My Top 10 Film Recommendations

I recently posted my top 10 Summer book recommendations, and I really enjoyed putting it together so I thought I'd throw out a list of my favourite films and those I recommend. They're in no particular order and there's definitely a mixture of old and new here...

#1 - High Society. This is a 50s American musical film, so it's definitely not to everyone's taste, but it's such a gorgeous love story and the songs are fab. Also it has such gems in it as Frank Sinatra, Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby and Louis Armstrong.

#2 - The Green Mile. This is actually the film adaptation of the Stephen King novel of the same name, which I had no idea existed until yesterday so I'll definitely be reading it. The film is amazing, though, and definitely an emotional one. Tom Hanks isn't bad either.

#3 - The Heat. I love this film; it's such a brilliantly written comedy and the two main characters, played by Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, bounce off each other amazingly.

#4 - Beauty and the Beast. There had to be at least one Disney Classic thrown in, and this is my all time favourite. The storyline and the songs are beautiful and it's just an all-round fantastic Disney movie.

#5 - Easy A. This is a typical funny chick-flick, and Emma Stone is an amazing actress. Plus it has the song Pocketful of Sunshine in it.

#6 - How I Live Now. This is a post-apocalyptic film, which isn't the type I normally go for. However, I love this film, told from the point of view of a girl who was has come to stay in England with her family for the Summer but ends up separated from those she loves. Heart-wrenching and hard to watch at times but genuinely lovely too.

#7 - Adam. This is an emotionally uplifting about how adults with autism/Aspergers survive in the world alone; both funny and frustrating at times, I adore this film and definitely recommend it.

#8 - 12 Angry Men. Another 50s movie, in black and white and mostly shot in one room - this is a film about the jurors on a murder case, and how they reach their decision which sounds incredibly boring but is actually both funny and thought-provoking.

#9 - The Lucky One. I am absolutely in love with Zac Efron, and this film is one of his best in my opinion. A definite chick-flick, but I just love it.

#10 - Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging. I literally could not leave this out, it's so cheesy and has me cringing every time I watch but I still love it. One of the best British-made films ever.

Hope you've enjoyed this post and enjoy the films if you watch any!
