Trending Movies


Watching twitter activity, as I have been a while now, led me to discover a Twitter feed tonight discussing movies and which ones to keep. A list of nine had been put out and users had to pick three, defending their choice of course.

Movies are a fickle thing. For every woman that loves a romantic comedy, there is one that doesn’t. (Take note here readers, I am definitely not the rom-com girl). For every man that loves an action movie there is one that will cheerfully accompany his girlfriend to a female based movie. Is there anything wrong with this ideal…

My Dad and I were sitting tonight waiting for dinner to cook on the barbecue. Spotify was entertaining us and the playlist was movie songs. Very random, we didn’t know what was coming next and had a laugh trying to guess the films. My Dad realised very quickly that his daughters music knowledge was good. Not only was I naming the tracks but the artists too. I was then following it up with the movie title. I drew the line at year of release. I am good, not that good!!! 

It started to make us think of movies that we either “hadn’t seen in ages” or  that I had never seen. The list so far is this:

  • 20000 leagues under the sea 
  • Spartacus
  • 12 angry men
  • Longest day
  • Dambusters
  • Reach for the Sky
  • The Great Escape
  • Singing in the Rain
  • the Jazz Singer
  • A Bridge too far
  • Midnight Cowboy
  • Rainmaker
  • Its a wonderful life
  • Casablanca
  • Beverley Hills Cop
  • The graduate
  • Philadelphia 

As I watch them I am crossing off. So dear reader, if you have any more for me, please leave me a comment and I`ll add them on!
