Tuesday Top 10; Movies

I had my friends, Ellie and Helen, over last night for a movie night after recently purchasing Sky Movies for the summer, we managed to watch quite a few good movies and a couple of strange ones so I decided I would share with you my top 10 movies.

1) The Perks of Being a Wallflower; I first watched this film at a friends house before reading the book and even though I really enjoyed it, I found the storyline a bit confusing. However, after reading the novel and understanding the storyline this film is now one of my favourites. It is an extraordinary film which is relatable on so many levels and the casting is absolutley perfect.

2) Footloose; My mum had recommended this film to be for quite a while before I finally decided to watch it, however I couldn't find the original version on Netflix and so decided to watch the 2011 version with Miles Teller(who I love). It is such a feel good film with amazing music and dancing, however I am definitley going to watch the original as I have heard many times it is much better.

3) 10 Things I Hate About You; This film always seems to be on those 'must see teen movies' lists that are floating around on the internet so I decided to give it a go last month. Based on Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew, this film takes place in an Ameican high school and has many of the teen movie cliches, however I really enjoyed it despite how cheesy it may have been.

4) Crazy,Stupid,Love; I really liked this film and it is definitley one of the best romantic comedies I have seen. It follows the story of a husband who is trying to re-discover his manhood with a new friend from the bar after his wife asks for a divorce. It is so funny and the stories are very cleverly linked together, also it stars Ryan Gosling so it's bound to be good!

5) Camp Takota; Staring Youtubers Grace Helbig, Mamrie Hart and Hannah Hart this is possibly the funniest film I have ever watched, I was crying with laughter throughout mainly due to the amazing puns that were made. When I first heard they were making a film I was quite worried about what it would be like however it did not disappoint.

6) The Spectacular Now; I watched this film because it starred two of my favourite actors, Shailene Woodly and Mikes Teller. When I first read the synopsis I was expecting it to be just a typical boy meets girl movie which gives an unrealistic representation of high school however it was the complete opposite. The Spectacular Now is a very mature, honest and realistic coming of age film which makes it so much more relatable and because it is quite unique to see such a true film it makes it a thousand times better.

7) Cinderlla Story; The Hilary Duff Cinderella story has always been one of my favourite movies for as long as I can remember. The modern twist on the tale of Cinderella never fails to disappoint as I am also a fan of the Selena Gomez (Another Cinderella Story) and Lucy Hale (A Cinderella Story: Once Upon a Song) versions aswell.

8) The Huger Games; I'm a huge fan of the Hunger Games book trilogy and the films are just as good, I'm not really an action film person however the story line is so gripping and the casting is perfect. I can not wait for the Mockingjay films to come out
9) High School Musical; My childhood obsession was High School Musical and I still love it now, although it may be cheesy, it is a feel good favourite of mine and I still watch HSM 2 at the beginning of every summer. Every time I watch it, it takes me back to when I was sat in my East High School cheerleader costume with my Mum in my old house watching Disney Channels countdown to the premier of HSM2. I lived in my cheerleader costume and wish I had kept it to pass down to my niece who is now getting into the films herself.
10) The Princess Diaries; I love The Princess Diaries, I remember reading the books when I was younger and it was one of the first DVDs I ever got. They are such fun films which are great to watch with friends or family and everytime I watch it I want to try matress surfing and dart painting!

I have also really enjoyed Divergent and The Fault In Our Stars however I decided to stick to films that are out on DVD but I would definitley recommend watching them!

What's your favourite film?
