Day 10 – Favorite classic movie


This is not just a classic movie but a fantastic one too. I love the story between Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.

"We’ll always have Paris"

Day 09 – A movie with the best soundtrack

Scott Pilgrim vs The World

The epic of epic epicness refers to more than just the film, the soundtrack is amazing. Tracks from the likes of Beck, Plumtree and T-Rex, not to mention tracks from Sex Bob-omb, Crash and the Boys and The Clash At Demonhead make it an awesome soundtrack.

However, if the category was best score, the honor would have gone to Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring

Day 08 – A movie that you’ve seen countless times

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

I literally have no idea how many times I have seen the Extended Edition of this film. In my opinion, it is the best of the trilogy. The entire Mines of Moria sequence is amazing

Day 07 – The most surprising plot twist or ending

The Usual Suspects

OK, this is cheating slightly because I was spoiled to the ending of this film. However, I still think it’s an amazing plot twist and demands that you rewatch it time and time again to spot all the little things throughout the film and see if you can figure out what is happening.

Day 06 – Favorite made for TV movie

Stargate: The Ark of Truth

I haven’t seen many made for TV movies but I am a big Stargate fan so I chose this

Day 05 – Favorite love story in a movie

(500) Days of Summer

This might be cheating slightly because, as the tagline says, “This is not a love story. This is a story about love”. But I love the relationship between Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s and Zooey Deschannel’s characters. What I love most about it is not a typical, glossy, Hollywood relationship

Day 04 – A movie that makes you sad

The Green Mile

I always well up at the end of this film

Day 03 – A movie that makes you really happy


An infinitely re-watchable film. Never fails to make me laugh.

Dr. Peter Venkman: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.
Mayor: What do you mean, “biblical”?
Dr Ray Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath of God type stuff.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Exactly.
Dr Ray Stantz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!
Dr. Egon Spengler: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes…
Winston Zeddemore: The dead rising from the grave!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!
Mayor: All right, all right! I get the point!

Day 02 – The most underrated movie

The Prestige

I think people tend to forget about this film. Nolan made it in-between the two Batman films and it always seems to get overlooked when it comes to Nolan’s career. It might not be his best film, but it’s my favourite of his films, narrowly beating out The Dark Knight.

Day 01- The best movie you saw during the last year

In my opinion, this was easily the best film of 2010. There was a few others, like Scott Pilgrim vs The World and Toy Story 3, but this was still the best.
