8 Films I’ll Always Rewatch




Hey guys!
How are you all? Today I am going to share with you some of my favourite films that I’ll will always be able to rewatch.
I love watching films. There is something so comforting about snuggling under my duvet with my laptop and a tub of Ben and Jerry’s (cookie dough, of course). While I do love finding new films – especially ones that not many people have heard of – it is sometimes nice to watch a film I’m familiar with. I’ll often find that there are way too many films to choose from on Netflix so I’ll end up watching something I’ve already seen before. Although this does mean that I know what happens, there are some films that I can watch over and over again and not get bored of them. These tend to be musicals, childhood classics, teen movies and Christmas films. There are eight films that really stand out.
1. Matilda 
This is one of the first films I ever saw, and I’m pretty sure I’ve watched it at least 10 times since. I know, crazy! It’s such a heart-warming film, and Matilda and Miss Honey are my favourite my favourite characters. I always wanted a teacher like Miss Honey. I love the fact that Matilda can move objects just by looking at them – and she’s so brave. I’d definitely say that Matilda is one of the best films of my childhood.
2. The Sound of Music
The Sound of Music is another film I have watched numerous times. I love the songs (especially My Favourite Things and Sixteen Going On Seventeen), and the setting is beautiful. The interior of the house is stunning too. Julie Andrews is perfect for the role of Maria. She is so energetic and has an amazing voice. The Sound of Music is a timeless classic and I’m sure people (including me) will still be watching it in years to come.
3. School of Rock 
School of Rock is one of my most favourite films of my lifetime. Jack Black is hilarious, and the kids are great. I love Miranda Cosgrove’s character. I also like the soundtrack, even though I’m not really a fan of rock music.
4. Home Alone
Home Alone is the ultimate Christmas film. It features a cute kid (played by Macaulay Culkin), hilarious villains and memorable lines (e.g. ‘Keep the change, ya filthy animal’). I also love the setting of the second film – New York looks so magical at Christmas. I pretty much watch either Home Alone or Home Alone 2: Lost in New York every Christmas. It has me in fits of laughter every time.
5. Clueless
Clueless is undeniably one of the best teen films. The fashion is great (I’ve always lusted after Cher’s wardrobe) and there are so many quotable lines. While Cher is shallow, she is still a likeable character. For those of you who may not be familiar with Clueless, it’s based on Jane Austen’s Emma. Alicia Silverstone portrays Cher, an attractive and wealthy teen who lives with her father in Beverly Hills. When Tai Fraser moves to her school, Cher teams up with her best friend Dionne and they decide to give Tai a makeover in order to make her more popular. After failing to set up Tai with Elton, Cher begins to focus on her own love life, soon realising that the guy she likes was right in front of her the whole time.
6. 10 Things I Hate About You
I only discovered this film five or six years ago, but it quickly became one of my favourite films. I’ve watched it at least three times since. 10 Things I Hate About You is such a quotable films – and it stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles. What more could you want?!
7. A Cinderella Story
i Movie Quotes

A Cinderella Story was released in 2004, twelve years ago! Hilary Duff plays Sam, the ‘Cinderella’ character, while Chad Michael Murray is her love interest. In this updated version of Cinderella, the protagonist lives with her ‘evil’ stepmother, who is obsessed with Botox, and her ‘ugly’ stepsisters Brianna and Gabriella. Sam uses a school chatroom to escape her unfortunate life and meets Nomad609, who turns out to be Austin, the most popular guy at her school. Once Brianna and Gabriella find out, they are determined to humiliate Sam in order to ruin her chances of being with Austin. Fortunately, their plan backfires and Sam ends up with the happy ending she deserves.

8. Mean Girls
How could I not include this?! Okay, it is full of clichés, but it is an absolute must-see for any teenage girl. Even though Mean Girls was released over ten years ago, it is still so relatable – two of the major themes in the film are relationships and bullying. The cast is brilliant too – it includes Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Seyfried (as the ditzy Karen), Rachel McAdams, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
So those are the eight films I’ll always rewatch. I feel like having a movie marathon now! What would be on your list?
 Hasta luego!
