Reuben’s Favourite Movies.

Milo said we should do more of these so here you go, boi. You, as the reader, probably aren’t interested in what my favourite movies are. But who cares? This is my site. Damn right, sucka. But seriously, I would appreciate it if you looked at this lil’ doohickey. I actually did a top ten movies back when this site was a baby in internet terms, but oh well.

The Nice Guys (2016)

The best film of the last couple of years.

Life of Pi (2012)

Incredible in its story and its visuals.

Up (2009)

One of Pixar’s very best and brilliant in all departments.

Rush Hour (1998)

Glorious action comedy and Jackie Chan’s best film.

Super 8 (2011)

One of the best modern sci-fi films and one that hopefully isn’t forgotten.

Chicken Run (2000)

Aardman’s best work.

The Dark Knight (2008)

Ooh, a gif! The Dark Knight is no question the best superhero movie ever made.

The Lord of the Rings: the Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

Way ahead of its time and a masterpiece in many rights. But still not the best one in the trilogy.

Tongan Ninja (2002)

A masterful comedy for the ages and a treasure trove of quotes.

Toy Story 3 (2010)

Yeah, I cried. Not quite my favourite Pixar or my favourite Toy Story but it’s oh so sweet.

The Lord of the Rings: the Two Towers (2002)

Builds upon everything we saw in Fellowship and adds to it extraordinarily with Gollum and all the other hijinks.

Back to the Future (1985)

Not only a timeless classic but a timeless great.

Ratatouille (2007)

Better than Up, but not quite the best Pixar.

The Lord of the Rings: the Return of the King (2003)

The dramatic finale the trilogy deserved, my favourite movie of all time.

Ghostbusters (1984)

Same situation as Back to the Future.

Toy Story 2 (1999)

My personal favourite Toy Story film.

Cool Runnings (1993)

This sure is a plebby choice. And I care?

Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977)

The perfect starting point for what was to come.

Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

What was to come. Not far off being my favourite film.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)

Image result for harry potter and the prisoner of azkaban

For me the best Harry Potter, still keeping the magic and youthfulness of the first two and with some of the darkness of the later sequels.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

Image result for scott pilgrim vs the world

One of the perfect films for a teenage geek/romantic.

The Emperor’s New Groove (2000)

The greatest 2D animated and Disney film.

Pirates of the Caribbean: the Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)

Image result for curse of the black pearl

One of the most flat out entertaining films ever made and re-watchable to the extreme.

Wallace & Gromit: the Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005)

Almost Aardman’s best.

Monsters Inc. (2001)

An absolute classic and, for me, Pixar’s very best.

The Incredibles (2004)

Image result for the incredibles

Man I love Pixar.

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

Man the 80’s were good for films. And man Indiana Jones was good before Short Round.

The Hobbit: the Desolation of Smaug (2013)

Underneath the cover of all of the trilogy’s flaws can be found this beauty.

E.T: The Extra Terrestrial (1982)

Image result for e.t

Don’t know why it took me so long to put this on here.

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

Brilliant throwback to 80’s cinema and Marvel’s best movie.

Toy Story (1995)

I mean, they’re all good.

Rush Hour 2 (2001)

Image result for rush hour 2 bamboo

I’ve spent so long thinking, “Nah, Rush Hour 2 can’t be as good as the first one…” It is.

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

Brutal and brilliant Batman. My favourite action film.

Wayne’s World (1992)

Image result for wayne's world this man has no penis

One of the most downright entertaining films out there.

Bet you didn’t see this coming!

Spirited Away (2003)

One of the most atmospheric, beautifully animated films I’ve seen.

Johnny English (2003)

Stupidly brilliant.

Timeless action comedy and, Jackie Chan, mate.

The Iron Giant (1999)

Underappreciated animation masterclass.

The Grinch (2000)

Christmas genuinely wouldn’t be the same without this classic.

Hot Fuzz (2007)

Image result for hot fuzz

It’s set in Wells, dude! Wells!! Also, it’s a flippin’ great action comedy.

Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

Image result for moonrise kingdom

Wes Anderson’s best film for me: brilliantly quirky, funny and lovely film.

The Big Lebowski (1998)

Image result for the big lebowski

Such an easy watching and brilliantly made film to just chill out to and enjoy.

School of Rock (2003)

Good ol’ Jack Black.

Nacho Libre (2006)

Ooh, more Jack Black.
