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)
Too cool for its own good, really.
Rush Hour (1998)
Glorious action comedy and Jackie Chan’s best film.
Moonrise Kingdom (2012)
Wes Anderson’s best film for me: brilliantly quirky, funny and lovely film.
One of Pixar’s very best and brilliant in all departments.
Charming and creepily surreal in equal measure, one of the gems of the 80s.
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)
A magical opening film for the best trilogy of all time.
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)
A timeless great.
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.
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)
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)
One of the perfect films for a teenage geek/romantic.
The Emperor’s New Groove (2000)
The greatest 2D animated and Disney film.
The Shining (1980)
Spooky times to be had here, probably my favourite horror.
Pirates of the Caribbean: the Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
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.
Life of Pi (2012)
Incredible in its story and its visuals.
Monsters Inc. (2001)
An absolute classic and, for me, Pixar’s very best.
The Incredibles (2004)
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.
Get Out (2017)
Harrowing and genuinely brilliant modern horror.
E.T: The Extra Terrestrial (1982)
Don’t know why it took me so long to put this on here.
Toy Story (1995)
I mean, they’re all good.
Rush Hour 2 (2001)
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)
One of the most downright entertaining films out there.
The Spongebob Squarepants Movie (2005)
Bet you didn’t see this coming!
Spirited Away (2003)
One of the most atmospheric, beautifully animated films I’ve seen.
The best James Bond by miles.
Johnny English (2003)
The Iron Giant (1999)
Underappreciated animation masterclass.
The Grinch (2000)
Christmas genuinely wouldn’t be the same without this classic.
Hot Fuzz (2007)
It’s set in Wells, dude! Wells!! Also, it’s a flippin’ great action comedy.
The Big Lebowski (1998)
Such an easy watching and brilliantly made film to just chill out to and enjoy.
School of Rock (2003)
Good ol’ Jack Black.
