This is a list of ten movies that I can watch again and again. I cannot put them in order as it was bad enough getting my list down to this 10!
Jungle 2 Jungle – This is one of those movies that no matter how many times I see it, I always laugh throughout. It really is funny and a movie that I enjoy watching a lot.
The Goonies – this stars a lot of kids who went on to be big names, and the movie is one I can watch over and over. Yes, the story is a little bit far-fetched, but its written for kids so it was never going to be true to life. The action is cool and the kids make me laugh, what more do you want?
The Jungle Book (2016) – I never saw the original cartoon version in full, but this movie is brilliant. The CGI is actually believable and you would swear that they were real animals.
Jurassic World – the original three films were good (OK number 2 wasn’t that good) but this reboot is definitely as good as the original. I think it has something to do with the young boy (Gray) in it that makes it so good. You feel as vulnerable as he does when they are chased by the dino’s and he makes the story enjoyable.
Evolution – it’s about science/aliens/explosions, what more do you want? This 2001 movie always makes me laugh – watch the ice cream scene and tell me you don’t cry laughing! It is a story about how the military don’t always make the best decisions and screw over the little guys at the same time. You need to watch this.
The Mummy Returns – including Alex alongside the actors from the first movie makes this so much better. The movie is funny and believable and you can almost believe that the story actually happened.
Rare Exports – a great Christmas movie that I watch every year. The story is definitely not your usual tale of Santa, and even though it is not in English it is easy to watch and understand what is going on.
Billy Elliot – a young northern English boy who wants to do ballet sounds like it will be a stereotypical tale of a gay boy who likes dancing. The fact that he isn’t gay makes this movie even better. As its based in the middle of the UK miners’ strike, the challenges he must overcome to do what he loves is even harder. There are funny bits in the movie but I have to admit to crying when I watch this.
The Lost Boys – it took me a long time to get the courage to watch this movie as I am not a fan of scary stuff. I did not expect a story about vampires to be so good but I think that had a lot to do with the Corey Haim being a star of it. He makes the movie along with his pal Corey Feldman who take the fight to the bad guys.
Terminator 2 – this is the best movie of the series. It has comedy as well as good action, along with a good story. The latest one (Genisys) is also good but not in my top ten.
Please note: I would probably pick the same top 10 as Remmy, but I thought I would throw in some new ones 😉
