Making a list of favorite of movies is just so hard to do because one, there are so many to choose from and, two, how do you choose? So I thought of making a list of movies that are essentially on repeat on my playlist. I’ve watched these movies more than five times. These are my go-to movies whenever I feel like watching something but not really feeling anything in particular. So let’s start!!!
This is about a girl named Julie Baker and her long-time crush Bryce Loski, bearer of the world’s most dazzling eyes. It’s a coming of age movie that’s told from Julie’s and Bryce’s point of view. If I want to forget my state of being an adult, I watch this and reminisce feeling like a teen.
This is also another of my feel-good movies. It’s about the First Daughter of the United States going off to college, trying to balance her personal and high profile life, and ends up falling in love with an undercover Secret Service agent.
Memorable line: “I loved who I got to be with him.”
Life As We Know It
This is about a man and a woman both left with their best friend’s child who eventually find love in each other. Cute, right? Yep, plus it’s got Josh Duhamel… so I’d say that will speak for itself.
Memorable line: “Running a baby is not like running bakery. They’re a mess, they pee on things, they bite. They’re basically dogs.”
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 1 & 2
I love Harry Potter. I may not be able to claim that I’m the biggest fan but I love Harry Potter. And out of the eight movies, these two are my favorite to watch again and again.
Memorable line: “Always.”
Bridget Jones’ Diary
I’ve heard soooo much about this movie for so many years but I never really bothered to watch it. I don’t know why. But man, when I watched it… I got it. I got why so many people love it. Bridget is hilarious!!! I could totally relate to her clumsiness. Bridget is my inspiration. Hahaha!
Memorable line: “I like you, very much. Just as you are.”
Olympus Has Fallen
This movie focuses on a Secret Service agent named Mike Banning who’s just absolutely awesome. Perhaps a man single-handedly saving the White House from terrorists is a little over the top but what I mostly like to watch on these kinds of movies is patriotism and how much it takes to storm into a burning building instead of running away from it, to use one’s body to protect someone else’s, to be worthy of being called a hero. Included in this, too, is its sequel London Has Fallen.
Memorable line: “Classified? Really? Well right now I believe I have the proverbial need to fuckin’ know.”
Silver Linings Playbook
A love story like no other. I’m a rom com nut and I’ve seen tons of movies about perfect people finding love in this crazy world but we rarely see one about two eff-ed up people finding love despite everything. For days when I feel like I’m too broken to ever find love, I watch this.
Memorable line: “The world will break your heart ten ways to Sunday. That’s guaranteed.”
This is by far my favorite of all the Marvel movies. Now, some people may disagree out there but please don’t judge my choices. Haha!
Memorable line: “There’s only one God, ma’am, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t dress like that.”
A story about a dad whose estranged daughter gets kidnapped for human trafficking. The dad, played by Liam Neeson, goes through hell to bring his daughter back.
Memorable line: “I will find you and I will kill you.”
So there you go. Those are my favorite movies. Just a few of them actually. What are yours? Do we share anything in common?
