Hey everybody! Yes I had a wonderful 10 day break from the blog thanks for asking hah… but really everyone needs a break sometimes! But LOOK! I’m back!! Happy November btw!
Alright so all my life I’ve grown up in a family that enjoys their movie nights… maybe a little too much. Everyone here has their own favourite genres and movies that they want to watch so usually it ends up with us fighting over what to do. So over the years I have watched wayyy to many different types of movies. I also know a lot of you guys are probably movie addicts aswell so I thought I would share my weird knowledge on this stuff.
Anyway if you’re looking for a movie to watch you have definitely come to the right place haha!
Here are 10 movies you MUST watch before you die… in no particular order!
#1 . Ruby Sparks.
ALSO KNOWN AS MY ALL TIME FAVOURITE MOVIE.. well for now anyway… it tends to change.. a lot.
Ruby sparks is about:
“Young author Calvin Weir-Fields (Paul Dano), once a literary darling, who is having trouble composing his next novel. Following a therapist’s advice, Calvin pulls out an old manual typewriter and creates a vivacious, flame-haired woman he dubs Ruby Sparks (Zoe Kazan). Overnight, Ruby leaps from the page into Calvin’s home as a real flesh-and-blood woman. And, what’s more, she’s unaware that she’s actually a fictional character and that her actions and feelings are dictated by whatever Calvin writes.”
I absolutely love everything about this movie. Its such a unique idea and being somewhat of a writer myself I enjoyed the whole concept! This is more of a Romance/Comedy/Fantasy type of movie if you are interested in that!
#2 . The Lake House.
This will forever be one of my favourite movies. I first watched this when I was pretty young maybe 7 or 8 and it has stuck with me.
The Lake House is about:
“A lonely doctor (Sandra Bullock), who once lived in a beautiful lakeside home, falls in love via letters with its latest resident, a frustrated architect (Keanu Reeves). When they discover that they are living two years apart, the pair must unravel the mystery behind their incredible romance.”
This movie is so interesting and yet still kind of gives you the “what the heck is going on” type of feeling.. not in a bad way. Its just so.. DIFFERENT?! This is more of a Romance/Drama/Fantasy type of movie.
#3 . Dear Santa.
Okay this is my favourite christmas movie, not real with the whole “Elf” trend. Been watching this one for years! So quirky and cute!
Dear Santa is about:
“Crystal, a rich party girl, finds a little girl’s letter to Santa asking for a new mother, and she vows to win over the father and daughter before the holidays.”
Just give this movie a chance! 100% you will love it! This is more of a Drama.
#4. The Fundamentals of Caring.
My god one of the funniest movies I have ever watched also it has Selena Gomez in it and you can’t turn down a Selena Gomez movie!
The Fundamentals of Caring is about : “A writer (Paul Rudd) retires after a personal tragedy and becomes a disabled teen’s caregiver. When the two embark on an impromptu road trip, their ability to cope is tested as they start to understand the importance of hope and friendship.”
So funny seeing the two of them banter back and forth! This is more of a Drama/Comedy.
#5. Parent Trap.
Now if you didn’t watch this growing up I’m gonna assume you lived under a rock. Thought for the longest time that Lindsay Lohan actually had a twin… obviously I was dumb.
Parent Trap is about:
“Twins Annie and Hallie (Lindsay Lohan) are strangers until happenstance unites them. The preteen girls’ divorced parents, Nick (Dennis Quaid) and Elizabeth (Natasha Richardson), are living on opposite sides of the Atlantic, each with one child. After meeting at camp, American Hallie and British-raised Annie engineer an identity swap, giving both the chance to spend time with the parent they’ve missed. If the scheme works, it might just make the family whole again.”
Just watch it even if you already have, AHH MEMORIES! This is a Comedy/Romance/Drama/Family film.
Hilarious movie. Thats all I have to say! After watching this even I wanted to go to that college! haha!
Accepted is about:
“After receiving his latest college rejection letter, senior Bartleby Gaines devises a novel way to fool everyone into thinking he is college-bound: Open his own university. Bartleby and his similarly stymied friends take over an abandoned building, create a fake Web site, hire a friend’s uncle to pose as the dean, and — presto — a school is born. However, they do their jobs too well, and soon many other rejects try to gain admittance to the nonexistent South Harmon Institute of Technology.”
This is a Comedy movie.
#7. Back to the future ( THE WHOLE FREAKING TRILOGY!)
This is definitely one of those movies you cannot skip. An ABSOLUTE CLASSIC!
Back to the future is about:
“1980s sci-fi classic, small-town California teen Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is thrown back into the ’50s when an experiment by his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) goes awry. Traveling through time in a modified DeLorean car, Marty encounters young versions of his parents (Crispin Glover, Lea Thompson), and must make sure that they fall in love or he’ll cease to exist. Even more dauntingly, Marty has to return to his own time and save the life of Doc Brown.”
You have to watch all three, they are so amazing. This is a Comedy/Action/Science fiction/Fantasy film.
#8. In your eyes.
MY GOSH THIS IS GREAT.. well all the movies listed so far have been great by wow. I watched this movie with my sister and in the end we were both shocked by how good and engaging this movie was!
In your eyes is about:
“Two seemingly unconnected souls from different corners of the United States make a telepathic bond that allows them to see, hear and feel the other’s experiences, creating a bond that apparently can’t be broken.”
This is a Romance/Fantasy/Comedy.
#9. What If (The F word)
Have watched this movie at least 3 times, definitely a great one.. probably because of Daniel Radcliffe but thats besides the point haha!
What If is about:
“Wallace, who is burned out from a string of failed relationships, forms an instant bond with Chantry, who lives with her longtime boyfriend. Together, they puzzle out what it means if your best friend is also the love of your life.”
This is a Romantic Comedy/ Drama.
#10. The Age of Adeline.
Such a beautiful movie! Blake lively is so great in this one! Had to watch it again!
The Age of Adeline is about:
“Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) has miraculously remained a youthful 29 years of age for nearly eight decades, never allowing herself to get close to anyone lest they discover her secret. However, a chance encounter with a charismatic philanthropist named Ellis Jones (Michiel Huisman) reawakens Adaline’s long-suppressed passion for life and romance. When a weekend with Ellis’ parents threatens to expose the truth, Adaline makes a decision that changes her life forever.”
This is a Romance/Fantasy/Drama.
Hope you have found one you haven’t seen before, or if you’ve seen them all.. YOU ARE FREAKING AMAZING!
Let me know in the comments if you have seen any of these and what you think!?
Have a great weekend!
