During October I am taking part in #Blogtober18, where I write a blog post everyday for the whole month. Mandi over at Big Family Organised Chaos is hosting a linky each day where she also gives a prompt for us to write about. Today’s prompt is ‘movies you have watched a thousand times’ so I’ll be sharing all of the films that I can remember that I’ve watched over and over again and probably still could.
As a teenager I was obsessed with Jean Claude Van Damme and I would watch his films over and over again. Especially Kickboxer, AWOL and Bloodsport. I was totally addicted to him. I think it was one of my friends who introduced me to one of his films… then I was hooked. I literally went out and bought every single one of his films. My bedroom was like a shrine to him. It’s odd because I’m really not into muscular men at all! I think it was possible desire to be a kick boxer… I wish I had started that when I was younger!
In my late teens I was in love with films like Dirty Dancing, An Officer and a Gentlemen, Ghost and Pretty Woman. I loved anything a bit romantical and adored Richard Gere and Patrick Swayze (who didn’t?).
And then I had kids and that was the start of watching whatever they wanted 😉 when Liam was little he would watch The Jungle Book nearly every day and Bugs was the same with all of the Toy Story films. I don’t really remember Boo being obsessed with any films apart from now she will watch the Harry Potter collection over and over.
Now that the kids are older I have found that I can start enjoying a bit of my own time again and can actually sit down on a Friday evening and watch a film. Films we love to watch together as a couple and can watch over and over again are Shawshank Redemption, Love Actually, The Holiday, It’s a Wonderful Life, Driving Miss Daisy, All the Harry Potter films, Braveheart, The Gladiator, The Green Mile, American Beauty… These are all amazing films that you can just watch again and again.
One of my guilty pleasures is watching the Twilight films. James can’t stand them he thinks they are absolute garbage but I really can’t get enough… I can’t wait to introduce Boo to them 🙂
What about you? What are your favourite films?
