My Favourite Films Of All Time

I enjoy watching films a lot, especially re watching ones that I love. There's so many that I reach for when I feel like I need something I enjoy.

I have been obsessed with the scream franchise for many years. I think I was about ten or eleven when I watched it for the first time, unknown to my mother (lol). I love a good a slasher / thriller. I wouldn't really class the scream films as horror as such but it's definitely in that 'scary' genre, i mean none of us want some crazy ass in a mask stalking us and murdering our friends and family. Scream will definitely always be a classic, even though the fourth film was only released in 2011, i think they'll always be seen as classics. Wes Craven truly did play a huge role in the film industry and within the horror community and scream will always play a massive part in his legacy.

I don't often watch a lot of comedies however this film is honestly one of my favourite I've ever watched. I love the concept behind this, the whole parents reamarrying and then suddenly gaining a step sibling is something a lot of people can relate to however in this film, i love how they've showed the them as adults trying to adjust to their parents getting re married and their family explanding. Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are hilarious on their own so having them both together works so well.

I don't think this really needs any reasoning behind it to be honest. You all know how amazing the series of films are. I've been obsessed with Harry Potter since the books and even more so when the films came out. It was a huge part of my childhood and always will be part of my life.

I had to watch this in school for English and i fell in love with it as soon as i first watched it. I think it's such a good modernized version of a classic. Romeo & Julie has always been one of my favourite plays and books. DiCaprio of course is amazing in it, as he always is in every film he's in. I'm sure you all know the story of Romeo & Juliet so i won't go into too much detail. But what i will say is if you haven't watched it you definitely should.

I have a love for anything vampire related and with this being an 80's classic of course it had to feature in this post. I think I've rewatched this film about one hundred times. I can't get enough of it and i don't think i'll ever get bored of it. I also found my younger self with a massive crush on Corey Haim.

I grew up watching these films and have been totally obsessed ever since i first ever watched them. I think the off screen relationship between Vin and Paul really helps with their relationship within the film. Don't even get me started on the death of Paul Walker, it broke my heart. Fast and Furious definitely is a franchise which I'll never get bored.

What are some of your favourite films?
