.
Back to the Future (1985)
The Prestige (2006)
Singing in the Rain (1952)
Some Like it Hot (1959)
The Green Mile (1999) – This is a bit of a strange one because I really enjoy the concept.
Stand By Me (1986)
Hairspray (2007) – I love John Travolta’s performance in this.
Grease (1978) – and in this… nearly 30 years earlier… lol!
My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002) – This was one of the first DVD’s I owned so I watched it over and over again, also with directors commentary, at a time when it was all new.
So this is the end of Part 1… what do you think?
