LIFESTYLE / THE FILMS I'LL NEVER STOP LOVIN'

I'm infuriating to everyone I know - sometimes generally - but mainly because I have an absolute love / hate relationship with films and TV shows. I have the attention span of a goldfish (or worse) so either I’ll lose interest and switch over within the first 5 minutes if it's not gripping enough or I’ll be fixated and go back and watch the same film over and over (and over) again.

There ain't no middle ground with me unfortunately. 

Today we’re going to talk about films. And not just any old films, MY favourite films of all time. Even from writing, I know this post is going to be a bad idea because I know all I'll want to do is sit around in my PJs and watch all these films in concession for the whole weekend. Which is totally allowed. right?

I'm all for a wild Friday night out, cocktail or two in hand, boogie-ing the night away until my belly grumbles for cheesy chips... but there's just something so comforting knowing that if we don't fancy that, we can always just go home after a long day and stick on a film that we know will make us really happy. Plus, any excuse for a humongous bowl of popcorn! 

As I said, there are SO many films I’ve watched and never thought about again but there are a handful of films from the past few decades that I’ve deemed 'life-changing' enough to make the below list. The kind of film I’ll happily watch two, or even three, days in a row. The kind of film I will quote from almost daily. The kind of film that if anyone dare even speak during will at the very least receive my most evil death stare.

Anyway, you get my gist. I love them all wholeheartedly. If you haven’t heard of any of the below, first of all, shame on you – where have you been? Second of all, get your ass onto Amazon and purchase them immediately after reading this – you won’t regret it, I promise.

You’ll notice from the list that I have a varied taste in films, dependent on mood, time of month (*ladies, you’ll get me), time of year, company etc.

I mean, I know everyone gets all hyped up about a bloody Oscar but I thought I'd throw my own awards into the mix....

What are YOUR favourites films? I'd love to know!

P.S. On a separate note, if anyone's interested, my absolutely favourite popcorn is the Smooth Peanut & Almond flavour from Propercorn. HEAVENLY.
