I don’t know how many actually goes to movies these days. Well, now after and still during pandemic it has changed anyway. I love to do that at times, but only when the movie I am going to watch is a good one for sure. Otherwise it feels such a waste of a time which I just can’t stand as I am a very productive person.
At home I have a ten minute rule, that’s the time I give for a new movie to see if it feels interesting or not. And for making the decision of starting to watch new movie, the story of it has to be somehow very interesting to me. Here’s a very simple explanation for this: when there was no Netflix or other online streaming services, for few years we went to video rental shop every single night and rented a movie (it started from a first date and just kept going so sweetly). In that time I saw such a bad movies, I wasted my time by watching them because without watching it, it would have felt such a waste of money instead. We had no money to eat in restaurants nor do other fancy things, so our luxury was having a movie night every single night. However, those years taught me how to pic better movies by following the storyline and how to avoid such a bad pickings.
By the way, who else is missing video rental shops in this modern 2020? We had two chains when I was younger; Makuuni and FilmTown. I haven’t seen even one shop anymore, it also feels like old-fashioned candy stores are disappearing.
Now I am sharing my favorite movies of all time with you. My list tells a lot about my humor by following the listed comedies and about my taste what comes to action, thrillers and drama. Movies I have listed are not in order starting from the best ones, but just pretty mixed.
Monster in Law (Jennifer Lopez, Jane Fonda, 2005)
Oh my gosh, when I was a teen I kept watching this over and over again and kept dreaming of my own special marriage one day.
Mr. Bean’s Holiday (Rowan Atkinson, 2007)
Death at a funeral (British version, 2007)
The US version is terrible bad when comparing this one, so keep focus on this British version!
Freaky Friday (Lindsay Lohan, Jamie-Lee Curtis, 2003)
This with alongside Mean Girl’s, 2004 was my most favorite movie when I was a teenager. And that’s the reason why I could still keep watching them over and over again.
Legally Blonde (Reese Witherspoon, 2001)
Amélie (Audrey Tautou, 2001)
This movie gave me so much encourage to be myself when I was a kid, near teenager. I love this movie still so very much!
Spy (Melissa McCarthy, 2015)
I love Melissa McCarthy so much and this is absolutely the best movie she has ever made!
Miss Congeniality and Miss Congeniality 2 (Sandra Bullock, 2000 and 2005)
Sandra Bullock was my favorite actress for a very long time when I was younger. And I still love her. Miss Congeniality part 1 and 2 were the best movies I can still relate a lot. I also love The Proposal from here and Ryan Reynolds.
Midnight in Paris (Owen Wilson, 2011)
I have seen this movie three times near 2011 which is a pretty long time ago, but there is a reason I have seen it more than once. Creating this list made me want to see this movie again.
Wedding Crashers (Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn 2005)
These dudes in a same film, oh Lord, just freaking funny! If you haven’t seen this movie, you must see it! Other amazing movies from Vince Vaughn are absolutely Four Christmases he made with Reese Witherspoon and Couple’s Retreat.
Holiday (Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, 2006)
This is our Christmas movie and the best one I can ever imagine
Hitch (Will Smith, 2005)
My forever first date movie which makes me awww in a big way. Hilarious picking!
Toy Story part 1, 2 and 3 (1995-2010)
I have not seen the fourth one, was it good? I also love other animations like Kung Fu Panda, Coco and so many Disney movies!
Big (Tom Hanks, 1988)
Tom Hanks is amazing. I also love very much for example Forrest Gump, Inferno and DaVinci Code.
Coming to America (Eddie Murphy, 1988)
Daddy’s Home and Daddy’s Home 2 (March Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, 2015 and 2017)
If you want to laugh the way you just can’t stop, let’s watch these. I have seen them both over 10 times and just can’t stop watching them over and over again. The part 2 is probably even better than first one which is rare!
Dinner for Schmucks (Steve Carell, 2010)
Jeez!!!! This movie is insane, in freaking funny way! The best movie I have ever seen from Steve Carrell and I have seen most of his movies.
The Tourist (Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, 2010)
One of the most wonderful romantic movies, exactly what I like!
She’s The Man (Amanda Bynes, Channing Tatum, 2006)
I could keep watching this everyday, such a great movie!
I still probably mostly keep watching Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures from Netflix, it’s not a movie, but a TV show which I just LOVE!
James Bond movies (Daniel Craig, 2006 –)
I am a huge Bond fan, but there is only one real Bond for me and that’s Daniel Craig. When I say I am a huge fan I mean I really am, I once had my size Daniel Craig Bond cardboard standing at my home. Weirdo.
White House Down (Channing Tatum, 2013)
If you ask from me, that’s the best movie Channing Tatum has made so far.
Bad Boys and Bad Boys 2 (Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, 1995 and 2003)
Yeah! I love these so much. The part 3 was poor, not worth to watch.
Lord of War (Nicholas Cage, 2005)
Aladdin (Mena Massoud, 2019)
Wonder Woman (2017)
Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)
Batman: The Dark Knight (Christian Bale, 2008)
Edge of Tomorrow (Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, 2014)
The Bourne Series (Matt Damon, 2002-2007)
The new ones starting form part 4 are very poor and not worth to watch if you ask from me.
This is just freaking hilarious, I love it!
Transporter part 1 and part 2 (Jason Statham, 2002, 2005)
Hacksaw Ridge (2016)
Now doubt this is one of the most beautiful movie I have ever seen.
Mr. And Ms. Smith (Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, 2005)
Yes, that’s romantic!
Hungergame (Jennifer Lawrence, 2012)
That’s the one and only Hungergame I like, other parts are crap.
21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street (Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, 2012 and 2014)
Hilarious! These guys are amazing together.
Who else needs movie snacking, by the way? Picasso and I always do!
Fight Club (Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, 1999)
Pan’s Labyrinth (Guillermo del Toro, 2006)
I do love some other del Toro’s movies. Others very great ones are Crimson Peak (2015) and The Shape of Water (2017). I know there will be new one called Pinocchio in 2021 and I just can’t wait to see it. Instead I can’t stand his stuffs like ‘Strain’ tho.
Gladiator (Russel Crowe, 2000)
The Orphanage (2007)
Someone says this is horror or thriller, but to me this is pure drama. Not everyone understand this movie, but that’s a very, very beautiful one. One of the best movies I have ever seen and will never forget.
Seven pounds (Will Smith, 2008)
I am not crying while watching romantic movies, I am not that kind of person who gets moved by love or happiness, those movies just makes me so happy. But when I am watching movies like this, it’s just crushing me the way whole system becomes like a crying river. This movie is very powerful creation.
Gone Girl (Ben Affleck, 2014)
That’s a smart one, terrible, but very great one!
Hachiko (Richard Gere, 2009)
That’s the movie I can’t watch again. I just can’t.
Million Dollar Baby (Hilary Swank, 2004)
Such a beautiful creation.
Catch me if You can (Leonardo DiCaprio, 2002)
One of the best movies he has ever done alongside with Shutter Island, I have seen almost all movies from Leonardo.
Atonement (Keira Knightley, 2007)
Very beautiful historical story.
The Ghost Writer (Evan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan 2010)
Best one from Evan McGregor alongside with Moulin Rouge (I love Moulin Rouge, but that’s not amazing the way I would put it on my list here)
Remember Me (Robert Pattinson, 2010)
One of the most beautiful movies I can quickly name, the best one so far from Robert Pattinson. Other movies I love from him are Water for Elephants and Twilight.
