favorite films.

so i have this problem. one where i want to spend every dollar i own on movies.
going to the movies, renting from redbox, subscribing to netflix, buying dvds...don't even get me started
on the $5 dvd bin at walmart. it may one day cause me to declare bankruptcy but until then i am
going to keep fueling my obsession and enjoy every minute of it.

here are a few of my all-time favorite films. some to make you laugh. some to make you cry. and
some to make you want to quit everything and hitchhike across the country...

+ the breakfast club
+ one flew over the cuckoo's nest
+ into the wild
+ the wedding singer
+ v for vendetta 
+ the life aquatic of steve zissou
+ benny & joon
+ roman holiday
+ the fiddler of the roof
+ pretty woman
+ meet joe black
+ forest gump
+ chitty chitty bang bang
+ django
+ rome, open city
+ 10 things i hate about you
+ fighter
+ moulin rouge
+ willy wonka & the chocolate factory

p.s. you can find a lot more of my movie/tv favorites here if you'd like :)
p.p.s. and what are some of your favorite films??


  1. This is a great list. So many on here are my favorites too! I made a list a while back: But it is so hard to choose!!! There are a bunch I would add to my own. Like Pretty in Pink. I love that movie.

  2. Oh my word, your taste in movies is fantastic! I could watch Moulin Rouge, Benny and Joon, V for Vendetta and so many others you put here once a week and never get tired of them.

    I also love Remember the Titans, That Thing You Do, and the latest Jane Eyre. But I'm just a sucker for period pieces like that.

    You're great.

  3. Roman Holiday! <3 Oh goodness, that one is one of my favorites too :)

  4. well my FAVORITE is elizabethtown, and a new favorite is moonrise kingdom. and fantastic mr fox... I just love them so much.
    But on a different note... can you tell me more about your trip to australia? mostly who you flew with and where from, price of flights.. etc. My husband served his mission there and we want to go back soon!
    p.s. I met you at Vanessa's birthday in boise :)

  5. ahh the breakfast club!! that is such a classic!! i think i need to watch that again soon. thanks for this list :-P

  6. love love love moulin rouge! so fabulous!

  7. There is nothing better than the $5 bin at Wal Mart and they actually have quite a few $5 movies at Target as well. Instead of a date to the movies, my boyfriend and I usually pick up a $5 movie or too and watch those. That way it's cheaper, and you get to keep it!

  8. so so amazing! LOVE xx

  9. I have a lot of favorite movies! I love 500 days of summer.

  10. i prefer tv to movies, but i do rewatch all the harry potter movies on the regular :P

  11. What a great list! I just saw Django last week and am o-b-s-e-s-s-e-d.

    I would also add: Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Devil Wears Prada, Sleepless in Seattle, The Dark Knight, and really any Julia Roberts movie.


  12. Nice blog! Love a lot of films you said, like forrest gump or into the wild!
    You must see perks of being a wallflower, napoleon dynamite and chicago!
    following you!

  13. aw, I love love love Benny & Joon. It's such a sweet, quirky movie and totally underrated.

  14. such great list ! <3 there are so many lovely movies I love too !

  15. such a good list! benny & joon is also one of my favorites! i saw it for the first time a couple months ago, and it was one of those movies where after you watch it you just stare at the tv in awe, and immediately want to watch it again... or is that just me? haha one of my all time favorites is How to Steal a Million. AMAZING!

  16. There is no need to worry about wasting film because you have unlimited space. Take lots of shots to make sure you will get the perfect frame.
