My Top 5 Favourite Movies | 2017

Hi ladies and gents,

Let me start off by saying that I’m very sorry for the ‘delay’!

Now that I’m a lifestyle blog as well, I’ll be starting with something simple: I’m going to list my top 5 favourite movies, and try to write something that will convince you to watch it 😉.

I decided to make this list, because I know how frustrating it is when you actually want to watch a movie, but you can’t find any, because you’ve watched them all or they ‘suck’. So, I hope you’ll find something worth watching in this list!

P.S. click on the movie titles for a summary (on IMDB).

#5 Monty Python and the Holy Grail

If your English is good and your humour is dry, then this movie is perfect for you.

The story of King Arthur in 10th century England has taken a hilarious turn. It shows a low-budget King Arthur, who doesn’t have a horse, but does make horse sounds and hops around while traveling… Yes, weird, I know. He searches for brave knights, worthy of joining his court at Camelot. If you watch this movie, you’ll be stuck with funny phrases in your head, forever 😉 haha. I’m tempted now to watch it again, for the third time…

Ready for a good laugh?


Honourable mention: Life of Brian

#4 The Lord of the Rings

‘The Lord of the Rings’ is a film series with three terrific movies: ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’, ‘The Two Towers’ and ‘The Return of the King’.


The Lord of the Rings is a fantasy, drama, adventure filled with creatures like orcs, hobbits, elves, wizards, dwarves, … and ‘humans’. The story centres around an ancient ring that has been lost for centuries but has been found. Frodo has a quest to travel and destroy the ring in the Cracks of Doom. Luckily, he’s not alone but is accompanied by Gandalf (a wizard), Legolas (an elf), Gimli (a dwarf), Aragorn (my favourite character 😉), Boromir, Merry (a hobbit), Pippin (a hobbit), and best friend, Samwise (a hobbit). I like how they are all totally different but are good with each other and work together. But even then the travelling doesn’t go as smoothly as wanted, they find some ‘difficulties’ along the way.

I love fantasy films, because you can go all out, everyone already knows it’s not real. So, you can expect literally anything.

#3 Bully

‘Bully’ is a documentary about the impact that bullying has on (especially young) people.

Bullying is a subject no one likes to talk about, for some people it’s even ‘taboo’. Do you know the famous phrase? “Oh no, thats not bullying, thats just harmless teasing.”. I can’t understand why some people can’t accept the fact that bullying is a serious, bad action. That’s how bullying keeps on going, because one, parents aren’t educating their kids well, or two because some people are just mean-spirited, which most of the time is because of the people educating them. Now, I probably said something that offended a lot of people. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes parents try their best but sometimes parents dont want to believe their kid is doing something harmful to another child. Which makes it worse, they’re basically telling them its okay to bully and be hateful.

It’s a beautiful, sad, but eye-opening documentary. Sadly, I believe ‘bullying’ will never stop. Not any documentary can stop the phenomenon, but they can let people open their eyes, but only those who want to open their eyes.

If you’re someone, a person like that, please watch the documentary and try to be in the position of the ‘victim’. In the end I hope you’ll keep your eyes open, instead of closing them again.


Honourable mention: Cyberbully

#2 Hachi: a Dog’s Tale

My second favourite movie is a perfect movie for dog lovers.

It’s a true story about a dog named Hachiko that was abandoned. But a kind college professor found him at a train station and took him into his home, with the intention on finding his original owners. However, nobody claimed him, so he kept Hachi within his family. If you want to watch their adventure, please don’t hesitate!

I didn’t shed a tear throughout the whole movie but when the credits appeared, I started crying like a baby for at least 5 minutes (and Im serious). The movie, which is a true story (only it actually happened in Japan, and some other details were changed), shows you that dogs have real feelings like humans do. They really care about their owner (who treats them right). Without them, they’re just so lonely.

It’s worth your time.

#1 Your Name

My favourite movie is one I just watched recently, it’s a beautiful anime story.

At first, I was scared to watch it, because I’m someone who loves to try and feel how the characters in a movie feel. And that’s, because they are real people, with real feelings, and relatable stories (those I mostly watch, though). But I went with it anyway, and I’m happy I did. Maybe the people aren’t real, as well as the story, but the feelings are so realistic. I couldn’t watch this movie without shedding one tear.

In the beginning of the movie I was kind of confused, but don’t worry, you’ll soon understand. But let me tell you some more about the movie: two strangers named Mitsuha and Taki. They live a life totally opposite of each other. Mitsuha is a high school girl and lives in a beautiful landscape, with more green than houses nor people. She lives with her grandma and younger sister high up the mountain, while her dad is the city mayor, living somewhere else. But she doesn’t want to stay in her boring ‘mountain town’, she wants to go to the big city, Tokyo.

All while Taki is a boy living in Tokyo, going to high school, working a part time job. But sometimes, weirdly, he dreams about being a girl in a beautiful mountain town

Go watch it, you won’t regret it!

  4. I laughed when I saw Monty Python and the Holy Grail. One of my all time favorites too. There was a time about 20 years ago when I could practically quote the whole thing. Thanks for the smile. 🙂
