I’ve been writing about some heavier stuff lately and life has been getting in the way so I decided to go a little more relaxed and do some quick writing about my five favourite movies.
1.The Big Lebowski: This is a movie I didn’t even really like that much the first time I watched it. Then i heard you have to rematch it, so i did. Thats where the love began. Each time I watch it I find more things that i like about it. The characters are amazing, theres so many quotes and it’s just hilarious.
2.Pulp Fiction: Unlike The Big Lebowski, this is a movie I feel in love with at the start. It’s probably the most watchable movie i’ve ever seen. Due to its structure you can come in at any time and just start watching. For it’s length it doesn’t drag and has some of my favourite scenes in any movie ever.
3.Fargo: This one is a movie that I can’t really put my finger on why i like it so much. The characters are charming, the plot is hilarious but maybe it’s the accents and dialogue I like so much.
4.Fellowship of the Rings: LOTR had a huge impact on me as a youngin’, both the movies and the books. They ignited my love for fantasy and put me on the path of writing that I am on today. While the whole trilogy is fantastic, FOTR is my favourite. Most of the people I’ve talked to have said they like TTT or ROTK but FOTR holds a special place in my heart. While it lacks the big set piece battles of the ones that came after, it’s just so damn charming. Watching the fellowship come together and ultimately break up never fails to send shivers down my spine.
5.Super Troopers: Super Troopers is in my opinion, one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen. I’ve watched it at least fifteen times and it never fails to crack me up. Just the opening scene alone is worthy of making the list. It’s ridiculous, its hilarious, it’s just straight up shenanigans! Super Troopers is my go to movie when people ask for a suggestion.
