10 Films List

Sunday, 7 April 2013


(1)  Delicacy (2011)
I love to watch French films, and absolutely adore Audrey Tautou.  Delicacy is one of those films that will make you cry, as she plays a widow coming to terms with the loss of her fiance.  But it'll also make you laugh as she discovers a new, and very unlikely, man to love.  


(2)  Cosmopolis (2012)
It's rare that I'll switch off a film after only watching half an hour of it, but I couldn't watch this for fear of dying of boredom.  Don't get me wrong, I like intelligent, weird/arty sci-fi's, but Cosmopolis was just too horribly pretentious even for me to endure.  Sorry R-Patz.


(3)  A Monster In Paris (2012)
 Watched this with my niece over Easter.  A really lovely, heartwarming animated film with a super catchy theme song.


(4)  Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (1984)
 Brilliant Japanese animated post-apocalyptic fantasy with an emphasis on the importance of living with respect for nature.  Random fact: one of my tutors actually recommended that I watch this and I ended up referencing from it for an essay on the problems of nuclear waste.


(5)  Skyfall (2012)
I love all the Bond films, but somehow missed out on Skyfall when it was on at the cinema.  I can see what all the fuss was about now!


(6)  Stand By Me (1986)
This was on late at night on Channel 4 a couple of nights ago.  It's still one of my all time favourite coming of age movies and the ending never fails to make me cry.


(7)  Project X (2012)
I'm such a sucker for American teen films like this.  You know the drill, a group of teenage boys throw a house party and everything gets completely out of control.  Project X however really amplifies this tried-and-tested formula by about a hundred!


(8)  Tideland (2005)
No idea why it's taken me so long to watch this as it's been recommended to me so many times.  I love kooky, arty films like this and find them perfect escapism for when you're in the midst of writing too many essays/revision.


(9)  Wild Target (2010)
British comedy thriller starring Emily Blunt, Bill Nighy and Rupert Grint.  Based around a big art theft that goes wrong, with Bill Nighy playing an assassin.


(10)  The Lorax (2012)
An animated kids film about the destruction of the environment in relation to the greed of capitalism?  Kudos Dr. Seuss, kudos!

What was the last film that you watched?  

Any recommendations?

  9. I didn't see Skyfall in the cinema either and really regretted it, I'm sure it looked amazing on the big screen, plus it's the first Bond film I actually understood lol :-)

  11. LOL at Cosmopolis. I also downloaded it (no idea what possessed me to do such a thing), watched the first few minutes and was severely put off by how boring it was :p

  14. I really want to see The Lorax, I love Dr Seuss. I enjoyed Skyfall, too, but I haven't seen any of the others - I'm not really a film person I'm afraid! Wild Target sounds funny, though.
