more difficult than you think...

so as a regular film watcher lover i was looking through a friends blog "Cinema & Other Distractions" and came across her top ten. as i seem to be spending most of my time anayling myself and my life for the wedding i thought why not spend another couple of hours looking into my past and deciding what my top 10 films are. i know that the list will be never changing and there are a few very good films I've left off... and i'm sure some i've completly forgotten about! but I though I'd have a stab at it...

it's so difficult to know which ones go in the top ten and which ones in the top 20.. but i think i'm there... this is MY list so most of the films are on the girly, arty, emotional, teen angst side and not the films WE love - even though knocked up did make it.. we watch a lot of these films but this one just had the edge but did decide to keep Transformers and Iron Man off my list (even though I love them!).. all these films are special to me and have somehow inspired or moved me in some unique way.. some of them because of the story and some just for the beautiful cinematography... so if you want a wee little challenge try and decide on your top ten. I'd love to know what everyone else is watching...

so here it is:

Romeo + Juliet (Baz Luhrmann, 1996)
American Beauty (Sam Mendes, 1999)
Me Without You (Sandra Goldbacher, 2001)
Labyrinth (Jim Henson, 1986)
Up (Pete Docter, Bob Peterson 2009) (I love all Pixar… but had to pick just one..)
Girl, Interrupted (James Mangold, 1999)
Knocked Up (Judd Apatow, 2007)
Amelie (Jean-Pierre Jeunet, 2001)
Little Miss Sunshine (Frank Ginsberg, 2006)
The Virgin Suicides (Sofia Coppola, 1999)

  1. That's a great list, I don't think I could even attempt this!

  2. I love Romeo and Juliet. Don't think I could narrow down my list of favourite films, it would be trying to pick a list of favourite books just too hard.

  3. i know.. i've already thought of twenty others that I missed out... main one being Breakfast at Tiffany's... how could I forget! x

  4. I love Romeo & Julier too! I always think its so hard to compile a list of my favourite 10!
