Day 13 of Blogtober is one that has really made me smile, as it is all about movies I have watch a thousand times. The only problem was, where do I start.
My first film has to be Moulin Rouge, I must know this film word for word, and love the music from it. One of the songs Come What May, we had played at our wedding, and it always takes me back to our wedding day. I am a sucker for a love story and this one gets me every time.
I know this will probably be on most people’s list. I remember when Grease came out at the cinema all those years ago, and begging my parents to go and see it. I fell in love with the film straight away and soon knew all the songs of by heart. I have watched it countless times over the years. One of the best moments for me was introducing C to the film, and she fell in love with it as well. She would watch it over and over and we would sing along together to the songs.
Like with Grease, I loved Grease 2, maybe not quite as good as the original, but it still had the same feeling to it. Again loved the songs and loved singing along to them. Luckily C shared my love of the film and we would sit and watch it singing along and smiling.
I love this film on so many levels. I love the story of such strong friendships, I love the humour and feel good vibe of the film, and the way you get drawn in and end up crying your eyes out.
This will come as no surprise to anyone who knows me. My song is Dancing Queen, I have it played whenever we are at a party. I loved this film, the music and everything about it, and yes C has been brainwashed with Abba music.
What is your favourite film?
