I didn’t realise this didn’t exist already!
I thought for sure it would already be a thing, but nope!
So, this is basic. What are your favourite films? I’ll limit it to three, but if you want to just pick one I’ll respect you lots!
Personally, I’ll pick the three instead of just one. My favourite live action film of all time is Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It has all the stuff I love in film, down to the martial arts, action, thriller elements and a kickass soundtrack! The villain is amazing, terrifying and threatening but also deep and complex. The hero, similarly, is super complicated and likeable. Just. Mm. Everything about this film is gold.
My favourite animated film of all time is Kiki’s Delivery Service. It’s just a basic Ghibli animated film about a witch who moves out to the country. She starts a flying broom delivery service and it’s incredibly adorable. Ghibli is known for taking pretty basic ideas and just filling them with emotion. I think Kiki’s Delivery Service does this the best personally!
And I think my favourite ‘I love this film’ film, due to nostalgia and just because I love it is probably Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. It has a lot of the stuff I love about Winter Soldier, just falls short in terms of choreography and martial arts and stuff. But it has the terrifying villain with hidden depths, the flawed hero and his brilliant positive change arc, the tense atmosphere and almost thriller-like elements. Of course, the lightsaber duel at the end followed by the most famous quote of all time is amazing too!
So what’s your favourite film? Let’s gush together!
