#blogtober18 : Day 13 : Movies you have watched a 1000 times …

First of all, I am choosing films I have watched in pleasure.  As a cinema usherette there are some films I watched so many times I could understudy any of the actors, Silence of the Lambs, Terminator 2, Mermaids, etc.. basically anything released between 1991 – 93 I’m pretty familiar with and good for in pub quizzes. However my personal list is slightly different.

I think the list of movies I’ve watched lots has definitely changed since I became a parent, children films feature heavily in my list now but I love them.  Children’s films are spoilt on children, they are so clever with brilliant stories and lots of magic.  Is there a better way to spend a wet afternoon than watching a favourite film with your children cuddled up next to you?  In compiling my list I also realise that a couple are Christmas traditions, Love Actually and Miracle on 34th Street, films can be about a feeling, a belonging.

I can’t decide on my most watched film, it is only between two, Grease and Dirty Dancing, like wise I can’t decide which of the two is my favourite.   Music plays a big part in my favourite films, you can’t beat a great soundtrack.

So in no particular order, my most watched films are


Dirty Dancing

Love Actually

Cinema Paradiso

Miracle on 34th Street (1994)

Four Weddings and a Funeral




Toy Story series

It’ll be interesting to see how the list develops over the years, I think Paddington 2 and The Greatest Showman may feature strongly soon.
