Blogtober Day 13 – My favourite films

Random Ramblings

It’s day 13 of #Blogtober, and today’s prompt is ” Movies I have watched a thousand times”. First things first… I never EVER say Movies. I say Films. Movies seems like such an Americanism. I’m sharing my favourite films today – here goes!

My favourite films:

Grease 2

I love Grease as much as the next person, but Grease 2 was always my favourite. The motorbikes always seemed so cool to me plus the Talent Show was fab! I must have seen it 500 times, and still know it word for word now!

Come on – Stephanie Zinone is so much cooler than Sandy was! I love that she was breaking all the stereotypes even back then…. a girl working in her Dad’s garage is pretty cool in my book! If you haven’t seen Grease 2, definitely go give it a whirl – you’ll realise why it’s one of my favourite films!

Annie (The original)

I know every single word of Annie – it’s one of the films I watched over and over and over again as a kid. Literally 3 times a day some days. My daughter and I regularly belt out the soundtrack in the car. I am basically Miss Hannigan now. Every mum of girls will surely relate a little to this….

I only have one daughter and I can relate. My mum had four daughters – no wonder she liked a good drink haha!

Bugsy Malone

When I was a teenager, I was in a performing arts group. We spent well over a year planning and rehearsing a production of Bugsy Malone, only for it to be cancelled before we performed! While I was gutted we didn’t get to perform, I found a huge love of the show and all of the songs in it. I regularly inflict this album on the kids in the car.

Fat Sam’s Grand Slam and Tomorrow are my personal favourite songs from the film. Have you seen it?

Rocky I-V

The first time I remember watching the first Rocky film with my Dad, and I was about 8. I loved it. I found it so inspiring, watching someone come from nothing and fight so hard for his dreams. In all seriousness, I have seen them all at least 20 times each, but I and IV are by far my favourite films from the series.

I could watch them all again now – It’s been a good 10 years since I have seen them. Let’s not forget the song too – come on…. We’ve all blasted it while cleaning… Haven’t we??


I remember watching this film for the first time in my teens and crying like my own Dad had died. I had never before, and have never since got so emotional about a film. Also… BEN AFFLECK! (Need I say more)? I also developed a bit of Liv Tyler envy, it has to be said. She did redeem herself once she popped up on Lord of the Rings though – loved her in that too!

my favourite films armageddon

I am a big fan of films with amazing soundtracks (As you’ve probably guessed). Armageddon has one of those too! I became a bit of an Aerosmith fangirl after this film was released. If I had to choose one winner, this would be top of the list of my favourite films.

Don’t even get me started on Disney. I’d be here all day if I listed all the films I love, so I will stop here. What’s your favourite film? Does it have a brilliant soundtrack too?

    Oh definitely, Disney Films come into a category of their own! How sad that you didn’t get to perform Bugsy Malone, I must get my kids to watch that, they’d love it I’m sure. I didn’t really get into Grease 2 but I love Armageddon. I watched it at the cinema with a new boyfriend and had to try really hard not to cry. I don’t think he enjoyed the film as much, but I’m a sucker for disaster/apocalyptic movies.

      Hahaha I’m glad I didn’t see it at the cinema – I’d have cried so hard the place was flooded!

    My teen watched Armageddon with me for the first time a little while ago and she cried. She has watched it a couple of times since. hehehe
