some of my favourite movies

I thought I'd just do a little post on some of my all-time favourite movies. This is in no way a complete list of my favourites just the first few I could think of. They are in no particular order and I promise not to give away any spoilers in case you haven't seen some of these =)

"Remember, remember the fifth of December.
The gunpowder, treason and plot.
I know of no reason why
the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot"
This is honestly one of the most amazing, beautiful movies I have ever seen in my life. It's a long movie, almost 3 hours I think? But I don't even notice when I watch it.


Angelina Jolie, Winona Ryder, Brittany Murphy, Whoopi Goldberg.

It's about a woman who goes to a psychiatric hospital after attempting suicide. The movie does a great job of illistrating how differently people in psych hospitals were treated back in the 60's. It's a very sad, gripping movie. It is based on writer Susanna Kaysen's 18 month stay at a mental hospital in the 60's when she was just 18.


Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Winona Ryder

An absolute classic by the amazing Tim Burton. This is about two people who die and have to haunt their old house. They suck at haunting so they enlist the help of Beetlejuice


Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz

This is based on the the true story of George Jung, who is basically responsible for introducing coccaine into the USA.

I'm not usually into these kinds of movies but this is amazing. And surprisingly sad.

This has got to be in my top 3 movies. Words cannot even come close to describing how much I love this movie.

It's about Jack Skellington, of Halloween land who feels he needs a change, so he decides to take care of Christmas for Santa Claus. =)

Brad Pitt, Edward Norton

My boyfriend conned me in to watching this once and I could not tear my eyes away. I had to watch it a second time to fully understand it, because it's quite complex(I think it is, anyway). I'm not even going to try to explain this. Just watch it! The end is so amazing and unexpected!


Johnny Depp, Christina Ricci

Another Tim Burton movie. In case you couldn't tell he is my all time favourite director/writer.

This movie surrounds the headless horseman, and it is so, so, SO GOOD. It's creepy and scary and awesome.


Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace

Ohh Liam Neeson makes me melt. So sexy. I absolutely adore this movie. It's the story of a man who goes after his daughter after she has been taken in France. So much action and violence. Liam Neeson plays the role perfectly.

And there you have it, just a few of my favourite movies. Sorry for the bad descriptions, I'm not very good at explaining movies unless I spoil them and I didn't wanna do that.

What are your opinions of my picks? Any you haven't seen?
