Movie greats, according to me


My favourite all time movie would have to be Dirty Dancing. It came out in the late eighties, right when my teenage hormones were raging. It's got hot bods (well one hot bod) and great music to boot.

I love Star Wars. Any of them, old or new. Han solo may have been one of my first movie crushes. I am hoping the new movie, earmarked for 2015, is worthy.

Toy Story...for keeping my kids entertained and quiet, just for a while.

My kids have also loved watching The Wizard of Oz, it is a timeless classic. Hard to believe it was made in 1939.

It is so unbelievably hard to choose just one comedy movie. There have been so many side splitting favourites over the years, and if I started rattling them off I'd be here all day week.

So here is just one of my faves. I love Simon Pegg movies, Shaun of the dead, Hot Fuzz, Burke and Hare and this one pictured, Paul. Think of it like a grown ups E.T., just hell funnier.

  1. Great choices. Have you seen the ads for the new Simon Pegg/Nick Frost movie? I think it's called The End of the World. Looks hilarious! I loved Shaun of the Dead.

  2. YES Patrick Swayze drooool. So sad, he's no longer with us.

    I also love Toy Story and Shrek. Slightly over Star Wars. Grew up with an obsessed brother and now have obsessed sons. Sigh.

    Have a great weekend.

    1. True, so sad. He will always be remembered for this movie.
      I can't believe my son is about to turn 21, and his little sisters are enjoying Toy Story years later than him, even I don't mind watching it. Izzy(3) loves Shrek, the original, she's not so keen on the rest.
      Tut Tut, I will just have to tolerate your aversion of Star Wars ;p

  3. I love the Simon Pegg movies. Also a big fan of Wizard of Oz. It is definitely a movie that has spanned across the generations.

  6. I love Dirty Dancing too. My kids now watch The Wizard of Oz - it's funny because I used to watch it and so did my parents. 3 generations of children entertained by one movie :-)
