Five Film Recommendations

20 July 2017

I don't know about you, but when I'm on the hunt for new films and shows to watch, I'll always ask others what they'd recommend. And so, I thought it might be a good idea for me to tell you some of my own film recommendations. I'd say that I typically go for dramas, rom-coms and the occasional dystopian film, so if you're into those kinds of things, then this list will probably benefit you the most. Even so, if your into slightly different genres, then this list might encourage you to venture down other routes.

My first film has to be Passengers. I wasn't entirely sure how I would feel about this film,  since I don;'t usually go for that kind of film, but it looked good enough for me to give it as go. And, after having seen it, I'd seriously recommend it! To give you a little idea, it is about the starship Avalon transporting many passengers to the planet, Homestead II, a journey that takes 120 years. But the ship crashes into an asteroid, not long into the journey, awakening passenger Jim. I don't want to go=ive too much away, but I really did enjoy the film.

The next film I'd recommend is Bridget Jones's Baby. This is one of those feel-good, absolutely hilarious films that I literally did not get bored of at any point. In all honestly, I haven't actually watched the first two, but I understand the storyline, so I feel that if that's the case with you, it doesn't really matter. I think it helps that this film is set quite a few years after the previous.

And then we go onto The Fault In Our Stars. Need I say anymore? I think that in 2014, this was the film that everyone was raving about and I totally get why. I've seen the film three times in total and cried at every single one of them, because the impact really doesn't fade the more you watch it.

I'm pretty sure that the majority of people have seen Mamma Mia at least once in their lifetime, but even so, I thought it was worth mentioning. I LOVE this film. I think that what makes it for me is the storyline, just because it's so interesting and yet so light-hearted.

Finally, I wanted to talk about Me Before You, based on the novel by JoJo Moyes. This is quite possibly the biggest tearjerker I've watched, apart from The Fault In Our Stars. I read the film before I read the book and sometimes I find that one is much better than the other, however they were both just as great as each other, in my opinion. Basically, I'd recommend both the book and the film.

So, that's a wrap on my list of films I'd recommend. What are your favourite films of all time?
